As a business owner, creating content for social media platforms can be difficult, especially if you aren’t equipped with skills in graphic design, photography, or videography. That’s why I created this list of 5 foolproof and free-to-use apps that will help you boss babes create and organize engaging content for all of your social media accounts:
1. Spark Post
This app, created by Adobe, allows you to create stunning graphics and videos that can be used for your social media platforms. The app includesprofessionally designed templates for any social media platform.I personally use this app to create animated video graphics for my Instagram stories as well as engaging animated content for the social media profiles of my clients.
If you are searching for free and beautiful stock photos to add some pizzazz to your social feed, you need Pexels in your life. Pexels provides thousands of HD, top-quality, stock photos and videos on its platform. Another plus, all of the photos and videos on the platform are easy to find and search for by simple keyword association.
If you haven’t heard of Canva yet, you’ve clearly been living under a rock. This easy to use design app allows you to create stunning graphics in no time!

Want a quick and easy way to edit your photos before posting them on social media? VSCO is the app for you! If I don’t have time to edit my photos using Adobe Lightroom, an easy, time-saving alternative is VSCO. I usually use VSCO to adjust things like the cropping of the photo, exposure, highlights, shadows, sharpness, etc. The app also includes tons of moody filters to add to your photos if you’re into that!
Creating engaging social media content for your business or personal brand starts with finding, utilizing, and leveraging the right resources and programs.

As a business owner, treat your social media profiles as if they were your babies. If you had the choice, you would feed your baby only the best, most organic, nutrient-packed foods, right? The same thing applies to your social media feeds. Only showcase your best, most organized, idea-packed content. This is the content that will resonate with your audience and promote engagement.
