We are a team of 100% seniors and help companies like Migros, Swisscom and WordPress with digital marketing.
That’s more or less it. But if you’re still curious, keep scrolling.
We help to sustainably improve your 📈 Marketing and to win more customers at a lower cost – through digital advertising, conversion optimization and strategy.
For complementary services, we rely on strong partners.
The Jungfraujoch is the highest railroad station in Europe and one of the top tourist attractions on the continent. The Jungfrau.ch homepage is one of the most visited websites of Switzerland.
After Wortspiel was supporting Jungfrau Railways in the area of Google Ads for many years, we extended the cooperation to the conversion optimization of the website Jungfrau.ch.
The result: +14% more online bookings for the Jungfraujoch with the same number of website visitors. More about this in the video (Swiss German, English and German subtitles available):
Wemakeit: +25% leads at -18% costs with conversion optimization
MOVU: +18% leads at -32% costs with Google Ads (Case study with Google Switzerland)

We don’t aim to become the largest agency, but rather the best. That’s why we rely on clear values:
Cooperation can only work well if we’re aligned on a personal level. We value honesty, humility and authenticity.
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.
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.
