Social media may have begun as a way to connect friends and family, but over time it has evolved into so much more. Today, social media networks represent a way for brands to connect and engage with their followers. And, whether that brand be a well-established company or a blossoming blogger, there is no denying the very important role that social media will play in their longevity. However, as social media sites have risen in prevalence and popularity, it can be hard to distinguish yourself from other people or companies.
As a blogger, it can be especially difficult to get noticed. After all, you’re competing with businesses that have a monthly ad budget that may very well be more than you expect to earn the entire year. So, how do you overcome such a giant obstacle? With professional, personalized social media posts that help build your brand and solidify you as an experienced pro. Creating a professional-looking social media post is no walk in the park. Even if you are using static content, you’ll still need to have some design ability and some sort of photo editing software, the majority of which are not exactly beginner-friendly. And, even more expertise and time will be required if you plan on using more dynamic content, like video. That’s where social media templates really come in handy.
Represent your brand the way you want to, with a distinct professional edge using these 20 unique social media templates.
What’s the best way to stand out on a feed where essentially every image is the same size and shape? Make your Instagram a unique shape. This collection of Instagram masks is full of familiar silhouettes, like feathered hearts and stars, and more abstract shapes. With 52 different creative templates, you’ll be able to transform even your most mundane photo into an engaging post that represents you and your brand. The best part is just how easy it is to do. All you need to do is to place your image on a smart object and decide which mask fits better by turning on and off folders in the document. Quick & easy customization right at your fingertips.
Though these are not a social media post in and of themselves, text effects are one of the best ways to elevate your social content. These text effects boast a cool, edgy vibe that feels fresh and new. Inspired by techno music and digital art, they’ll ensure that nothing else on your feed looks like your brand. This distorted effect can be difficult to achieve, even for a pro. However, with these 24 shape mesh templates for Adobe Illustrator, you can add all the unexpected twists and turns you want with ease.
These Instagram templates work especially well with cool headers and infographics but layer them over a textured background or a moody image, and you’ll find that they look surprisingly professional.
Like we said, standing out on Instagram can be difficult because all the content is regulated to the same size and shape. Product shots and everyday photos often get lost in the abyss that is an Instagram feed. If altering your photos with masks to give them unique shapes didn’t tickle your fancy, these templates are a wonderful alternative. Essential and sophisticated at the same time, these 20 masks are hand-drawn and give your photos a desirable, feathered edge that almost breathes an air of antiquity to your feed. And, all it takes to apply these are a few clicks. Simply download the masks, and get to work. Your followers are waiting.
These social media templates leave nothing to chance. With professionally designed, elegant layouts and crisp graphics, they ensure that anything and everything you post shows you at your absolute best. Use fun and whimsical templates or go for something strikingly beautiful.
Set the Scene
One of the most valuable things bloggers do is to provide unbiased product reviews to the general public. So chances are… when you do a review more people than just those that already know you will read it. In this case, it’s especially important to make sure that your brand comes across professionally, as an authority. With these Mockup Scene creators, everything you need to display products in a beautiful manner is ready with just a click of a mouse.
With the lovely natural tones in this pack, interior design bloggers will be right at home.

“Designed by creators, for creators.” And it shows… This pack is perfect for adding gilded accents to any of your photos. Adding additional elements ensures that your layout flows well and that the subject of the image doesn’t appear lonely or out of place.
Although this mockup scene creator is Fourth of July themed, many, many of these elements are useful year-round. A lifestyle blogger can “cheers” their followers with a glass of wine while a bullet journal blogger can add a cup of coffee and some headphones to their monthly layout post.
Feel the Mood
Calling all fashion and design bloggers! These social media templates are here to make your life a thousand times easier.
