How Axios Built on RebelMouse

Why RebelMouse? The Best Centralized, Social CMS

RebelMouse is the best CMS for social growth, with a platform built for content creators to thrive in the age of social. See how we got here + how you can join us and start growing within days!

Chances are that the CMS you work in every day was built before social — before the idea of distributed content was even coined. Even though publishing has changed dramatically, a lot of that heavy and outdated tech still exists today.

For example, WordPress has more than 87 million sites, but each platform update still has to be pushed out individually to each and every one of those customers. By contrast, RebelMouse is a centralized CMS, meaning our updates are pushed out to all of our sites at once (and sometimes even multiple times a day). We are always updating and integrating which is why we are quickly becoming the most sought-after alternative to WordPress VIP, with a platform that features content creation tools integrated directly into social APIs.

Websites became a part of our lives long before the revelation that fans are born in the feeds. The opportunity to reach huge social audiences is now, but that doesn't mean the website is dead. Publishing has just evolved.

Meet RebelMouse's Particle Assembler and Accelerator

Revitalize Articles With an Advanced Content Lifecycle

The core unit of content on the web used to be the article. Whether you called it a post, blog, article, or column, it's always been your core content. You created it and measured its performance. It's what fueled you to go viral. But social has completely changed this paradigm.

Now the core unit is much smaller. It's a Facebook video, an Instagram post, a tweet, a YouTube video, an interactive element, or even just an image. The core unit is now a particle. A particle is — quite literally — part of an article.
