Here’s my thought for Writers: Create an entire cohesive media platform with Canva.
Plan Your Book with:

  • A Mind Map
  • A Table of Contents
  • A Planner
  • A Graphic Organizer
  • A Comic Strip

Then go write it!
Once your book is done (or you need a distraction):
Create:

  • A logo
  • A Twitter Header
  • A Facebook Cover
  • A Tumblr Banner
  • A Blog Banner
  • A Website
  • A Book Cover

All with the same graphics and fonts to denote your brand
Once you are “branded,” market that book!
Create:

  • Marketing Plan
  • Media Kit
  • Facebook Ads, Posts, Videos, and/or Stories
  • Instagram Posts and/or Stories
  • Twitter Posts
  • Newsletter
  • Photo collage
  • Post Cards
  • A Bookmark

Obviously, you don’t have to do all these things at once or for every book. But Canva gives you a one-stop platform for creating your brand and marketing your book.
