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.

How to Include Interactive Elements in Posts

Enhance your articles with rich and creative media

Every article is a fresh chance to grab new readers and nurture loyal followers. This is why we give creators every opportunity to build content rich with media elements that enhance every reader's experience.

Add More Layers to Your Content

You can easily add interactive elements, like charts, to posts on our platform. For example, if you need to embed iframe code into a post, this can be done via our Add Media Bar. To do so, click the code icon (< >):

A text box will appear so you can insert your code:

Embedded Code Across Platforms

One important thing to keep in mind is that Google AMP, AppleNews, and Facebook Instant Articles will not always support embedded code. So if you use an iframe, it's best to turn off distribution to those channels for that particular post. If you have a lot of posts that require embedded code, this could be problematic for growth across those important platforms.

If you do want to use an iframe on a post destined for Google AMP distribution, it can be possible if the iframe is not at the top of the page or within the first 75% of the viewport when the page is scrolled to the top (whichever is smaller). AMP is a fast technology designed for mobile users and iframes are loaded using arbitrary timing that AMP's technology cannot ensure. For this reason, it's suggested that iframes be included in places that are not visible by users upon load.

If you have an article that needs to include an iframe at the top of the page, or within the first 75% of the viewport, AMP can be turned off for that individual article within Entry Editor.

If you don't need an interactive chart to be interactive in nature, can turn it into an image and upload it directly to your post. This way it will work on all platforms, including Google AMP, Apple News, and Facebook Instant Articles. This option, when possible, is ideal to ensure you're optimized for page speed.

Take Advantage of Shortcodes

Another great way to embed media is through our shortcodes functionality. Click here to learn more about shortcodes. Shortcodes can also inserted using the Add Media Bar. Click the brackets icon ([ ]) to choose the shortcode you want to use.

Here's an example of a chart on an article page that's been inserted using a shortcode:

Shortcodes Dashboard: Dynamic Media in Just a Few Clicks

Create multidimensional content with easy-to-find shortcodes

We believe static media is dead, and that every piece of content should be multidimensional and engaging. This is why our platform enables creators so they can add dynamic media to their content in easy and efficient ways.

One simple way to add interactive content to any post is through the use of shortcodes. Shortcodes are small snippets of code that are easier to remember than longer sequences. They typically will activate a feature or embed media into an article.
