Any commercial activity begins with the study of its future client in order to adapt to him and accelerate his access to the product that one wishes to sell to him. In the context of the web this can be called buyer persona optimization.
It has always existed. It can be seen in what are thought to be traditional businesses that do not have sophisticated sales techniques.
In the souk, we can observe that the touts do not appeal to all passers-by, and above all do not appeal to them in the same way.
First, they only appeal to passers-by who may be interested in their services or products. And above all they adapt their speech according to whether they are addressed to a woman, a man, a young person, an old man, someone they know ….
For example, a candy vendor will address a child, while a book or medicine vendor will address parents even if their product is intended for children.
