Master Canva with Verified Canva Expert: Brenda Cadman | Episode 119

Show Notes:

My expert guest today started out as an owner of a website development agency as well as an owner of a professional organizing business. Brenda Cadman is now one of 25 people in the world who are verified, global Canva experts. She is here to talk to us about more advanced ways to use Canva for your retail business.

We’re discussing how to easily use Canva properly for your business so your online branding and overall marketing presence are consistent, well thought out, and make you easily distinguishable. 

But we also discuss how Canva is perfect for the shop owner and what else you can use it for besides just social media. Greeting cards, welcome packages, signage, bag stuffers, ads and so much more. Listen in and find out how Canva can work for you and how to organize it properly:

  1. Delete and Archive
  2. Review and Rename
  3. Inventory your graphics (use Canva folders)
  4. Create a hierarchy of folders
  5. Create Brand Kit

Canva is an awesome tool that can really save you time as a shop owner and I hope these steps will help you save time in the long run.
