There's nothing to lose, because Edmond Rätzel's initial consultations cost you nothing.
I regret not finding Edmond sooner.
For years I have seen his ads over and over again and did not dare.
If I had known how easy customer acquisition can be, how fast and effective the support from Edmond and his team is, I would have booked much earlier.
I didn't just get a strategy thrown in front of my feet, but a real plan that was customized to me personally together with Edmond. I get answers to my questions within minutes. Not just a short answer, but in the form of a voice message or even a detailed video recording.
Thanks to the collaboration, I have found joy in my photography business again, and it is finally profitable.
In the first month I made a turnover of almost 18K just from the program, and I didn't expect that.
There is no more running after the money. I'm increasingly gaining the dream clients I've wanted, gratefully and with appreciation.
Customers come almost at the push of a button - of course, only if you work together on all the issues and get into the implementation yourself. My absolute recommendation.
Best regards Viktoria
I became aware of Edmond through the many posts and videos on Instagram and YouTube. Of course, one questions, what's in it, can it really all work like that?
Through a private drastic event I had to react professionally and quickly realized that I needed help. I turned to Edmond Rätzel.
Now I have been a client of Edmond Rätzel for 4 months and it has been totally worth it.
Even though I'm still far from where I want to be, the first lessons and help I received have completely changed the way I think about marketing.
Away from old paths, discovering new things and putting them into action.
You have to move in your head, not always easy but it works.
Just by changing small things you positively influence your business and if things don't go as planned, Edmond is available to help solve the problem.
I can unreservedly recommend Edmond Rätzel and look forward to continuing our journey together.
I have been working with Edmond and his team since the beginning of March 2023 and I don't regret a single second. I'm not there yet, but just the fact of having a partner at my side who can help in any situation is worth every euro!
By working with Edmond and his team, everything goes much faster because many mistakes are avoided. You really never stop learning and I'm learning a lot of new things that I wouldn't have done even though I've been a part-time photographer for a few years.
I had a problem with my Facebook advertising account and Edmond solved this within a short time and one day later, my advertising account was activated again. I myself could not even reach Facebook or got only general bot answers that did not really help me.
The incredibly fast support is just great. No matter what question you have, you can ask it and get an answer with a solution in a very short time.
For all who are serious about a photographic future, Edmond and his team are 100% the right partners.
Thank you Edmond, Anja and team!
best regards from Vienna

I became aware of Edmond through his book. A few months later I decided to work with Edmond and his team.
I've been a part-time wedding photographer for over 5 years now, but only got my assignments through referrals because I honestly had no idea how to make myself visible in the world of the internet. Place an advertisement - ME?? No way!
I first booked the 8-week coaching with Edmond - and what can I say? It has more than convinced me! You get all-round advice from website and CRM setup to the design and automation of the ads.
There is extremely much input and help no matter what it is about! Edmond goes through everything step by step with you and helps you wherever he can.
Every week there is the opportunity to participate in live calls on marketing and sales - here everyone has the opportunity to ask all the questions they have. In the live calls on the subject of sales, you get very helpful tips and tricks on how to behave in a sales conversation with the customer.
Personally, the topic of sales is always very difficult for me, because at the moment of the conversation I never know exactly what I'm doing right or what I'm doing wrong. Anja took me by the hand here and showed me what is important in customer conversations and what you should focus on.
After the 8 weeks, I extended the coaching directly - without even thinking about it for a minute!
Edmond offers 1 to 1 coaching - i.e. no matter what problem or question you have, you can write to him directly in a personal chat and get various help within a short time. This was very important to me personally, because I was always extremely uncertain about the topic of advertising and thus wanted to have someone at my side who knows what he is doing!
For about 3 weeks I now switch advertising and have already received over 40 requests pure - a dream!
If you finally want to turn your plan into reality and start your own business or just want to have more visibility on the internet in general, then Edmond and his great team is the right place for you! You will get extremely valuable input and many areas.
Absolutely worth recommending!!!
A big thank you to Edmond and Anja for the great collaboration so far and I'm looking forward to what's to come! 😊

