This study aimed to determine how marketing tactics affected consumer spending in Nigeria. The marketing mix theory and the push-pull theory served as the study’s guiding principles. To ascertain the effects of marketing tactics on consumer patronage in Nigeria, this study used a descriptive research survey. The study’s intended audience was corporate managers working in Abuja’s Central Business District. The study used a stratified sampling technique where the business owners were divided into different business categories including food and restaurant enterprises and other non-food item businesses in order to create an acceptable study sample. The study planned to use 50 small- and medium-sized business managers from the Abuja Central Business District (CBD), who were officially registered by the government and represented 10% of the population.

Utilizing questionnaires, primary data were gathered for this study. Both open-ended and closed-ended questions were included in the questionnaires in accordance with the study’s goals. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data that was gathered. Statistical Package for Social Sciences was used for data analysis (SPSS version 21.0). According to the study’s findings, a large number of businesses in Abuja employed product development methods, which had a positive significant impact on consumers’ purchasing decisions in Nigeria. Product development strategy aids SMEs in achieving company objectives including expanding into new markets, selling more to current consumers, or stealing market share from rivals. Pricing tactics significantly influenced consumer spending in Nigeria in a favorable way.

Pricing a product too low or too high, however, may have unforeseen effects on sales. Pricing strategies provide SMEs the freedom to adjust pricing to attract new clients or to hold prices steady and boost profit margins. The patronage of customers in Nigeria was positively and significantly impacted by promotional methods. The study further indicates that the use of promotional methods helped to keep clients or consumers informed about what the business offered, as well as how much the product costs and where to get it. Place initiatives significantly impacted consumer spending in Nigeria in a favorable way. One of the finest strategies to turn internet and foot visitors into new customers is location-based marketing.





1.1 Background of study

Marketing strategies are a key component of marketing operations that increase sales. The cause is not implausible; most businesses or organizations employ marketing tactics to gauge how well their items are selling in order to grow their profit margin. Product strategy, price strategy, promotion strategy, and other marketing tactics are used to increase sales. Therefore, a company’s marketing strategy can be described as a consistent, relevant, and workable approach via which it aspires to meet its long-term goals for customers and profits in a given competitive environment.

Management uses marketing strategy as a key factor in determining how to best help things sell and hence raise profitability. Some businesses fail as a result of their refusal to implement some of the key marketing tactics that encourage consumers to buy their goods. A marketer uses a variety of promotional methods, such as advertising, personal selling, sales promotion, public relations, and publicity, as part of their strategy to influence potential buyers.

Marketers need to make sure that the aforementioned tactics are used in order to meet the company’s objectives and ultimately boost revenue. Meanwhile, a thorough understanding of the numerous marketing techniques must be used for a certain target operation in order to persuade the client to purchase the product, increasing the company’s sales volume.

Problem of Inadequate Funds: Due to a lack of funding, the researcher is unable to cover a large area. In certain circumstances, information needs to be purchased; if funding is not available, the information is forgone.  Ill-equipped Libraries: Recent and current information could not be evaluated because of the virtual book museum that passes for libraries and research facilities.
