RebelMouse vs. Sitecore

RebelMouse is a cutting-edge CMS and creative agency that teaches media companies and brands how to build content and site experiences for today's dynamic landscape. How does RebelMouse compare to a platform like Sitecore?

Sitecore Focuses on the Funnel, Not Content

Sitecore is a customer experience platform that creates brand sites designed to move audiences through the funnel. But Sitecore built its sizable agency ecosystem by customizing Drupal solutions for brands, so clients still encounter the limitations and pitfalls that come from a traditional CMS: suboptimal site experiences that are extremely stressful and expensive to maintain and update over time. And with content so crucial to driving brand loyalty, Sitecore's suite of products are not modern enough to close the gap as brands fully embrace becoming publishers.

RebelMouse Provides Publishers With an Advantage

RebelMouse, founded by former HuffPost CTO Andrea Breanna, has the expertise, best practices, and modern technology to transform media companies and brands into confident publishers in today's dynamic landscape. Our clients become leaders in content and engagement in their respective categories because we're unique in how we guide content teams to success.

RebelMouse's platform leapfrogs traditional CMS solutions with a centralized, cloud-based model. Every feature update, infrastructure improvement, and security patch is pushed live to all of our clients at once without interruption. We constantly monitor industry giants like Google and Facebook, so our clients are always positioned to maximize organic search and social reach. We optimize for high page speed across mobile and desktop since we know Google heavily penalizes site experiences with poor page speed, as does Facebook, and potential customers are known to quickly abandon slow pages. Our tech is always iterating and automatically updating for our clients, which means investing less money in an all-encompassing solution that fuels more growth.

The Right Platform for Content Teams

RebelMouse makes it easy for cross-functional teams to build and manage publishing environments. Our authoring tools make editorial, audience development, and social teams efficient and savvy, thanks to our proprietary technology that's been engineered to optimize content across platforms. We give marketing and strategy teams digestible data to understand and better tailor content for strategies that drive meaningful traffic. Our design tools appeal to product teams because we make it simple to launch sophisticated new sites, new sections, and new campaigns that are already set up to include your full marketing stack. Plus, content and data are easily shareable across every relevant owned property. And our platform is a developer-friendly solution for engineers to deliver far better results and support to their companies without straining tech resources.

Our Formula for Growth Works

The value of RebelMouse's modern approach is clear once you look at the data. Compare the following Google PageSpeed Insights scores among brand-owned media sites. Keep in mind, we've set 60 as a benchmark score given how Google's own sites and apps perform.

Sitecore sites barely reach the benchmark. These types of scores will hurt brands trying to maximize organic reach and engagement.

RebelMouse CEO: Reimagining Diversity “Starts in the Office”

Why women, minorities, and the LGBTQ+ community will restructure workplace norms

Entering a new decade means a new opportunity to change how we approach diversity. In a joint interview alongside Leanne Pittsford of Lesbians Who Tech, RebelMouse founder and CEO Andrea Breanna said that the only way to fight patriarchal dominance is to encourage and nurture more women, minorities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace, particularly in tech.

Over half of RebelMouse's employees are women or identify as LGBTQ. Read our full diversity and inclusion report here.
