Design Engaging Images For Your Social Media Posts

06 March, 2015

What once seemed to be such a time-consuming task has now been made easier, more convenient, and downright easy thanks to Pablo by Buffer. To design engaging images for your social media posts is now possible with an easy and free designing tool.

You can now create and share images for social media networks with a text overlay in just 30 seconds.  It's time to generate social graphics! Great news for content marketing. It's time to start playing—whoop whoop. 

Did you know that...

Tweets with image links get 2x the engagement rate of those without.

and that.

Posts on facebook with photos  get 39% more interaction.

With this in mind, Pablo by buffer gives you a great chance to start posting images with text overlays onto your social media. In turn, get ready to see an increase in your engagement rate if your fans and followers enjoy what you are posting, of course.

Pablo is an easy tool to use and to add to that, it is also free and does not require you to have a Buffer account. All you need to do is log on to the website and start creating. You have the option to post straight to Facebook or Twitter directly or download the image onto your computer and use it elsewhere. If you want to, Pablo also gives you the option to log in with your Twitter or Facebook account. So 3 options, all easier than the other, to get you started with this super cool tool.  Here is a look at their homepage.

As you can see, it is clear cut, simple, and very easy to use. You have the choice of using the preset images provided by Pablo, or you can upload your own .jpg or .png photo of choice. You then type in the text you want to appear on the overlay, choose and the font, color, size, and background, and then tadaaaaaaaa, you are done and ready to publish. You also are lucky enough to have a preview on the right side of the screen for you to check and verify your image before you publish or download it. 

Coming from someone who spends much time online creating content, this is one of the best tools that has been created, in my humble opinion. So a huge shout out and thank you to Pablo by Buffer. :-)

Adding a little spice to this great piece of news, you can get very creative using Pablo. It does not merely need to be an image with a quote or simple text on it, you can go as far as creating invitations, memes, call to action, ads for items for sale, jokes, and the list goes on and on and on..... Here are few samples of what you can do with Pablo.
