Unlocking Your Creative Potential: 10 Lucrative Ways to Make Money Using Canva

Despite what you may think, there are many lucrative ways to make money using Canva. In fact, unlocking your creative potential in order to make money as never been easier.

First of all, let me explain what Canva is and how you don’t have to have any graphic design experience whatsoever in order to use it or make money from it. 

Canva is  an online graphic design platform where you can easily make eye-catching graphics, from social media posts and webinars to business cards or logos and everything in between.  

I know what you’re thinking….but I have no skills when it comes to designing things.  And let me assure you, neither do I!   None whatsoever!   But the beauty of Canva being a lucrative way to make money is that for those of us who lack the creative mind to design on our own, canva provides pre-made templates for you to utilize.  With its user-friendly drag-and-drop tools, you can pick from a treasure trove of templates, fonts, and images to bring any idea to life.

Think of Canva as your artistic sidekick that helps you design without the fuss. Whether you’re crafting a presentation, whipping up a poster, or designing a cool Instagram story, Canva’s got your back.

It’s perfect for anyone – from beginners who know nothing about design to seasoned creators looking for a quick and effective way to bring their visions into the world. So, if you want to turn your ideas into visual masterpieces without the headache, Canva is the go-to place for unleashing your creativity and yes, you can even make money from it!

If we’ve never met before, my name is Brooke Amber and I teach burnt-out healthcare professionals how to launch, grow, and automate a business online so you can ditch the stress and create a life of freedom doing what you love!

Note: Summary of this episode is below. To watch the full episode of using Canva to make money, watch the video above.


In the ever-evolving digital world, creativity has become a powerful currency. For those like myself with no graphic design skills at all, Canva has emerged as the ultimate playground for me.  I literally don’t know what I would do without this website and it is probably the most used website in my business.  

Canva has a free version and a paid version.   The difference between the two is that with the paid version you have access to a lot more features and images that you don’t on the free.  You can certainly use the free and do just fine, but in my professional opinion, the paid version, which is fairly inexpensive, is worth its weight in gold!  

With its user-friendly interface and an extensive array of design tools, Canva empowers individuals to transform their imaginative ideas into stunning visuals without the need for complex software or a design degree.  In fact, if you have not imagination at all, Canva is even more for you because Canva does all the design thinking for you if you need it to!

But what if I told you that your creative endeavors on Canva could go beyond personal projects and become a source of income?

In this blog post, we’re diving into a realm where your design skills meet entrepreneurial spirit – a world where Canva becomes not just a creative outlet, but a pathway to financial success.

Whether you’re a seasoned designer looking for new avenues or a creative enthusiast exploring the vast possibilities, join me on a journey as we uncover 10 lucrative ways to make money using Canva.

I’d like to share a true story with you about someone who found a very lucrative way to make money using canva. It’s about a girl who graduated with a college degree but decided to take a year sabbatical. But, she didn’t want to go back home.

Rather, she wanted to find a way to make money online. So she chose canva.  She decided to focus on the health And wellness niche. Although she had no experience under her belt, she did know a little bit about canva.

She wasn’t a graphics designer but she found businesses that needed help marketing and started creating things like thumbnails, IG posts, etc. She contacted them and charged them $500/month to do this for them. That is the type of potential a person can have with Canva. Isn’t that a cool story?!
