Create your first mock-up (and be thrilled!)
Mockfire’s mockup editor tool is dummy-proof making it easy for even a 7-year-old kid to use it. You can start by selecting the social channel you want to create a mockup for. Choices include Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest and even Google Ad Banners.
Once you’ve selected the social channel, use the left navigation to pick the type of mockup you want to create. If you’ve chosen Facebook, you can create mockups for posts, image/video ad, carousel ad, album and stories. Similarly every social channel has integrations for a wide range of posts, stories and ads that it supports.
After selecting the mockup type, begin customizing the mockup by uploading the brand logo and graphics. Add a compelling caption and your mockup should be ready to download.
For carousel ads and image/video ads with a call to action, you can go one step further and select the call to action along with the colors it should be presented in. This helps you create a mockup that is identical to what the post or ad would look like when it’s published.
Preview your mockup to check if all the information is filled out and then proceed to the next step.
Download and share your mockups (and get feedback)
The next step is to download your social media mockup and share it with your clients, colleagues and friends. Choose whether you want the final rendering to be in JPG or PNG and smash that download button. All mockups are automatically saved in the brand name you entered to make it easy to identify them.
Once you have downloaded your mockup, you can now share it with your clients for quick approvals or with your team to see if there are any final edits required. Try downloading different variations of your mockups with multiple captions and call to actions so you can A/B test which one is better.
