Introducing: Entry Editor Upgrades

RebelMouse is a community of content creators who know what it takes to create contagious media. That's why we are always improving on the creation process. We're constantly perfecting a workflow that sets up each piece of content for revenue-focused, social success.

Our Entry Editor is the ultimate toolset. It's the intersection where content, social, and distribution finally bleed together. We've made some innovative updates to our Entry Editor to make the content creation process even better. Here's the latest:


New Preview View

Now you can preview your post anytime within the same window of the Entry Editor to see your work transform in real time. And when you're ready to get back to work? Simply click "Edit" to return back to the Entry Editor interface at any time.

New Mobile Media Search with Infinite Scroll

Social curation on mobile has never been easier. With this updated feature, blend together social elements to make your content multidimensional (because only talking about yourself is boring).

When using our listicle tool, you can now insert multiple images and videos within the body of your post. For example, writing a story on rock climbing? Pull up the five best Facebook videos of rock climbing, embed Instagram posts from industry influencers, and even sprinkle in some GIFs from GIPHY if you want. The best part? The search results are infinite.

Click here to learn more about mobile social curation. This feature is also available on desktop.

Slideshows in Listicles

We love a good listicle. Always have, always will. But now we've taken listicles to the next level by allowing each list point to become a multimedia slideshow. Vice versa — you can also turn your slideshow into a listicle just as easily. Either way, this feature transforms your content into bite-sized pieces that are apt for social sharing across platforms.

Click here for step-by-step instructions on how to make your listicle the best it can be. The results are stunning.

Email Influencers on Every Post

Our Entry Editor is designed to reach influencers on a variety of outreach levels before, during, and after publish. Find potential sharing partners on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, and use our proprietary technology to email them a message. You can identify email search results via page tag, add news ones manually, and even edit the message template directly from the editor.

The power of name recognition is real, so make sure every page, profile, and influencer who would be interested in your content has a chance to see it. It's why a distribution strategy is so important and it's the backbone of our product.

Update to Social Scheduling

We're obsessed with bleeding together social + content. We believe the two are no longer separate strategies to be managed individually. That's why we are constantly updating our social scheduling tools.

Now, schedule your Facebook + Twitter posts via two different tabs within the Entry Editor. This allows you to never have social as an afterthought and to customize your copy for each platform easily.

Upgrade to Lead Media

Say goodbye to the pop-up that used to appear when you inserted lead media. Now, when you add an image or video to the lead media section, the cropping tool won't appear at all. It will be cropped with face detection automatically, freeing you from the unwanted previous steps. If you want to crop it manually, you can click the cropping icon.

Suggested Facebook Targets

We've taken social sharing one step further. Now, you can connect with influencers in a flash. When you add a Facebook video from a URL, you will automatically see that Facebook video's author as a suggested Facebook target to tag + interact with.

Automated Mentioning

Mentioning the author is fast and simple, thanks to our automated mentioning tool. @mentioning doesn't even have to be typed in. You can simply click to @mention one of the targets we suggested, as shown above.

Multiple Select

If you multiple select several Facebook videos in the Add Media bar, the authors of those videos will show up as suggested targets in the scheduling tool. See it all in action in the video above. 👆

Hey there — FYI: The reason we have so many frequent updates is pretty special. RebelMouse is a centralized CMS, so we push out multiple product updates to our site network every day. This is different from decentralized CMS solutions like WordPress, which require updates to be employed to all sites — all 87+ million of them — one by one.

Why RebelMouse Is the Best Content Marketing Platform

RebelMouse is a unique platform and company. The company was founded on the vision that media companies would need an always-modern solution to thrive in the new connected internet, and that brands would have to behave like new media companies and use the same platforms.

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.

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.

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.

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.
