As you get more involved in social media marketing for your business, you’ll start to note the big gap between yourself and more polished brands: not just images but graphics, including branding, events, infographics, and more. How do you get started when you don’t have a background in graphic design or access to costly design programs like Photoshop? You’re in luck! With our latest Business Bootcamp video, our own graphic designer guides you through a step-by-step tutorial on using the free graphic design app Canva and how to use it for your first branded social media graphics. Watch it below.
