Get insights to 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.

The Cultivize Team

Jason Kramer

Founder, CEO, Head Coach

Jason lives in NY with his wife, two children, and two dogs…you guessed it, it’s not a quiet house.

He is formally trained as a brand strategist and holds a communication design degree from Syracuse University. He started his career as a graphic designer at NYC ad agencies working with global clients in the travel, food, and liquor industries. Seeing an opportunity to help startups and small businesses with an alternative option in lieu of hiring several freelancers, Jason started his first company in 2002, a pioneering virtual agency long before that concept even existed. For over 15 years Jason’s agency, JLK Creative, worked with a wide variety of service-based companies in the Metro NY area helping them with branding, web development, print, and email marketing.

In 2018, Jason founded his 2nd company, Cultivize, and leveraged his existing partnership with SharpSpring. Today, Cultivize is one of only a handful of Platinum Certified SharpSpring partners in the world and 100% focused on coaching, empowering, and implementing lead nurturing strategies for its clients.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Us!

The Cultivize team is very knowledgeable about SharpSpring. They answer all our questions and approached our custom CRM installation thoughtfully, methodically, and very patiently.

Bill Ervin

The Social Sales Link Team was looking for an automation tool that encompassed CRM, email and website tools that helped us with marketing efforts and intelligence. The challenge we were facing was the incredible amount of time and talent needed to onboard any automation tool we would choose. Then we found Jason and Cultivize and all our marketing automation struggles were solved.  With minimal effort on our part, Jason and his team guided the entire onboarding and set up the process, going live in less than 2-weeks from sign-up (which is almost unheard of in the marketing automation space).  And, included in our competitive package, Jason gives us an hour a month of consultation helping is to optimize the site for leads and campaigns.  Both Jason and Cultivize have helped transform our marketing and lead generation and proves an ROI month over month.

Brynne Tillman

The Cultivize team are both experts and professionals. They have added enormous benefit to Pub K in a short amount of time. Helping us convert our email publishing delivery platform and walking us through all of the features that the platform has to offer has been invaluable.

Robert Nichols

If I could use only one word to describe Jason, it would be ‘knowledgeable’. He never lacks for knowledge of Sharpspring marketing automation how it will work with your business or your customers business if you are an agency. Efficiency is the name of his game and ‘limitations’ are not even a part of his vocabulary. If there is a better way to do something, Jason knows about it.
