Five tools to create social media visuals on the go

Check out five tools we recommend to help you create social media visuals on the go..

Marketing is one of those jobs that has people running about everywhere – one day you could be in London organising an even and the next at a conference networking. Being able to create fun, engaging and professional content on the go is essential.

We have chosen five social media tools that will assist you when you need to quickly put a post together on the go.



We start with Canva because it is consistently one of our favourites.

This is great for accounts who want to deliver professional, visual social media content quickly. You can use this tool on a smart phone or via a computer.

Canva is made by designers, developers, artists, marketers, investors and advisors for the latter which is why it’s so great – it understands why you need it, that you need it now and that it has to be easy to use.

You can guarantee that Canva has a vast range of social media artwork in all shapes and sizes ready for you to add, chop, change and edit however you like. You can even add in your own images and logos!



If you need a logo then this is the right app for you. DesignEvo has a quick and easy to use website and can also be viewed on any smart phone.

There are a variety of already designed logos to choose from and you can even start your own logo from scratch. There are a range of pre-loaded images and texts which will assist you along your way to create a quick, simple but effective logo.


Quik by GoPro

The makers of GoPro have created this free awesome video editing software which promises to create professional videos within just a few taps.

Choose your favourite photos and video clips and then let the Quik app work its magic.

There are lost of features which make sure you can customise your video to your desire and they even include soundtracks and filters to help you attract your audience.

A new feature to this tool that we are obsessed with is the new QuikStories which allows users to create short, snappy, video content specifically for social media.



Snapseed is a great tool when trying to get the perfect filter.

This tool is mainly used on Instagram because Snapseed will help you create professional, modern looking photos whilst allowing continuity to seep into your news feeds.

Often the colours of your photo may not compliment each other but having the same filter spread over your Instagram news feed will give them a recognisable look which audiences will relate to your brand.



Resizing images to fit onto the correct social media platform is by far a frustration but using the InShot tool will take that frustration away.

The highlights of this amazing tool means that you can quickly resize any picture or video so that it doesn’t look out of place on your social media platforms.

Getting this right is more important than ever because video content is the most popular way to post content.

Our social media management team manage social media campaigns so you don’t have too. However there will always be the need to post on the go! I hope our 5 tools help YOU manage your social media more effectively. Let us know what you use.
