Canva is an affordable, design tool for small business owners. With it you can create:
social media graphics
digital products to sell
online course slide decks
online course worksheets and workbooks
and so much more!
If you're short on time or experience and need a headstart on any of these design needs, don't worry, you can even purchase premade templates at places like Creative Market or Etsy.
The free Canva plan is a great option. However, if you anticipate creating a lot of designs, you may want to try out Canva Pro.
