Of interest in regards to Tesla is Musk mentioning that Tesla Motors has never paid to advertise, which he says is directly related to advertising not being tied in any way to improving the product. According to Musk, all efforts should be focused on improvement of the product, not on wasting money for something such as advertising which has no beneficial, tangible impact on the consumer who buys the product.
