If you have read any of my others posts from my blog, you will already know that my purpose is to help you ‘work for you’ and be successful online with the help of online marketing. Well today’s post is no different. Today we will be looking at the best Free YouTube channel art maker.

When I started online marketing, I noticed that everybodies websites, social media and YouTube channels were so clean. What I mean by clean is the imagery and content was sharp and professional looking. I had always wondered how people were getting such high quality editing on their banners, thumbnails and covers. Sharp content

Create YouTube Channel Art Free – And Use The Same Technique For Other Social Media Platforms

So, where can we find somewhere that will help us create quality art work for our websites and social media pages? I tried many websites, most of them advertise themselves as free and ask you to then pay after you have created ‘x’ amount of artwork.

Some of these websites are:

  • Vimeo
  • Snappa
  • Fotor

And more…

These are still good artwork creators however, why pay for something when you can have it for FREE?

Canva – My Recommendation

My recommended online artwork website would have to be Canva. I have been using Canva for some time and I have used it for my Instagram page (click here) and also my YouTube channel (click here). I use Canva to create my YouTube video thumbnails and also for my YouTube channel banner. The great thing about Canva is it gives you loads of templates for your creation. It not only offers YouTube banner and thumbnail templates but is also offers:

  • Instagram posts
  • Announcement
  • Brochure
  • Poster
  • Presentation
  • Video
  • Logo
  • Facebook post
  • Infographic
  • Invitation
  • Facebook cover
  • Card
  • Flyer
  • Instagram stories
  • Photo collage
  • Resume
  • Business cards
  • Blog Banner
  • Book Cover
  • Desktop wallpaper
  • Certificate
  • Menu
  • Letter Head
  • CD/ Album cover
  • ID card
  • Newsletter
  • Calendar
  • Postcard
  • label
  • Gift certificate
  • Tag
  • Programme
  • Ticket
  • Bookmark
  • Class schedule
  • Coupon
  • Report

and more…

Take a look at some thumbnails I’ve created for my YouTube channel below:

My Final Thoughts

In my opinion Canva is the best website for creating clean and professional looking art for your website. As previously mentioned I use the FREE membership and it still gives my website and social media the professional look it needs. Of course, you can upgrade to the premium membership and get full access to all the content but in my opinion the free membership serves me well.
