5 Ways how professional bloggers can use Picmaker to design brilliant graphics
Professional bloggers face a unique problem. Not only should their writing be valuable to readers, but it should engage them visually too.
More importantly, their blogs should pay their bills too.
But, the trouble is most pro bloggers are not trained at visual design. And, words like Adobe, Photoshop, etc. are like Greek and Latin to them.
That’s why we wrote this blog - to all you bloggers who’re slugging it out there. We don’t want you to struggle anymore! Please, enough of your struggles already!

Let us explore 5 Ways how bloggers can use Picmaker to create stunning graphics
Create a logo for your blogging business
A business needs a brand. A brand needs a logo. And, so does your blogging business.
But, hold on - don’t go searching for your credit card to pay for a logo. With Picmaker you can create logos that suit your business easily.
So, no matter whether you’re a one-man army or a freelancer, hop on to our logo templates, and get a great-looking logo for yourself.
Having said that, Picmaker does not undermine the efforts of logo makers and web designers. We’re enabling businesses to start their exciting journeys with simple logos, graphics, which are inexpensive and within everyone's reach.
Use Picmaker-enhanced screenshots to help create fun YouTube videos
Some bloggers have their popular vlogs as well. Using vlogs for tutorials is a great way to teach their audience. With Picmaker, they can take high-quality screenshots out of their blogs and insert those into their vlogs.
Also, every screenshot can be easily edited, resized, and customized to fit the visual context of the vlog. Screenshots were a ‘cold addition’ to high-quality text, but with Picmaker, it is a stylish way to remind your audience about your awesome content.
Create stylish surveys for their followers
If you’re a blogger, you’d know that your blogs exist for a purpose. Of course, bloggers use keyword research tools to zero in on the topic they’d like to write, which is great.
But, what better way to write blogs that your readers want to read. And, we can hardly stop ourselves from suggesting a quality survey maker to set up colorful and fun surveys that look professional too!
Such surveys are great ways to beat boring one-way questions that respondents hardly enjoy. So, go ahead and give these cool surveys a shot, we assure you it’ll be time well spent.
Use Picmaker’s graphic editor to create surveys that have cool banners and graphics. That way, you are contextual in your approach and you can retain their attention for longer.
Write an 'About Us' webpage using screenshots
Seeing is believing.
So, instead of writing drab homepages, why not provide screenshots of your achievements? It could be screenshots from Google Analytics, or a Facebook ad account that drove tons of leads and revenues.
Or, share screenshots of customer testimonials that you’ve received. Seriously, is there a better way to prove yourself to your potential customers? Nah!
Don’t forget to use Picmaker’s advanced photo editing features to enhance the look and feel of your screenshots - it could be highlighting, or small boxes that pop out. Picmaker lets you show off in the right way.
Besides, if you’re using contact forms for leads to get in touch with you, you could use a screenshot to mark the fields they need to fill in. Talk about handholding online. :)
Every screenshot had a plain result of the given word that needed to be "wrapped up" differently, and many, many results each tool gave him.
Create an infographic for your blog post
In 2018, Picmaker was created by Animaker founders. They were (and still are!) a bunch of enthusiasts who believe that unique design should be available to every person on the planet.
And, that’s why bloggers love them. Because they can create infographics for a blog post with no design skills. Infographics aren't about adding value to the content, but about compressing boring facts and tiring numbers into a fun visual that can tell a compelling story.
Use Picmaker's stunning poster or infographic templates to create visuals that can wow your audience. The best thing about these templates is that they're free and easily editable.
Wrapping it up (like a candy)
