APITemplate centers its efforts around images and PDFs, making it a direct competitor with Switchboard Canvas. For PDF creation with APITemplate, users will need to know HTML or Markdown programming languages to be successful, but with image generation, drag and drop editing is supported on the platform.
Creating social media posts, email marketing graphics, and advertising banners can all be done simultaneously on APITemplate. This no-frills platform helps you get the job done by generating multiple images at once, saving your images to be repurposed later on, and integrating with a multitude of other tools for automated posting and distribution capabilities.
Users report that Jacky, the founder of APITemplate is very easy to connect with and get support from; for company leadership to break down the barriers between themselves and customers, it showcases how dedicated the organization is to understanding user needs and catering to its audience as the platform grows.
APITemplate is extra accessible for two reasons: price and no-code features. There is a monthly plan that costs $0 and allows for the creation of up to 50 images, which keeps barriers to entry low and helps cultivate an inclusive platform by giving a voice to paid and nonpaid accounts alike. Because the image generator doesn’t require any programming knowledge, a small business’s marketing expert could pick up this tool tomorrow and figure out how to add value to the organization within minutes.
It has been noted that the editing features including fonts, colors, and stock photos are more limited than customers expect, making it difficult to create a variety of images over time. As these products gain wider user bases, it’s important to offer more customizable widgets so that no two customers end up with images that look the same.
For the PDF editor to be unusable without basic programming knowledge is a bit of a miss on APITemplate’s part. This essentially means that most of its users can only utilize half the tool, and to get full access to its capabilities, a technical resource is needed.
APITemplate itself can’t do much. Its studio generates images, yes, but not at the rate or level of individuality that any of its competitors offer. Then, once the image is generated, the platform relies on integrations with other tools to automate posting or push the image into any usable marketing effort.
