This past July, I met Guy Kawasaki on Twitter while he was speaking at Inman Connect. Leigh Brown, broker-owner of RE/MAX Executive Realty in Concord, N.C., and I were having a conversation about our love of Canva – and he just joined in. I was completely star stuck. You may know him as Apple’s former chief evangelist who was an early adopter of Twitter. I mean, Guy can tweet! He was also an advisor to the Motorola business unit of Google and he has written 12 books.
Anyway, we got to talking about real estate and how he could help more agents like Leigh and myself, so he agreed to host a live webinar exclusively for YPN on how to use Canva to make visually stunning property brochures, blog and newsletter graphics, and more.
I’m hoping our YPN members will take advantage of this exciting webinar co-hosted by Guy and Peg Fitzpatrick, the social media team behind Canva. I’ve been using Canva since January for marketing my listings. The results have been phenomenal. The finished product looks like the work of a professional graphic designer, and yet, it is so easy to use. I can literally put together a property brochure in less than five minutes. I do want to note that Canva can do so much more than just real estate flyers – it includes templates to make almost anything. Also, Canva is completely free. Some graphics are $1, but most are free, and you don’t have to use any of their graphics – you can upload your own.
Here are the webinar details:
- Who: Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick
- What: Webinar on visual marketing techniques using Canva: “How to Make a Fantastic Flyer in 15 Minutes”
- Date: Tuesday, Oct. 14
- Time: 2 p.m. CST

- Register: https://realtors.webex.com/realtors/onstage/g.php?d=926720650&t=a
I hope you will all tune in. The webinar will be available for download and playback shortly after the event.
