ALDI Australia equates new mobile service with existing products, such as lettuce

SYDNEY - ALDI Australia has launched a campaign for its new telecommunication product, ALDI Mobile, which offers a range of pre-paid, post-paid and data plans.

The three 30-second spots, named ‘Granny’, ‘Blokes’ and ‘Teenagers’ respectively, feature people using other items sold by ALDI in place of a phone. Examples: A tissue box, chocolate, an egg carton, a head of lettuce.

The idea is to transfer the brand's reputation for great prices on high-quality products to the telco market, which is known for expensive, complicated plans and hard to decipher call rates, according to the company.

The campaign is supported by TV, catalogue, POS and digital.

Carlos Alija and Laura Sampedro, joint BMF ECDs, said the challenge was to come up with a launch campaign able to stand out in the category, whilst creating a solid link with the master brand.

“In launching ALDI Mobile, we have tried to keep everything simple for our customers,” said an ALDI spokesperson. “We are really pleased that the advertising retains this simplicity, yet is also very watchable.”
