Description

6 years ago
A recent test showed that the Droid graphic converted better than our existing generic phone. 

http://forrestthroughthetrees.blogspot.com/2011/10/droid-vs-foxdroid-death-match.html

Please batch import the Android snippet graphic into all the existing "Promote Mobile Firefox Android XX" snippets where XX is the locale into both staging and production. These are currently live. This graphic will replace the existing mobile phone graphic. 

Please also change the client match rule from "Firefox Current" to "Firefox All GA" client match rule.

Timing: since this is proven to increase conversion, it would be great to have this within the next two weeks, by 10/20. 

Chris: is this doable? If so, please assign to whoever should take it from here.

Hey Folks - Please let us know about the timing of this, if we need more resources, etc. Since we know this increases conversion we'd like to get this live soon, and just entails some sort of batch import. 

We should make changes like this systematically easy, if they're not already.

After a bit of messing about, I've found that figuring out how to properly batch import these will take longer than just doing it manually. Either Chris or myself can do the importing manually.

Also, does this really need to be done on stage? Since we're going to be putting new snippets on production only anyway, I don't see much point in doing this on stage beyond a test snippet.

Production is fine. I can help if it's a manual import - I don't want to take dev time on that. 

Note though that we may be doing things like this in the future as well - I'd like to start testing images more, the winner would be rolled out to all locales. Consider that when we think about batch import/snippet service features.

Agreed, this needs more thought.

One possible solution is to stop embedding images in snippets and instead throw them on a CDN with a static filename. Then, we can swap out the image for another one if we want to change it. This may not be feasible due to high traffic, though.

I'll look into this more.
