Marketing, Press & Public Reaction

~~ New Items ~~ Happy Birthday Firefox! (New): Firefox turns 9 next week on November 9th. To help celebrate the Engagement Team is launching a campaign to share our accomplishments with our users and industry press via a blog post, snippets, email, and social. Get ready to wish Firefox a happy golden birthday! [PR Team, User Engagement]

~~ Headlines & Accomplishments ~~ Consumer Value Proposition Discovery: This one has been on this list for a while and is reaching another milestone this week. The survey will be signed off on this Wednesday and translation will start for the regions where this will launch: Russia, Brazil, India, Indonesia, US, and Germany. [Laura]

Search Engine Optimization: Our first measurement to gauge how this is working was last week. The conclusion was that two weeks is just too early to judge SEO results. The next check-in will happen in another two weeks looking at a month worth of Data [Laura, Chris More, Jen B, Global Strategies]

~~ Key Next Steps ~~ Brazil Desktop Campaign: We're currently designing a campaign to coincide with the launch of Firefox OS in Brazil in order to leverage our partner's spend in this region since Firefox will "be in the air." This week we'll be deciding on campaign concepts that were proposed last week. [Kristin, Laura & NoBox]

Australis Marketing Launch: The launch strategy has been finalized across engagement and we're now in "wave" planning mode (a "wave" is a name for a large cross-engagement marketing campaign). This week the Engagement Leads will review the Wave RASCI and then we can start cracking. [Laura]

Indonesia Desktop Campaign: Viking from the Indonesia campaign is driving a large-scale national campaign to help increase usage levels within Indonesia within Q4. Next step: decide on a launch date and then launch the thing! [Gen, Viking]
