On average, people spend at least 3 hours and 15 minutes every day on their smartphones. That’s three hours of using an electronic device for communication, entertainment, and other purposes.
When you hear the word, “vision board,” what automatically comes to mind? A collage? A poster board? Well, with 85% of the world’s population owning a smartphone, vision boards are also now being made online.
If you’ve never made a digital dream board before or you’ve already made one but you’re unsure if they’re as effective as physical vision boards, then this is for you.
In this article, we’ll dissect the pros and cons of learning how to create a digital vision board, and whether or not it works to help you make your dream come true.
What are Digital Vision Boards?
Digital vision boards are dream boards made on an electronic device. You can use a smartphone, a tablet, a laptop, or a personal computer to make these boards.
You can use apps like Visuapp, Mini Movies, or Vision Board Maker to make these boards, or you can use any regular photo editing tool to make one. The most popular social media vision board-maker is Pinterest, which gives you access to billions of images at your disposal.
We’ve written two great articles about making Pinterest vision boards, and you can find one here.
Any vision board you make on an electronic device is called a digital or virtual vision board. We’ve also made a great article on what is a virtual vision board, which you can find here.
What are the Pros and Cons of Digital Dream Boards?
The standard way to make vision boards is to make a physical one, but digital boards are still considered to be as good. But are they? Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of making an electronic dream board:
- Access to Billions of Images
- Can Make One Anytime
- Can Make As Many as You Want
- Easy to Edit
- Can be Shared
A digital vision board is great for accessibility and convenience. You can access your board even if you’re traveling, even when you’re at work, or when you’re commuting. Because you can save a copy on your phone, you can see it anytime and anywhere you may be.
You also have access to billions of images, so you won’t have to worry about finding the perfect picture. You can also make as many as you want, make edits as much as you want, and you can even share it on social media, or with family and friends.
- Less Immersive
- Out of Sight
- Too Many Images Can be Overwhelming
- Some Apps Can Be Confusing
- Possibility of Losing It
Because you can make a digital board in minutes, it can be less immersive, and therefore, less engaging. When making a collage of your goals and dreams, you need to take the time to plan your board, since you’ll be using it to visualize your dream life.
The ability to make a dream board in minutes and having access to billions of images you don’t have to make an effort to find can be less engaging.
When manifesting your dreams, you need to invest time and effort to make it happen and a digital board can sometimes lack the connection needed to make your dream board work.
We’ve also written a great article on reasons why a physical vision board is so much better than digital vision boards, which you can find here.
You can also make use of vision board magazines and vision board templates to help you create a physical vision board that comes with everything you need to make one. Some people veer away from making a physical vision board because it’s tasking and takes time to get started.

How to Create a Digital Vision Board That Works
Just because the essence of making a physical vision board is proven to be more effective than digital vision boards, doesn’t mean you can’t do anything to improve it.
Here are ways you can create a digital vision board that works to manifest your dreams:
Create a Self-Care Computer Vision Board
Self-care is one of the keys to positivity. If you want to make a digital board to help you achieve a positive mindset, create a self-care computer vision board.
Taking care of your physical and mental health are ways you can boost positive thoughts and feelings, which can help you align with the positive things you want to attract.
Honoring yourself helps you achieve positive emotions, such as joy, calm, happiness, and satisfaction. When you practice positive emotions on a regular basis, you put yourself in a higher vibrational frequency.
Success, happiness, and love operate on a high vibrational frequency, and self-care can help you match this energy, helping you achieve these life goals.
We’ve written a great article on making a self-care computer vision board, and you can find it here.
Make a Vision Board Reflecting the Teachings of Top Law of Attraction Advocates
Neville Goddard, Joseph Murphy, Wallas Deloise, and a few others are some of the most well-known names in New Age Thought and the Law of Attraction.
Learning about these proponents can help you understand manifestation better, and how you can use their teachings to help you become better at attracting your goals.
The more you know about manifestation, the more equipped you are to practice it to its full extent. One way you can teach yourself about different ideas of the Law is by making digital vision boards or journals about these advocates.
Use Vision Board Making Apps as a Supplement to Your Physical Board
Apps are convenient. You download them and you use them for a variety of different purposes. They are designed to make things easier for you, which includes making vision boards.
From Canva to PicMonkey, Visuapp, to Why Vision Board, to CapCut, these editing tools and vision board-making apps allow you to create dream boards in just minutes.
No longer will you have to collect magazines, buy art supplies, and take the time to sit down and make a physical board, as you can make one in minutes.
But sometimes, when things are too easy to do, they sometimes lose the very essence and meaning of why you’re making them in the first place.
To make your board effective, create a physical one first, and supplement it by making a copy using any of these vision board-making apps.
We’ve also written a great vision board-maker apps list, as well as a list of photo editing tools that are perfect for making boards. You can find the article for apps here, and here for using photo editors to make your vision boards.
Create an Action Board with Your Virtual Vision Board
Studies show that action boards are effective at helping you achieve your goals. Creating an action board that details the processes or steps you need to take to achieve success is said to have positive results when it comes to goal-setting.
Make your digital boards more effective by including an action plan about how you’re going to attract what you want.
For example, aside from having an image of yourself working at your dream job, include images and words about acing your first interview, wearing a good suit to that interview, preparing to meet the employer, learning about the company, and so on.

Physical vision boards have always been the standard as a manifestation method but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be making digital boards. On the contrary, you should, because they have a lot of benefits and upsides, such as accessibility, portability, and convenience.
However, it’s the things you don’t do when making a virtual vision board that is keeping you from manifesting your dreams when making one.
When creating an electronic dream board, always remember to practice visualization, set aside time to look at it and meditate, and practice other manifestation techniques that can boost its effectiveness at helping you attract your dream life.
Learning how to create a digital vision board is great and we hope our tips can help you use these virtual platforms to boost your ability to manifest your goals.
