    Tesla Motors Club, Advertising policy

    Last updated: October 2013.


    Tesla Motors Club is keen to support its operations through positive promotions, sponsorships and advertisements on its web properties. We are looking for environmentally conscious partners who may be able to take advantage of the broad and broadening reach of our forums, blogs and products.

    Our readers are mostly comprised of tech-savvy, confident, well educated individuals that enjoy products that are well designed, thoughtfully and respectfully to the environment. A large portion of our members have already purchased one or more products from Tesla Motors.

    We are keen to find partners with complementary products and services that our readers will both enjoy and aspire to own. At the same time, we wish to discourage content that our readers would find either uninteresting or even offensive.

    General restrictions

    Advertising in the public forums (including auctions, sales, fundraising efforts, promoting your business, linking to external sites with which you are affiliated, etc.) is prohibited. Transgression may result in a temporary or permanent ban at the sole discretion of Tesla Motors Club LLC.

    Private individuals

    Private individuals (i.e. non trade related or affiliated) who have individual items to sell may post private ads in our Marketplace section, subject to restrictions posted in those sections.

    You may not reference items for sale in your signature or other areas outside the appropriate Marketplace section.

    Trade or company affiliated persons

    Trade sponsored or supported persons or businesses or those directly connected with any business activity relating to the product in question may not:

    • Post ads in any section of the site
    • Include references to business in their signature, avatar, username or user profile
    • Include direct links to your business in posts
    • Solicit other members for trade or barter via PM or otherwise
    without prior approval from Tesla Motors Club.

    Who can advertise

    Tesla Motors Club is looking to partner with businesses that promote products and/or services that are relevant to our members.

    To become a partner or sponsor of Tesla Motors Club, please complete this form which asks for contact info, a description of your company and the product and/or service you wish to promote, along with an example or sample of the means that you would like to promote your product or service.

    Currently, we consider:

    • Banner ads (various sizes, locations and share-of-voice)
    • Sponsored posts in the Sponsors forum.
    • Sponsored ‘For Sale’ items

    Upon receipt of requests, TMC’s administrators (not moderators) will decide upon what forms of promotion are acceptable and a working relationship will be defined.
