Create Images For Your Needs with DesignCap

As a blogger and social media influencer, I used design websites and software fairly often. There is one in particular I had been using for years which will remain nameless. One day I decided to cute expenses and got rid of that website. Then I realized how much I used it. When I decided to sign up again they raised the prices. I felt like I had no choice though. Having no graphic design knowledge, I needed simple. Then I came across DesignCap.

DesignCap is very affordable even offering a free option. The top tier account is DesignCap Plus and it’s still more affordable than that other site I was using.

Design cap is not just for header images and social media headers though. They offer templates for infographics, business cards, invitations, reports, brochures, and more! Making this a great tool for businesses and entrepreneurs to use too. Create images for your needs. Pull from DesignCaps stock photos or your own.

Here is just one example of the eye-catching templates on DesignCap:

Brochure template front
brochure template back

DesignCap is easy to use and requires no graphic design experience. You can use one of the templates or create your own designs. Add in your own business pictures, change words, fonts, sizes, whatever you want.

DesignCap is localized to 7 different languages including: English, German, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, French, Chinese.

The site was so easy to use. They offered more options for images, icons, colors, and fonts than the old site I was using. I created the header images for this post in a matter of minutes. It was so easy, no stress or frustration. I encourage you to try it out today.

I was gifted the DesignCap Plus account to try it out all the features for this post. No other compensation has been received.


How to Become a Consultant: Work From Home Idea

This post is sponsored by Diamond Links. Any opinions expressed are my own. 

There are plenty of people out there that are knowledgeable in their field.  If you think about it, We all  have an area we’re knowledgeable in or really good at that we don’t automatically think could be turned into a career. You don’t have to take my word for it though, big companies are doing it. UPMC with their “heath care concierge” for their health plan members.  I walked into a local Rite Aid a few months ago and they had a person titled a “wellness ambassador” that helps customers locate products, provide info, help customers to speak with a pharmacist, etc.  What their really doing is helping you navigate something you might night feel completely comfortable or knowledgeable about. Being the link missing to help you to the goal.

Now imagine you’re working for a big marketing firm or a magazine helping with digital market. You’re not happy there. But those skilled could easily translate into being a consultant for those that don’t have your skills. People like me…bloggers that might need help in getting their blog out there.  Small businesses that aren’t sure which type of marketing would work best for them OR don’t know where to start with digital marketing.  You can be the person that help connect people to what they need/want.

You don’t even have to have a degree. Let’s say you’re really really good at couponing. You could be a couponing consultant. Let people know how to get started. where to find coupons, etc.  Alternatively you can be there if they have questions like “Am I able to use two coupons for this product for this sale?” or “Am I able to use coupons past their expiration date at store X?”

You could easily do consultant work from home with just about any area your good at if you can find away to apply it.  For more ideas check out: how to become a consultant to really get your gears turning to get out of that 9-5 and have the freedom to work on your time.

Wanna become a ChaCha guide?

I’ve been working as a ChaCha guide from home for about a year and a half now. I tried it out while on maternity leave from work. I thought it might be a good way to supplement my income. After my 3rd child I went from working full-time outside the home to part-time.

ChaCha is a question answering service. People text or call in questions and you help answer them. This is not a good choice for you if you are easily offended though. You’ll get everyday questions like: What’s the state capital of Minnesota, What’s 554-35 equal?, what’s the boiling point of water?. Then you get crazy questions like: How many teaspoons of sugar would it take to reach the moon? (seriously I got that question once). Then you get rather offensive or colorful questions. I won’t bother to post them here.

There are several guide positions: Transcribers that take the phone and text questions sent in and transcibe them for the next guide that would be the Expediters. I’m actually an Expediter. They have a history of answer from the same or similar question that have been answered. There are a lot of resources to help you answer questions. I try to answer with a provided answer. If it is a question that requires some research or an appropriate quick answer is not available for me I sent it off to either a Generalist or Specialist. These guys do the work of researching and sending an answer.

You can work as little or as much as you want. You can choose to get paid per question OR use a points system where you are in a pool. I can explain that more to you if you are seriously considering.

I only maybe work ChaCha about 10 hours a week. Generally after the kids go to bed or while the baby naps if I feel like it. You are not required to work daily. You make your own hours. In fact, I hadn’t done it myself for several months then got back into it.

ChaCha is having a guide referral contest this month. If you’d like to join go to:
http://becomeaguide.chacha.com please use my email as the person who referred you:

angiewith3 at live dot com   (use the @ and . when putting in referral field.  I wrote it this way here to cut down on spammers emailing me)

Not only will I get credit for referring you but you’ll be placed on my team so I can help you if you have questions or need guidance.

Also please feel free to email me if you have further questions on becoming a guide.
