Design and Sell Canva Templates
One of my favorite ways to make money with Canva Pro is selling templates. (PSST have you seen my template shop).
Canva Templates are popular in marketplaces such as Creative Market and Etsy. There is an endless variety of the types of templates that can be offered. They can be products you add into your business such as a Pinterest Manager or Social Media Expert could offer bundles of Canva templates they sell that fit in with what they teach.
Pro Tip: You can outsource the design process if that’s not your thing. Just be clear with the designer of your intended use.
Offer Graphic Design Services
You can offer design services using Canva Pro. You don’t need a fancy degree or super expensive software. Create a portfolio to showcase your skills and outline what you want to offer. This can be social media packages like the ones mentioned above under Virtual Assistant or you can also specialize in certain design areas such as:
- printables for clients (this is how I got started)
- creating and setting up branding in Canva
- designing custom templates for a brand
- designing web and blog graphics etc.
- designing graphics for certain course platforms
I suggest narrowing it down to a niche and a few services you enjoy most and feel comfortable with to get started. As you grow you might find you get requests for other design services.
But I’m not a Designer or Very Creative…
Maybe you have the itch to use Canva in your business but you don’t know where to get started with design, or you feel like design takes too much time.
Don’t Give Up before you even start! One of the best business lessons I’ve learned is that I do not have to do it all (in fact, I don’t have to do it all even if I know HOW to do it).
You can use Canva templates to get you started with your designs. I suggest using premium templates purchased outside of Canva when working with clients. This helps your designs not be cookie-cutter or overused. You can even join a Canva Template Membership so that you have new designs to work with all the time.
