So many of my clients and marketers find design to be a real pain in terms of time, cost and results. Yes, you can get stuff done on fiverr.com and 99designs, and often this can be good quality. But it still costs money to get the right stuff done fast, and when you got zillions of different sized social media stuff to adapt your chosen design for, it really can become and expensive pain.
Using a real, qualified, human being in the UK to design something can be mega expensive (I know, I’ve employed lots of them), but sometimes it is neccessary when you need something that reflects your brand in the right way AND helps increase conversion rates and so on.
So, enter Youzign – a new web-based graphic design software application that has now been released publicly that will allow you to do this stuff yourself, without any previous design knowledge – perfect for small business owners, bloggers, affiliate marketers – anyone who want to take control and bring the cost of design down. This is my Youzign Review.
(I mean, I paid £5,000 for the original design of Topskips.com!)
Youzign is practically a cut and paste, drag and drop editor.
The features of this software are that you can create engaging designs for use as:
– Facebook Covers
– Headers and Banners
– YouTube Headers
– Twitter Covers
– Flyers and Business Cards
– Ebook/Kindle Covers
– Video Graphics
What I like about it is that it has had over 1000 beta testers use it before launch, so it’s thoroughly bullet-proof.
How does it compare to Photoshop?
Well, it’s a lot cheaper and a lot easier to use. In fact, I can’t believe Photoshop have not evolved and produced something similar in functionality – it’s a bit like watching the demise of Blockbuster Video stores. As soon as streaming video came online, they should have sold up and become Netflix. But no, they clung on to their business model to the end. Just like Woolworths and everyone else that’s been consumed by the web.
How does it compare to Canva?
I like Canva a lot, and it’s worth checking it out if you’ve never used it. Basically, Canva is a VW Beetle, Youzign is a Porsche 911.
In a nutshell?
Here’s a webinar about the software that went out before the launch:
