What you'll learn over the next 5 days:

It's easy

Once you get the basics down (ahem, after you take the free training perhaps?) Canva is the easiest design platform around which means you don't need to be a superstar designer to get your marketing created and out into the world.

Yes, there's a pro version of Canva that offers another level of fabulous design elements BUT their forever free option is more than enough to get you creating stunning (like really stunning) designs for your real estate biz.

If you're looking for a creative outlet that also gives you full control over your marketing, Canva might just be the fun hobby/essential business tool you've been looking for. Playing with fonts, colours, layouts, templates for hours AND saving yourself the pricey designer bill to boot! That's a heck YES in our book!

It's free

It's fun

WHAT PAST STUDENTS ARE SAYING

I have watched the Canva videos. I have plunked around the Canva Website. I can say that I honestly learned more in the five short videos that Melanie presented. PLUS she shared concrete examples that I could use. I am absolutely thrilled that I can now create my own Canva products.And Melanie is so personable, she has a natural talent for teaching others.

I loved 5DTC! I just became a real estate agent and I needed to learn all about Canva so I can start making some great flyers and business cards. This course helped so much!

So many great tips! Melanie dove into things I didn't know about. I had no idea that you could see other photos and the mockup feature.

FROM suzanne

I have been using the free Canva for a while and sometimes would get frustrated because I did not know all of the full cool features that you showed in you 5 day sessions. I have now found easier ways to maneuver through Canva without frustrations because of the tool that I have learned.

WHAT PAST STUDENTS ARE SAYING

Amazing! I'm coming from a utility company that did not allow me to use these type of tools, so I was clueless starting out in Real Estate and watching all my peers use Canva to create value in their social media posts,(also something I'm trying to get used to!) Now I feel like I can do this and be dangerous! LOL!

FROM DENNY

Hi, I'm Melanie

Confession: I lied during a job interview so I could land a sweet gig as a marketing manager for a small boutique real estate office. Was it cheeky? Yes! Was I scared out of my mind, HECK YES! But if I had to do it all over again, I totally would because that fib propelled me to where I am today: the proud owner and creative director of a successful marketing business specializing in helping realtors create personal brands (and businesses) they LOVE!

I spent years (and thousands of hours) honing my craft, learning the ins and outs of ALL the design programs (this was all happening many years before Canva hit the scene), so trust me when I say, I know EXACTLY what it feels like to be completely overwhelmed by learning new and scary things. I went from zero design capabilities to becoming the go-to custom graphic designer for Toronto realtors.

I'm so over "complicated" in my business and I'm sure you are too! I've designed 5 DAYS TO CANVA to take all the overwhelm out of the platform and get you werking it in 5 days flat. Just hit that "I'm in" button and let's get you on the Canva bandwaggon rockin' your marketing and DIY design once and for all!
