We’ve said it before and we will say it once more (and probably many more times to come): creating shareable content is one of the best ways to promote your indie studio. This is especially true when it comes to images. Everyone loves sharing images, and if you can create compelling, creative, and interesting images to share with your followers, the higher the odds your images will be shared with your follower’s friends. This can result in more followers and of course, an increase in sales (which is the goal).
Below are some of the best free online tools for creating shareable images for your followers. They’re easy to use, so try them out for yourself!
If you want to create simple, effective images in a matter of minutes, Textgram is the tool for you. Allowing you to mix and match backgrounds, stickers, textboxes, filters, and more, you will have an awesome looking image that is pleasing to the eye and dually shareable. Moreover, Textgram is available for Android and iOS, so you can create your own images on the go!
What can you do if you already have a picture that needs touched up? It’s simple: use PicMonkey. A powerful tool that allows you to provide in-depth edits for your images, it’s arguably the best online photo editing tool out there today. If you feel overwhelmed? Not a problem: PicMonkey offers easy-to-follow tutorials for making your best shareable images. There’s a reason why so many people love PicMonkey, and if you give it a try, I can almost guarantee you will too.
The tools above are simple to use and can help you to create even simpler, shareable images, but what if you want to create a super-simple shareable image wherever you are? In other words, what if you snapped an awesome picture and you want to turn it into something you can share with your audience? That’s where WordSwag comes in: an iOS app that allows you to add beautiful text to any photo on your iDevice. In about a minute, you can turn that regular photo into something stunning, simple, and best of all – shareable.
Look at some of the samples on WordSwag’s homepage, and see what I mean for yourself.