I have been working with Edmond for about three months now. In these three months I have learned more than in my last three years. With Edmond, you have a very competent contact person on your side regarding the complete process of getting a job. I was shown how to become visible as a wedding photographer and how to charge profitable prices. The cooperation is definitely worthwhile and I can recommend it to anyone who wants to switch from irregular orders to a planbear business. After the first four weeks of advertising, I have received over 20 inquiries. Edmond is always there to help me with any questions I have. Thank you very much!
I have been a part-time people and wedding photographer for about 15 years. Customer inquiries came so far irregularly, not scalable and 90% only through recommendations. Even books, videos and seminars with well-known mentors did not bring the desired success. This changed abruptly through coaching with Edmond Rätzel. My doubts at the beginning immediately turned into confidence and I had the right gut feeling from the first minute on. Thanks to the structured learning content and the personal, friendly coaching, things went steeply upwards in just a few months, hand in hand. All questions are answered in the shortest possible time in an understandable and extremely professional manner. At the regular Zoom meetings, experience is exchanged, advice is given and problems are dealt with at a very high level. Advanced users and professionals communicate here on the same wavelength and no question remains unanswered. My personal conclusion: Since the coaching with Edmond and Anja I sit almost daily joyfully at the telephone and lead regularly nice customer discussions, which thanks to Edmond are finally structured, plannable and perfectly documented. If you finally want to get off to a successful start, it's best to register with Edmond Rätzel today!
Thank you very much,

I discovered Edmond Rätzel on LinkedIn in March, by which time I had seen several ads from him.
We already had a short conversation there, after which I ordered his book. A few months later, in July, I decided to work with him, although at that time I was still actively involved in another consultancy. There I had the feeling that something was still missing, to be really active and constantly present or I still had problems with customer acquisition.
What I have experienced so far (1-2 month of cooperation):After the first couple of weeks I already knew that I will extend the cooperation with him after the first 2 months. (See below why).
I took the "small package" - probably a little skepticism still played a part - there I implemented everything from the consultation as requested, from the website setup to the CRM setup.
Not regretted a minute (3-4 month of cooperation):
After 2 months I then extended. Finally I started with the ad setup and automation. Shortly after the first ads went live, the first requests came in and so far I have also made several deals. Currently, the number of entries (half of the 4th month) is 4.2 people on average per week.
I mean, can you ask for more?
Thanks to his system and of course him and his team, you learn how to sell, convert and automate, faster and more effectively.
I am sure he has saved me a lot of headaches and many years of experimenting.
There is an opportunity to attend a video call once a week on both marketing and sales, there you can ask questions or even practice different customer situations related to sales. However...
..the best is yet to come, which for me played a huge role in my decision to work with them: The 1-to-1 consultation. In the beginning, of course, I myself "not quite" believed, too good to be true.
It is true. No matter how many and how "stupid" question you ask, the answer always comes and even in a very reasonable time in a separate chat where there are only two of you. (My own experience: I have never waited longer than an hour).
I can say that after 3.5 months, there is a lot to implement, the platform is growing, there is always new knowledge available.
I already had a first coach, now I also have a last one, concerning marketing and sales.
I can only say thank you for the time so far and look forward to the coming.

The materials and documentation are good, but sometimes a bit too long and explained too extensively. Shorter, more efficient and targeted videos would be good. The ads placed via Facebook work well because supposedly tested, especially with wedding photographers. However, it was not clear to me which target group responds to which topics, the definition of some target groups is rather left to chance. But Facebook itself doesn't know that either. Otherwise, I have received a lot of tools that allow me to receive and manage customer inquiries. In any case, the photography business has been given a future for me.

At the beginning we were skeptical - now, at the end of the 12-week coaching, we can say: it was worth it.
Edmond and his team are great coaches for people who are just starting their own business and want an environment of people in the same phase.
The tips and tools you get here help make sales via paid ads and stimulate entrepreneurial thinking.
Thanks for your support and valuable input, especially on process design and sales training. It really got us on track and motivated.
All the best 🍀👍🏼 🙂 .

