Envious of another real estate agent’s social presence? Do their posts seem more polished and professional than yours? Feel like you could never get your posts to that level?

Truth is, you can step up your lackluster social game. All you need are the right tools.

Graphic Design Made Easy

Let me introduce you to Canva. This free online tool produces great results with little effort. With over 60,000 templates, Canva can help with social media posts, email campaigns, flyers, presentations, infographics, and more.

An intuitive drag-and-drop editor makes tweaking templates simple. Change colors, add your own photos, apply Instagram-esque filters, update text, and download an image ready to share with your Instagram followers.

Design on the Go

With Canva, you aren’t tied to a laptop. The platform offers iPhone, iPad, and Android apps.

The apps connect to your device’s photo library to add a personal touch to templates before sharing directly to your social streams.

Millions of Images

If you have your own photos, upload them to Canva. It will make the design unique.

Should you need a background image, Canva has you covered. Choose from hundreds of free backgrounds.

Some templates come with premium images. To use those photos (remove the watermark) is only $1.00 an image.

Stock Photo Gallery

Head to Stock Photos by Canva for high-quality images that can be used in and out of Canva. At $10 a photo, it is a cost-effective alternative to source like iStockPhoto.com.
