They came to RebelMouse with their own tech team and grew immediately after making the switch. The beauty of our CMS is that you can be either a publisher with existing teams and strategies already in place, or just starting from scratch — we adapt to meet the level of support you need.

Their current year-to-date stats shown below, compared to the previous period, demonstrate the levels of success you can experience on RebelMouse when you focus on taking advantage of everything our platform offers. Huge tech budgets are not required to succeed.

Rebel Case Study: PAPER Magazine

PAPER Magazine has been on our platform for four years, and saw another record year again in 2018. In one single day, they did 21M pageviews alone. Although that day dwarfs other aspects of these particular charts, they had continuous organic growth and premium campaigns with major brands.

Rebel Case Study: SportsMap

Rebel Case Study: La Verità

La Verità is approximately a year and a half out from launch on RebelMouse. It's the highest growth media property in Italy, and they are doing all of this growth behind a paywall. The depth of engagement from their users is unheard of.

Rebel Case Study: VYPE Media

VYPE Media launched on RebelMouse just before summer 2019, and across the board it has seen remarkable growth in a relatively short time frame when compared to its performance on its previous platform.

Rebel Case Study: Motherly

Motherly is a case study for moving from a bad CMS (that was "good enough") over to RebelMouse. For more than a year they were stuck with either no growth or declining. Since moving to RebelMouse, the growth has been incredible.

Rebel Case Study: It's a Southern Thing

It's a Southern Thing was a case study in how to turn a website that is underperforming into a massive growth engine. This is the highest growth property in the portfolio of its parent company, and it keeps growing.

Moving into 2019, It's a Southern Thing has continued its journey on RebelMouse with solid growth in most categories, and excellent gains from Facebook and Google.

Rebel Case Study: United Airlines

This was a massive year for United Airlines with huge organic reach for an entrenched brand. Contests and content expansion led to organic growth on all platforms and a deeper engagement with customers.

Rebel Case Study: GZERO Media

GZERO Media's move from WordPress to RebelMouse resulted in immediate, mind-boggling growth in reach and loyalty.

Approximately nine months after replatforming, GZERO Media continues to grow at a blistering pace. Since launching on RebelMouse, they have more than tripled their monthly users. And based on the recent trends we're seeing, the growth is just getting started.

And to really drive home how amazing GZERO Media's user and visitor growth has been since moving to RebelMouse, here's a look at their growth in 2019, year to date, year over year. The numbers speak for themselves.

How Dance Magazine Took the Leap to Digital with RebelMouse

The Challenge

Dance Magazine is a beloved and storied print magazine. Over the decades, Dance Magazine has established itself as an icon in the dance industry, read by dancers of every age at every stage of their career.

Fred Seegal, Dance Magazine's owner, knew that there was a tremendous opportunity to take the company forward into a social-first publisher that could gain a large audience on the web. Fred also knew that trying to build this change from within through hiring would be extremely expensive, slow, and have a low chance of success. Fred had seen the work RebelMouse had done building The Dodo into the fifth largest publisher on Facebook, and our work with PAPER Magazine to rebuild them into a digital-first property. Our challenge together was clear: modernize the company, and build a new audience and a new digital revenue stream.

Rebel Case Study: The Dodo

For the love of animals, a story of success in distributed content.

In January 2014, Izzie Lerer wanted to transform her love of animals — and animal rights issues — into something positive, informative, and entertaining.

The world of content surrounding animals and pets was crowded to say the least, but Lerer wanted something that could be easily managed with contributions across editors, content partners, and community members.

RebelMouse's platform was the solution. Lerer launched The Dodo as a participatory community platform — not just for animal lovers, but for everyone with a soft spot for a good story.

What happened next was extraordinary.