Like so many of Edmond Rätzel's participants, I stumbled across his book ad, received a call from his collaborator Anja a few months later asking if they should coach me - I declined at first because I simply didn't have the budget as a mother of 2 toddlers and solo self-employed photographer.
Several attempts later, I was able to afford the consultation, only I was in bournout at the time. Edmond has always been considerate of that - and being a time-constrained mom. At the same time, he is able to motivate me to "Do it now!" simply and eays for me via WhatsApp.
In general, communication with him and his team runs smoothly: fast, uncomplicated and always with a positive "We'll get it done". And he's right, in places where I would have given up long ago, where I don't have time to learn the ropes (like Facebook's wide world of algorithms, settings pages, rules, etc.), Edmond is a tireless help: even on a holiday, he got on the customer hotline to help me. And of course, true to his motto, he got it done.
Edmond responds quickly to individual questions. Recently, he developed a suitable sales system for me and a few other customers following queries and made a few instructional videos so that I could tackle the project. Customer contact and service can hardly be better!!!
Being in Edmond Rätzel's coaching is eye-opening for anyone who works in the photography business and wants to get ahead. Especially for me, who felt soooo herself thanks to her training as a photographer, and through the coaching now for the first time ever slowly understands how photographers can actually work economically.
Many thanks to you, Edmond, and your team for your offer and your work!

I am a photographer at heart, but making myself visible or selling myself was totally difficult for me, I just didn't know how. Through Edmond and the coaching I have learned step by step how to drive my marketing and present myself successfully on the market. I can only recommend it to anyone who wants to position their business on the market in a structured and predictable way.
Edmond and his team are highly recommended to ANY photographer & videographer. He is very patient and answers almost 24/7 any questions you have. Up front, his learning content is very understandable and simply laid out so that you can absolutely follow every step and make it work for you.
Everyone who knows the industry has developed their workflow for themselves. With Edmond his way you get a whole different insight again and build your business to the next level. A complete sales structure in online marketing. I myself had absolutely no idea about it before. Minimal processes with partly very big effects. Thanks to the coaching I can now generate significantly more sales than ever before. My business has become predictable. I am glad that he and his team were so committed to bringing me into the team. Due to private circumstances, I put off the whole coaching until I had the necessary motivation to finally get started. Many thanks for that! :)
I am curious to see where the journey will take me. Edmond is not just a coach. He takes time for each client individually and maintains a friendly relationship. This was definitely emphasized at the summer party. All the coaching participants are also absolutely great. They support each other and are in regular contact.
I'm glad to be a part of it all and hope that Edmond can help many more creatives to finally become plannable.
Finally, there is only one thing left for me to say/write:
My name is Michael Rüttger and I have been self-employed for almost 30 years and with my agency Rüttger Mediendesign I have been offering professional video shoots, print and non-print for many years. However, photography has always been my passion and so I decided in early 2022 to expand this area and integrate it into my portfolio. I then got in touch with Edmond Rätzel via Facebook and after some initial skepticism, I decided to take part in his coaching. What should I write? It was a very good decision. Edmond Rätzel works professionally and shows photographers and filmmakers how to really generate leads and subsequently win them as clients even with standardized processes. His way of working is very personal and for me unique, is the speed in which he personally responds to every single question. You really feel in his care and it is not just an advertising promise that he cares about the success of his customers. You can feel it and you experience it when working with him! Within two months I was able to massively expand my photography and generate reach. Absolutely recommendable! I would definitely like to continue working with him!
I am a customer with my company since November 2021 with Edmond Rätzel & am very enthusiastic about him and his team. Our expectations have been more than met. His target groups are not only filmmakers & photographers, but also companies in this industry.... - first of all I must say that Edmond and his agency was our third point of contact. We had previously dealt with two other providers of this kind, which were specialized in advertising / online sales, but not like Edmond, among other things, still on the all-round support and even assistance with telephone sales (initial conversation & consultation, etc).
First how it all started: I myself have been a filmmaker for over 12 years and over the years I have not only been able to win some customers and major clients, but also built up staff. Then in 2020 came the pandemic, which hit us hard. My employees had to go on short-time work, the orders went down the drain. Back then, before Corona, we only lived on recommendation ... which today, in retrospect, was the absolute mistake. In 2020, I hired the first agency that specialized in customer acquisition in the film & photo sector. I was given the first tools to advertise on Linkedin, for example. That helped me, but the income wasn't that huge and just covered the costs I put into the agency. It really didn't do much for me. The next attempt at the end of 2020 also promised me targeted customer acquisition also through advertising. I generated a few leads but hardly anyone really became a customer. I didn't know why at the time, because according to the agency, the leads were there, but whether they would become customers or not would ultimately depend on me. But I was not helped here.
I tried everything to get back on track. Orders came in here and there from time to time, but they didn't even begin to reach the volume of 2019. Finally, there was also a reduction in staff.
At the end of 2021, I thought to myself all good things come in threes and I'd give the cooperation with Edmond Rätzel + Team a try. From the beginning I had a good feeling about the cooperation, because I was not only assured of the necessary tools for lead generation, but also the necessary know-how to turn them into customers. This is exactly what I was missing with the other two agencies. That was exactly the problem: turning leads into new customers. Through Edmond and Anja I learned to conduct sales calls properly (these were always analyzed and corrected). This was the decisive key for us / for me as an entrepreneur for the acquisition of new customers. But what is even more crucial is that through Edmond's method we generated an average of 30- 40 leads per month. Only last month, after 2.5 weeks and about 1,000 € advertising budget, we were able to win orders with a volume of over 30,000 € net.
I am still working with Edmond + Team today and am very excited. I look forward to further cooperation and the holistic support. Thank you very much ! :)

