I love creating collages for both my blog (see my 15 before 2015) and Etsy shop (gift guide, as shown below).
I shared the software I use to create all of my graphics on the Mac in The Little Black Book for Creative Business – it’s inexpensive and extremely user-friendly. Click here to see a tutorial I created a while back on using that software to create graphics.
For those of you not on an Apple computer, I have created a brief tutorial on how you can create a collage of your own using picmonkey.com (free service).
For a boost in holiday sales, be sure to share your gift guide on your blog and in your newsletter. Make it Pinterest-friendly by including your domain at the bottom, as mentioned in the video.
Happy holiday sales to you! Until next time,
I love picmonkey, and I’ve also found Canva very useful in creating slightly more interesting text.
Lisa, I hope you don’t mind me flagging this up here, but you did say you didn’t mind people lieaving links in comments. I’ve currently got a link-up on my blog show-casing handmade Christmas gifts. When people make their gift guides it would be great if they could come over and link-up to reach a wider audience. You can find the post here: http://byelsieb.com/have-yourself-a-handmade-christmas/ The link-up is at the bottom. Thank you!
Thank you for the share & OF COURSE I don’t mind 😉 That sounds very helpful!
Thanks for that, Lisa! I’ve been using Fotor Photo Collage but PicMonkey looks very similar. And now I’ve got an idea for a “Friday Five” blog post, “Five items that might sell out this weekend” – a post I can do every Friday from now to Christmas, highlighting different things each time. Man, I wish it wasn’t Monday!
I love your ideas, Lorena! Thank you for sharing – and adding Fotor Photo Collage to this post; I’ve never heard of it.
Thank you for this great gift guide suggestion!! Such a wonderful share.
Thanks for your comment, Celeste! Much appreciated 🙂
