Me and my co-founder at Senja, Wilson, use BrandBird templates to produce consistent & professional images across our marketing. That alone has improved the quality of our output. BrandBird images also consistently drive more likes and comments on social platforms.
Olly Meakings is the founder of Senja.io. A beautiful, free platform that helps founders and creators collect and share video and text testimonials.
The Senja team discovered BrandBird on Twitter & they immediately trusted it for their daily graphic needs for social media & marketing assets. They used to spend far too much time generating inconsistent or overly-complex design work with tools like Figma & Canva.
The Senja team utilized BrandBird to deliver marketing assets on time and increase views and engagement on social media posts. The tool's clean and good-looking graphics were a key factor in achieving these results.
Another benefit of BrandBird was that it allowed Olly and his co-founder to create professional-looking graphics without having to hire & manage a designer.
Where did you hear about BrandBird?
I saw people sharing BrandBird images on Twitter and immediately signed up. After creating my first image I immediately upgraded. It’s like magic.
For which use cases, do you use BrandBird?
Social posts for Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, help guides, newsletters, blog posts, and for creating quick images for marketing assets like lead magnets. It covers nearly all our image creation needs and we use it almost every day.
Previously we were using a mix of Figma and Canva but spending far too much time generating inconsistent or overly-complex design work.
What specific features of BrandBird do you find most helpful in your day-to-day work?
It’s not really the features, but more the UX. It’s so intuitive. The perfect balance between functionality and ease of use. It removes a big blocker to delivering our marketing work on time.
Why did you choose BrandBird over other platforms?
Because I found it first, loved it, and haven’t left. It’s constantly improving to meet our needs, which we love.
How has BrandBird improved your workflow compared to other image editing tools you’ve used in the past?
I love the Chrome extension, especially the screengrab into editing flow - it’s made it insanely quick to quickly grab, style, and share a screenshot.
Additionally, we use the Team plan and take advantage of the shared templates feature to ensure consistent work across our team.
What’s your favorite BrandBird feature?
I love Layouts as I can quickly create ‘Before and After’ and ‘Best-Practice’ style images.
I’m also a big fan of Mockups which make me feel like a talented designer despite not having any of the skill.
What are the main benefits of clean & good-looking visuals for your business?
More views, more engagement, and more professionalism without paying or waiting on a designer. Plus who doesn’t want their images to be clean and good-looking?
Have you noticed any significant changes in the quality or effectiveness of your marketing since using BrandBird?
Me and my co-founder at Senja, Wilson, use templates so we’re producing consistent images across our marketing. That alone has improved the quality of output.
BrandBird images also consistently drive more likes and comments on social platforms.
Have you had any issues or challenges while using BrandBird, and if so, how were they resolved?
No issues but we’ve sent feature suggestions and seen them introduced fast. Thank you, we’re excited to see what’s next at Brandbird.
