I wrote a blog post a month or two ago called 10 Amazing Free Instagram Tools You Should Be Using. In it, I listed a variety of tools that can help you with your Instagram account. I listed some scheduling tools and graphic design tools.
I love writing about tools that can help my readers. I also love creating graphics for my blog. It was definitely a win-win situation. I loved playing around with Visme to see what graphics I could create.
What is Visme?
You may be asking what makes Visme different from Canva, PowerPoint, Piktochart or Google Slides? Visme is the only tool that allows you to add interactive features to static content. You can add:
- add video or audio
- embed polls, maps, and forms from third parties
- animate any object and assign tasks
- track traffic and engagement from your content
Visme vs. Canva
Canva definitely doesn’t offer nowhere near as many features for infographics. It’s a lot easier to edit infographics on Visme.
I was able to easily create my own infographic in a matter of minutes. I never created one before.
It was easy to add statistics, pie charts, etc. Charts and graphs always confuse me. Yet Visme made it so easy.
Visme has a good selection of social media templates just like Canva. Visme even has Facebook ad templates and Twitter ad templates.
Plus they offer proposals, ebook, and report templates. If you have a Canva for work account you will love Visme.
Visme vs. PowerPoint
Visme gives you the ability to track user activity. For example, you can see when the last time someone edited a project.
It’s easy to do create graphics. Whereas with PowerPoint it’s just for presentations.
Who is Visme for?
If you are looking for a Canva alternative Visme is for you.
If you want to create reports, infographics, and presentations for work Visme is for you.
For example, if you want to download a project for offline use you have to upgrade. Below is a picture of their pricing plans.
You can set your own branding requirements too. I also love that Visme allows you to upload your own fonts. Which means you can go to Google Fonts, then upload them to Visme. I even created my blog title graphic for this post with Visme.
My only complaint with Visme is that they don’t offer as many free templates as Canva. If you don’t have a premium account you can’t use a lot of their templates. But if you’re looking for a Canva alternative and don’t mind paying a fee then you should checkout Visme.
