Are Tonic Social Media Templates Worth the Money?

If you’re putting off posting on social media because you’re just not in love with your graphics…keep reading.

It’s true – we all spend SO much time on social media these days. Whether it’s scrolling for work, for inspiration or what I lovingly like to call a “doom-scroll”, on average, we’re spending 141 minutes PER day on our favorite apps. That’s over 2 hours per day!

And let’s face it – when we find a new profile from a reel or a super cool photo on the discover page, we’ll scroll through the profile to see if we love it as much as we thought we did. In fact 85% of folks every single day scroll first and follow through later.

Now, if scrolling has the ability to determine whether or not someone continues to follow your work – wouldn’t you want to put your *best* digital foot forward?

When I first started my business – I didn’t have the budget to contract a designer.

BUT I KNEW the impact that impeccable design could have. Knowing what I liked seeing but not always being able to execute it was becoming increasingly frustrating…but then I discovered Tonic Site Shop. The folks behind Tonic, Jeff & Jen, are the masterminds behind my social media and email graphics. And the best part is – they’re all templates! Most people know Tonic for their ICONIC website templates, but what you might not know is that they’ve created templates for every other digital aspect of your business too.

Now, I’ll admit – the prices that you see might seem a little high. Especially if you’re just starting out or have never had individualized quotes back from a designer or agency before. It took me about a year of side-hustling before I jumped into my business full-time, and for that full year – I was deciding whether or not to make the splurge.

Because of how much back and forthing I did – I compiled all of your questions into one spot so that you could know once and for all if the Tonic social media templates are worth the money.

I’ll give you a little hint: um, duh. Yes. They’re worth more than their weight in gold.

 


 

 

Here’s the answers to your most asked TONIC questions:

 

1. HOW DO I USE TONIC SOCIAL MEDIA TEMPLATES?

The Tonic Site Shop social media templates are super easy to use. They’re designed for Canva – which is basically one of the easiest to use “drag and drop” editors for graphics out there. Dreamboat combo, just saying.

 

2. Are tonic templates easy to edit?

You bet they are! The Canva interface is all drag+drop and Tonic templates take care of all of the little design details that you didn’t even know you were missing, but make a world of difference. If it were me, I’d save the templates as their own “project” within the canva app, and then duplicate them as needed.

 

3. WILL THE TEMPLATES STILL FEEL LIKE “ME”?

I know how frustrating it is to buy templates because they look beautiful, but then you just can’t seem to make them work with your brand. It almost feels like you’re throwing your cash straight into the toilet. But with the amount of customizations you can make (read: EVERYTHING), you’ll have iconic, beautiful graphics that turn heads with every single scroll.

 

4. i’m not a designer – can i still use tonic templates?

Absolutely you can! Every single thing inside of the Tonic social media templates is customizable, AND it’s easy to do it. Like, you could do it with a glass of wine in your hand before happy hour easy. Or whip something up in the back of an Uber on your way home easy. No need to wait days or weeks for a turnaround, you can do it all from your phone if you really want to.

 

5. can i change the fonts and colors on my templates?

Heck yeah! Swap out the pre-loaded fonts for the ones you’re already using, and same goes for colors. You might need to make a few tweaks here and there to keep the layout the same – but that’s how you let your personality shine through the templates!

 

6. Do i need a canva pro account to use tonic templates?

You do not need a Canva pro account to access your Tonic templates. Each one was created so that you can use it with the FREE version of the app! Score!

 

7. Is there more than one template pack to choose from?

Yes, yes, yes & yes! Your brand is super personal – and the Tonic team knows that design is NOT a one-size-fits-all approach. They’ve got TONS of incredible options to choose from, or if you don’t quite know which to pick, you can take a quiz to see which one aligns with your personality best.

I love a bit of elegance with an edge, and my classic drink is Charles Heidsieck champagne or E.H. Taylor Bourbon, so they paired me up with Manhattan and Lillet Blanc – and let me tell you, they got it right on the nose.

 

8. Do you have a discount code that can help me save some money?

I’m glad you asked! If you’re holding your content back because of the way it looks – my advice is to check out Tonic, and buy a template pack to get you started! Creating beautiful content doesn’t have to be hard – turns out, we can have our cake and eat it too. If you’re ready to give them a try, you can save 15% off of the entire Tonic template collection when you use my code GRETCHENREESE at checkout.

Even if you’re a little worried about the price tag (I’ve been there too!), let me just tell you – they don’t just deliver in terms of ROI. Yes, they create templates that are built to convert. Yes, the template collections are beautiful. Yes, they are easy to use. But let me tell you, the PEACE of mind I’ve felt since integrating these templates into my design flow is next level good. I don’t even need to think about how I’m going to showcase an idea or a concept anymore. It’s just time for plug and play.

Snag a template pack for yourself (and make sure you use my code GRETCHENREESE for 15% off) – because it’s time for you to have the scroll-stopping graphics that you’ve always wanted.

 

If you want to up your social media game but don’t know how…try a Tonic Site Shop template!
