As one of the newest social networks to see a boom in subscribers, Ello is definitely a platform that your brand should pay attention to.

The site's policy claims to never support advertising - yet they aren’t going to stop you from creating a brand page.

The founder, Paul Budnitz, has a page for his bicycle company.

But, he is not posting content like photos in a sales-y manner. Instead, he is posting beautiful, eye-catching images that any artsy photographer or bicycle shopper would love to view.

He is leveraging Ello for his business without cluttering anyone’s feed of advertisements or promotional marketing content.

Ello's design is simple and includes tons of white space. Overall, it's down-to-earth site with authentic content.
