Hey, how’s it going? I can’t believe that it is October already. Where has the time gone?
Let me tell you what I have been up to these last few weeks.
I’ve been busy making graphics with Visme.
Now, I don’t consider myself a graphic designer at all. I have never really been into this kind of thing. I don’t even pick paint colors for my house. My husband does that. It always turns out better when he does it.
But I have been having fun learning about all the cool graphics you can create with Visme.
Visme is an all-in-one content creation tool that can be used to create engaging and interactive presentations, infographics, documents, videos, GIFs, graphs, charts, social media posts, and, advertisements.
Visme was created for non-designers, and pros alike, making it a versatile design tool for businesses, non-profits, bloggers, educators, and students.
Since Visme has been in business for over 7 years now they have been able to spend many, many hours perfecting the program, delivering some of the best in content creation in one, easy to use package.
- Create multiple forms of content in one place.
- Animated graphics, 120+ fonts, and a global color palette bring your creations to life.
- Easy to use.
- Hundreds of templates to choose from.
- No mobile app.
- The free and personal plans are very restrictive.
- Limited storage.
- Expensive compared to other options and it’s not clear what currency the prices are displayed in.
What does Visme do?
Visme has everything you need to make all kinds of cool graphics. Whether you are creating content for your social media, advertisements, infographics for your blog posts, or putting together work/class presentations Visme does it all.
I have been using it for spicing up feature images for my blog posts. I have also created some social media cover images. This is basic stuff but for now it is all I have really needed.
If you really want to get creative Visme has a number of features that will appeal to you.
- Animate any object and assign actions
- Add video or audio to your creations
- Embed content from third party platforms
- Create maps, polls or forms
- Set your own templates and brand guidelines
- Create your own library of slides, content, and media
- Build your brand
- Save blocks of content or whole slides to use in multiple projects
After about 6 weeks of using Visme I haven’t even scratched the surface of all that possible. I will say though, after watching my husband put together a PowerPoint presentation I would choose Visme any day. Fortunately Visme has import/export capabilities with PowerPoint.
My Thoughts on Visme
I really like that Visme is very easy to learn how to use. This is essential for me, I don’t have hours to spend trying to learn a new program.
The templates are great for when you need a bit of inspiration but, are very easy to edit and customize. This of course is another bonus for me.
They also have a great YouTube library of tutorials, which I have found very helpful.
The first downside to Visme is that there is no app. What the heck? I need the versatility of being able to create on the go. Since I don’t carry my laptop everywhere with me having access to tools like this on my phone is a must.
The second would be pricing. Their cheapest plan is quite restrictive, there is no branding capabilities, limited download options, and only 250 MB of storage for $15/month. And I still don’t know what currency that is in. The next plan up which is the one I have been using is $29/month per USER so if you want to add people to your account for collaboration purposes the price can add up quickly. Again, not clear on currency.
Not having an app is a deal breaker for me. Also, at this time the price is a bit steep. I have had fun though and learning how to use Visme has been super easy. I have also learned tons about graphic design from their YouTube videos.
At the end of the day only you can decide what is best for you and your business.
