Creating content is an awesome way to share your knowledge and grow your brand. The good news is that you can crank out a ton of content faster than you might think, using the tools you probably already know about. Yep, I'm talking about AI and Canva!

Intro

ChatGPT and Canva are making waves online, and rightfully so—they're great resources for content creators. But imagine the possibilities when you combine their strengths! In this guide, I’ll show you how it is done through content automation! Let’s start with the simple stuff, then gradually move to more sophisticated techniques, making sure you get the hang of it all.

What are we going to learn today?

Keeping up with the latest content creation techniques can streamline your process, making it faster and more efficient. This tutorial will cover three different levels: starting with the basics, then we’ll move on to advanced strategies used by the pros. But we won’t stop there—we’ll also explore the OG level—where the true content gurus play. Ready to level up your content game? Because we are here for it!

Automation: Beginner Level

Let's imagine we have a topic in mind and want to create content for our social media. Here's how Canva and AI can help us out:

  1. Open a new Canva document and select the 'Magic Write' AI feature to generate content.
  2. Then, ask Magic Write what content you want by prompting it. For example, you can input a prompt like "10 tips to live a happier life" and let Magic Write create a list that can be used for multiple social media posts.
  3. Next, organize the generated tips by copying and pasting them into a spreadsheet, such as Google Sheets.
  4. Go back to Canva and choose what type of social media content you want to create. For instance, if you're making content for Instagram, you can search for "quote Instagram" to find suitable templates. You can also select a template by using filters to narrow down your options and find the perfect design for your content.
  5. Customize the template by adding your branding like logos.

Now that we have our template set up, we can use Canva's "Bulk Create" to quickly fill out multiple templates with our tips. This tool saves time and ensures consistency across all posts. 

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Go to the left side menu and click on the "apps" tab.
  2. Choose "Bulk Create".
  3. Place your content. You can either type it manually into the text box or upload a CSV file from Google Sheets. For simplicity, we added the data manually by copy and pasting it to the table and set the name to "happiness tips".

Next, connect your data:

  1. Click on the text box where you want to display the tips, then click the three dots.
  2. Select “Connect data” and choose “happiness tips”.
  3. Adjust the text size, along with the placement to fit your design.

We made 10 quotes, so we can create 10 templates, each with one quote. Now, to populate our templates:

  1. Click “continue” to apply your data.
  2. To create multiple pages, select “generate data”. Canva will fill in the content from your list. Then, adjust the placement as needed.

When you’re up and satisfied with the content, just click “share” and then “download”. You also have the option to download selected pages or all of them.

Now that you have used Bulk Create, you can create lots of content in just minutes! Now, let’s move to the next level!

Automation: Pro Level

At the pro level, we prefer ChatGPT because it offers more detailed capabilities than Canva’s Magic Write. You'll need to get good at giving ChatGPT clear instructions. Don’t worry if you’re new to this—we’ll help you along.

Here’s how it works:

Let's start by asking ChatGPT for a list of top books by the Dalai Lama. Then, let's ask it to pull some quotes from these books, checking in to make sure it understood our requests.

Amazingly, ChatGPT organized the information into a table, simplifying the process of Canva’s Bulk Create by laying out all the essentials.

Next, let's transfer the content to the Gsheet and clear the format. Once done, we can now use it to create engaging posts in Canva.

In Canva, use specific words in the search bar to find the right template. For example, if you're looking for a template for Instagram stories related to Buddhism, try searching for "Instagram story + Buddhism".

Once you picked a template, let’s add our data:

  1. Download the data as a CSV file from Google Sheets.
  2. In Canva, click 'Upload CSV' to import the file.
  3. Connect the data to the template by clicking the three dots, selecting 'connect data', and choosing the quote.
  4. Feel free to add new text boxes as needed.

To take your content a next step further, customize the template by applying different styles and colors to match your personal or brand aesthetic. Arrange the elements and colors to make your social media posts look professional and eye-catching.

Automation: God Level

In the God level, we’ll be creating a series of posts that can be published in different social media platforms. Whether you’re making content for YouTube, LinkedIn or Facebook, using Canva with ChatGPT will make everything easier. ChatGPT can handle complex summarization tasks, like condensing video descriptions for multiple platforms.

In this instance, we want to promote our content with the help of ChatGPT, so we made it summarize on a table 5 of our YouTube videos with the titles, links and a short description under 140 characters.

After feeding ChatGPT some information, it responded with a table.

Now that we have our table, let’s save it on a spreadsheet.

Going back to Canva, we will now be introducing our own brand templates, filled with animated designs and effects.

If you don’t have a brand template, you can create your own and save the design as a ‘Brand Template’ on the ‘Share’ option.

To find your branded templates, just go to the menu and click "brand." You'll see your brand kit, templates, and controls there.

In our template, we will do the same thing as we did in the previous level, adding the title and description in the bulk create. Additionally, we have a blank canvas where we will put our YouTube thumbnail.

The good thing about bulk creation in Canva is that it also supports adding images. However, you cannot directly upload an image from your computer to the bulk creation tab.

In order to add images to the bulk creation tab, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Go to homepage
  2. Click “projects
  3. Add a new folder

Here, we already created a folder called “assets,” and inside of it is the “YT Thumbnails” folder so we will just click “upload”.

Now that we have our thumbnails on our Assets Folder, we can now add the images on our bulk create data.

We just have to make sure that we are adding the correct thumbnail that corresponds to the title of our YouTube video. Once all the data is added, we can connect it with the elements.

Next is click “continue” and to generate the five different pages. Play a little bit with the elements to make more appealing.

Diversify your posts by using the "Styles" feature and select the color combo that complements them the most.

Extra Features in Canva for Automation

When it comes to resizing posts for different social media platforms, Canva Pro users have the perk of easily resizing designs for different formats, whether it's for LinkedIn, Facebook, or any other platform.

With this cool feature, you can easily tailor your creations to suit different needs. And Viola! We now have multiple posts ready to be published on our different social media platforms.

 

Now that we have our posts ready, it's time for Canva to do one last thing, and it is posting our pubmats using the Canva Post Schedule. As another great feature available for Canva Pro users, this makes your content management process quicker compared to downloading and reuploading your posts.

Here's how to do it:

  1. Organize your posts by renaming each post based on the platform you're targeting.
  2. Click "Share" and select "Schedule" in Canva.
  3. Pick the social media platform where you want to schedule your post.
  4. Select when you want your post to go live.
  5. Choose the post format that fits your platform.
  6. Pick the specific post you want to upload.
  7. Write an engaging caption to go with your post.
  8. Once you’re ready, hit "Schedule" and in a couple of minutes, you can effortlessly schedule posts for different platforms without leaving Canva. Automation at its finest!

Conclusion

Congratulations on mastering the art of content creation with Canva and ChatGPT! Now that you have learned through this in-depth guide, you're not just saving time but also elevating the quality of your content and connecting with your audience in meaningful ways.

Whether you're a business owner, a blogger, or a just a tech-savvy content creator, these tools provide endless opportunities to spark your creativity and captivate your audience like a pro! Embrace the power of AI and design automation to create content in a breeze!
