You know that amazing graphic that corporate just sent out and you can’t wait to post it? Yeah, neither can every other consultant. When the same image starts popping up all over the place at the same time, Facebook will flag it as spam and you get locked up. Create your own graphics and stay on the right side of the bars.

Try using PicMonkey or Canva. These are my two favorite graphics creators!
