NEW! Edit Media Tool for Post Images

It's no secret that imagery is critical to creating a compelling post. A captivating visual is what really helps drive shares and engagement on social. That's why we're constantly updating and creating new tools that enable you to create the perfect image-centric post. Meet the new Edit Media tool.


With the Edit Media tool, we've revamped how users can edit images and GIFs that are uploaded and/or inserted into the body of a post. Much like editing lead media, you now have the ability to crop images and GIFs within the body of a post using the same preset dimensions (2x1, 3x1, 3x2, 2x1, 16x9). This new interface makes it super easy, and even goes full screen on mobile to make editing a breeze.

Here are some benefits of using the Edit Media tool:

  1. Improved image and GIF optimization and a better display of your content.
  2. Because you can choose which crop size you prefer by default in the Layout and Design tool, you now have full control over how images and GIFs are displayed on all devices. This is a powerful combo!
The Highest-Quality Images Around
We've increased the quality of processed images (PNGs especially) so that they're even clearer and display immaculately across all devices. This includes PNG files with transparent backgrounds, animated GIFs, and more. We've also included a custom crop feature that allows you to skip the predefined ratios and choose your own crop size instead. Check out the video below to see this in action.

How to Thrive in a World Without Ads

Mike Mallazzo, Director of Marketing at Narrativ, recently wrote a post on Medium: "Life After Ads: The recent purchase of TIME should remind publishers of the power a strong brand can wield."

He discusses how some media companies are starting to question their total reliance on digital advertising. With Facebook and Google capturing the majority of revenue in the online advertising space, Mallazzo talks about how some companies are diversifying their revenue streams with models that depend on building loyalty and trust through subscriptions and commerce content in addition to just advertising. He writes:

"Media conglomerates have rediscovered the power of brand equity, offering the most plausible hope for sustainability since the proliferation of the internet."

At RebelMouse, however, we are still seeing digital advertising work. Our clients — such as Dance Magazine — are seeing huge success with digital advertising. But what if you were a media company in a world where traditional digital advertising didn't work at all? What would you do? How would you make money and continue to grow as a company?

The key is loyalty. You can't have a brand without loyalty.
