Volkswagen gets a free Passat TDI advertisement via Tweet

Posted By on January 12, 2012

There’s must be an easy way for social media users to capitalize on advertising products or companies using social media CNBC_richc_tweet120111 …hmm?

For example, yesterday morning I passively plugged a product by recommending the Volkswagen Passat TDI to Andrew Ross Sorkin, one of the CNBC Squawkbox anchors and NYTimes columnist.  He is looking for a safe car that will fit his two young boys “for weekend trips out of the city.” His politics are a bit “greener” than the other anchors so I figured the larger, and safe but still fuel efficient Passat would be a great choice.

  • Thanks for the email Lee … but I’m not going to change the word “free” in front of Passat even though it sounds misleading. Do let me know if you get a “free Passat TDI” but I doubt it. 🙂
