In this video tutorial I’ll walk you through how anyone can easily create beautiful looking Facebook cover photos using a free online software called Canva.

One of the most things that small business owners ask me about is how they can easily create graphics such as Facebook cover photos for their website or social media accounts. Canva to the rescue!

Canva is a free online tool that has tonnes of great features and will allow you add text, shapes, icons banners and much more to images with very little fuss.

In this video tutorial I use Canva to quickly create a sample Facebook cover photo but it can also be used to style any size graphic such as your profile picture, twitter header or even use it for designing your print marketing materials.

Best of all Canva has lots of pre-designed templates that you can use such as Facebook Posts, Instagram Posts, Email Headers and much more. 

Sticking with the example of the Facebook cover photo here are a few ideas:

  • Use your cover photo to highlight an upcoming event such as an exhibition or trade show.
  • Have a sale on at the moment? Make sure anyone who visits your page sees this in your cover photo.
  • Use this space to showcase your beautiful range of products.
  • If you have a fantastic looking retail shop, show it off so people can get a feeling of what it’s like to shop with you.

The list goes on. You can be as creative as you like but remember to keep it up-to-date. There’s nothing worse than visiting a Facebook business page in July and seeing a cover photo still displaying the Christmas sale!
