Learn How to Nurture and Convert Prospective Buyers to Customers

Get insights into the fundamentals for a well-thought-out lead nurturing campaign from CEO of Cultivize, Jason Kramer.

Our Story

After seeing so many wholesalers, distributors, online retailers, service providers, and manufacturers losing potential revenue from massive holes in their funnel, Cultivize was founded to stop the leakage by educating and coaching people to learn the process and master the technology.

They spend money to generate prospective buyers. They do this using a variety of methods from digital marketing, print advertising, direct mail, billboards, radio, TV, social media and so on. In many cases, all this money is spent without being able to attribute earned or lost revenue to each marketing/lead-gen effort.
We came to understand this is because a lot of businesses don’t have a succinct process and technology platform in place to nurture and educate their prospects through their buying journey. It’s a known fact that it’s far more cost-effective to nurture your current pipeline than to spend money on capturing new leads. Over the last 10 years, marketing automation and CRM platforms have risen to prominence by enabling sales teams to become significantly more efficient and effective when this technology becomes part of their daily toolbox.

VISION

To empower our clients with customized strategies and award-winning technology, allowing them to connect the dots between their prospect/customer data, current marketing campaigns and sales team activity.

MISSION

To coach and accelerate our client’s sales teams using proven sales enablement techniques to give them “real-time” insights on which prospects are highly engaged. To help marketing teams have a clear understanding of which campaigns are generating revenue and those that need to be revisited or abandoned.

VALUES

It’s cliché to say, but we treat every customer as we’d want to be treated: With transparency, timely responses, integrity and honesty.
