There are some really great tools to do this and anytime I stumble across new tools that make this process fun and easy, I love sharing them.
One graphic creation tool that I just introduced to that helps you create photos for social media posts for marketing is FotoJet.com. This is a tool that offers templates that allows you to make your own photo collages that you can share online or you can use for print. In an age where the right graphic will help get your content noticed, tools like this gives you the ability to quickly create cool graphics to save and share.
At first glance it reminded me of PicMonkey and Canva (which I love), but this one offered some cool new twists. Like PicMonkey and Canva there are some templates for your social media accounts. You can make Twitter, Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter cover images as well as Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram posts. In addition there are some print options such as graduation and baby announcements as well as holiday and thank you cards. These are available on PicMonkey and Canva – but FotoJet seems to take more of the guess work out of creating them.
So for the twists (don’t you just love it when there is a twist?) FotoJet also offers some cool templates that will help you make a magazine cover and comic strips. This can totally be used for fun – but also allows for more marketing options. The idea of creating a magazine cover or creating a comic strip to get your point across can grab your readers attention because it is a little different from the other types of graphics that are out there.
When playing around with the tools I created a magazine cover! Here is a video on how I used it.
What I really liked about FotoJet was that it was very quick. I didn’t have to think about elements or font. If I don’t have a lot of time to mess around and need to create something quickly, this is really the way to go. I wish I had a little more control over some of the elements, but the ability to quickly create something cool outweighs that.
I also really liked the comic strip and magazine cover options. I like the idea of creating something different to capture my audience’s attention.
FotoJet is a great tool to add to your marketing toolbox. It is free, fun and easy.
