How We Do Website Redesigns

Did you know that we offer website redesign services that don't require you to re-platform to RebelMouse? We understand the word "redesign" can seem a bit daunting, but a high-quality, well-functioning site is of paramount importance to your social traffic and success. Facebook announced earlier this year that they would kill reach to posts that link to low-quality, spammy sites — and any site containing a video ad is now considered Facebook enemy No. 1.

Let us help.


RebelMouse offers standalone redesign services separate from all of our other offerings. Our team of experts can work with you to make sure your content is taking full advantage of your site's current design and delivering meaningful ROI. By weaving social connections into our product, and studying what resonates with audiences through what is and isn't working across many different clients, we make it easy for anyone to launch a site that is as intuitive to users as scrolling through Instagram.

It's how we've built some of the biggest new media pop culture hits of our times.

There's no need to complicate or overthink things. We'll analyze your site's navigation structure and how well users interact with your content to create a mix of design, user experience, and branding recommendations that will better capture your audiences.

Key components of our website redesigns:

Audit traffic patterns and sources. We get down and dirty with your data to see where your audiences live and where to uncover new opportunities for growth.

We grew Odyssey Online by nearly two million new users in just one month by understanding where their most meaningful traffic comes from.

Identify key growth potential. We have an eye for where your treasure chest is located. We'll make sure your site is optimized for the content and features that create loyalty, and in turn, revenue and audience growth.

We can help you click with the right audiences to bring in serious engagement and growth potential.

Create a design that keeps users longer, encourages them to share more, and works with Facebook's algorithms. We were born in the age of social, which means we have a deep understanding of how a site design should work in harmony with social channels. True growth comes when content can move across platforms easily — that same ease should be reflected on your site. We create experiences that mimic the social feeds.

Axios is benefitting from our Social UX for Media format, which makes your site as viral and binge-worthy as the social feeds.

Integrate monetization options into your design, including native, programmatic, and social sells. The way revenue is made in the world of new media is always changing. We keep up with these constant updates so you don't have to. We ensure your ads are non-intrusive and favored by the many algorithms so that both your ROI and user experience aren't negatively affected.

We helped One Country experience 200% revenue growth this year.

RebelMouse offers an array of standalone strategy services separate from our CMS platform. Whether you need help with a redesign, content and distribution, product strategy, or anything else, our team of experts are here to ensure you get the most out of your current setup to create a thriving brand in the age of social.

Why Premium Creative Agencies and CTOs Choose to Develop on RebelMouse vs. WordPress and Drupal

The Intersection of Design and Development: Where Your Clients Thrive

We started RebelMouse seven years ago knowing that there was a fundamental design flaw in the world of traditional CMSs: Every instance, on every platform, had to be updated independently. It's similar to an era when users had to manage their own Microsoft Exchange Server for email. The costs of managing, maintaining, and iterating on a CMS to keep it awesome and world class is typically a $10 million-a-year endeavor. But even then, these cost-prohibitive CMSs are still behind the times.

Native Multivariate Testing at Scale With RebelMouse

What Differentiates Our Approach

There are many popular tools that allow you to perform experiments and A/B tests on your users — primarily Google Chrome Experiments and Optimizely. But all of these solutions are JavaScript additions to your web page that sidestep the problem of old, outdated, and clumsy CMSs. These solutions work by calling on a third-party JavaScript library that rewrites a page after it's rendered. This approach adds extra page weight and creates strange user experiences due to having to wait for everything to load and be rewritten on the fly.

At RebelMouse, we've solved this in a very elegant way. At the core level of our platform, we can natively render different layouts and track the exact differences in performance when comparing a test to your other layouts.

Building Premium Communities and User Journeys on RebelMouse

RebelMouse is much more than just a replacement for a traditional CMS. Our platform is a tremendous community-building experience. Today's social ecosystem has given us a seemingly limitless number of premium creators who understand how to create gorgeous 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. 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.

How to Monetize Your Website in Today’s Publishing Environment

In order to define distributive publishing, we have to ask the following question: If you have quality content, but nobody sees it, does it even exist? The answer is no, because your content needs to be supported in a way that lets it move seamlessly across all channels, especially site, search, and social. But let's take this question a step further: If you can't monetize your content to generate the support it needs, how do you create quality content in the first place?

How to Monetize Your Site on RebelMouse

Leverage Our Platform to Sell Digital Ads That Overperform

For years now, digital publishers have experienced a collective push to diversify their revenue streams. As online readership becomes more complex, publishers cannot rely on a one-trick monetization method to secure success.

The COVID-19 crisis in 2020 was an even bigger wake-up call for publishers to create a dynamic revenue plan. The timing of the pandemic aligned with the new reality of a cookie-less world, which has completely reprioritized user experience and what it means to build audience loyalty. This means in 2021, publishers need a solid first-party data strategy and a modern revenue plan that can withstand more months of uncertainty to come.

Let's find the right revenue plan for your site. Here are just a handful of ways our next-generation publishing platform supports multiple monetization methods at once.

How Site Performance Shifted in 2020: RebelMouse Page Speed Updates

Google updated how it measures page performance during the pandemic. Here's how our product changed, too.

2020 was a year that shook every industry to its core. As workforces and workflows everywhere shifted, the digital publishing space was left to pick up the pieces of what it means to create content in a pandemic-filled world.

At RebelMouse, we examined the impact of COVID-19 on marketing strategies. You can read more about our findings here. However, as we round out a turbulent year, some publishers think 2020 will be a positive turning point for the industry overall. More people at home and being online has increased the need for quality content more than ever. Audiences are paying attention to where and how they consume content, and advertisers are taking notice of this pattern change, too.

Because of this, content deliverability is what will define what makes a successful publisher in 2020 and beyond. Audiences will only tolerate quality content, and they will only consume it on a site that provides a next-level site experience.
