In the first episode we spoke with Wortspiel customer Laurent Decrue, co-founder and CEO of the largest Swiss relocation startup, MOVU.

Laurent explained how MOVU had become a market leader within a short period of time; how much of this success could be attributed to our Google Ads expertise and why he loves to ski.

Our values

We don’t aim to become the largest agency, but rather the best. That’s why we rely on clear values:

Wortspiel Values

Friendliness

Cooperation can only work well if we’re aligned on a personal level. We value honesty, humility and authenticity.

Freedom

Trust is more important to us than contracts. As long as both parties are happy and continue to evolve together, we will keep working together. If this changes we will part ways.

Focus

The marketing landscape is changing so fast that long-term top performance is only possible with a high degree of specialisation. We prefer to do less and do it as well as possible.
