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.

How to Include Interactive Elements in Posts

Enhance your articles with rich and creative media

Every article is a fresh chance to grab new readers and nurture loyal followers. This is why we give creators every opportunity to build content rich with media elements that enhance every reader's experience.

Add More Layers to Your Content

You can easily add interactive elements, like charts, to posts on our platform. For example, if you need to embed iframe code into a post, this can be done via our Add Media Bar. To do so, click the code icon (< >):

A text box will appear so you can insert your code:

Embedded Code Across Platforms

One important thing to keep in mind is that Google AMP, AppleNews, and Facebook Instant Articles will not always support embedded code. So if you use an iframe, it's best to turn off distribution to those channels for that particular post. If you have a lot of posts that require embedded code, this could be problematic for growth across those important platforms.

If you do want to use an iframe on a post destined for Google AMP distribution, it can be possible if the iframe is not at the top of the page or within the first 75% of the viewport when the page is scrolled to the top (whichever is smaller). AMP is a fast technology designed for mobile users and iframes are loaded using arbitrary timing that AMP's technology cannot ensure. For this reason, it's suggested that iframes be included in places that are not visible by users upon load.

If you have an article that needs to include an iframe at the top of the page, or within the first 75% of the viewport, AMP can be turned off for that individual article within Entry Editor.

If you don't need an interactive chart to be interactive in nature, can turn it into an image and upload it directly to your post. This way it will work on all platforms, including Google AMP, Apple News, and Facebook Instant Articles. This option, when possible, is ideal to ensure you're optimized for page speed.

Take Advantage of Shortcodes

Another great way to embed media is through our shortcodes functionality. Click here to learn more about shortcodes. Shortcodes can also inserted using the Add Media Bar. Click the brackets icon ([ ]) to choose the shortcode you want to use.

Here's an example of a chart on an article page that's been inserted using a shortcode:

If you have any questions about how to add interactive elements to your content, please email support@rebelmouse.com or talk to your account manager today.

Shortcodes Dashboard: Dynamic Media in Just a Few Clicks

Create multidimensional content with easy-to-find shortcodes

We believe static media is dead, and that every piece of content should be multidimensional and engaging. This is why our platform enables creators so they can add dynamic media to their content in easy and efficient ways.

One simple way to add interactive content to any post is through the use of shortcodes. Shortcodes are small snippets of code that are easier to remember than longer sequences. They typically will activate a feature or embed media into an article.

How to Add Scalable Vector Graphics to RebelMouse

Quickly add an SVG to any page

To add an SVG to your RebelMouse site, first go to your Layout & Design tool. Next, open the SVG in a code editor and copy the entire <svg> element. Then, add a Custom HTML element to your layout and paste in the SVG code:

How to Find Work-Life Balance as a Remote Employee

Tips from our CEO on making the most of an office-free lifestyle

Working from home is becoming increasingly popular, with an estimated 66% of companies now allowing remote work and 16% operating completely office-free. RebelMouse is one of those fully remote companies, and over the years we've mastered how to stay close to each other despite being spread across more than a dozen countries. We believe working remotely is good for both our personal lives and our productivity. Read more about this here.

Still, working free from the shackles of an office environment doesn't mean every day is a dance party in your pajamas from 9 to 5. Working from home comes with its own set of challenges just like any other job.

Canvas Page and Shareable Element: An Easier Way to Organize

In our Layout & Design tool, you have the option to create new pages and reuse them anywhere within your templates. With this update, we wanted to create a clear distinction between what is used as a Canvas page — a blank page, open to any design and structure — and a Shareable Element — a block or page created specifically to be reused as a module within another page or site.
