The 5S of digital marketing are a simple framework to review and define the top-level goals of digital marketing in an organisation. They were defined by PR Smith in Chaffey, D. and Smith, P.R. (2017) Digital Marketing Excellence, Planning, Optimising and integrating digital marketing, 5th edn, Taylor & Francis. They were included in the first edition in 2001.

This is the meaning of the 5S:

  • Sell – Grow sales. Includes direct online sales where products can be sold online and sales from offline channels influenced online. Achieved through wider distribution to customers you cannot readily service offline or perhaps through a wider product range than in-store, or lower prices compared to other channels.
  • Serve – Add value. Achieved through giving customers extra benefits online or inform product development through online dialogue and feedback.
  • Speak – Get closer to customers. Creating a two-way dialogue through conversation marketing, i.e. web interactions like forums and livechat and conducting online market research through formal surveys and informally monitoring conversations to learn about them.
  • Save – Save costs. Achieved through online email communications, sales and service transactions to reduce staff, print and postage costs. Savings also accrue through ‘web self-service’ where customers answer queries through online content
  • Sizzle – Extend the brand online. Achieved through providing new propositions, new offers and new experiences online including building communities
