New MyNissanLEAF members in correlation to Leaf Sales?

Tue Apr 02, 2013 12:24 pm

I was just curious if the number of new members to this forum has any correlation to the number of Leaf's sold in March. Just bored...

I have wondered the same. We've seen an unusual number of "I got my leaf yesterday" type posts this last month and it is definitely reflected in the sales figures.

Then there are people like me that have been on this forum for 2+years and have finally gotten a leaf. I had originally reserved one back in 2010, but by the time they were available in my state of Minnesota in 2012 I decided I would wait for the MY13. Very glad I did as it is a better car and significant cheaper.

It is probably hard to say how many of the 2000+ leafs sold last month went to people like me...but I am sure there are a few.

Hey Matimal, are you the first in NoDak to get a leaf as far as you know? Just curious.

About 320 new members over the past 30 days. In the months prior to that, about 200 to 250 new members would join the forum every 30 days.

I am number two, my buddy down the street is number one (three days apart). I have to take credit for him buying his though, after I showed him the numbers just made sense to him. We where working on a package deal for the two on the lot but the dealer said the black one (I wanted black) was gone in a dealer trade. I let my friend take the white one. They called me a couple of days later and said the dealer trade fell through. I told them I was looking at another one at another dealer and they instantly go very aggressive on the price :).

I am trying to get more converts, but the winter driving is an issue if you live more then 20 miles out.

I have also noticed a spike in my youtube video. I made this video about 2 years ago when I first got my Leaf. It has typically had about 10 views per day. This last month it has had over 60 views per day. It is very obvious when looking at the analytics that the traffic to this video jumped about 30 days ago. I suspect it coincides with the advertising campaign for the Leaf.
