12 Ways to Use Canva in Your Coaching Business

There’s a good chance you’re using Canva in your coaching business for things like creating graphics for social media, but when we talk to health coaches, most of them aren’t aware of the other ways they can use it.

This week we’re bringing back an episode we did last year where we covered 12 Ways to Use Canva in Your Coaching Business. The great news about Canva is that the free version is so robust, most coaches never need anything more than that for their business.

If you aren’t sure how Canva can help you, or you want to learn more ways you can use it to save time and money while creating professional-looking projects, this episode is for you.

Here’s what you’ll discover:

  • 12 ways you can use Canva in your coaching business to create beautiful and professional graphics, guides and presentations.
  • The most underutilized tool within the platform that can save you money in your business each month.
  • Where you can get free training videos about how to use each tool within the platform to shorten your learning curve.

What is Canva?

Canva is an online graphic design tool that is easy to use. It’s very user friendly and with over 100,000 templates, you can create something beautiful and attention-grabbing even if you have zero design skills.

There are a couple of options to choose from with this online tool.

The free version is a great way to get started and offers lots of options for your business. Karen used the free version in her business for the first 8 years. It’s only been the last couple of years that she’s upgraded to the paid version.

The paid version is still very inexpensive at $12.99 per month or $120/year.

The paid version allows you to do more customizing such as instant resizing, which is nice when you want the same graphic resized for Facebook, Instagram, and Instagram Stories. The paid version also gives you access to thousands of stock photos which makes it quick and easy to create beautiful graphics.

One thing most coaches don’t know about Canva is that you can also schedule your social media content to 8 platforms.

The nice thing about using Canva is that you can create graphics in any size (static posts, stories, covers for Reels, etc.). You can use their custom templates that are pre-sized perfectly for the particular application you want or you can create a custom size based on your needs. The sky is the limit when it comes to customization.

Okay, now let’s dive into 12 ways coaches, just like you, are using Canva.

  1. Graphics for every part of your business – social media graphics, newsletter graphics,
  2. E-books – free and paid
  3. Vouchers / Coupons / Certificates
  4. Flyers
  5. Presentations / Slide decks
  6. Present slide decks directly from the Canva platform
  7. Business Cards
  8. PDF’s – free downloads, handouts, checklists, resource guides
  9. Coaching program workbooks/worksheets
  10. Logo design
  11. Cover images for your Facebook groups, Facebook business page, website header
  12. Social media planning and scheduling – so if you’re using a scheduler like Planoly or Later you could cancel that subscription and just use the Pro version of Canva

There are so many applications which makes Canva one of the best tools out there for any business.

The last thing we wanted to share is that you can find hundreds of tutorial videos about how to use Canva on YouTube. There are even free training videos on how to use the social media content planner and scheduler which is super helpful if you’ve never done it before.

We hope this episode was helpful and gave you some new ideas for using this amazing online design tool!
