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 Even though publishing has changed dramatically, a lot of that heavy and outdated tech still exists today.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 the RebelMouse Particle Accelerator

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.

Social has completely changed that 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.

How We Do Website Redesigns

Did you know that we offer website redesign services that don't require you to re-platform to RebelMouse? We understand the word "redesign" can seem a bit daunting, but a high-quality, well-functioning site is of paramount importance to your social traffic and success.

Building the Biggest New Media Properties of Our Times

RebelMouse has a unique and ever-growing advantage through the mix of technology we've built, the amount of sites we power, and the relationships we have with our clients. We built off the founding team's knowledge — from their experience of building HuffPost — to create something truly exciting. Two of the most exciting new media breakout hits — The Dodo and Axios — were built by RebelMouse when they were just ideas. The Dodo now has their claim to fame with one of the most popular videos on Facebook ever, and every month brings in billions of Facebook views. Axios, launched only in January of this year, has become a traffic monster — racking up 80M+ page views a month. Now we've taken on Odyssey Online, and have grown it by 4M new users in the first 45 days alone.

We're not just a technology company, and we're not just a design agency either. We don't only do strategy work by offering advice. We build alongside you — the concepts, ideas, and cultures that can break out to be huge media hits.

Important: Mandatory Facebook Upgrade Arrives in 2018

The media world is ever-evolving, but one thing is abundantly clear: Facebook and Google, the almighty duopoly, have a firm grip on digital ad revenue. While successful media companies and brands struggle to meet revenue goals, the platforms are reaching new heights. As the state of digital media continues to puzzle publishers in 2017, it can be hard to strategize with all the changes and updates these mega platforms throw our way.

We often see media companies frantically trying to adopt a new strategy to monetize without knowing how to successfully execute. Case in point: The pivot-to-video trend, which has really been more like a pivot to ad-backed digital media, is causing editorial teams to take drastic measures prematurely.

RebelMouse is here to make life easier, and help you with your strategy along the way. Our team of experts live and breathe digital content. We stay ahead of all the algorithm updates, the platform changes, etc., so you can focus on producing great content. We help you take back control of your content and stay abreast of the best monetization strategies so you can bring in real revenue.

One of Facebook's recent updates makes it mandatory to switch to their Monetization Manager by February 2018. We'll walk you through this process so this change doesn't affect your monetization strategy.
