Do it Yourself: Easy Facebook Profile And Cover Design
You don’t even need to be very creative these days because there’s plenty of tools developed by very creative people to help you out along the way.
If you also needed help setting up your facebook page I’ve pulled together 6 steps to build and optimise your Facebook Page.
For your profile image, you can use your logo and here’s a quick and easy way to do it.
Easy Logo Design
There’s more if you search about but here are a couple of websites that allow you to create a logo for free with heaps of different options.
Even if you don’t really like them you can still use them for research. Sometimes knowing what you don’t like is just as important in narrowing your decisions down to something you love.
Free Logo Design — a great tool to design your own logo
Free Logo Services — another great self-service design tool
To get somebody else to do it on the cheap you can go to Fiverr and choose somebody to do it for you. It might be worth just taking a look around and not simply going with the absolute cheapest one out there but somebody who has a design style you like.
If you have a larger budget why not try 99Designs and get heaps of people designing your logo and giving you about 30 different options before selecting one?
This is great I’ve used it several times in the past. Basically, designers bid for your work by designing your logo first and showing you their design So everybody who wants your work first has to design your logo so you get a lot of examples and many different styles.
Cover Photo Design
This is the large image at the top of your business page. This is the first thing people will see when they land on your page and is the most prominent. This is very important because this is how a lot of people will judge your business straight away so it must look good.
To design a good one you can find some free images online including photos and graphics on these two sites:
This one below was a great find and I’ve spent hours looking through this site in my spare time. You can use all the photos free and change them any way you want, there are some truly spectacular ones.
After you’ve chosen some images and graphics that suit your business and that you like you may need to edit them slightly, for example resizing them or little touch ups here and there. Maybe even use some stylish filters?
To do this you can use Pic Monkey, sort of like a cool easy to use and free photoshop.
This is one tool I use almost every day. Others exist which are just as good but I personally use this one every day. Canva is a great way to design your cover photo. You can select the correct template that has the exact dimensions you need and start pulling your images in and designing it from there.
Canva is a big time saver. It also has a tonne of images you can use for free or pay $1 for as you use them. Don’t forget you can import your own images you find from other free sites I’ve listed above.
So there you have it. That’s how you can create your own profile/logo easily even if you aren’t creative. It’s actually really good fun.
