“The Mississippi Delta was shining like a National guitar.

Before Labor Day, I spent the better part of a week traveling down South with my seven-year-old daughter. We masked up, flew into Memphis, and drove through Arkansas after a quick Mississippi detour.

While I was slow to respond to emails during that stretch, and I may still owe you a response yet, I couldn’t avoid seeing marketing lessons everywhere we went.

Here are a few that stood out like, well, like a pyramid rising up on the banks of the Mississippi River.

Sell Your Origin Story

When I was scouting hotels in Memphis, TN, there was one that stood apart. Big Cypress Lodge is housed in the Memphis Pyramid, a 321-foot-tall bronze shell glazed with glass that used to have a sports arena. There are no windows to the outside; all the rooms look inward to view the Bass Pro Shops sprawling store replete with restaurants, a bowling alley, fish ponds, and an alligator tank. Inside the central pillar, you can find the tallest freestanding elevator in the United States.

By some measures, it’s the tenth-largest pyramid in the world, and it may well be the ugliest on the outside. But there is no question that unless Elvis’s survivors invite you to spend a night in the Graceland Mansion (good luck with that), Big Cypress is one of the most original places you can stay anywhere.

It also has one of the best stories I’ve heard about any place I’ve stayed. As told on their website (and in countless spots around the pyramid), it goes like this:

“In 2005, [Bass Pro Shops CEO] Johnny Morris went fishing on the Mississippi River. He set out with a couple of his fishing buddies… When they got near the Memphis Pyramid, Johnny looked up and told them that he would build a store inside if they caught a 30-pound catfish.

“Sure enough, with only about an hour left in the trip, his buddy, Jack, got a bite and reeled in a monster catfish in the shadow of the Pyramid. Without much hesitation, Johnny said, ‘It’s a deal, we’re gonna do it.'”

If I was with you grabbing drinks, I could have told you a version of that story without the notes, though they tell it better. It’s a hell of a fish tale, but it’s true.

There’s power to an origin story that grows over time if harnessed. Did I ever tell you about the time that W2O CMO Aaron Strout wrote a blog post about me for HubSpot entitled, “Serial Marketer, Not Killer”? I probably have. When you’ve got a story like that, don’t let it go to waste.

Put yourself on the map

Leland, Mississippi’s population is below 4,000 and falling.

Its best-known resident these days doesn’t say that much, and he looks a little green.

He sits on his couch, in a room surrounded by memorabilia spanning his life and the years before he was born, wearing a custom-made mask stretched across his oversized mouth; he doesn’t even have visible ears to anchor the hooks.

He spends his day waiting for someone to stop by, sit down on either side of him, and pose for a photo.

No matter much Leland’s population declines, people will come – some from all over the world – to meet him. He has a first name more famous than Oprah’s and a personality more lovable than Mickey’s.

He’s none other than Kermit the Frog, and this one-room museum adjacent to a smaller gift shop commemorates the birthplace of Jim Henson, renowned as one of the most creative and good-natured souls who has graced our planet. The ripple effects of his creativity will endure quite possibly forever.

I’d have loved to explore more of Mississippi, and I hope to another time, but this was our one planned destination for the trip. This speck of a town near the river led me to drive five hours out of the way, and I felt brightened by Henson’s aura as soon as I arrived.

Just think how many people have graced Leland’s doorstep over the years thanks to the one-room tribute. Henson never forgot where he came from, but he hadn’t lived there since age 12. You never want to forget where you came from, sure. But places should never forget who came from them there.

Live your brand

I made a friend in Memphis, and I don’t think she’ll mind me calling her that after a couple of brief interactions. We may not exchange holiday cards, but I’m so glad to have met Tamika Heard, the owner of Butteriffic Bakery & Café.

She’s a force, and she is living her brand. Ask her if she’s for real, and she’ll say, “You butter believe it!” Before you leave, she’ll wish you a “Butteriffic day.” She means it. She loves butter. And she loves putting a smile on people’s faces.

She does this not just through her personality but through her baking. Her butter cookies may well change what you think a cookie can and should be, and she even sells them online to ship nationwide. I asked if she’s on Goldbelly, and she said she has spent years trying to get on there – let me know if you know anyone.

I found Butteriffic thanks to Google Maps, where I’m a Level 8 local guide who has made 2,478 contributions and earned 15,107 points. In case you’re wondering, that is not easy. It makes TripAdvisor badges look like nursery school participation trophies, and I don’t care how cute your kid is – there are no trophies for finger painting!

Google Maps steered me right (almost literally) again, and the five-star review for Tamika was my favorite to write during the trip. Bonus points to her for recommending two Memphis barbecue joints: One & Only, where I had the best brisket and smokiest wings I’ve ever eaten, and Central BBQ, home to what may well be the best banana pudding ever (sorry, Charlotte, NC – but you were where I had my first best banana pudding, so I’ll never forget you).

Delight with gimmicks; surprise with quality

In the early stages of planning the trip, when I thought we might pass through Little Rock, I didn’t see a ton in the city that I needed to do with my daughter. I did, however, stumble on All Aboard Restaurant & Grill, a theme restaurant where trains deliver your order to the table via overhead tracks that connect to sensor-equipped trays to collect the food baskets.

We had one night in Little Rock, and I’m sure Arkansans can come up with 100 supposedly better dinner options, but I knew this was where I wanted to take my kid. She loved the gimmick.

What I didn’t expect was how much I’d love the food. I ordered way too much, sampling their fish and chips, chicken fingers, hush puppies, and whatever else the Little Engine That Could could carry. It was all about the best damn version of that dish I ever had.

Without the gimmick, I wouldn’t have been in a rush to go there. You know how many places I can find chicken fingers or fish and chips? The trains traveling around overhead put the restaurant over the top.

If I wind up in Little Rock again, I’d go back. I’d even bring adults there on a business trip – come for the absurdly childish choice where you can wear paper conductor hats, stay for the absurdly good friend food.

If you go, save room for dessert nearby. Just about everywhere I go, I search Google Maps for dessert spots. While sitting at All Aboard, I discovered Le Pops just a three-minute drive away, and we rushed over there before it closed. Just look at their homepage and tell me you wouldn’t eat a dozen of ‘em.
.
I’m not praying for much during the High Holidays – just for the end of the pandemic, peace on Earth, and franchises of Butteriffic, Central BBQ, and Le Pops opening up in Manhattan.

Is that too much to ask for?
