Launching a Community on RebelMouse

The current social ecosystem has given us a seemingly limitless number of premium creators who understand how to create dynamic and relevant content that drives the growth of their own audiences. These creators and influencers are either experts in certain topics, or heavily engaged in targeted content that drives their interests. They're not only consuming the content they're passionate about, but they're contributing to the conversation, too.


Thankfully, media is no longer a static relationship between the writer and the reader. The new role of the editor is not just to cover the most important topics and people around their expertise, but also to invite those preferred influencers into their community and get them to participate in creating premium content.

It's time for publishers to take advantage of the opportunities content creators and their networks — which are often formed organically — have to offer. Our community platform is not only designed to encourage these relationships, but nurture them into a loyal follower base.

Community Contests

Launch contests designed to give you access to the best contributors and creators in the world, create a traffic splash and spike in organic traffic, and amass a content library of media and articles submitted by users that you can then repurpose to build more traffic.

Dynamic and Extensible Workflow Tools

Our platform allows you to create a simplified and streamlined experience to protect the integrity of your communities. This means you can ensure that only contributors of a certain level can send content for review, not publish. Once submitted, other members who are allowed to review and edit, as well as members who can publish to your site and/or publish to social, take the submitted content to its final destination after a thorough review.

Each community should have its own front page that features its content and members. This requires custom design and coding in our Layout & Design tool.
