Top 10 Sales Podcasts

Last Updated On: August 28, 2017



At Klenty, helping you improve your sales skills is our primary goal.

To help you learn from the big seismic ideas that shaped sales as an industry, we published the top 10 Sales books that you must read. To help you stay on top of new ideas and trends, we pointed in the direction of the top blogs that salespeople should follow. Our weekly newsletter Salespresso sends you a curated list of the best sales articles every week.

Beyond books and blogs, podcasts are an excellent source of inspiration and knowledge. You can listen to them a few minutes at a time, on the go, while in the gym or during your commute. The breezy conversational style of most of these podcasts enable easy consumption and at the same time, contain nuggets of ideas that you can implement every day at work.

To paraphrase, Peter Drucker in Managing Oneself, some people learn by reading, and others by listening. If you are one of the “others” then here is a list of top sales podcasts that you must follow (in no particular order).
