Take some time to get to know Kristen Mingus, Associate Marketing Manager at 3Q Digital from our San Mateo office. (Editor’s note: Kristen recently won a quarterly award for the Harte Hanks ‘A Promise We Live’ program; she is 3Q Digital’s first winner.)

What is your favorite advertising campaign?

Pretty much every Geico advertisement: Hump Day, the email I received in February with the Gecko singing “Baby Come Back”, the Unskippable ad, etc….

What’s one marketing lesson you wished you had learned earlier? 

Expect 50% of RSVPs to actually show up to the event.

What one quality do you think is most important in successful digital marketers today?

Stay relevant!  Always stay up to date on customer needs and industry trends.

What is your favorite thing to brag about at 3Q?

WFH policy and unlimited PTO.

Who is the unsung hero of your team? 

Hands down Hillary Read, she’s amazing!

Which of 3Q’s core values is most important to you, and why? 

Own it!  It’s refreshing to work for a company that does not micro-manage and promotes personal accountability and responsibility.  I work much better in this type of environment. 

If you had to switch offices, which office would you pick and why? 

San Diego!  Who doesn’t love the beach and year-round nice weather?

What is your motivation to come into work every day?

Knowing that what I produce and work hard for is noticed and appreciated.

What has been your favorite perk item/activity? 

Movie tickets; I love the movies!  Mani-Pedis with my co-workers are a close second.

Would you rather fight 100 duck sized horses, or one horse sized duck?

I secretly want a mini horse so I guess 100 duck-sized horses.  I feel like the fight would turn into me starting a mini-horse ranch.

Hot dogs or hamburgers? 

Italian Sausage!

What is on your bucket list? 

Be on a dance team, karaoke a rap song, start a company, and adopt a child.

What’s your favorite thing on your desk? 

Currently a mini football “Save the date” mailer from the first 3Q Summit; it reminds me how drive, determination, and hard work does pay off.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?

Hang out with my family!
