I am so excited to be sharing my favorite Canva Pro features! These are the things that have really sold me on using this software and have made it worth the investment for me in my business. There are many other features that Canva has to offer but these have changed the game for me in terms of using Canva altogether. 

I used the free version of Canva off and on for years and never really loved it. It was fine but wasn’t exactly what I needed if I was going outside of Adobe. Once I started working more with branding and website clients, I found these features to be so helpful for them. 

These Canva Pro features are a total game-changer for any entrepreneur or online business owner who has a small budget, small team, or no design background. If this is you, girlfriend you need to try Canva Pro for your content creation. If you have a podcast, YouTube channel, or even just posting on Instagram. These features can help you put a designer’s touch on your content pieces and make it more appealing to your audience.

The font library with Canva is unmatched and it is such a game changer to have all of them right there at your fingertips as you are designing.
