Strategic marketing planning as an essential tool for an organizational growth, aims at arriving at a dependable and logical conclusion both in an economy (private, public) and government parastatals in the following ways?

1. It tends to bring customer relation in order to achieve a common goal which is established for.

2. It increases the growth and sales volume of an organization thereby determining the profit margin or turnover.

3. It enables an organization to evaluate their performance by analyzing what we called (Swot) analysis i.e strength, weaknesses, opportunity and threat, the area of strength will be maintained and controlled to operate in the market (monopolistic).  Conversely, weaknesses will be given greater attention to in that , if this is not properly highlighted, the organization will barely  break even.

4. It assures the future of the organization either they are making profit.

5. It also aimed at examine the ways and methods of identifying the customer needs and wants in the target market.

However, strategic marketing planning as an essential tool for an organizational growth cannot be over – emphasized.  When one came to look at its dominant role it play in an organization and economy at large. If marketing planning which is to be carried out by the marketing practitioners are not strategically identifies, the company will be liable to face liquidation (it determines the success and the exist of the organization).   


The research work is carried out in order to ascertain the impact of strategic marketing planning as adopted by many organizations particularly Nigeria Bottling Company, Ilorin Branch to what extent is it important of the aspect of the company?
