It’s extremely easy to get caught up in all the elements needed to make a social media post. There are new apps released every week (or every day) that aims to simplify the process, but it’s hard to keep up with the latest & greatest. Today I’ll break down some of my favorites to use which most have free and subscription based levels.
Evernote – to collect your notes
I’m getting back into using Evernote after having an account for years. I enjoy having the access to the app their iOS desktop app, iPhone & iPad apps and website. Evernote allows you to organize thoughts and web clippings into notebooks and tags. I will admit it takes some getting used to organizing notebooks, individual notes and tagging items, but well worth the effort.

Canva – to design images in a pinch
Canva is a free tool which offers templates for common ad sizes for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, blogs, podcasts, you name it! Also there’s a custom option when you can’t find a template to fit your needs. Canva also sends tutorials and alerts of new product sizes to your inbox (examples include: menus, business cards, invitations and more) with great information regarding design basics. If you need stock photos or icons for your creations, many are free, but others are available for $1 each. There’s a Canva for Work paid subscription option where you can quickly resize images for different platforms and create templates.
