A term called banner blindness has resulted from people being inundated with ads trying to sell everything from weight loss products to automobiles. As a result of all these ads, society has learned to tune them out.
Memes, however, are to the marketing industry what the Trojan horse was in the fall of Troy. Memes can be entertaining, educational and socially meaningful. If the message can connect effectively with its intended audience, it can go viral.

You can easily find millions of quotes by simply logging onto Google and typing the subject you want to get a quote on followed by “quotes”. You will then be presented with pages of quotes that you can use in creating your memes.
My Journey in Creating Memes
I thought the creating memes would be fun and over the last year, I bought several different software programs that offer the ability to create memes. While some of them had features that made the task easier, I found myself going back to using Microsoft PowerPoint.
I found most of the software programs to be rather “clunky” and in some cases very time consuming and often poor customer support which was the very things that I wanted to avoid.
The software programs I had did offer the advantage of getting access to Free Images to use for commercial use without having to pay for each image. So what I did was type in a term and see what images would come up and then pick the ones I liked and then downloaded.
I created a menu of terms and then link them to websites that had related quotes. So, once I had my image my next step was to find a quote that connected to it in a meaningful way.
My Big Discovery that Everything Changed
I recently came across a piece of software that totally changed how I create memes. What took me 3 to 5 minutes to do in creating a meme, now takes me less than one minute.
Rather than typing it all out in this blog, watch the video below as I give you a walk-through.
