Just marketing alone can determine the survival of a business even when the product or service is awesome. What good can our product be if no one gets to know or sees the benefits of it? Fortunately, online marketing has been made easier with modern and different platforms for social media marketing posters, banners, and designs.

I accidentally created a Twitch background instead of a Tweet post. Resize function at the top can convert to other social media formats but it is a paid feature. Converting it is easy with Mac Preview by just adjusting the size to 1200 x 675 px for tweet posts.

Placeit has purchase options despite having filtered for free designs only. However, Placeit designs can be more unique and interesting to some.

These resources may help.


There are some platforms that require less marketing or upkeeping of shop e.g. customer service, which definitely should be on anyone’s passive list of income. For example, products listed on Merch By Amazon may somehow generate better sales than elsewhere without much of the creators’ effort in marketing. Another example is designing for product trends, though possibly short-lived, which are more likely to be displayed in visitors’ searches and make sales.

Marketplace platform search results for trends may be seasonal in nature and best selling may indicate evergreen ones.

Canva is the most comprehensive in terms of resources provided and should cover most general social media marketing uses.

PiZap is the least intuitive to use and limited number of graphic resources among the 6 tested, however, their fonts and filters can make your designs stand out from others.

fotor has blog titles templates for free, quick, and easy blog featured image design as well which can be useful for bloggers in particular. fotor also has a GoART feature that may interest those keen on classical art painting styles.

Placeit has a more interesting and modern colorful style design but it will cost for downloading. However, the subscription plan price is acceptable for those who need designs frequently.

For the purpose of this post, the best social media marketing design for the free versions (excluding Placeit), I probably would rank Canva in the first, Stencil in the second and, then fotor in the close third.

Be wholesome.
