I’m not a graphic designer and I make a living from my Canva designs.

Canva is so easy to use that a design background really isn’t necessary.

It can take some practice to make designs you’re really happy with, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be set!

Since it’s such a breeze to get started, it’s also incredibly simple to make products you can sell for a profit.

Here are a few items that anyone can make and sell using Canva.

Creating a post isn’t the only challenge, either- it also takes time to think of what to post in the first place.

This has created a demand for pre-made Instagram posts and post templates.

You can either use a site like Fiverr to work on custom requests for businesses, with their logo and business name already included in the posts- or you can sell generic templates…
