Announcement: Big Changes Made to RebelMouse’s Creative Agency Team

On this gorgeous spring day in April 2019, I am very proud to announce the promotion of several key members on RebelMouse's team. They are all brilliant people who work closely with our most important clients, as well as our engineering, product, and design teams, to deliver the best sites on the internet. Please join me in congratulating them!


Sandra Orlic — Chief Creative Officer

I have never in my career met someone with the intellectual and creative capacity of Sandra. Since she began two years ago as an account manager at RebelMouse, literally every client she has worked with has sent me a personal love note about her help and involvement in bringing everything in a project together.

At RebelMouse, creativity is not just something we bring to the table as a service — we enable creativity in your own teams as well. Sandra has proven time and time again to have an inherent talent for bringing out the creative ideas in our clients and our own internal teams. Perhaps more importantly, she is incredibly talented at turning creative ideas into plans that get executed on time.

We believe deeply in continuously iterating based on data, new ideas, and opportunities. Sandra's personal passion and connection with the growth of our clients and our platform has brought happiness to them, to our team, and to me personally. Laughter comes quickly to Sandra and makes what we do fun. When Sandra is in a meeting, I will often hear a lot of giggling from her and others on the call. Nothing is a more wonderful North Star for creativity than happiness and laughter. These are only possible when everyone feels safe, comfortable, oriented, and enabled.

Soo Youn Lee — Director of Enterprise

Soo has been with RebelMouse for four years, and during her time she has focused most of her work on United Airlines, a flagship client of our company. Soo has a deep understanding of not just our platform, but also how to coordinate large-scale custom developments for the Fortune 500.

She is a strong communicator with exceptional organizational skills, which results in all of her projects being delivered on time. With a keen eye for design, she works closely with our clients and design team on translating ideas and visions into wonderful designs.

RebelMouse helps brands become new media companies, and there is nobody in the world better than Soo at getting on the ground to make it all come together to move the needle.

Amanda Alves — Director of Technical Account Management

Amanda joined RebelMouse one year ago. From the very first week on the job, we could tell Amanda was special. Not only was she taking projects live that very same week, but her passion for teaching and building community was clearly exceptional.

Amanda truly understands our platform and how it can be customized, and she understands the code and approaches it takes to get it done in a way that results in exceptional page speed scores and high-quality code.

She is a gifted and talented teacher, and under her leadership the technical account management team finds support and enablement, as well as a leader who can roll up her sleeves and help everyone meet deadlines. She won both my and all of her clients' respect immediately, and the whole team at RebelMouse thinks the world of her.

Adam Taylor — Director of Rebel Support

Adam has been an account manager at RebelMouse for two years. During his time here, he has worked with a wide variety of clients, ranging from the Fortune 1000 to large-scale media companies to non-profits making the world a better place.

He has a deep understanding of how our platform can be used strategically to accomplish goals, and how it can be customized to match the exact requirements of our clients.

RebelMouse as a platform has grown substantially since its nascent days. We now reach over 50 million people a month and have one of the largest site networks in the world. Having Adam lead the team that directly helps support our clients through their many years on our platform is a very exciting step for us as a company.

Thank You for Your Support!

To all of our many clients: Thank you for believing in us. Thank you for believing in a company run by a trans founder and CEO, for believing that women belong in tech and strategy, and for allowing us to help your business thrive. Thank you for believing in a company which proudly has no office and is enabling brilliant people across the globe to help you grow your business.

The world's largest companies trust us to power their global, multiplatform content experience. As a platform, we're now one of the largest in the world, reaching 50+ million people every month.

How to Add an Authors Element to Search

If you have a community of creators contributing to your site, it can be helpful for users to search for articles by a particular author. By default, if a user searches for the name "Rachel Williams," the results will pull up stories about Rachel Williams instead of the author profile of Rachel Williams. There's an easy way to change this behavior in our Layout & Design tool. Here's how.

New: Seamless Site Design With Global Styles

Keep your site's aesthetic consistent with one-click Global Styles

Site design should be seamless, which is why we obsess over creating a CMS experience that's intuitive and user-friendly. At RebelMouse, we believe that a site's look and feel should be part of the everyday workflow, and it should never distract developers or site contributors from their daily tasks.

This is why we've recently rolled out Global Styles in our Layout & Design tool. Users now have the ability to override styles by creating their own preferences in Global Settings that can then be applied to other pages en masse.

Users can create custom styles for any element, and then use those styles in other layouts by selecting them from a drop-down menu in one streamlined motion:

Update: “Show Less” Function Removed From Layout & Design Tool

This new change helps improve the infinite scroll experience

As a RebelMouse client, you're likely familiar with our Social UX for Media layout, which includes an infinite scroll design that allows users to expand and collapse articles as they consume content.

To improve this experience, we've removed the "Show Less" function, which previously collapsed lead media, post, and/or post content elements in our Layout & Design tool. Now, if you uncheck Show Full Post Body, the "Show More" function will be enabled and the "Show Less" function will no longer be available.

RebelMouse CEO: Reimagining Diversity “Starts in the Office”

Why women, minorities, and the LGBTQ+ community will restructure workplace norms

Entering a new decade means a new opportunity to change how we approach diversity. In a joint interview alongside Leanne Pittsford of Lesbians Who Tech, RebelMouse founder and CEO Andrea Breanna said that the only way to fight patriarchal dominance is to encourage and nurture more women, minorities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace, particularly in tech.

Over half of RebelMouse's employees are women or identify as LGBTQ. Read our full diversity and inclusion report here.

Mailchimp Free Users: You May Need to Upgrade Under New Pricing Plan

Features previously available in Mailchimp's Free plan have changed

Mailchimp has recently updated their pricing structure, and template customization features that were originally supported in the Free plan have been moved to the Standard plan.

The change means that any Free users will need to upgrade to the Standard plan that currently costs $14.99 per month. Beyond template customization, the following RebelMouse features will also no longer be available if you're using their Free plan:

  • Sending emails using Discovery
  • The ability to send daily and weekly newsletters
  • Turning a post into a newsletter using Entry Editor

While it may be an inconvenience to upgrade your Mailchimp account to a paid plan, consider this a small investment in a strategy with winning potential. Think of a newsletter as an extension of your site's content that puts the experience back in the hands of your readers. After all, users prefer to read and consume content on their own time in familiar interfaces, like Gmail. Click here to learn more about crafting an effective email strategy.

If you have any questions about Mailchimp's new changes and how they will work with RebelMouse's integration, email support@rebelmouse.com or contact your account manager today.

Boost Your Performance With RebelMouse’s New AMP-Rendering Engine

Using React + Node, AMP-powered sites provide a next-level user experience

RebelMouse is proud to announce a new rendering engine driven by Google's lightning-fast AMP format. In our relentless pursuit of world-class site performance, our team of developers put together a faster experience for our clients that includes a more cohesive codebase, quicker development output, and increased reliability and overall performance.

To do this, we used React and Node — JavaScript languages that appeal to a broad pool of developers. The same code can run on both servers and browsers, and allows us to leverage modern front end optimization tools.

Here's a quick rundown of what React, AMP, and Node are, and how RebelMouse has used them to create an AMP-focused front end experience that's fit for the next decade of publishing.
