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.

Hello all,

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.

Highly recommended. (I would buy again :))

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!

Thank you Edmond 🔥🔥

As a wedding photographer, I have always been looking for clients who not only know how to award my work, but can also honor it and you have a full calendar as a service provider. Even at the beginning of a photographer's career, you quickly realize that even if you make the most beautiful photos. The customers do not come to you on their own!

Therefore, I was since then on the search, for just this solution. For a long time I didn't want to know about marketing, sales and online presence. Because I only relied on my photographic skills and hoped that one day it would all change. (At some point they all come to me)

Sooner or later I did come across the marketing topic which was dumb at first. I bought several online courses and learned. My knowledge base kept expanding. But the more I learned, the more questions and chaos came along. Somehow, the structure was just missing, a fixed, regular and routine process! The knowledge was there and I also hoped that it was the right knowledge. So useful for ME and MY case!

One day, I remember back in April 2019 I still stumbled upon Edmond his advertising. And in September 2019, I wanted to contact him for the first time or to sign up for the initial consultation. But somehow, for whatever reason, I didn't dare. I had the feeling that I may not have been ready or something like that.

In January 2020, I dared and signed up, listened to everything. Was very enthusiastic and motivated, but still I had the thought that I could do it myself alone!
Now so passed further 2, not so successful, years. I had learned even more, tried even more. I was even more confused by all the knowledge than anything else. Some things worked a little, some didn't work at all.

And finally. Better said FINALLY! I made up my mind and enrolled in April 2022. Since then, I've been going through Edmond's coaching at my pace, really fast. Every day, every lesson were just so awesome instructive. Well not just instructive, but you just had the feeling from the start that you were using your time for real useful stuff. And that's exactly how it happened.

What kind of work Edmond does and how much effort he puts into it is just unbelievable! I received individual feedback, tips and motivation from him every day! You can't imagine it any better than that!

After a short time it went for me to the advertising circuit. Which brought me, within one week, 19 inquiries. I do not want to brag about it, but I have my highest conclusion was at a12 hour wedding, at 3,400.00 EUR. I was simply BAFF! After such a short time...

If I had the opportunity to go back in time, I would advise myself to get Edmond support asap!

THANK YOU EDMOND!

After reading the book and being able to identify with the content, I also decided to work with Edmond. The promise that is given to win more customers and that above all plannable, was exactly what I needed in my phase. Away from months that cannot be planned concretely to a structured planning with 1-2 months in advance.

Edmond has kept exactly this promise, in addition to many tips and advice that I have received, but above all the promise of Edmond and his team was kept, to win predictable customers. After a short time I have already been able to achieve success with the cooperation and win new customers for me, which makes me very happy and above all takes stress from me.

I can only recommend Edmond and promise that you are in the best hands as a photographer and videographer here.

I have been a self-employed photographer for 12 years and for me business was very slow, mostly after referrals - but that alone was not enough! Well, everything has changed since I met Edmond and learned about his strategy. He convinced me to accept his help and immediately I was able to celebrate success by winning an important customer after a few days (phone calls). I have been in the program for three months and I can already say that I made the right decision - it took me over a year! In two weeks I have already received 14 inquiries and won and scheduled 5 weddings! WOW!
This is hard work, what is behind it and Edmond supports very professional and motivated - big praise!
For all those who do not know Edmond's strategy yet and want to master new experiences, challenges, need personal growth - THEN THIS IS THE RIGHT DECISION! Get out of the comfort zone, who wants to change something!
Can only recommend Edmond! And another important thing: if you're a guy like me who needs someone to kick your ass - you're definitely in good hands with him.😉
Thanks Edmond and keep it coming!

Hello my name is Yannic and I am a videographer from Austria. I am quite honest at first I was very skeptical whether the methods that are used here because really bring something or help me in my situation at all. First of all, you learn a lot of useful things that you can use in everyday life, but very often you do not even think about, but even at this point my skepticism was not completely gone. After we worked out our concept together with Edmond and the first inquiries came in, I was already very happy - but as the whole thing went on and on, I didn't know what to say anymore. I have to say it's not an ultimate solution and you don't get everything thrown at you, you have to do something and put some time into it, but Edmond clearly knows how to motivate someone and shows you the right perspective. I definitely recommend it.

When I first saw the ad, I was very skeptical. Even after the first conversation with the customer service, I was still not completely convinced. It was only after the second consultation that I realized I had to give it a chance, "NO RISK NO FUN."

The strategies and systems you get for customer acquisition from Edmond are on a very high level and they work. What makes them special is that they are designed to be beginner friendly and simple to implement. But you have to have patience and time to make them work 100%.

From the beginning Edmond motivated and pushed me. Even in the most difficult situations Edmond always has a solution. He is available every day and answers questions quickly and well.

In the end, I can say that working with Edmond was the best decision for me.

I can only recommend Edmond and I am very grateful for his help.

When I first saw the ad, Attract desirable customers in a predictable way as a filmmaker I was very skeptical because customer acquisition is very costly and at some times seems impossible.
However, since I started working with Emond and decided to do the consulting,
a lot has changed for me and I got the perspective to
to continue building the Urban Films company. This is exactly why I recommend Edmond.
The most important thing is to let go of your old strategies or to believe that you already know everything,
because that's what's holding you back personally.
Edmond is available daily, which gives me extra security because you can quickly switch to new solutions. Thanks for the mega advice and look forward to further collaboration. So, lets go!

I enjoyed reading the book. Edmund certainly doesn't invent any new marketing strategies, and he doesn't have to. He brings to the point, what is important, brings a kind of roadmap with system in the whole, on which you can orient yourself well. The book inspires and brings one so on new, own ideas.
I really enjoyed reading it and tried to implement it for myself.

Thank you very much for it.

My book recommendation for all those who thought they already knew everything about the business as a photographer📸

For me it was like a checklist, after the first year of my self-employment!
There really are all the relevant topics in here, explained succinctly.
Like a roadmap, from start to finish 🏁

Since there are not many in the German-speaking world who specialize in this topic, I can only recommend this read to every photographer.
So if you practice or want to practice photography full-time or part-time!

My top learnings from it:

✅ What steps are necessary to go from photographer to entrepreneur.
✅ In addition to positioning, a clear structure and a functioning system are enormously important.
✅ Invest in yourself rather than buying new equipment over and over again
✅ Sales and marketing are the 2 most important levers to get ahead. Being able to photograph well is no longer enough
✅ Separate performance from results
✅ Need triumphs over trust

Thank you Edmond!
You came at the right time with your book and posts on social media and YouTube 🍀

I was very skeptical from the beginning. But I always wanted to turn my hobby into a job, but I never knew how. I became aware of Edmond Rätzel through YouTube and then just listened to everything first. I was unsure, but then I thought to myself, "do it differently and see if it works." My motto is always "no risk, no fun!".

From the beginning I was motivated and pushed by Edmond. Often I felt like everything was against me because a lot of things went wrong in the beginning, but Edmond always had a solution for me. He always calmed me down and motivated me to reach my goal. I am still in the beginning, but I am convinced with his methods and knowledge, I can win many customers. Edmond is super easy going, very helpful. He is always there for you and really takes the time to explain things to you individually.
I can only recommend him and am very grateful that I dufte know him!!! シ
