Junior PPC Executives are a vital element here at Mabo & we could not provide our service to clients without them. Four days a week are spent at Mabo and one day a week is spent at college carrying out coursework in order to achieve their Level 3 digital marketing apprenticeship. This afternoon we caught up with the lovely Megan Tipper to find out what she gets up to in her spare time!!
1. Describe your role as Junior PPC Executive.
My role as a Junior PPC Executive here at Mabo is to assist the PPC Account Managers with the day-to-day tasks of running their client’s successful Google Ads accounts. This consists of me undergoing bid changes, creating ads, testing, and other traffic management. I also juggle my time with college work making sure I’m keeping on track and following my set goals of completing my Level 3 digital marketing apprenticeship
2. Talk us through your typical working from home during the Coronavirus.
Within the first couple of weeks working from home, I pretty much took up the full dining room table so we thought it would be best to build a desk from pallet wood and an old school table we found, with no one knowing how likely this pandemic, will be going on for.
I head to the desk just before we start work so I can check through my emails to make sure I’m not missing out on any important updates, information, news, etc.
At 8:30 am I then join our morning team call where we discuss any client situations, what our workload is, and to prep us for the busy day ahead. After that I begin to work my way through my list of tasks in Todoist, taking me up to about 12:30 pm where I like to go for a walk around the bottom of the hills, depending on the weather, or do some home workouts to keep me active.
Once my lunch break is up, I head back to my desk for the rest of the afternoon, where I carry on completing tasks that account managers have set me and try to fit in some of my college work as well.
3. What do you think the best thing about working at Mabo is?
Everyone who works at Mabo is so friendly and passionate about their job role making it a really nice environment to work in. Not only that, but they are also always prepared to lend a helping hand which is great with me still picking up new skills daily.
4. Your role is definitely not an easy one, having to juggle coursework & work. What would you say is the most challenging element for you?
I find the most challenging element is fitting in revision. Completing my case studies for assessments and working in this pandemic from home. Each day is different from many contrasting tasks and accounts, however I do like to be kept busy.
5. If you could give one piece of advice for someone who is looking for a role in PPC what would it be?
If the opportunity is available, go for it. I would always recommend PPC as it’s an ever-growing industry with interesting challenges that keep you on your toes.
6. What was your first job?
I started a summer job at a local ice cream shop which then became my weekend job when starting at Mabo.
7. What book are you reading at the minute?
A Secret Garden by Katie Fforde
8. What is your favorite quote?
“Live every day as if it’s your last.”
9. Name the top 3 things on your bucket list.
- Travel around the world
- Swim with dolphins
- Live on a ranch
(not sure if these are realistic but I have high hopes aha!)
10. What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Learn from your mistakes, not everyone is perfect.
11. If you could see one band in person, who would they be?
It’s got to be ABBA.
12. Name your favorite movie.
13. What did you want to be when you were little?
I went through many phases but I think the one that stuck with me for a while was to be an air stewardess until I realised I couldn’t put up with the smell of the meals on the plane forever.
14. What do you like to do for fun?
I love jetting off to hot countries, hoping I can get away next year but for now it’s sitting in the back garden making the most of the sunny weather we have here! Other than that I enjoy going to the gym, shopping, meeting my friends & going to concerts/festivals which again I will have to make up for next year.
