Updated: May 26
If there’s one thing the pandemic has done, it is to get us even more familiar with various technologies! With people spending more time at home, the New York Times points out that people have increased their time online. People are increasingly looking to connect with others via social media. And that’s why it is so important for Parent Teacher Associations to step up their social media game. This blog will share some free tools to help parent teacher organizations make eye-catching posts.
Here are some of the best free social media tools that can be used for your PTA:
Canva is one of the easiest and most comprehensive digital tools, especially if you are a graphic design beginner. Complete with ready-made templates, a user-friendly interface, various fonts, and adjustable image sizes, Canva is your go-to social media marketing solution!
Hold on; I know what you’re thinking – isn’t PowerPoint meant for creating business presentations? It sure is, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it as an effective tool to create your social media posts! PowerPoint’s tools and templates are a perfect fit for designing stunning graphics, and that too in an insanely easy manner. Individuals can choose from various backgrounds, texts, colors, icons, and graphics to create their posts as if they were making a presentation. All you have to do is save it as an image; you’re all set!
This one’s a bit less heard of, but it’s just as great! Easel.ly offers a lot of customization offers that other tools don’t. You can add charts, pictures, and designs to their templates and have the freedom to choose between pre-made or customizable layouts. And the best part is that this platform operates on a drag-and-drop basis, making it a breeze.
With Placeit, you can design logos, templates, and videos with simple clicks. With a large variety of pre-made templates, users can customize these existing designs to their preferences. Not only does this give them a solid starting base, but it also saves time and makes it easy for those with little graphic design training.
To take your social media game further, you can also make Zoom backgrounds. Usually, creating these is the work of a combination of tools. You can find royalty-free photographs using sites such as Unsplash and RawPixel, after which you can edit them with tools like Pixlr, Fotor, or even PowerPoint.
There you have a few tools that will add some pizzazz to your social media posts. So, get these free tools today, and make your PTA or PTO’s social media channel the one parents surf while at home!
