Over here at ToutApp we are more of a teaching company than a selling one. We like to teach salespeople how to be better at sales by providing rich content, videos and resources.

But they also are passionate about teaching others how to be a better at advertising and marketing. When we took a look in there resource center, we were impressed to say the least. Trada provides content on everything from how to create effective landing pages for your campaigns to how to optimize your blog posts  Pretty awesome stuff.
