Name: Will Cheng
Date Started at Circus: August 2013
What first made you want to pursue a career in PPC?
I sort of fell into PPC actually. Luck happened to put me in the right place at the right time where I was given an opportunity to work with Google when they wanted to expand support to UK businesses with their AdWords campaigns.
Fast forward 15 years later and here I am working within a PPC specialist agency still helping businesses grow. I genuinely love it.
What’s your favourite thing about working at Circus?
Without a doubt, it’s the people & culture. There is nothing more uplifting than working with a passionate team who are up for overcoming challenges.
We help each other grow & seeing everybody’s development journey is especially rewarding & an honour to be part of.
Who is your dream client?
I don’t really have a dream client. But rather any client who has a dream. Too cheesy?
Any clients with a vision, ambition & the courage to want to grow. I find this type of client inspiring to work with because it’s the challenge of moving from A to B that is exciting.
If you could solve one PPC issue forever, what would it be?
Measurement & attribution. We need accurate data to work with to help guide our decision making. If the tracking is setup correctly then everything else is so much easier.
What’s your dream holiday destination?
I much prefer a winter holiday to a summer holiday so having the wind on my face as I snowboard down the Canadian mountains. Then warm up in front of the log fire afterwards with some poutine (chips & gravy).
What would your desert island meal be?
Pizza solves most problems in life.
Tell us something about you that might surprise people.
I do a Duolingo lesson every day and my current streak is 2836 days. Doesn’t mean I’m fluent though unfortunately. I can read and understand most basic Spanish & started Ukrainian earlier this year.
If you could guest star on a TV show, which one would it be and why?
My favourite show is probably Parks & Recreation so there I would be, on the campaign trail with Leslie Knope, trying to make a small difference to a small part of the world.
Home or Office?
Office – being around the team is what drives me. I find there are many distractions when working from home. I’m always making toast or doing laundry.
Morning or Evening?
Morning – I’m not always a morning person but it is my favourite time of the day where I am most productive & with the whole day ahead of me.
Dog or Cat?
Cat – independent & graceful.
Countryside or City?
City – I was raised in Glasgow so used to concrete rather than mud.
Spender or Saver?
Saver – I tend to only take calculated risks so I save unless I can really justify spending.
Coffee or Tea?
Coffee – I do like coffee culture. Must’ve watched a lot of Friends in the 90’s.
Summer or Winter?
Winter – that fresh crisp air on a sunny winter’s day!
