What are some features you can promote to your audience?

Picmaker has hundreds of awesome features and resources. But you cannot go to potential buyers and talk about everything. So we went ahead and asked our users for their favorite features in Picmaker. Surprisingly we found them giving us a few common features. We have compiled all of our customer favorites in this list below.

1. MAD button

What does it do?

Our MAD button gives design suggestions when you click on it. It randomizes the colors, fonts, and pictures to make sure you get randomized designs with each click of the button.

Why do our users love it?

Our goal is to help non-designers and beginners create kickass designs with Picmaker. And our MAD button is a direct testament to that goal. 

Since our users are non-designer folks, they struggle with finding the right colors, fonts, and pictures for each design. So they end up using our MAD button to get tons of design suggestions. 

2. Background Remover

What does it do?

It helps you remove the background from your pictures. Pretty self-explanatory.

Why do our users love it?

A lot of our users feel the need to remove the background from their pictures. They generally remove the background and use it on their YouTube thumbnails, flyers, posters, presentations, etc.

3. Magic Resize

What does it do?

It helps you resize your design into multiple dimensions. For example, you can create a YouTube thumbnail and then resize it to a flyer with our magic resize button.

Why do our users love it?

We found that some users create one design and use it on multiple platforms. For example, we had this user who created an Instagram post and resizes it for other platforms like Pinterest, Twitter, and as a poster.

4. Version History

What does it do?

Allows you to view the changes made to a certain design in the past. If needed you can also click on  ‘restore version’ to undo some of the changes made in the past.

Why do our users love it?

Some users bring in team members who work together on projects. Sometimes they might like a certain change made by a team member. Or the team may decide that a sample in the past was better than what they have now.

In any of these cases, they can easily click on ‘Restore Version’ and jump back to the old version of a design.

5. Brand Kit

What does it do?

Brand Kit allows you to save your brand fonts, colors, logo, and templates inside a single dashboard.

Why do our users love it?

Staying on brand is hard. Making sure you have the right brand colors and fonts on every design is easier said than done. A slight change in color makes your design look way off-brand. We have also had instances where a user ended up using an older logo on one of their designs. They only realized it after they had downloaded the design and taken it to their manager.

Hence most of our users save their brand fonts, colors, logos, and templates in our brand kit. It helps them stay on-brand with just the click of a button.

6. Templates

What does it do?

We have premade templates for everything from YouTube banners to full-size posters. These templates allow our users to get done with their designs in no time.

Why do our users love it?

We want to help non-designers and beginners create great designers with Picmaker. One of the best ways to do that is by giving them awesome software and tons of templates. Our users follow suit and use these templates to design anything they want.

We have templates for everything from YouTube thumbnails to presentations. Our template gallery is also growing at an exponential pace as we hire more people to create these templates.

7. Stock Pictures (100 Million+)

Why do our users love it?

Great designs require stunning pictures. While some design platforms would require the user to upload their own pictures, we made sure that wasn’t the case with Picmaker. We made sure our users have more than enough free and paid stock pictures for all their designs.

Here are some categories that our users love

  1. Aerial Shoots
  2. Minimalistic Images
  3. Food and drinks
  4. Sports and games
  5. Business
  6. People

We have hundreds and thousands of premium-made icons which can be used by our users. These icons serve as a way to add some extra meaning or improve the aesthetic of the current design.

Why do our users love it?

Our users find themselves needing a lot of icons, illustrations, and objects in their designs. Just like pictures, we made sure that they needn’t scour the internet to find these. By creating and curating icons on Picmaker, users find it incredibly useful to create great designs at less than half the time.

How to promote Picmaker’s affiliate program?

There are infinite ways to promote your unique affiliate link. We have tried to consolidate the top and the most common ways below.

1. YouTube:

YouTube is one of the biggest channels to promote your affiliate program. Since it’s the world’s second-largest search engine, it makes a great choice to promote your affiliate link.

Creating videos on a certain use case is a great way to get started there. You can then paste your affiliate links in your video descriptions, channel description & more.

