Discounting your product sucks but sometimes it’s the nudge people need to fall in love with your product or decide they hate it once and for all.

We’ve been doing Mantry for 10 years. 10 years in startup land is like 50 in the real world. We’ve come full circle on discounting, all the way from “that will completely f*ck the brand image” to “give people a reason to try your stuff”.

1. Here’s a Hard Hitting Truth

Your product that you think is the best thing ever is completely irrelevant to someone who does not experience it.

2. Here’s the Solution.

Offer a HUGE discount (for the record, nobody really cares about 10%, 20%, 30% ect. , the GAP inundates people’s inboxes all day with that jazz).

3. Here’s EXACTLY What Worked For Us.

Sweat Heat Pecans // Molly & Me Pecans // Holy Hill, SC

Another sports-night staple we can’t live without is the humbly habit-forming beer nut. A cinch to serve and impossible to resist — your coffee table’s downright naked without a heaping bowl. In the grand tradition of southern cooking, wherein sugar and spice make everything nicer, these pecans, plucked from a 150-acre farm outside of Charleston, get a dusting of crunchy cinnamon sugar with an afterburner boost of chile pepper heat. No need to fear — the flavor’s balanced and subtle — just keep the beer glass close at hand.

Traditional Pork Jerky // Cousins Smokehouse // Broussard, LA

Cousins lays claim to one of our favorite maker slogans ever “Easy to Chew, Tough to Quit!” and hails from maybe the best place to eat in America aka. Louisiana. From crawfish to boudin, cajun country cranks out perfectly seasoned meals and it’s no surprise this Pork Jerky is on point. Slow smoked with just enough spice, wash it down with an Albita and whisper a “Who Dat” under your breath.

Korean BBQ Bacon Jerky // Mission Meats // Decorah, IA

Bacon + Jerky is a match made in heaven but throw in a great mission (hence the name) and you have a special product.

Via Mission Meats:

We love the salty, sweet combo of the Korean BBQ flavor. Kudos to Mission meats for thinking outside the bacon box.
