Building Digital Assets in Canva

So, as you can see there are many many possibilities to grow your online marketing business assets using any number of templates available in Canva. But, for the purposes of this post we will stick with the Pinterest Pin template using several Neon styles.

Step 1 – Choose in this case the Pinterest Pin catergory which takes you to the Pin Templates to the left of your dashboard. It will appear in the design studio.

Step 4 – Once you are satisfied with your Neon inspired pin, now you can save and download the pin to your hardrive then upload it to pintrest and publish it to the platform.

Pinterest engagements are very affective in attracting visitors to your website posts, youtube videos and so on. You will have to rigister for a Pinterest account if you haven’t already done so.

Let your Creative Juices Flow in Canva

Whether you are the arty type or not, the Canva experience can inspire your creative side and get your juices going while building stunning effective digital assets to draw attention to your posts, reviews, blogs and products. Since the experience can be time effective also in the sence that you yourself can create Canva pins in minutes, you can save yourself a lot of time and money not having to outsource to others if this is something you do. Try it yourself and increase your profits – it literally can take just minutes to create stunning pins that stand out in a crowd.

The Ultimate Goal is to Convert your Visitors

Speaking of Crowds, it can be hard to stand out but using the various elements supplied to you by Canva means having the ability to change all of that. Canva also continuosly adds new and exciting elements to the design studio. I have often been surprised with new and trending elements that have been added to the design library but this only motivates me to create. I even now find myself coming up with new ideas that I am excited to share with my target audience and it certainly makes a differnce to traffic conversions. In the end this is the ultimate goal for any online affiliate marketer, I’m sure you will agree!


There are certain important tools to help you grow your brand and presence online and Canva for sure is one of the tools I have in my arsenal kit. I have the Pro Canva version but you still have a lot of choices in the free version. Content is King as an online affiliate marketer and therefore having tools to make this job easier but still have a very professional feel and look then Canva can certainly deliver on that.

You could even become an affiliate yourself as a Pro user to earn points which you can exchange for Pro items within the design studio. Getting Started with the free version will be enough though to build an impressive aray of digital assets sure to attract the eye of your niche audience. Have fun and enjoy!

  1. Wha a great post! Seems very easy to learn in Canva, a huge list where you want to select. Almost all we need to attract visitors canva is the right place to visit. I have a question, if I want to try in video making is there any free tools also in canva? 

    I like your site, so informative and easy to understand. I have to bookmark 🙂 

    Thanks a lot, 


    • Hiya Ed!

      Glad you found value in the post Ed. To answer your question, the tools for making video is not in canva but they have a selection of video clips which you can search keywords to find what suits your needs. However, you can upload your own video (and image) up to your Canva using the Upload icon in the menu of your Canva dashboard on the left of the screen. It will also add your uploads to your dashboard so you can grab them when ever you like. 

  2. Rina,

    I love Canva!  I used to use it to edit photos for facebook parties through UBAM books but I have recently done as you have suggested and started to create my own content on Canva for use on my blog.  It is so easy and the features are amazing.  I did not know that you could become an affiliate with Canva…that is exciting news and I plan on looking into it right away.  I also need to look into creating more designs for products I sell…Canva seems to be a one stop shop for all of this! Any savings on their procing plans?



    • Hiya Kara! Great to have you drop by and taking the time to read the article. Thanks also for the question regarding their pricing. So the free version of Canva is free forever! There are 2 monthly options for the Pro version which is $9.95 per month paid annually or $12.95 paid monthly. So you pay more if paying monthly or save $3 per month if you pay for a whole year.

      The Enterprise version for larger teams who need advanced brand and collaboration control, the price works out to $30 a month and is billed annually.
