RebelMouse vs. Contentful

Contentful was built as a developer-first platform with a "headless CMS" approach that appeals to engineers. However, what Contentful customers end up lacking is a product that solves improved page speed, pages per visit, and organic growth. Contentful gives you an API framework to work with, but leaves you with all the work of creating the site experience. As of 2019, Google is heavily penalizing hastily built experiences that result in poor page speed, as is Facebook. And page speed is crucial for reach and revenue. So if you're on Contentful, check out your page speed and then realize that you could have years of work ahead to fix the issues yourself.

RebelMouse, on the other hand, was proudly built to be a product that actually achieves the goals that CMOs, CEOs, and CIOs need their digital product to fulfill. Problems with page speed and low pages per visit? We've solved these problems for you. Looking for opportunities for editors to have a better experience? We've solved this as well.

The difference is clear when we look at the page speed scores of major brands using Contentful...

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.
