RebelMouse vs. WordPress VIP
After building the product for Huffington Post, and owning the product and engineering groups at AOL after we were acquired, it was clear to me there was a huge gap between what the current CMS offering gave the world and what the world needed. Five years later we are at scale, moving the needle and doing to WordPress what Airbnb did to Craigslist.
Easy Migrations — the Re-Platform Remastered
We create growth with every re-platform. And it doesn't take months, it takes hours or days. We can suck up a WordPress site, optimize its page speed, the user experience, the balance of ads, and how you monetize. We do it in our sleep now.
We are simply the best in the world at this and have taken it to another level.
You'll grow in SEO, you'll grow in social, you'll grow in return users, you'll grow in the amount your users share, and that will, in turn, grow your total audience.
We can set up test environments you send traffic to and show the dramatic comparison. We create growth.
A Better Experience for Readers — Social UX for Media
Everybody is building media sites wrong. We make it look simple. All the hard technology is at work behind the scenes. For readers, your content shines, is shareable, and your website becomes a rabbit hole that pulls users into more content that creates more sharing.
Better Social Distribution Tools — Cross-Platform Reach
It isn't just about publishing. There's a new content life cycle on the internet that leads to fast organic growth at dramatically lower cost. The key is understanding how to use social to your advantage instead of being lost in the noise. RebelMouse is a contagious media company, and the software turns organic growth into an efficient, repeatable, and scalable process.
Better Authoring Tools
Your writers, editors, creators, and community deserve tools that make them fast and efficient. It's also important that they follow a process that leads to best practices, so that the CMS itself is training your team with every post as they onboard.
Grabbing social content, building listicles and slideshows — RebelMouse makes everything simple, clean, and easy for writers.
Analytics and Management Tools
But it's also important for you to manage your writers, see their performance, enable them to learn from each other, and help them become data driven. RebelMouse analytics provide you with a clear view of who is performing, what posts are working, and where that content is gaining traction.
We also have deep Google Analytics integration, so you can easily add in components, promos, third-party units, and ad units. But most importantly, as they're being added, they are set up in staged environments automatically, and the traffic performance from these tests can be traced back to impact on bounce rate, pages/session, session duration, number of shares, percent of shares per visit, and unique custom goals for your business.
You might have the feeling we could go on a bit longer. We could! This is a passion for us. Come talk to us and let's get growing together.
At RebelMouse, we believe your content won't be successful if you just talk about yourself. Content has to be multidimensional and dynamic to gain a captive and loyal audience. Our distribution tools bleed together social + content into a seamless process once and for all.
In the age of the Instagram influencer, the power of user-generated content (UGC) is strong. We've created a content feeds structure within our CMS that instantly populates your site with a variety of editorially-aligned content. The Content Feeds dashboard allows you to manage and curate UGC, and connect RSS Feeds to your site to give visitors more of what they love without straining your editorial resources.
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:

Growing up, my dad started a software company — which gave me the chance to learn how to write code from a very young age. I loved it immediately. The act of creating! A lot of people think of coding as a math or science, but I have always seen it as an artistic language. From the moment I touched code, it was an act of expression for me. My first code was a "Choose Your Own Adventure" experience — it was truly an act of writing and a different way of telling a story.
What I realized quickly as I entered my career in my late teens and early 20s, was that people wanted to put me in a box as just "the developer." I always wanted much more than to just write code and be told what tech should do. I had already worked on viral projects (Dog Island is particularly fun) and built a real eCommerce business for Palo Alto Software.
RebelMouse can help you grow Instagram followers + drive growth on all social platforms. Let's create contagious media together!
What started as a simple, social photo-sharing app has turned into a daily staple in the lives of 400 million people. Instagram continues to shatter new benchmarks and establish its dominance in the age of social with no signs of slowing down.
Instagram's success hasn't gone unnoticed. Influencers, advertisers, and brands are going all in, capitalizing on all the eyeballs using the platform as yet another means of monetization. Publishers are piling into Instagram video, too. 2017 is certainly the year businesses take notice of Instagram.
RebelMouse is the best CMS for social growth, with a platform built for content creators to thrive in the age of social. See how we got here + how you can join us and start growing within days!
Chances are that the CMS you work in every day was built before social — before the idea of distributed content was even coined. Even though publishing has changed dramatically, a lot of that heavy and outdated tech still exists today.
For example, WordPress has more than 87 million sites, but each platform update still has to be pushed out individually to each and every one of those customers. By contrast, RebelMouse is a centralized CMS, meaning our updates are pushed out to all of our sites at once (and sometimes even multiple times a day). We are always updating and integrating which is why we are quickly becoming the most sought-after alternative to WordPress VIP, with a platform that features content creation tools integrated directly into social APIs.
Websites became a part of our lives long before the revelation that fans are born in the feeds. The opportunity to reach huge social audiences is now, but that doesn't mean the website is dead. Publishing has just evolved.
WordPress security plugins don't work and often leave sites vulnerable to hacking. Join RebelMouse to reach a larger audience safely!
With more than 87 million sites worldwide, WordPress is the leading CMS of the internet. But being a leader in your space doesn't come without its pitfalls. WordPress's massive site structure has opened them up to many security threats since the software's 2003 launch.
A severe hacking event shocked WP users in February 2017, when attackers penetrated 1.5 million sites thanks to a loophole within the WordPress REST API. The REST API was touted as a connector to enhance communication with other web programs, revolutionizing WP's own outdated API. A vulnerability in the REST API allowed hackers to infiltrate nearly 2 million sites — compromising up to 350,000 sites in one campaign alone.
Velocity Alerts put your content on the fast-track to viral success!
It's awesome when your content takes off and starts to go "viral." But what if you could know the moment your content starts trending so you can take advantage of the momentum and push it even further?
This is where Velocity Alerts, unique to the RebelMouse platform, come into play. With Velocity Alerts, your team is notified when a post starts to trend so you can "add fuel to the fire" by featuring the post more prominently on your site, triggering newsletter alerts, or promoting on social.
Chances are the CMS you're using was created before social. If that's true, you may still view content on your website and social feeds as two different entities you have to control and manage. We're here to blur those lines for you and take publishing where it needs to be in 2017.
Decentralized models such as WordPress VIP lack the social integration necessary to mimic the feeds, and that's why they continue to fall behind. We've created a toolset to not only distribute your content on the platforms (where all the eyeballs are), but also let your content travel across platforms easily.
Our social CRM allows you to engage with influencer accounts without the laborious task of finding them.
Here's how it works.
