Dreamtime Marketing is a marketing consultancy and training firm that serves ambitious CEOs, business owners, and solo entrepreneurs.

Hi, I am Hope Himel-Benson, a licensed clinical social worker with a successful marketing and business development career in the healthcare, legal, and nonprofit sectors.

For years I served clients of nonprofit and healthcare agencies as a licensed clinical social worker. Around 2003, I found myself also stepping in to support the same agencies with their website content, marketing, and social media management since they could not afford to hire outside assistance.

I am a self-professed information and resource junkie. Personally and professionally, I am most fulfilled when helping others connect to solutions that meet their needs and achieve their goals.

Hope Himel-Benson, LCSW | Founder of Dreamtime Marketing

In 2009, one of those agencies offered me the opportunity to become their first full-time marketer. This proved to be a life-changing and rewarding opportunity to live out my passion for helping others find and connect to much-needed information and resources–but through a new avenue. My path quickly transitioned from being a statewide leader in the social worker community to a highly respected marketing and communications professional across the Gulf South.

After nearly two decades of networking with small business owners and agency directors, I experienced that many did not have the benefit of a fully trained marketing and communications department. Born from a desire to help more businesses better reach and serve more people in their community, I decided to launch a consultancy and training firm to help bridge the gap.

Unlike traditional marketing companies, I founded Dreamtime Marketing on the core tenants and values from my professional social work and case management background. The values of individualization, self-determination, and integrity throughout the helping process guide my work to help clients reach their business goals and and dreams.

Consulting and Training Packages

Marketing Strategy & Implementation Plan

Dreamtime Marketing offers a comprehensive digital audit and strategic planning and implementation package. This package is specifically designed for ambitious business owners who want to bring or keep their online marketing in-house.

Your customized written plan will provide you with a modern blueprint, tools, and techniques to connect, build, and maintain relationships with your dream clients to in turn grow your business.

We start with a Discovery Call. We will discuss what is most important to you. What are your goals and dreams for your business? What are your greatest marketing challenges? What are your pain points? Who are your ideal clients? What have you tried? What is working and what has not? Where do you need the most support? What are your resources (people, time, budget, tools, etc.)? Are there any major changes anticipated in your business?

Next, we schedule a Strategy Planning Call. We send you some worksheets to gather detailed data for the call and obtain access to your marketing assets, social media and digital accounts, websites, analytics, etc.

Once completed, we begin with the first phase which averages 4-6 weeks. Here we use the latest social intelligence tools to complete a digital audit, research how your brand is currently performing online and on social media, perform a competitor analysis, determine target market influences and interaction, and more. We will also take a close look at your current marketing assets (print collateral, email list, CRM, etc,). Based upon your goals, interviews with team members and clients can also be included in the process. We assimilate all of the research and formulate your personalized Strategic Marketing Plan.

During this phase, we will have a few video or phone meetings where we share the findings of the audit process with recommendations to allow you to begin getting quick wins.

Once the comprehensive Strategy Plan is completed and presented in a final meeting, we will schedule the package-included training and coaching sessions to help you implement your strategic plan.

Phase two begins with 1:1 training which includes a plan for content development, creation, and distribution on the recommended and/or chosen platforms. We can review and help you revise or put new systems in place to effectively manage your marketing program. If needed, we can provide project management for supplemental marketing projects (i.e. graphic design, website updates, paid advertising, photography, videos, headshots, etc.). The training and coaching phase ranges from 3-12 months, depending upon plan elements and desired team schedule.

Schedule a complimentary 15-minute Discovery Call to learn how a Customized Marketing Strategy & Implementation Plan can empower and equip your small business to successfully manage a modern marketing program.
