Easily Snap RebelMouse Into Slack

Easily Snap RebelMouse Into Slack

RebelMouse offers a Slack integration that allows you to sync your editorial process with Slack's notifications. We can set up three events that trigger notifications:

  • Changed stages in the editorial process
  • Edited a post
  • Published a post

Here's an example of how this looks:

We help you configure these events in our back end by using a Slack Webhook. The Webhook allows us to set up the template, what each notification says, and what channels to push to. Click here for more information on how to configure Webhooks, and review the following tutorial we've put together.

First, create a Slack app and enable Webhooks:

Next, create the Webhook:

Then, copy your new Webhook URL, and send it to support@rebelmouse.com:

A member of our support team will create a JSON file that we will then input on our back end, which will look something like this:

  "post_edit":{
    "channel":"https:\/\/hooks.slack.com\/services\/TL96RCFG8\/BLA75H4N9\/nBeiBlRpB0kQiXXXXXVSqRAk",
    "template":"{emitter_site_title} edited a post."
  },
  "workflow_stage_updated":{
    "channel":"https:\/\/hooks.slack.com\/services\/TL96RCFG8\/BLA75H4N9\/nBeiBlRpB0kQiXXXXXVSqRAk",
    "template":"Post set to '{stage_title}' stage."
  },
  "post_publish":{
    "channel":"https:\/\/hooks.slack.com\/services\/TL96RCFG8\/BLA75H4N9\/nBeiBlRpB0kQiXXXXXVSqRAk",
    "template":"{emitter_site_title} published a new post!"
  }
}

Here's how it will look on your Slack channel during testing:

If this is something you're interested in implementing, email support@rebelmouse.com and let us know. We'll help you get it set up.

Happy Slacking!

In 2023, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2023 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.
