Elon Reeve Musk, a well-known businessman, engineer, and CEO of Tesla Inc., is also an active Twitter user. In fact, his Twitter account has been Tesla's mouthpiece to inform the public about the electric automaker's upcoming products, plans, and important announcements. On Wednesday, in response to a letter written by a 10-year-old, Elon Musk made another statement on the social media platform telling that the firm will hold a contest for homemade advertisements.
A 10-Year-Old Gives Tesla Marketing Advice Through Letter
Bria, a 10-year-old daughter Twitter user Steven, suggested that Musk should consider running a competition to find the best homemade commercial for Tesla. The winner of the contest, Bria said, should have their advertisement aired on the television and receive something for free, it maybe a year of Supercharging or maybe a Model 3 Easter Egg. Aside from the suggested marketing tactic, the fifth-grader from Michigan also praised Tesla saying that the firm's cars are "the best thing I’ve ever seen."
According to MercuryNews, Musk has hinted that Tesla Inc. may have to promote the company as it spreads into new products. The CEO even brags that Tesla has so far spent nothing on advertising and only social media can take the company now. That is why some Tesla fans have posted videos of their electric cars. Some are even producing ads in computer-generated images.
Tesla Will Do Bria's Suggestion
"Thank you for the lovely letter. That sounds like a great idea. We'll do it!," tweeted Musk as a reply to Bria's letter. As reported by NDTV, Bria aspires to be a politician and that she hoped to drive any of the Tesla cars in the future. Aside from the good facts, she also expressed her disappointment over Tesla vehicles because it is not being sold in Michigan. Steven, the father who shared the letter, is a professor at Art Institute of Michigan and works as a journalist in a car website, according to his Twitter account.
