The Firefox Affiliates program was launched in 2011, acting as a hub for banners that Firefox and Mozilla supporters can add to their websites, blogs and Facebook walls. The system is available in more than 15 languages and affiliate buttons are available in more than 30 (Yes, Mozilla localizers are the best).
The site has driven millions of clicks to download over the last two years. So it is with great delight that I share that the time has come to update and enhance Firefox Affiliates. Affiliates have been writing in with suggestions for how we can improve the system and now the time has come where we can put that feedback to use.
It is also time for you to speak up and let us know what would make the Affiliates experience great for you. Requests so far include adding more types of banners and links to the system, gamification for participation, a better mobile experience and options for banner customization.
If would be hugely helpful if you could fill out this survey to help us prioritize where we want to put our energies first.
There are about 100,000 use registered as Firefox Affiliates so another priority will be surfacing other opportunities for them to support Firefox and Mozilla beyond hosting a banner. They have already taken some action as a supporter, so we will be doing a lot of thinking about what other interesting activities to invite them to participate in.
We will also be updating the visual design of the program, bringing it in line with the Sandstone branding that all Mozilla sites use.
All in all, 2014 is going to be an exciting time for the Affiliates program. If you have thoughts, please fill out the form or leave them in the comments. You can also find us in #affiliates on IRC.
