Tesla affiliate program for website operators

I think Tesla should have an affiliate program for website operators so enthusiasts can take part in making Tesla Motors the number 1 car company in the world. Tesla could hook up with and have people be able to order their electric car online through Amazon. Since Amazon already has a nice affiliate system set up, website operators could just put links on their websites and Tesla would gain a huge sales group for not much expense. I would definitely sign up for the affiliate program for my website. Say a website operator puts a link for ordering a Tesla on their website and someone clicks on it and orders one online. The website operator could get 4% of the sales price for example.

It would help sales go way up.

Anyone here from Tesla that can get it done?

This will not help sales at all, and Tesla needs to scale it's sales to match it's production capacity.

It would help sales because Amazon would have its millions of customers see the Teslas and website operators would help millions more see the Teslas and then we will need auto manufacturing plants in Detroit , Niagara Falls , and Texas to keep up with demand.

Think big

It's a good idea but not sure how well it will work at this point. Tesla is well over a decade or more from filling the capacity of the Tesla Factory. They're only planning on using about a tenth of the capacity for the Model S production.

Found this: 2006: Production at the Nummi plant peaks at 428,632 cars and trucks.

To make it clear, that dsm363 NUMMI plant figure is for one year production.

When that Model S starts to hit the streets and then the SUV -version of it, car starts to sell itself. You really don't need any third party to mess with it. When you consider buying BMW, do you go to I don't think so.

Buying some advertising space from major websites would be more than enough.

I agree with the above post. This is a horrible idea except for those like the original poster who will profit from it.

Tesla has over 4k reservations at a minimum of $5k a pop for a car nobody has driven. All that with no marketing/advertising. I think they will have no problem selling it once it is out.

Hi, I am the owner of this website, and with the keyword "electric cars for sale' my website get a good position in search. For that I am want to find a website that provides an opportunity to follow an affiliate about electric cars. When looking on google I found this tread. For that whether teslamotors affiliate has an opening now? Because I wanted to follow a program like this.

Best Regards


try, it's a well managed and moderated forum. Threads are well sorted for different subjects. Subjects include not only Tesla cars, but EVs in general and of different makers, charging, and so on.

I totally agree with Russ: Tesla should have an affiliate program. Not only because it could help their sales but also because it's a logical step within their innovative overall approach.

I think this is a HORRIBLE idea.

Tesla Motors should not be in a affiliate program like the topic starter has opted for. He wants 4% per Tesla car that will be sold via their website!!!!! He must be out of his mind, he should be sent to a home for crazy people. He should see a doctor, urgently. LOL

These people only want to make money from the success of Tesla Motors, they just want a piece of the pie. These people smell money and they run around like hungry wolves. These people should mind their own business and they should stay away from Tesla Motors.

Don't let these people use Tesla Motors for their own gain. Because this wonderful company can do it on its own.

Advertising will be good. Just to get the people's attention to the name of the brand and the high quality of the product.

Therefore, I agree with Timo and qwk.

@Benz | JANUARY 31, 2013: I think this is a HORRIBLE idea.

Just flag the post as inappropriate. If allot of people do that, it goes away.

It won't be going away, count on that.

The only thing Tesla Motors need to be successful is good products. They have that already, and their products will get better and better. That is the power of Tesla Motors.

I is a good idea to find a way for the most people to participate in the evolution. Henry Ford was criticized for paying his workers too much and his response is if he did not do this how would they be able to afford his car. A successful affiliate could make a new customer for Tesla. Affiliate marketing let's even a 1 person marketing company promote something they are passionate about. This might be the only way a small guy can participate in this amazing revolution. Affiliates are paid on performance unlike paying for much advertising where they are paid whether there are results or not. Much of the advertising vehicles if being as proactive as an affiliate would have brought this amazing technology to fruition much sooner. Now that it is here. Let as many people participate as possible. Everyone needs a way to make an honest living.

@ Alex K and Benz. Wow! So you just want to have the threads that you do not agree with deleted? Hmm, nice, very "open minded of you". Maybe we should also get rid of the first ammendment while we are at it! Yeez this is a forum, a place to expess ideas (all kinds). I guess you never heard of free market either? This is an American company, not a Company from socialist Europe. If it is a viable business idea that will increase the profit of TM I'm sure it will be implemented, if not, it will just be ignored.

I think that the more people know about Tesla and the more ways to reach out to people the better MHO.

@frmercado | APRIL 2, 2013: @ Alex K and Benz. Wow! So you just want to have the threads that you do not agree with deleted?

I didn't say anything about disagreeing with this thread. I just pointed out what someone could do if they wanted to vote on deleting the thread.

It's a horrible idea. Why would Tesla pay someone else a commission for nothing, when it would only complicate the customer service and other aspects?

Also I forgot to say: is it that some people really don't understand the concept of "direct", or are they just jealous and looking for a way in for free? Luckily Tesla have competent management and will never fall for such lame gimmicks.

The credibility of every owner would crash if they got commissions. The resposes would switch from, "Wow, tell me more" to "Yeah, yeah; you just want a slice of my money."

I believe Tesla is unlike any other car company and so it would be fitting for them to promote themselves in nontraditional ways. Affiliate marketing could be one of these ways, however I'm not sure Tesla would pay out per every car sold...but they could pay per lead. Even though Tesla has an amazing product that could (and does) sell itself, I still to this day run into people who haven't heard of the Model S. Good affiliates will be current or future Tesla car owners who are passionate about Tesla Motors and will promote the company with the best of intentions. After all, people don't buy what you do they buy why you do it. Elon, get an affiliate program and I'll help spread the word...because I believe in Tesla.

Not needed. Owners can't help selling, they're so psyched. Sometimes people push others to buy what they've bought to validate and justify their decision, but in the MS' case, it's real pride and pleasure that drives the promotion!