If you don’t have an active YouTube channel, you can also partner with other YouTubers on the platform. Some affiliates then leverage the YouTuber’s traffic to earn commission and split it between themselves.

2. Your Website or Blog 

Your website is one of the best places to start with affiliate marketing. It is one of the places on the internet which you actually own. Consider your website as a small piece of land on the never-ending world of the internet. 

You can write a blog about Picmaker and link it back with your affiliate link. You can link your affiliate link in other places of your website wherever it’s relevant. Some bloggers also create individual landing pages to mention their favorite tools and link them with their affiliate links.

The opportunities are definitely endless with a blog/ website.

3. Instagram

We don’t need to tell you about the impact of Instagram or the # of users on it. It is simply one of the biggest social media platforms on the planet (after Facebook of course). Due to the high number of active users on the platform, it makes a great place to promote your affiliate links.

Affiliates usually add the link to their bio or to their stories. They then focus on creating fresh content like posts, reels, and full-length videos over time. 

You can also partner with existing influencers to promote your affiliate links. 

4. Facebook Groups

Facebook is the biggest social media platform on earth and has people from nearly every corner of the world. But Facebook has seen a negative decline in the reach of posts over the years.

But fret not because some of the groups inside Facebook are still active with hundreds and thousands of users. Facebook groups are a goldmine to promote your affiliate links or even talk about new products in a specific niche.

For starters, you can approach the members and admins of some niche Facebook groups and tell them about Picmaker. You can also conduct events or LIVE sessions to explain how they could benefit from Picmaker. 

If you find relevant posts, you can also leave your affiliate link as a helpful comment. If that seems like overkill, you can write a blog post reviewing the product and leave a link to it in the comments section. Some people might read the review, find it helpful and end up buying a subscription.

There are so many ways to earn solid commissions from Facebook. Creativity is the only limit to increasing your affiliate earning potential with Facebook.

5. Social Media Posts

Social media channels like Twitter, Pinterest, Reddit, etc are also great places to talk about Picmaker and introduce your affiliate link. But make sure to look into their terms and conditions as some of these platforms might be against affiliate links.

A better way is to just find influencers in a certain niche and partner with them. Start with influencers who are very small but have an engaged set of followers on a certain platform. Conduct LIVE sessions and webinars to tap into their existing audience. You can also cross-post on their profile and talk about Picmaker, how it can be helpful to their audience.

6. Courses

A brilliant way to introduce your affiliate links is in courses. If you don’t already have a course, you can create one that helps a specific group of people become better deigns with Picmaker. You can host your courses on tons of partners like Udemy, Skillshare, etc.

You can then introduce Picmaker in the course and use it to demonstrate all your ideas. Wherever needed you can also add in your affiliate links so that your students can buy a subscription. 

If you don’t already have a course, you can contact other course creators and partner up with them. You can contribute to one of their courses or conduct LIVE sessions/ Webinars with them.̧

7. Other groups & Communities

Just like Facebook groups, there are also hyperactive communities on other platforms like Slack, Discord & more. These communities consist of people with a common interest working together.

You can always approach the moderators of the group and build a relationship with them. You can then share your educational content with affiliate links in these groups. You can also go ahead and conduct events, webinars, and LIVE sessions to become an active contributing member of these communities. Once you’re active, the members will trust you enough to take action based on your recommendations.

8. Through Individual conversations

You can also talk about Picmaker with a friend or colleague over an individual conversation. But don’t talk to people with the motive of getting them to buy Picmaker with your affiliate link. Talk to people for the sake of helping them out. If you think they might benefit from a tool like Picmaker, that’s exactly when you give them your affiliate link and ask them to try it out.

9. On podcasts

Finally, you can also go to niche podcasts and attend them as a guest speaker. The end goal should be all about giving intense value to the host and their listeners. Wherever relevant you can try and talk about Picmaker. If it’s more contextual, you can also point them to your affiliate links or any additional resources.

But that’s not all

Creativity is the game when it comes to earning with Picmaker’s affiliate marketing program. Find new ways to promote your affiliate link to people who’d find it incredibly helpful.