I have been consulting with Edmond since the end of March and I am very enthusiastic. For the beginning, I had booked an 8-week consultation with him to first build up the basics (website, positioning, offer, etc.) accordingly. It was clear to me relatively quickly that I would definitely continue the consultation with Edmond after the 8 weeks. I immediately put my money where my mouth is and extended the cooperation by 12 months, which was an excellent decision.
Since the cooperation, a lot has happened to me, especially in terms of customer acquisition. I have learned a lot in the area of customer acquisition and thanks to Edmond's help and the placement of advertisements, the first inquiries are gradually coming in, so that I can work them off with the appropriate know-how.
If I had to draw my personal conclusion from the cooperation so far, I can say that it has been the best decision of my life to work with Edmond Rätzel and thus build a successful business in the long term. Thank you Edmond!
Edmond helped me set up my digital marketing. It wasn't just about online marketing, but first of all about understanding my target group and getting to grips with my ideal customers.
Until I had my first customer, I invested time in the things I had neglected the years before. Building my own sales structure that was also capable of handling a high volume of customer inquiries. With Edmond's support, I was able to do in two months what I hadn't been able to do the 7 years before: follow a purposeful direction and do the right things.
Photography is fun. Tinkering with the website is fun, too. Fiddling around in Lightroom and Photoshop is fun too, but that just doesn't put money in the coffers. And that's where Edmond comes in. Fostering the right mindset and molding the existing construct into a profitable sustainable business. Being industrious only pays off when the time and energy invested is channeled into the right channels.
At Edmond, the necessary information doesn't come all at once. More input is given little by little. That gets you into action. If you get everything at once, everything is started and nothing is implemented sensibly. With him, it's different. You get the knowledge you need for the next step and then there is a task you have to implement. Only when the results are well implemented do you move on. No half measures. But everything is structured in such a way that the individual building blocks are easy to implement.
The subsequent feedback is always quick and concrete to the point. The support is motivating and the community is also in lively exchange and supports you with words and deeds.
Thank you Edmond for your help to steer my business on the right track.
I met Edmond on LinkedIn, however I have seen several ads from him on YouTube. He immediately recommended an interview with Paul, which came out a few days later. There I learned about his book and ordered it at the same time as watching the video.
Since no cooperation with Edmond took place - well, not yet - I can "only" praise his book.
The book itself is loosely written, there are many pictures in it for better digestion. The content is also very well structured. His career, his "struggle" and his experiences and of course his process how he achieved all this or how he can support others through it.
Of course, if you want to go deep and are interested, you have to contact Edmond and his team. However, already in the book such important topics are addressed, such as leads, CRM, acquisition, feedbacks etc.. You can already take away quite a bit.
Thanks for this great issue ! Everyone should read it ! It has helped me a lot in the area of mindset, not to concentrate on everything but to keep the most important in focus ! My GOAL !
Edmond is very open and also always ready to support and motivate online!
Super YouTube channel with honest experiences that provide a breeding ground for good content!
Not everything is marketing but everything is marketing !!!
You can make the best pictures, the most beautiful videos but all that is worth nothing if no one sees it!
