BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The new Ello Hire Me and Buy Buttons add functionality that enhance the inherent value in Ello's organic reach. The new functionality is part of an intentional product roadmap designed to build a sustainable business model that puts first dollars in creators pockets and helps them:
- Build an audience and grow their reputation
- Sell their work and ideas
- Get hired to do meaningful work
- Find the right professional development.
Unlike on mainstream advertising platforms, creators that work hard to build their social reach and audience maintain that reach and can connect directly with their audience without being nickel and dimed. As world renowned artist James Jean points out in a recent Ello post about the Buy Button: "What's been denied creators by the other social networks is finally available here."
Instead, Ello sees the real value in helping creators build and connect with their audience. This becomes the first step in a pathway to living through one's creative work.
"Ello is solidifying its place as the virtual social platform for creators, a well developed ecosystem for the people interested in living a great life through their creative work and ideas. This includes people who appreciate craftsmanship, the arts, design, etc. and want to slow down and enjoy and support creativity, and for values aligned publications and brands that want to more genuinely connect with and support creators," notes Ello CMO Mark Gelband
"So much has been written and said about the value of the creative class and the ever-emerging creative economy. We built Ello specifically to serve these creatives. At Ello we're making design and product decisions to empower creators to live through their work and ideas."
