For example if you log in into my web site and my Facebook page my Twitter my Instagram you're going to see that I have the same colors the same almost the same font.

So make sure that you have the budget for it. As a beginner if you are just in the beginning I don't recommend using baid ads because you know you don't know yet if it's going to work for you or not. So I really don't want you to waste his time paying any others for graphics. There are free Web sites extenso and Calver and Bech monkey. I'll leave you the links to them in the sources section. I keep forgetting that and for video editors I don't think that there are free editors but there are not too expensive ones like Finamore and easier. But if you don't have any experience in video editing I think it's going to be best for you to hire someone to it in concentrating. I just like I said before. It's better that you express yourself and write for yourself and because you're going to be in the beginning you don't. You're not going to have too many social media to take care of.
