“I founded Hamlin and Associates on August 8th of 1988. We started by selling basic “commercial mail” to automobile dealers out of a tiny office in Peru, IL. At that time, our customer service, event staffing and sales training separated us from other companies in the direct marketing industry. In 2004, I moved the company to Ormond Beach, FL and started to focus more on product development and hiring a team to help us handle our growth. We began developing our software to help us make better marketing decisions based on customer data and buying cycle information. We used this data and overall knowledge to simply start a better conversation between the dealership and the consumer, which yielded a much better response and overall ROI.

Today, our focus remains the same and we’re committed to being the company that will always blaze the trail rather than follow the beaten path. Our entire team is devoted to providing dealers with a better product and a better experience and we’re proud to serve over 2,000 dealers across the United States. I personally invite you to reach out to our team to learn more about what we can do for your dealership. I assure you, you’ll be glad you did.
