About

Dreamtime Marketing is a marketing consulting firm that serves small businesses and solo entrepreneurs.

Dreamtime Marketing was founded by Hope Himel-Benson, a licensed clinical social worker with a successful communications and marketing career in the healthcare, legal, and nonprofit sectors. Sparked by the knowledge that many small businesses and solo entrepreneurs do not have the benefit of a marketing and communications team, Himel-Benson decided to launch her own independent business to fill the gap.

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.

Different from traditional marketing agencies, Hope founded Dreamtime Marketing on the core tenants and values her professional social work and case management background. The values of individualization, self-determination, and integrity throughout the helping process guide her work in supporting every client to reach their business goals and ultimately fulfill their own dreams.

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

In 2009, one of those agencies offered her the opportunity to become their first full-time marketer. This proved to be a life-changing and rewarding opportunity to live out her passion for helping others find and connect to much-needed information and resources in a different manner.

Since that time, Hope has gone on to help small business locations across the Gulf South with their marketing, advertising, and communication needs.
