Sell merchandise designed on canva
  • Attract your audience with your design and canva knowledge and provide them 1:1 classes.
  • Share keywords for canva elements through your videos. Become a canva contributor and promote your own elements through YouTube videos. I have seen many people on canva design Facebook groups where they share their brands. This could be done through YouTube as well.

  • Make yourself a brand and create an account on Instagram and Facebook. Figure out the gaps in various social media online brands. Approach them through your videos as social media managers. Get hired to help them with social media branding
  • Create an Ebook for canva design tutorials, keywords or design tips, etc, and sell ebook online through your YouTube videos. 

Canva is an online platform not just to design anything like logos, social media posts, flyers, banners, youtube thumbnails, invitation cards, etc but also integrated with many super applications. i.e smartmockups and background remover, etc 

Canva presentations, windows screen recorder, and video editing features are unique among other similar platforms. As a canva champion, I can proudly say that there are no alternatives to canva. The recent collaboration of canva with a flourish (an online data visualization and storytelling platform) has taken it to the next level.
