You’ve crafted an excellent article or release, and now it’s time to make your content shine. In today’s visual-centric world, captivating visuals are crucial as they catch the reader’s attention first. Your goal is to make those images say, “Read me!”

You might be thinking, “That’s easier said than done,” but thanks to some fantastic online tools, creating standout images is simpler than ever. Here are three of my current favourites:

Canva – My Go-To Design Tool!

I was fortunate enough to be invited to use Canva during its beta phase, and I’m so glad I did. Watching Canva grow and utilising it in my PR and marketing journey has been fantastic. Canva allows you to create stunning images, collages, and more for your blogs, social media, and website. (In fact, all the sliders and store images on my website were created with Canva.)

Canva makes design fun, simple, and accessible. With easy-to-follow templates and customisation tools, it opens up design to everyone. The more you use it, the more creative you become.

Here are three amazing things you can do with Canva to make your content pop:

  1. Create Custom Covers: Design unique covers for Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), Pinterest, or LinkedIn.
  2. Blog or Article Images: Use Canva’s easy templates to create compelling images for your next blog post.
  3. Proposal Covers: Design an eye-catching cover for your latest proposal.

Canva provides all the templates you need to start creating great visuals. Upload your images and start creating today: Canva.

Tagul – Amazing Word Clouds

I love word clouds as they visually share your message using words, and Tagul is my favourite word cloud creator. I’ve used Tagul for everything from blog posts to gifts, and you can too: Tagul.

Create a word cloud for your business:

  • Choose three words that describe your business
  • Add your business name
  • Include your services
  • Select your fonts and colours, and you’re done!

Tagul brings words to life, adding a great visual touch to a blog post, ad, or social media callout.
