Not everyone has the same level of knowledge about Wi-Fi.

Many customers would understandably panic when it looked like something was not right with their Wi-Fi, and so they would call Telstra. But most of the time the issue could be solved very simply, with a bit of basic knowledge.


Shift customer behaviour.

A basic education about Wi-Fi was needed to empower the audience, improve their confidence and save time.


Empathy and expertise are the keys to influence.

BlueMelon Design drew on the collective expertise of Telstra’s internal Wi-Fi team and turned it into valuable content. The new content acknowledged the customer’s pain point and used storytelling to cut through.

Content Audit

A content audit of Telstra’s current offering as well as the landscape of internet troubleshooting content showed us where Telstra was going wrong and where the content opportunity lied.

Strategic Storytelling

Telstra’s existing content around ‘Wi-Fi Troubleshooting’ was very technical and corporate. By editorialising the topic in a blog post, we were able to acknowledge and diffuse the customer’s heightened emotional state of frustration and make them more receptive to the helpful tips and tricks.

SEO-led Content

Keyword research showed us that customers do not view their wifi problem as a ‘slow wifi’, but that to them it was rather ‘slow internet’. Identifying this key point was crucial to the positioning of the content.

A/B Testing

The campaign had three unique target audiences and we needed to reach all of them with the same tips. We designed a specific rollout of social posts for each audience that we A/B tested to ensure our contact would have maximum impact.

“The BlueMelon team are amazing!! They brought a fresh perspective, with every recommendation being backed by solid data. They really know content marketing.”

Evergreen content that supports existing customers and attracts new ones.

Telstra’s new package of Wi-Fi Troubleshooting content is helping to create, confident home internet users who value Telstra’s products and their human approach. The content is also being discovered and consumed by non-Telstra customers, priming them to switch to Telstra in the future.
