NEW: Organize Your Content for Max Success

We're obsessed with optimizing your content for maximum performance both on site and on social. That's why we've added two new features to our RebelMouse platform to help supercharge your audience.


Introducing: Most Popular Layout

The old publishing roadmap taught us that the ultimate metric was the click. But the rise of social turned that best practice upside down, and publishers are just beginning to understand what new media looks like in 2017. It's about the scroll.

Our Social UX feature mimics the feeds and creates an infinite scroll of content. It's a layout that's created game-changing growth for our clients, like Axios and Azula.

Now RebelMouse clients have the ability to optimize the order of the scroll by what's resonating with their users. RebelMouse allows you to configure the order of your articles by what's performing best in a variety of time frames.

For example, your site layout could be ordered by stories with the most visitors in the past 24 hours. You can even A/B test different layouts and time periods to see what works well for your user growth.

​Update: Slideshows Are Even Prettier

There are some new changes to the slideshow feature inside the Particle Assembler. Each assembler you put together can be shown as a listicle or a slideshow. And now we've made it look even sleeker with clear thumbnails and navigation.

Check it out in action on Rebel 7x7's post Happy Place: Every Ridiculously Fun Thing to Do at the Museum of Ice Cream.

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.
