Today is a very good day. Today we’re re-launching the Firefox Affiliates program, a centralized hub for getting and sharing Firefox and Mozilla download buttons.
Unlike traditional affiliate programs, Firefox Affiliates doesn’t dole out cash for clicks or downloads. Instead top affiliates will get prizes, praise and good vibes. Top affiliates will be featured on the leaderboards (which update daily, so easy on that refresh button) and qualify for all kinds of great Firefox prizes.
The first set of buttons available are Firefox for Desktop, Firefox for Mobile and Firefox Plugin checker. Thanks to our amazing l10n and creative teams, these buttons are available in all launch locales: EN-US, ES, PT-BR, DE, Zh-TW, NL, Fy-NL, PL and SL. More locales will be added in the coming weeks. If you’re interested in adding a locale, please contact Stas Malolepszy, Milos Dinic or me for details. Mozilla recruiting buttons are currently available in EN-US, but will expanded to more locales as the contributor on-boarding process is expanded.
While we’re very happy that Firefox Affiliates has launched, it doesn’t stop there. We will continue to add more buttons, locales and features to the program. To do that, we need your help. If you’re interested in becoming a part of the Firefox Affiliates team, contact us at email@example.com or come hang out with us in #affiliates in irc.
I’d like to personally thank the kick-ass Affiliates build and launch team for getting this project up and running: Chris More, Mike Kelly, Corey Shields, Stas Malolepszy, Milos Dinic, Fred Wenzel, Matthew Brandt, Stephen Donner, Rebecca Billings, Paul Booker, Yvan Boily, Jason Thomas, Tobias Markus, Dave Dash, Alex Mayes, Ty Flanagan, Matej Novak, Laura Forrest and our amazing localizers. ^5s to all.
