Creating value through the marketing mix
An Aldi case study
History Of Aldi
The chain is made of two separate groups:
Founded in 1913, Essen, Germany
The company first started by the mother of Karl Albrecht and Theo Albrecht, the owners of Aldi.
‘To provide our customers with the products they buy regularly and ensure that those products are of the highest possible quality at guaranteed low prices.'
Another key focus of Aldi’s marketing strategy is on demonstrating that Aldi brands are of equal quality to well known brands such as Heinz and Fairy Liquid.
To do this Aldi ran blind taste tests amongst a cross section of shoppers.
These confirmed that the majority of consumers that liked the famous brands also liked Aldi’s brands.
What is marketing?
The Chartered Institute of Marketing describes the term marketing as the process:
‘Responsible for identifying, anticipating and satisfying consumers requirements profitably.'
The AIDA model can be used to demonstrate the aim of any promotional activity.
Selecting the prices is one of the most difficult considerations when developing a marketing mix. Different pricing strategies that are commonly used include:
increase awareness and improve brand recognition
