“Canva is a complete time suck! I don’t want to spend a ton of time on this.”

“I just don’t know how to use Canva… it’s totally confusing.”

“My graphics don’t look unique… they all look like I made them with a template!”

Even if you’ve never used Canva before, by the end of the course, you’ll be able to confidently create all of your social media graphics, lead magnets and other marketing materials to support your business or digital course.

I will show you, step-by-step, how you can quickly and easily create images that attract your ideal customer, whether you’re a Canva novice or a regular user.

If you are a course creator, coach or creative professional, you’ll learn how to break out of Canva’s free templates and up level the quality of your designs so they look professional, unique and on-brand with the rest of your marketing.

Christina Torres

“Before Brenda’s course I avoided Canva like the plague. Making graphics for my podcast was such a PITA and everything I made never seemed like it reflected our aesthetic. I knew I was going to need some hand holding. And so glad I went VIP for the 1:1 help and extra support because this Canva noob needed it. Now I zoom through making graphics and don’t curse Canva’s name every week. Thank you Brenda! Such a game changer.”

“If you are new to Canva, or an experienced user – consider this class from Brenda. She is calm and patient and a very good teacher. As someone who is self taught – not very well – taking classes from Brenda has turned my Canva experience from frustrating to success!”

Michelle Dalley

“I’ve been using the free version of Canva for creating workbook covers and workshop flipcharts, so had a little bit of knowledge. It was fantastic to learn about grids, audiogram visuals and resizing. Your step by step approach was easy to understand and follow – in fact, I watched your video on my phone while working on Canva on my laptop. Thanks again!”

Michelle Dalley

Theresa Herring

“This course will pay for itself and then some. As a solo-entrepreneur, Canva has been a go-to tool for me. But I was missing so much of its capabilities being self-taught! Thanks to Brenda’s course, I can create BETTER images AND save a TON of time (which means I’ll be able to work on projects that make me money!). Thanks Brenda! You’re the best!”

Meet Your Instructor

Hi! I’m Brenda Cadman!

I’m a website educator and course creator, and I own Bon Accord Creative, a WordPress development company based in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

I am also a lover of Canva and a Canva Certified Creative.

I  have been using Canva avidly since 2014, when the talented freelance graphic designer I had come to rely on for all of my social graphics moved into a full-time position and was no longer available to provide graphic design support to my business as a freelancer.

I quickly realized that it was going to be a tremendous benefit to not only my bottom line, but also the efficiency of my business, if I learned how to create my own social media images and lead magnets, and other “on the fly” graphic needs.

Fast forward 6 years, and I’m now a bit of a Canva Ninja.

As a creative service professional, I know well the types of social media and online marketing assets  you need to create in order to support your business.

Additionally, as a course creator and podcaster, I’m also intimately familiar with the specific types of images and marketing assets that you may need to create and promote your digital course content.

I’m excited to help you build your Canva confidence in Conquer Your Canva, and I’m looking forward to seeing the beautiful marketing materials you will create.

Christa Hardin

“Love this! I’ve been using Canva for years and you’ve got things I didn’t know plus I just love your clean and fresh lead magnet design. I’ve been dreading this part and now you’ve made it fun. Thank you!”

Christa Hardin

Deborah Brazendale

“This is so, so helpful – thank you! I’ve been faffing around on Canva for a couple of years but I had some ‘Ohhhhh’ moments watching your training (keyboard arrows to make minor adjustments, grouping elements) that will save me a lot of time and frustration in the future.”

Deborah Brazendale

FAQ

Do I need to have Canva Pro?

While you’ll still be able to derive some benefit from this course even if you’re on Canva’s free account, you will need Canva Pro in order to fully implement the tips, techniques and best practices that I teach in Conquer your Canva.

The good news is that Canva is very inexpensive at just $12.95 USD/month (plus they offer a 30 day free trial of Canva Pro)… and it’s definitely FAR less than you’d spend for an hour of a graphic designer’s time.

I’ll walk you through the differences between Canva’s Free and Pro accounts in detail in Module 1, so once you’ve reviewed that lesson, you’ll know whether upgrading is right for you.

Does the course focus on Canva for desktop or for mobile?

The  lessons in Conquer Your Canva will focus primarily on using the desktop browser version of Canva to create your designs.

That said, in the course I will also address some of the key differences between Canva’s regular desktop browser version and the mobile app, and give an overview of how to navigate and use elements in Canva’s mobile app.

How long will I have access to the course lessons?

You will have access to the video lessons for the lifetime of Conquer Your Canva! Which means that you can go at your own pace and revisit the videos anytime you need. No need to feel rushed! Plus, the lessons will be updated periodically. Canva is always improving their platform and releasing new features so you can expect the lesson videos to be refreshed on occasion.

Can I upgrade to the VIP option later?

I am available for a la carte consulting as my schedule permits, but my hourly consulting rate is higher than the rate reflected in the VIP course option. If you think you would benefit from one-on-one consulting services with me, I would suggest taking advantage of the VIP option, if spots are still available.

Do you have a refund policy?

You betcha. I offer a 30-day money back guarantee. If you decide that Conquer Your Canva is not the right fit for you, let my team know and we will refund requests made within 30 days of purchasing Conquer Your Canva. After 30 days no exceptions will be made.

Note that if you’ve joined the course at the VIP level, any redeemed consulting sessions will be deducted from your refund amount at a rate of $100 per consulting session.

What if I have additional questions?

Still on the fence? Not sure if Conquer Your Canva is the right fit for you? Just send me an email with your question and I’ll be happy to get you the answers you seek.
