  • No requirements



Use a free and extremely simple design tool called Canva to create branded and beautiful YouTube thumbnail images within minutes.

Canva works with any computer – there is no download required.

This course is a complete walkthrough. I’ll show you step by step how I design my YouTube thumbnail images. You can replicate exactly what I do and never have to hire a freelancer again.


The thumbnail image is often the first thing people see when they choose a video to watch. If your YouTube thumbnail image pops out more than the images of other videos, your videos will immediately get more views and with more views, you will grow on YouTube because YouTube will begin favoring your video in YouTube SEO and the YouTube recommendation algorithm.


Anyone can use Canva on any computer. It is free and it is great for non-designers. You don’t want to learn a whole new software program to edit images. Learning a program like Photoshop is boring, too time-consuming, and unnecessary or distracting for YouTubers because your aim isn’t to become a Photoshop designer. With Canva, you can do almost all necessary image editing in minutes and by yourself.


Watch how I design my images and get an inside view for how I think about the designs and how I think about grabbing attention of the potential viewers. Follow exactly what I do and get great YouTube thumbnails quickly.


If you have questions, know that I am here to help! I answer 99% of student questions within 24 hours. Many students tell me that other instructors don’t respond. Well, I do because

1) I care about my students.

2) I feel a responsibility to make sure that students get their money’s worth from the course.
