    Tesla Motors Paid advertising

    Tesla has been ramping up with actual paid advertising as opposed to only relying on the free marketing that comes with such a game changer.

    In the LA store there are two LA lifestyle magazines magazines on the counter where that store sprung for full page ads for the car and Store. I keep forgetting to write down the names of them for posterity.

    This page was the first time I notices that Tesla Motors had a paid Google Ad The Ultimate Driving Distraction: Electric Cars

    Just saw a Tesla advertisement for the first time - Wall Street Journal online. Ironically that could be a bad signal - Tesla - Visit the Tesla Store Menlo Park

    I just saw the same ad today. I too was equally shocked to see a Tesla ad. WSJ is probably a good target audience....

    I saw this ad yesterday on a website and laughed because the store was in California. I was just reading an article on the auto channel website and I saw an ad for the local New York store. I have been consciously watching all my driving and realized that a 160 mile range Model S will work fine for me.

    Came up on my mail page.

    How did it know I had an interest in tesla

    edit to add:
    Turns out it changes store locations when it comes up. Don't know if it's random or "knows" which to use. Neither of these are near me in LA.

    Did you know that google ads follow you? By that, I mean that if I'm advertising say Apples and you mention that you like fruit, you'll see my ad on grocery, banking and the TMC sites; google will hit you three or more times rather than hiting three people once. The theory being that you get confused and assume every except you is eating apples and that you need them now.

    Yeah, I think it's pretty cool for both advertiser and consumer. It's funny when the ads come up even if you say you hate apples too!
