Unlock Your Video Marketing Potential

Learn How to Create Engaging Videos with Canva

Hello beautiful. I'm Jo, Content Creator and Canva Trainer, and I'm super excited to share with you the story behind my latest creation - How to Create a Video in Canva Including Uploading to Your Socials

It all started after one of my Canva masterclasses, when a student (and one of my friends) approached me with a request for more advanced training. She had a desire to create stunning videos for her business, but felt a bit lost when it came to the technical aspects and how to do it inside Canva.

Inspired by her enthusiasm, I decided to take her suggestions on board and create a comprehensive DIY course that would empower business owners like her to create beautiful videos for social media. 

But it wasn't just that one student who sparked this idea. Over time, I've had numerous other business owners approach me, seeking guidance on video creation. They wanted to harness the power of videos to engage with their audience, but were held back by the fear of the unknown. 

I realised that there was a real need for a resource that would break down the process, step by step, and guide them through the entire journey - from uploading their footage to sharing it on their social media platforms. So, I rolled up my sleeves, waved my magic wand and got to work. 

Drawing upon my years of experience as a Canva Trainer, I poured my heart and soul into creating this DIY course. I wanted it to be more than just a series of tutorials; I wanted it to be a friendly companion, walking alongside as you embark on your video creation adventure. 

I want you to feel supported and motivated every step of the way. You see, I've been in your shoes before. I know how daunting it can be to dive into something new, especially when it involves technical skills. But trust me, with a little bit of guidance and a whole lot of creativity, you'll be amazed at what you can achieve! 

As you progress through the course, you'll find that my style is casual and relatable (and I do have a great sense of humour which does come out!). I want you to feel like we're having a conversation over a cup of tea, rather than being overwhelmed by jargon and technical terms. I believe that learning should be enjoyable and accessible to everyone, regardless of your level of expertise. 

I've been working with Canva for years, experimenting with different features and pushing the boundaries of what's possible. I've made mistakes, learned from them, and discovered creative ways to make videos that truly stand out. I'm here to share all of that knowledge with you, so that you can skip the trial and error phase and jump straight into creating amazing videos for your business.

  • What is Canva and how can it help me create videos for my business?
    Canva is an awesome platform that you can use for creating graphics and now video.

    They have been developing the video side for some time now and it's getting very robust (but that means it can get overwhelming too).

    Let me walk you through the platform and learn how to get the best out of it for your videos.
  • Can I use Canva to create videos even if I have no prior experience or technical skills?
    Yes, absolutely.

    Canva is made for people with no experience or even skills.

    Let me help you to navigate the platform and learn where some of the awesome stuff is.
  • Are there any limitations or restrictions on the types of videos I can create with Canva?
    If you want to be creating lengthy videos that will need lots of editing, then I would probably go with a different option for your business.

    For short, snappy videos (and even some longer ones for your website or YouTube) you can absolutely use Canva.
  • How do I access the step-by-step tutorials for creating videos in Canva?
    I host my courses and my Club in Thrivecart Learn.

    When you sign up, you will receive emails from Thrivecart with details of how to log in and access your course.
  • Can I upload my own videos and images to Canva, or am I limited to using the platform's library?
    Yes, absolutely. You can even record yourself inside Canva.

    Depending on your plan, there may be a limit on the amount of storage you have but I haven't got anywhere near it as yet (I'm on Pro).
  • Is it easy to find and add music to my videos in Canva? Can I use my own music?
    I walk you through finding music that you can use inside Canva.

    If you have your own music, then definitely upload it to use on your designs and videos.
  • Will my videos created in Canva be compatible with different social media platforms?
    Yes absolutely.

    I will be showing you an Instagram reel size but we also go through resizing that into a carousel (which you could use for other platforms).
  • Can I schedule my videos to be posted on social media directly from Canva?
    Yes you can schedule from Canva. However, I don't teach this as it's not something I use.
  • Does Canva offer any additional features or tools to enhance my videos, such as animations or text overlays?
    There are lots of ways to animate and make your video unique and we go through some of those inside.
  • How long does it typically take to create a video in Canva, from start to finish?
    It depends on what you want to see.

    For example, if you wanted an inspirational quote, you could do that in a few minutes.

    Mine typically take me 20-30 minutes depending on how much information and animation I have on there.
  • Can I collaborate with others on video projects in Canva, or is it a solo endeavour?
    Yes, you can share your design with others, especially if you have a team.
  • What kind of support or assistance is available if I encounter any difficulties or have questions while using Canva for video creation?
    If you need help, you can email jo@jodraper.au and I will get back to you within 24 to 48 hours on business days (I don't work Fridays or weekends).
