Looks like my old friend Jerry Baker has some competition for your gardening dollar from this equally folksy-looking entrepreneur. Since accidentally discovering a home brew for greening up those yellow spots in the lawn, he’s concocted recipes for durn near everything. And now for $49.95 (or the bargain price of $29.95 if you act before 9/18) he’ll send you his ebook, in which he reveals his secret recipe for killing insects ONCE AND FOR ALL. (Permanency is key.)
His website presents this hard-to-refute argument for buying the book.
In order to get all the recipes found in this
ebook "Forceful Insecticides & Fertilizers: Homemade
Recipes" you would probably have to do as John Perez did.
Study chemistry, meet the best exterminators, read dozens of books,
talk with experts for hours. And most of all, you would have had to create recipes, analyze their
results and draw conclusions. Now,
the best recipes and techniques… can be found in this condensed,
practical, complete and immediately exploitable work.
Yeah, think of the tedious research we’d all have to do, since NOBODY in academia or industry has ever done any.
The benefits of using his recipes are obvious. If you buy this ebook and you’re a professional exterminator, "You’ll be obtaining a major, systemic career edge." And if you’re a professional gardener, "You’ll reduce in your insecticide and fertilizer costs. Your pocket will of course feel the change." [Bolding and punctuation in the original.]
And here’s a quote for Amy and all her worm-loving readers: "Treat your lawn with a deworming concoction. (learn how and why you must do it once a year) [Yeah, that’s all in the original.]
My favorite quote from the site? "3 Reasons to Believe What John and I say: Reason one: Maybe you’ve seen John on television."
Take-home message? If these guys can sell ebooks about gardening, maybe there’s a market for people who aren’t QUACKS. (Sorry, he’s got me bolding and ALL-CAPPING and now I can’t STOP.) Ya sure can’t argue with the economic model of getting 30 bucks for sending an email. And if you’ve ever been interviewed on local cable (and I have!) you, too, can use the guaranteed credibility-inducing "As Seen on TV."
