Markus has been with me since 2020 and is simply a kind-hearted person. He tells you clearly when you're wrong, but as a coach he helps you to come to the realization yourself. He is an advisor, mentor and friend.
His topics are about pricing, but not from a sales perspective - it's not about closing or putting pressure on customers. It is more about being fully aligned with customers, understanding them and thus automatically generating more value. More value = better price. For both customers and service providers.

As far as coaches in the agency environment are concerned, I was a bit of a sore thumb and therefore skeptical. But Markus quickly managed to dispel any doubts. His tips and food for thought can be implemented immediately and in our case also led directly to more profit. A clear recommendation.

Working with Markus is not an "ordinary" collaboration with fixed sessions like with a coach or therapist. Rather a holistic support with a genuine interest in the agency's success. Markus has the ability to shake fixed beliefs through targeted questions. With supposedly simple, but often so clear, human and logical ideas Markus helps to more joy, better customer relationships and ultimately more profit.

Nowhere else in D-A-CH do such open, useful and exciting people come together for such an exchange as with Markus Hartmann, who moderates and organizes this in such a wonderfully unagitated, sovereign and masterful manner, thus creating immediate benefits for practice.

As an agency, you are always in direct and often fiercely competitive competition with other agencies. We are all in the same boat. With the same problems, worries and needs - but instead of learning from each other, profiting from each other or simply exchanging experiences, we meet each other with suspicion and resentment.
In my opinion, Markus invalidates this competitive thinking with his consulting and service offer and thus creates a (slowly but steadily growing) paradigm shift. I am already enthusiastic before the start of his seminar and I am sure that with his psychology we will get more out of ourselves and for ourselves as well as achieve even better things for our customers.

We can recommend the cooperation for Markus without hesitation and unconditionally.

Since the beginning of 2020, he has helped us with his often unconventional approaches to break with established and harmful beliefs about both pricing and agency management and to adopt new, better, value-creating ways. We have followed his approaches, and to make a long story short, with outstanding results: More value, more appreciation, happier clients and employees.

And along the way, he has created what is probably the best, most collegial community of agency owners in the German-speaking world.

Markus has a good manner and conveys his topics with passion. I was able to learn a lot about both pricing and entrepreneurship and have not only implemented a lot of things, but also celebrated successes with them. The community he has built is also great, very helpful and collegial. I can only recommend it!

We started working with Mr. Hartmann as an agency about two years ago. What was originally intended as a comparison or as an aid in pricing quickly established itself as a method of thinking among almost all of our employees. The common phrase we use almost several times a week is "What would Hartmann ask/say? A corrective that helps us to focus on what our customers really want to pay us for. By not selling services and instruments, but by identifying the real issues and problems behind the problems and requests for offers with customers - the real levers. The result: we can be even more successful for our clients than we already were, have more fun and fees that are based on what we actually achieve for our clients. For our work, hiring Markus Hartmann as a consultant was one of the most correct and important decisions in recent years. A pleasant side effect: Even though I said method earlier, he is not selling a concept. Rather, it is a simple and concise guide to reflection. 90 percent transfer to everyday life (something I hardly know from other training courses) + concentration on the essentials. Hartmann helps to disentangle perspectives obscured by New Word phrases and to focus on the meaning of the work. Not in the sense of Purpose, but the sole purpose of existence of most ventures - to deliver added value to those companies/customers who pay (us) for it. Thank you Markus!

As a traditional advertising agency, you are often trapped in a very rigid hourly thinking and don't realize at all that lack of business success is due to this. I don't know anyone who can correctly plan complex client projects in particular on the basis of hours, because every project is always individual and is not like any before it - either the agency has offered too few hours and is at a disadvantage, or the client is paying significantly too much. The realization that there are no winners in this model came to us pretty quickly in Mark's seminar. Especially since we worked out the solution and the way to get there together in a practical way.

We were in the pricing seminar about 5 months ago and pretty quickly turned everything upside down in the agency and almost completely abolished hourly rates and time tracking. Currently we are in a transition phase, which - open words - is really hard and exhausting. Many old projects still have to be completed, while projects in the "new model" are being added by Markus. We see this as a short-term deterioration for a long-term improvement. Especially because the feedback from our customers reflects that we appear much more competent and professional than before.
