Update: We have been successful in our three CrowdFunding projects: Beautiful Maps for Piwik which has now launched, and Custom Segment Editor. Our last feature Custom Alerts Plugin, has now been fully funded. Stay tuned for the next project.
We are working our best to make Piwik the ultimate Web Analytics Software, and also the best alternative to Google Analytics where you keep control of your data. We have a very clear idea of where we are heading, which we call:
We have selected the best of more than 400 ideas collected over the last three years. Piwik 2.0 will be the ultimate Open Source Web Analytics Platform, and we have planned some amazing new features: amazing detailed Visitor Maps, new analytics features, new reports, Custom Alerts, new Admin options, and much much more.
You can learn all about the features we want to work on in the Piwik 2.0 Roadmap page.
Crowd funding Piwik 2.0
Unfortunately, we are currently lacking the monetary resources to be able to work on new features as fast as we would like to. Therefore, we need YOUR help! Direct sponsoring and donations from our amazing community will allow us to make Piwik 2.0 happen in 2013 rather than in 2014 or even later.
If you are using Piwik, please consider supporting the Crowd funding project (starting at $10) if you wish to participate in the funding of your favorite feature, and thereby enable us to work on it. We do need your help guys and appreciate tremendously your support.
What is ‘CrowdFunding’?
Crowdfunding is a financing method that involves soliciting relatively modest contributions from a group of individuals.
What the funding revenue objectives?
Implementing and testing a new feature can take between 4 and 60 days of full time work by a software engineer from the Piwik team. All projects on the crowd funding site should have a funding objective between $500 and $5,000 USD.
What payment method are you accepting?
We are using Paypal because it offers the most flexibility in payment options. You can pay by credit card, bank transfer from most countries in the world. If you wish to donate a big amount, we can also produce an invoice or donation receipt as required.
Does it really work??
We have received some awesome support in our first crowdfunding campaigns, and more than 200 people donated to help us reach the goals. Past campaigns include: Beautiful SVG Visitors and Real time maps and the Custom Segment Editor. See also the article How to Crowdfund an Analytics Platform.
