Social networking platform Ello is seeking to become a hub for creative people seeking patronage

Social networking platform Ello recently introduced Hire Me and Buy buttons, two new features aimed at supporting artists and creators generate revenue for their skills.

The Hire Button allows Ello users to broadcast to visitors of their profile that they are available for work and leads to a simple contact form where someone can message them. The recipient receives the message via an Ello email. This feature is unlocked under user settings and currently only available via Web and Android, with plans to debut on iOS soon.
