Greetings! Hope this email finds you well.
Here at Grubterra, we raise black soldier fly larvae for chicken/poultry owners. They are extremely healthy for poultry and are packed with protein, healthy fats, and calcium.
We would love to set up a collaboration. I can send you a custom discount code for 100% off one of our 5lb bags of dried black soldier fly larvae. In exchange for a review video.
If this is something you would be interested in, please let me know, and we can hash out the details!”
I am starting to think I should have started a blog on luxury cars. Or guitars. Or nice cameras.
No, instead companies try to offer me bags of dried maggots in return for a video.
There is negative temptation to take an offer like this. Why would I bother getting my camera out to film a review video that will pay a whopping 5lb bag of BSF larvae? That is a terrible return. It’s insulting. And ridiculous.
“Hi, I’m David The Good and I want to tell you about this exciting treat for your chickens!”
At least offer me something cool, like a chipper/shredder. Or a Taylor guitar. Heck, I might even switch to Martin if they sent me a free model.
But I ain’t doin’ no 5lb bag o’ dried grub videos! I got pride in my work!! I’m a contender, man!
You can take your desiccated maggots and go home.
