January of 2022 will be my five-year anniversary with Canva. This past summer, however, I created the term Fan Base Creator with it as a result. I wanted to share with you today how to get into the creator game heading into the new year. What is Canva you ask? great question.
Canva is a graphic design platform, used to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, documents, and other visual content. The app includes templates for users to use. The platform is FREE to use and offers paid subscriptions such as Canva Pro which I use, and Canva for Enterprise for additional functionality. The most important tool in my creator toolbox helping me build my brand.
Take it from a veteran
Since 2016 I have seen my fair share of memes on social media. Many of which are created with very poor applications, unlike Canva. Nothing erks me more as a creator than poorly created content among NFL fans. Especially when it comes to my favorite NFL team. The Dallas Cowboys, better known as America’s Team.
I’ve often referred to it as the “Poor Creators Adobe PhotoShop.” Mainly because it’s fit into my monthly creator budget perfectly. For many creators getting started in the game, money can become an issue. As a result, you will experiment with different FREE tools (applications) to make memes and share on social media.
For the record, there is no affiliation between the NFL & Canva. Only between Canva & myself. It’s the example I draw here primarily so NFL fans will be able to relate. Does your New Years’ resolution list have becoming a creator on it for the next NFL season?
Fan Base Creator explained specifically with help of Canva
For many years I wasn’t confident enough as a creator to publish video content. Video essentially needs to be a part of every Fan Base Creator’s resume. Unless you’re NFL Memes on Facebook. I share that because Randy Oliver the blogger who publishes written content through his DailySnark blog is earning a handsome living. By sharing Dallas Cowboys memes, and affiliate marketing.
I’ve watched that Facebook page scale up to over four million followers since ’16. Im certain he and other contributors aggregate and post memes surrounding the “Other 31” NFL teams. Once I decided to get into video finally I began publishing content with my PowerDirector app through CyberLink on YouTube.
Here is when my meme-making skills from Canva intertwined. Especially with my new video campaign on Facebook live currently with Cowboys Cousins. I created this video explaining what exactly a FAN BASE CREATOR is, and how YOU can get started. Essentially sharing my creative journey here with you now as a result.
