Direct marketing and e-marketing This method is a form of sales and supply which is made directly to the consumer. Also included in this method is tele-marketing, door to door distribution.

Direct marketing is used to target customers directly so that they are aware of the product and so that they can come to them directly so they can get there tickets as cheap as possible. This can also mean leaflets that you are getting though the post which could show you special offers that they have on. By BA marketing on the internet they can make their price cheaper because it is very cheap to run a internet page than a shop because the overheads are next to nothing unlike a shop where the overheads are very expensive. There are also negatives on running on the internet which is that old fashion people rather purchase tickets face to face because they do not trust the internet yet because they have heard about frauds that have been taken place. ?? ?? ?? ??
