So you want to be able to create graphics for instagram quickly. I’m going to walk you through how to create a week’s worth of instagram posts and it will only take about five minutes.
Welcome to the design online show tools and design to save you time for your business online.
Before I take you through me actually creating the graphics, we’ll run through that in real time. Firstly you need to have a bit of a content plan.
It’s good to have a pattern that you regularly follow where you have a few categories that you like to cover each week. Maybe share a couple of quotes, a couple tips, a behind the scenes and one of your product or service. You need to have a rough kind of pattern that you usually follow before you go to create your graphics.
Next up you want to have some templates in place that you use each week. You can use several templates for each of those categories that you rotate through. To take it further you can have a few colour options for each template.
So you have lots of options to choose from and rotate through so that your feed isn’t looking like each post is exactly the same. They all tie in together nicely and you can create them really fast.
Now I’m going to take you through how to use these templates to make your graphics really quickly. I’m going to be using Canva and I’m going to hop in the back end in a minute so you can see. In case you don’t know Canva, it is a free and online platform that you can use for design. It’s really fast, it’s really intuitive and easy to learn.
As I said there’s a free version but there’s also a paid version where you get a few more options. I use the paid version because I use it all the time and it’s well worth the money for me. It’s only about nine pounds at the moment. So that’s what canva is and i’ll see you in there.
Okay so this is one of the template collections that I sell. This is just the normal feed graphics set, the collection also comes with covers for Instagram TV and for reels. There are also story templates and call to action animations for Instagram reels.
The Instagram Collection comes in two colour options bright and neutral. This is the bright one but if you have brand colours you will want to change the templates to fit your brand colours.
Customising the templates to fit your brand is just something that you have to do the first time. Once you’ve done it once you don’t have to do it again and so things will be much quicker second time around.
