Why do you need social media graphics?
REASON 1 | Visuals Are More Attention Grabbing and Memorable Than Text Alone
This concept has been around since the beginning of advertising. And if you’re a visual learner this is nothing new to you. A visual representation tells a better story and can play to the viewers’ emotions. We have a shorter attention span and respond better to short and concise messages. Hence the twitter character limit. It’s easier for us to remember a visual post that caught our quick eye.
REASON 2 | People Are More Compelled to Take Action With a Visual
"Visual content is more than 40X more likely to get shared on social media than other types of content." (Source)
Visual content can be anything from a blog post graphic to a picture of your workspace. Get creative. Take pictures of your products or your day-to-day life to get followers to connect with your business on a personal level. The more they feel a personal connection with your business the more likely they are to become customers.
REASON 3 | Useful Graphics Get More Shares Than Text
Quotes are very popular for likes and shares because they express emotion. To run a successful business you need to stay motivated. Quotes are a great way for businesses to spread positivity and motivation and connect with their customers.
REASON 4 | To Attract Readers and Grow Your Email List
To run a successful online business you need to attract potential clients to your website. Blogging is a great way to drive traffic and grow an email list. But to get your content noticed your social graphics need to stand out.
Creating visuals for your blog posts will instantly drive traffic to your website. If you want to see higher conversions on your social media posts offer a content upgrade. A content upgrade is an extension of a blog post. Bloggers add downloadable content into their posts as further reading on a particular topic. An example of a content upgrade is a guide, cheatsheet, worksheet, or tutorial! This marketing technique is used to grow a following and an email list. In order for your content upgrade to pull in real leads and sales you need to show a visual of your it on social media. Just saying you have a "guide" is not enough. The visual is the selling/conversion point.
REASON 5 | Graphics Help You Build Brand Awareness
When graphics are used consistently over several social media platforms people will start to recognize your brand. In a high-saturated business market your brand needs to stand out from the rest. Do this by staying true and consistent with your branding. Take a look at the businesses thriving on Pinterest. All of their pins look the same. Consistency is key.
REASON 6 | Graphics Strengthen Brands
Good, clean visuals heighten your company's status in the eyes of the customer. They make your business look professional. You do that by choosing images that attract your target market. My advice is to invest in high quality imagery from sites like Haute Stock, or Adobe Stock for your social media images.

A bit about me
My name is Kelly Conti.
I'm a graphic designer and founder of Red Lantern Creative.
I’ve been running my own business for over 8 years and have worked with small entrepreneurs to fortune 500 companies on their branding and digital assets.
When first starting out I too had trouble driving potential clients to my website and growing a following on social media. It wasn't until I started blogging and creating share-worthy graphics that I saw an astonishing growth in my traffic and email list subscribers.
The growth was great but the time I spent thinking about content, writing blog posts, creating content upgrades and designing my social graphics in Photoshop was keeping me up until the early morning hours weekly.
Then I found Canva! I created templates for my business and now instead of taking hours to create my social media graphics it takes MINUTES!
I created the templates so I could share my knowledge and expertise with creative and driven entrepreneurs like yourself who want to create professional looking social media graphics.
"Creating my social media graphics could not be easier thanks to Kelly. I was using Canva templates that didn't match my brand. Kelly's templates are so easy to use and customize. I wish I found her templates sooner!"
- Kimberly Villa, The Workshop
"Creating my social media templates was so time consuming and I never felt like they looked professional. Kelly's templates have sped up my process. Plus my shares and likes have increased dramatically!"
