We heard you loud and clear: MORE simple tips that help you look or work a little sexier online… to prove we can take a hint:
01. Remove Backgrounds from any Image in One-Click
TONIC designer + SEO expert Ryan showed us an amazing free online app this week and blew our MINDS. No more spending hours photoshopping backgrounds out of images or products. Just upload here and do it in ONE CLICK (example above: me and one of my cute babies and a super complex background… like, they caught my hair fuzz?!)
02. Make Gorgeous, Professional Mock-Ups
Have a course, product, or just want to make your Instagram feed look super pretty on your website? Wondering how everyone else is making all those gorgeous and clean graphics with devices when it’s REALLY hard to photograph a laptop? (It’s so hard.)
Use these AMAZING scene creators from Moyo Studio! They are easily the best we’ve found (we’ve tried them all) and instantly add depth to any course, sales page, or SEXY NEW TONIC website launch graphic.
03. (Way) Better Images for Your Brand
If you’re not a photographer — and even if you are — it can be a STRUGGLE to find the right images for your brand… and sometimes it feels like everyone is using the same ones. Jen did the logo for our friend Shay’s stock photography + marketing company Social Squares (often seen on our client Jenna Kutcher’s Goal Digger Podcast Instagram!) and we LOVE their work, especially because they’re constantly releasing new images and expanding their catalog to fit your needs. Highly, highly recommend.
O4. The Pretty Filter, But for Zoom?
We all basically live on Zoom now, right? It seems like technology from 1995 to us, but hey. If you’re constantly in meetings and missing the Instagram filters that make our newly grown-out brows (#quarantinelife) just a little bit… prettier, you can “touch up your appearance” with this hidden setting we just discovered in Zoom! Just go to the little arrow by “Start Video” > Video Settings > Toggle on the “Touch up” button.
Boom, bam, baby. Looking like a Glossier ad over there.
05. Speed Up Your Website
|Site loading a little slow? Especially on those gallery pages? Our website platform, SHOWIT, automatically downsizes images, but if you want your site to REALLY fly, you can use this free service called TINYJPG to compress your images and graphics without sacrificing any image quality. It makes a HUGE difference.|
|In closing, we’re THRILLED to see your new TONIC websites launching LEFT AND RIGHT this week. So many of you are getting your new sites, dreams, and ideas off the ground.|
That, frankly, is even sexier to us than Stanley Tucci in a black polo making a classic cocktail. So, if you need help picking a site, want to celebrate your TONIC launch with us, or just feel compelled to send some “This was the most helpful blog post!” love, just know we’re always just an email away!
