When it comes to social media apps for your phone, all we say is, “Wow!” There are so many social media mobile apps to choose from! We’re going to keep it super simple and focus on a few of our favorites. Yes, every social media platform has an app for your phone, and they can really come in handy! But did you know that you can also create the content for social media from your phone, too? That’s right, you don’t have to be tethered to your desk 24/7 in order to create great content for your business. Here’s the down and dirty on what you need to create professional looking social media content right from your phone.

1. Our first choice is always going to be Canva for simple, easy to use, ‘every man’ design software. Why? You don’t have to know anything at all about design to create professional looking images and let’s face it, most of us don’t have a background in this area of expertise. There are lots of options that are totally free (and still look good) for backgrounds, designs, etc on Canva. You don’t have to spend a cent to create great looking images. If you choose options which do cost money, you’ll find them to be very inexpensive, and the selection is massive. You can also upload your own designs and photos into the program if you’re so inclined. Canva also has an option that allows you to size your creations specifically for the social media platform of your choosing, so you’ll never again have to mess around with trying to convert the perfectly sized Facebook photo to work with Instagram.

2. Have you ever been envious of Hollywood moviemakers? There’s something so magical about the blending of seamless cinematography and the perfect score. Who doesn’t love a good movie? The good news is that you don’t have to be Steven Spielberg to great a beautiful film! Okay, okay, maybe you’re not going to make the next E.T. with your iPhone, but the iMovie app will help you feel pretty darn proud of your efforts, nonetheless! You can make truly professional looking commercial “movies” for social media with very little effort. Take footage on your phone, edit it with the app, and see what magic unfolds.

3. Last, but not least, is photo editing with your iPhone software. Yes, there are a lot of awesome photo editing apps out there, but your iPhone is equipped to do everything from cropping and straightening to adding filters. With a little bit of time and effort, you can transform your ordinary looking snapshots into works of art.

As useful as these three apps are, I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you that perhaps the best thing about them is that they’re fun to use. Most small business owners do what they do because they love their work. Otherwise, it would be a lot easier to go punch a clock somewhere and leave your work behind after normal business hours. Anything that adds an element of fun to a job well done is worth adding to your daily repertoire!
