Our Humans of 3Q series continues this week with Anthony Vultaggio, Account Coordinator, out of our Vermont office! Get to know Anthony below:
Explain your role at 3Q in 3 sentences or fewer:
I make that money move! (Into the channels that will achieve our clients goals at the most efficient rate.) I work as both a main point of contact to the client and also handle back-end reporting, optimizations, and strategy recommendations.
What sets 3Q apart from other agencies in the industry?
3Q has a ton going for it as an agency. From a service perspective, there never seems to be a slowdown of initiatives to support new innovative techniques and technology. This helps to ensure we are providing each client with the best data-driven support we possibly can. From an employee perspective, 3Q culture is something that is explained to you on day 1. Every agency out there likes to talk about their culture mission and how they work to support an enjoyable working environment. The difference is that 3Q really puts a focus on it and genuinely understands that happy campers make the best fires.
Tell us about your morale associate (pet: if you have one).
His name is Kylo. Half Italian Mastiff, half not sure. He looks like a super-cute black lab and is just the best damn dog ever. He LOVES sticks and garlic & butter croutons.
What’s one marketing lesson you wished you had learned earlier?
This is less a marketing lesson, but one that is incredibly important to me to remember as I expand my knowledge base at 3Q: “The more you know, the less you know.”
When coworkers from other offices come to visit, what’s one thing they absolutely have to do in your city?
Go to this coffee/dinner/pastry shop Monarch and the Milkweed. After you go out to dinner, stop here and get a cappuccino and an eclair. A bit pricey but well worth it. Burlington also has an amazing music and art scene. There are some Facebook pages that post about events and shows; check those out.
What’s something that makes your office cooler than the other 3Q offices?
Well we have really good A/C. I’m not sure what the other offices thermostat is set to, but I bet ours is cooler. We also have a pretty small office, which makes it really easy to get to know everyone and stay close throughout the days.
What’s been the coolest thing you’ve done with your unlimited PTO?
I was able to take off for a bunch of days around last Christmas, which I know is kind of a lame answer, but it’s a special time for my huge Italian family. All my siblings are older than me as well and live elsewhere, so I needed a few days to see everyone.
What 3Q initiative outside of your job description are you most proud of being a part of?
3Q3% is pretty cool.
Have you participated in 3Q3%? If so, what’s been your favorite experience?
The only one I have participated in was clothing/supply donations. We found a shelter to take them and they were very thankful when we gave them a full officeload of clothes.
How do you spend your free time?
Friends are very important to me, and I’m thankful to have a pretty solid group of six I spend my time with. We usually are out skateboarding/snowboarding, at concerts and art shows, along with just kickin’ it. I’ve been trying to get into learning stained glass recently, but it’s pretty tough.
What do you think has been the most interesting change in the marketing industry or in your channel this year?
I’m really excited for the push towards automation. Not to say that it works for every situation, but there are many use cases where it could be killer.
If you were given an unlimited amount of money to invest into on upcoming or exciting marketing technology, what would it be?
If you could choose any TV show or movie world to live in, what would it be?
Rick and Morty, but only if I was Rick.
What’s your favorite TED talk?
There is this really good one on nonverbal communication which is really relevant to me; he’s this Italian who throws his hands all over the place when he talks.
What’s your favorite GIF?
Hmm…can’t think of a GIF, but my favorite meme format is the Gamecube intro video.
