So how do you use Canva to create an ebook?
Step 1: Create your brand kit and mood board
The one thing that you might forget before you start designing your ebook, is to create a brand board. Doing this will save you time, make your life easier and create a consistent brand experience across your design. Once you’ve created your brand kit, you will want to add your brand elements inside your Canva brand kit section to save even more time. You’re already a pro!
Step 2: Choose a Canva template
With so many helpful options, this step might be the hardest part. Go through the themes and think about which template option would fit your content and branding best.
Step 3: Personalize your template with your brand elements and text
This is the fun part. You add in your text and brand elements. You repeat the theme all throughout the template and you do a happy dance for pulling off an awesome and aesthetically-pleasing ebook idea so effortlessly.
1. Make sure the text is legible on your cover and other pages.
You can achieve this by adding a transparent shape or layer over your text or by softening the image. You can also use contrast (dark on light, light on dark) to make the words pop more.
2. Give them their next action step.
What is the most important page other than your cover page? The call-to-action page. Remember to include one call to action on the last (or second last) page. Think about what you want your reader to do next.
3. Split and merge
To make editing your ebook faster, and for ebooks over 30 pages long, you can divide your ebook into sections and use a program like PDF Merge , Easy PDF, or Small PDF to combine your ebook into one design.
