Introducing Rebels for Good

Culture is malleable. It is ideas that change culture. Ideas have never spread so fast. It's possible for us to use the power of understanding how ideas can spread to help the good ones flourish. We live in a time with an increasingly dire and overwhelmingly important battle between good and evil. Trump and other political leaders amass power by spreading hate and ideas that cause emotional fear and panic.


We made a decision in November to dedicate the forces of RebelMouse to good. I can't tell you how proud I am of the portfolio of amazing new media properties that are spreading information that informs, creates connections, leads, and inspires movements and purpose.

We are building a network effect now, where sites dedicated to good can share traffic on web and social with each other, build off each other's audiences, and build what will become the future of media. The creators don't go to work in skyscrapers or office parks. They wake up around the world every day. Genuine people with a passion who are making the world better story by story.

If you are running an effort to change the world through media, please email us and join the amazing people already engaged to publish across every platform and make the world a better place.

RebelMouse vs. WordPress VIP

After building the product for Huffington Post, and owning the product and engineering groups at AOL after we were acquired, it was clear to me there was a huge gap between what the current CMS offering gave the world and what the world needed. Five years later we are at scale, moving the needle and doing to WordPress what Airbnb did to Craigslist.

Building Relationships to Build a Better Future

It's far too easy to get lost in a medley of metrics when you work in digital media. We're guilty of it here too. We harp on client success stories, software updates, audience reach, revenue, and each and every Facebook algorithm update that comes our way all the time.

But there's one thing that really makes us tick here at RebelMouse: The relationships we build with our clients. We pride ourselves on working with brilliant minds as we collectively build a better future through media. We are very open + vocal about our ethics and beliefs here. We fire clients whose morals contradict ours, and hire those whose we support. It's part of what makes it easy to get up and work toward a better future each morning.

This post is dedicated to our beautiful clients, and the love we have for each other. To hear a client sing praise about their appreciation for a Rebel team member gives us just as many goosebumps as seeing an entirely green Google Analytics home page. So here are a few stories that gave us all the feels this week at RebelMouse:

How One Country Turned a Fan Following into a Monetization Powerhouse

Country isn't a zip code. Country is a state of mind. That's the core strategy behind One Country — a new media company dedicated to celebrating country music culture through not just music, but fashion, food, and lifestyle.

One Country was originally on WordPress before switching to RebelMouse. But after enjoying publishing on the RebelMouse platform for several years, their ownership changed and One Country's future became uncertain. Everyone — including RebelMouse founder Paul Berry, who served on One Country's advisory board at the time — knew One Country was a powerful asset with the potential to turn a loyal following into real revenue.

Your Website Roadmap Is Outdated: Why You Need the RebelMouse Compass

Technology continues to accelerate the way we consume + interact with media. And while media companies are looking for a way to keep up with the times, they're following a roadmap that ultimately leads them nowhere. They're caught in a hamster wheel chasing these ever-changing trends.

What works within the social sphere changes constantly, not to mention fast. We've seen it with the recent big push to video, mobile's domination, paid subscription models, etc. But trends are fickle, and with the constant algorithm updates, platforms steal most of the spotlight — taking focus away from vital audience building and monetization on sites.

RebelMouse was built in the age of social, so we are well equipped to handle these disruptions. Our clients are seeing crazy results amidst the changing social landscape because we've mastered the right mix of strategy + tech to propel them into the future.
