You don’t need to be a talented graphic designer to pull off some amazing social media posts. These days there are numerous apps and websites where you can create amazing artwork for any social media site for free. In fact, we’ll list our favorite ones below this piece so you don’t have to go searching. Be sure to also keep an eye on The Digital Bakery’s blog for our latest picks and tips when it comes to designs.
Many of these social media design sites have free templates you should use to influence your designs. Just change some titles, pop in a picture of your products or services and you’re good to go. Remember in most cases less is always more. Make sure you are getting your message across and the design is not taking away from your Call to Action.
