Articles, Videos and Podcasts

Ascender gives your salespeople new content, daily. Our articles, videos and podcasts are meant to provide ways to help them improve  when they don't have a lot of time.

The content also provides motivation and sales best practices that they can consume on their own time, when you don't have the bandwidth to teach. 


With a small team, it can be difficult to build that camaraderie that drives bigger companies. Build your own sales bullpen by having your reps join our community. They can ask questions, share ideas and build a rapport with other salespeople who are also trying to make that quarter count.
