Dynamic Marketing Solutions was set up in October 2005 by Neil Close, Director/Business owner. It provides Advertising and Marketing services – through the line, with the main focus being on design and service based on the general understanding of a client’s marketplace. The business was founded on the back of work Neil carried out for a large Automotive Group based in Mayo, with additional premises located in Galway, Limerick, Cork and Athlone. Other new clients followed, including: Calor Gas and Westport Golf Club – Centenary event. More recently, clients include Hyster-Yale EMEA, Stapleton’s Tyre Services and Briggs Equipment.
Neil explains: "My clients expect a service from Dynamic Marketing that is quick, precise and cost-effective. I am seen as part of the Marketing team that can be called upon anytime. Services provided include complete campaigns throughout Europe to social media adverts for major tyre brands. Growth for the future includes plans to target B2B businesses in Ireland in HVAC, Sealants and Adhesives sectors."
Camaraderie at Leeson Enterprise Centre
As an entrepreneur in charge of his own destiny, Neil very much enjoys his own autonomy but also enjoys the company and presence of other business people operating from their shared base at Leeson Enterprise Centre.
Neil explains: "I am really happy, I work better on my own, but it can be quite lonely, so it’s good to have someone to run things by. My business has grown since setting up in the Leeson Centre. You have the benefit of discussing issues or problems with other businesses that might have had the same problems. There is a real sense of camaraderie. This was especially true during Covid."
The Centre itself fits in really well in Westport, Neil believes, adding: " It’s a bit of a business hub by virtue of the Westport Chamber also being based here. The more the Leeson Centre grows, the more SMEs I would see coming to Westport to start up in business. Ideally, the Centre would expand into the Council Offices space next door when they move."
In regard to growth for the Centre Neil also suggests: "It would be great to see the Community Radio station based in the Leeson Centre and The Mayo News."
Neil's top tip for anyone looking to set up their own enterprise is to be sure to: "Talk to other SME’s in the same kind of market."
