A number of improvements have been made to SpreadFirefox.com (SFX) over the summer, and Alix Franquet has been closely involved with that work. Alix has now blogged about the next steps for SFX, outlining a three-part redesign that will be undertaken towards improving the homepage and overall site navigation. These three parts include: creating a simplified homepage that better explains what SFX is about and that includes a community spotlight and a call to action; a new page for SFX members to track activity so they can better see what’s happening on the site including events, new groups, and new posts; and updating the site navigation to improve overall usability. There are lots more details about the planned changes in Alix’s blog post, and you can read the full plan over on SFX itself. We’re always looking for more help with SFX, so this could be a great opportunity to dive in and get involved with Mozilla’s community marketing projects.

David Rolnitzky recently announced a number of improvements to the Spread Firefox Affiliates program. The Affiliates program is designed to make it easier for our community to spread the word about Firefox by providing website buttons and banners, as well as quarterly prizes for the top Firefox referers. “Some of the improvements are user-facing and some of them are back-end improvements which, while not immediately obvious, will be of great benefit to the program. You can find the initial details for this improvement plan here.” Improvements include clearer information about how to get started and how the points system works, better organization of buttons and banners, a new selection of international buttons, a custom button creation facility, and a new incentive system, among other things. For full details, read David’s blog post, and head over to the Affiliates program site to sign up and learn how you can help make Firefox even better.
