Now, your template will open up in the Canva editor so you can start customizing it with your own brand colors, images, and elements until you’re happy with it.

The left sidebar of the Canva editor provides you with all the resources for your website creation and the top bar allows you to edit your elements one by one.

With the help of the bottom bar, you can add new pages, and it lets you switch between each page to customize them as you want.

After you’ve done all the customizations, you can add some external links to your website.


In this example, I’ve placed a “Contact Me” button so I need to provide an external link to the contact form or something else.

If you’re looking for a way to connect with your website users, you can use free form builders like to create forms to take product orders, bookings, registrations, etc.

Once you’ve created a form with Jotform, you can simply add that form link to your Canva website.

To create a link, select any element or text and click the “link icon” at the top toolbar, and put your external link there.

Now it’s time to get a domain name for your website. Click the “Publish as Website” button at the upper right corner of the Canva editor and it will prompt a small popup with two options.
