Facebook is a great place to share your farm or ranch. Having a Facebook cover photo is more important than you might think. It gives visitors a glimpse into your farm/ranch. You can of course select one of your favorite photos or you can create a personalized cover photo.
There are two great options in creating custom cover photos, PicMokey.com and Canva.com. My personal favorite is Canva. So head on over to Canva for a quick walk through on how to create a custom Facebook cover for your page.
Above you find the main screen for Canva.
You can create most anything you want using Canva. So click on “Facebook Cover“.
Now you are on the main page to create a “Facebook Cover”.
The thing I love about Canva is that it shows you where your “Profile Picture” will be. This helps if you want to include words or information about your farm/ranch or blog on your cover photo. To the left you will see options to pick premade layouts, add elements (shapes, lines, etc.), add text, select a premade background or upload one of you farm photos to use as the background image.
You can select a premade layout and simply add in photos of your farm or ranch as seen below.
You can also choose to use one of your farm photos as the background.
Personalize it with words, your farm/ranch logo and/or your blog URL.
Note: To upload your farm/ranch logo just select upload. It is the same option you use to upload your photos.
Spend a little time playing around with the many features Canva has to offer to see what type of cover photo works best for you. You can switch them up with the different seasons or if something new is happening on your farm/ranch.
