As entrepreneurs and small business owners we try and tackle every part of our business that we can because “why pay someone else when I could just do it myself” right? We spend hours reinventing the wheel every time we have a new social post or sales sheet that needs to be designed. Only to come up with something mediocre at best, kind of sort of on brand and the frustration of having to do it all over again next week.
We completely understand this process and see it time and time again when speaking with new clients. Good news for you is, there is a better way and that better way is creating templates.
Just like you create templates for invoicing and spreadsheets that get used over and over again, design can be used in the same way. Here is a list of some items templates can be applied to…
- Newsletter emails
- Reoccuring social posts
- Sell and facts sheets
- White papers
- Business cards
- Internal communications
- Blog Featured Images
- Podcast Episode Covers
See an item that you use regularly? How could you apply a template to that specific item?
For example, at Inzpire, we help our clients vet through their social feeds and find common trends in their posts. We pick out posts that could be put into a template, create a template for you and then all you have to do is update the background image or edit the copy etc. We can create templates in PowerPoint or even Canva if you are not comfortable working in the Adobe programs.
This solution will save you time in the long run and ultimately money.
