The right tools can help you make beautiful visual content. 

Visual content is a great way to get your message across in an engaging and memorable way. It can be used to communicate a message or show off a product or service, or just entertain. 

Visual content has been proven to be more engaging than text-only content when it comes to social media sharing. In fact, according to Hubspot’s State of Inbound report from 2018, visual posts accounted for 10% of all inbound links shared on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter (versus only 3% for text). And it wasn’t just because they were more visually appealing: visuals also got more social shares! 

Don’t overcomplicate things. 

One of the biggest mistakes marketers make is trying to do too much with their content, making things that are too complicated or hard to understand. For example, if you create an infographic using a tool like Canva, don’t try and add text or images that are difficult for users to read on their own (like large fonts). Instead, focus on creating engaging visuals that explain your ideas clearly without being too wordy in your description of them—this will help make this information more accessible for people who don’t have time or energy available right now but will hopefully come back later when they have some extra time! 

We hope that these 15 tools inspire you to create beautiful visuals for your digital marketing efforts. But creating visuals is only one part of a winning social media and digital marketing campaign.
