Did I Forget to tell You Something Important?

How do I make a Meme?

So Yesterday I said you should be using Memes as part of your marketing arsenal, but I failed to tell you how, or rather point you to a program you can use to make one.

For the budget friendly option, I would suggest using a program called GIMP.

This free photo manipulation software is comparable to photoshop but won’t break the bank. It will take a bit of playing around to get used to it, but once you do, you’ll easily be able to create all the memes you need for use with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc…

A quick search on YouTube will give you plenty of tutorials on the use of GIMP. Honestly. It takes minutes to make them once you get the hang of it. You'll be making so many memes people will be sick of you. Wait.. strike that. You don't want people sick of you, so choose wisely which ones to post. But, have fun!

Another budget friendly one to try is Googles Pixlr Editor. http://apps.pixlr.com/editor/ I have no experience with this one, but I have heard for simple things like memes it will do the trick and won't cost you a penny. Worth checking out. 


For those who want a little more oomph, you can always purchase a monthly subscription to Adobe Photoshop. Plans starting as low as $19 a month might be in your budget, especially for those who are planning to do more than just make memes. Photoshop is the heavy hitter and does so much for photo manipulation.
