Dear Tayo,

First of all, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family…‬

‬Hope I was not too late for your year end promo, as I was fully engaged with my work as I’m planning to take vacation to Philippines by next week. :)‬

‬‪I’ve read your email and can’t resist the offer. As such, please find attached the receipt of the items I purchased from Lulu.com as mentioned in your email below.‬

‬Hope to receive your Ration Formulator along with your freebies at the earliest so I can start familiarizing myself with the program while I’m on vacation. This will be of great help in expending my piggery business.‬

Once again, Happy new year!!!‬

Many Thanks!!!‬

‬‪Best Regards,‬

This is the email he sent me width=

Hi Nelson,

Like I said, I wanted to find out if you’d be taking up any of my year end promo offers.

But I realized that since you are into hog farming, the offer of my Poultry Farm Manager may not be so useful to you.

So, instead I’ve come up with something different for you as follows:

If you can purchase the following paperback books from my online store and have them shipped to my brother in law’s address below:

Segun Ogunlana

United KingdomIf you take up this offer, you get to pay only N10,192.8, instead of N12,500.Once the books are received in London, I will send you a FREE copy of my Ration Formulator fully personalized for you, along with FREE copies of my 4 part Ebook series on Best Practice Farm Business Management (see http://www.lulu.com/shop/tayo-solagbade/farm-business-best-practice-management-10-articles-and-stories-for-farm-business-owners/ebook/product-21867121.html)Plus, I will send you a FREE PDF copy of an Agribusiness research paper I was paid 2,500 Euros to write, by a Holland based NGO last December (2013). It was about the rate of adoption/use of my Ration Formulator, by Farm CEOs.The items I need you to purchase and ship to my brother in law’s in London are:A. My new Speaking IDEAS book (paperback version NOT Ebook)

Price is $12 USD

See it on sale at:

Number of copies to buy: 1 copy

B. My new Kukuru Danger book (paperback version NOT Ebook)


Number of copies to buy: 3 copies

C. The Lulu.com SHIPPING/HANDLING fee for delivery of the books…

From checking at my end using the shopping cart with the intended shipping address inputted, it will be about $13 USD (The actual value shown in the checkout interface was under $13 USD)

In summary, I have worked out the total amount that A, B and C above will come to, as follows:

A. 1 copy @ $12 USD  = $12 USD

B. 3 copies @ $9.60 USD each = $ 28.8 USD

C. Shipping and handling  = $14 USD (worst case estimate)

Likely total cost will be  $54.8 USD on the whole.

I have converted that into Nigerian Naira using an exchange rate of N186 to $1 USD (which is to your advantage, because it is currently at about N185 or less to a dollar)

That brings the $54.8 USD to N10,192.8, which is LESS than the N12,500.0 price for the Ration Formulator.

So, you get to save N2,307 (18%), and also get my other bonus gifts.

Plus, this removes the problem of sending money to me to pay for the software!

If you’re interested in taking this offer up, do let me know.
In your service,

PS: In case you’re curious, I’ve put excerpts below from the offer I made to other Farm CEOs with Poultry ventures…


I offer to help you develop and implement a Web Marketing System to cost-effectively boost your company’s branding/marketing efforts…

You probably read the preview in Monday’s newsletter.

This is the invoice he sent me width=

Wouldn’t it be great if you could use the above strategy to boost local and international sales of your products and services?

Think about it carefully, and you’ll see that I end up literally eating my cake and having it by operating this way.

It might also interest you to know that Nelson had earlier (on 1st Dec 2014) purchased my PDF feed formulation handbook, for $82 US Dollars from the same online store at www.lulu.com/sdaproducts

In otherwords, this was his second purchase in 4 weeks, which you will agree indicates he was satisfied with what he got the first time!

On Monday 5th January 2015, in the first issue of my weekly newsletter for the new year, I will explain in detail, why every business owner that adopts this strategy that I used with Nelson, will end up making more money and profits in the long run.

Here’s wishing you happy holidays and a prosperous 2015!

Stay tuned!
