Founded For Business Owners By Business Owners
Stop Vetting, Start Growing
Based On Results.
Not Pitch Decks.
How It Works
Our program is designed to match you with the correct marketer, provide you a lowest price guarantee, and create an accountability system so that the marketer provides adequate attention to your account
Tell us about your business. Let us know the type of service you need, your current ad spend, and current/expected results and we get to work.
We only start matching you if we think we have the ideal candidate for you with ample capacity. If we do, we'll continuously match you until satisfied.
We make sure that the agency offers you a free audit and their lowest price guaranteed, which we continuously monitor through interviews with their current & past customers.
We continuously check-in to assure that the agency has been living up to standards. If we see a pattern of negative feedback, we take the agency off of our platform in order to maintain quality.

Ascend was founded by business owners after repeated frustration with current marketing agencies and freelancers. Pitch deck after pitch deck, each agency had their own case study showcasing their incredible results and promising they can do the same for us.
After several years of bouncing around with agencies, we were finally matched with an agency with relevant experience and the difference was night and day.
After seeing the power of being matched with the right agency, we created Ascend. We believe every business owner has the right to be matched with an agency that has PROVEN themselves in a certain niche based on actual results, direct audits and thorough feedback.
Our mission is to end the loop of frustrations business owners find themselves in when searching for a marketer so that they can spend less time vetting and more time on having their business Ascend.
Founded by business owners who were tired of hearing marketing agencies fake promises. Ascend was founded to take out the guesswork in hiring top talent. We rigorously vet and audit each of our agencies so you can stop wasting time vetting and spend more time growing.
"5x your growth or you don't pay" just didn't cut it for us anymore. We then set out on a mission to find the best marketing agencies that were scaling some of the fastest-growing companies in our industry. Ascend was created on the premise that all business owners should have access to these marketing agencies so that they can stop wasting time vetting, and spend more time growing.
Each of our agencies goes through a rigorous acceptance process. We currently only accept <5% of all agencies that apply. See below for more on our process.
In order for our agencies to then qualify for a certain industry or niche, they must have successfully scaled 7-10 businesses by 3-5x in a cost-effective manner
As opposed to other "agency" matching programs, you continuously get placed until you get matched for free! Agencies also guarantee lowest pricing to the leads generated to our platform.
