From marketing strategies to execution, this team of instructors has “been there, done that” and Canva has been an invaluable tool in their efforts for Downtown Main Street and other businesses and nonprofits. This 4-course series respects your limited time and resources as business owners and organization leaders. First, we’ll assess your marketing goals with the Canva tool. Next, we’ll inspire you to curate and manipulate Canva templates that look like your brand. We’ll have an in-person working session so we can share and learn together. And finally let’s leverage your team by getting everyone on board. We’ll provide manageable small bite-size assignments by providing a checklist worksheet, so you can execute them on a schedule that works for you.
