Marketing the SME

Innovation and Approach

Editor(s): Audrey Gilmore and David Carson
Author(s): Michele O’Dwyer

Book Description

Prior to the recent global economic downturn, Ireland witnessed a decade of unprecedented economic growth. Almost overnight, the country’s labour base was transformed from one where decades-long emigration was the norm to a new and dynamic paradigm incorporating net in-migration. A significant element in Ireland’s economic transformation involved innovative marketing strategies and the role of Small and Medium-size Enterprises (SMEs). SME’s were major providers for new jobs and this research addresses the key determinants of their success. This volume investigates a wide range of sophisticated, diverse and market-efficient strategies as adopted by Ireland’s SME’s to ensure global success.
