Get to know Conor McElhaney, Account Manager at 3Q Digital, working out of our New York City office.
What’s the first metric you check when you start the day?
Cost and CPL: how much did we spend and how many leads did we receive? Comparing that to the day before, week-to-date compared to the same the previous week, and different variations of that will let you find insights in how your account is trending.
What one quality do you think is most important in successful digital marketers today?
The ability to learn fast and apply that learning effectively for your accounts.
What is your favorite thing to brag about at 3Q?
The ability to work from home and having unlimited PTO benefits are great!
Care to share your favorite spot to work from home?
Working in my backyard in the San Diego sun.
If you had to switch offices, which office would you pick and why?
I’m in the process of moving to our New York office. I’ve worked out of our San Francisco, San Mateo, and San Diego offices intermittently throughout my tenure at 3Q.
I’m moving out east for a few reasons – from being on the west coast my whole life, to wanting to move to one of the biggest cities in the world, to wanting to make an impact on the newest office at 3Q (our NY office officially opened in February). No single reason is really make or break, but I’m incredibly excited for such a unique opportunity to go coast to coast with such a great agency.
What trips have you gone on/do you plan to go on with your unlimited PTO?
Hoping to travel to Iceland with friends this summer, or go back and spend some time in Japan. I’m also planning on taking a week of PTO to explore NYC and get acclimated to the city before diving back into work.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
I like to rock climb, hike, go to the beach, and go to concerts.
Who is the unsung hero of your team?
My director, Bob Sturges – working from Denmark (like he will be for the remainder of the year) has got to be challenging. He regularly works until about midnight-1 a.m. so that he can be there to help out the rest of our team. Can’t imagine there are a lot of directors out there who would go out of their way to make such a situation work while still being extremely effective at their job.
