An image can convey a thousand words. A reader will quickly like and purchase a book if it has an appealing cover. Similarly, attractive product images and visuals persuade buyers to buy a product. It helps small businesses to communicate with and develop trusting connections with their customers and provides them assurance when making purchases without investing a lot of money.
Creating a professional design is no more a tedious task for entrepreneurs with the help of Canva. Let’s learn more about the application below.
Canva is a cost-effective alternative to hiring a designer to produce high-quality designs. MSME owners can use images from their collection of more than a million stock photos, illustrations, and icons to design various product images.
The free version is suitable for individuals and small groups working on quick projects. Here are a few benefits of using a free version:
Canva Pro is useful for individuals and small teams who need more customisation and productivity. It has various layouts and templates which are available to subscribe/pro audience. Any icon which shows Pro anywhere in the app says that it is a paid service. Even if it costs $9.95 (820.06 Indian Rupee) per month, it is available for a 30-days free trial once a person is subscribed.
Canva Enterprise is another premium version of Canva designed exclusively for businesses. It has a variety of features like custom branding, team collaboration, and advanced analytics that are not available in Canva's regular version. It costs more than Canva's standard version ($30; 2,472.55 Indian Rupee per month). However, it is still substantially less expensive than other design tools available in the market.
