Souk Salesmen feedback

Hey guys was wondering if you've ever been to middle east north africa region and got to see the souks.


What do you think of how the sellers style is? Share your experiences, for me it's downright annoying.


Ill put it under the closing category cause those guys are all about closing whether you like it or not.

It's like door-to-door sales reps, it's a tough gig and not for the faint of heart. They also generally have way more on the line than most of us here at War Room. If I have a bad month, I might not be going out as much next few weekends. If they have a week of subpar sales, their family might not be eating.

Annoying? Yes. Respect the shit out of them? Absolutely.

Love your take, my problem is that they don't respect boundaries and don't repect the No. Some are aggressive. Others borderline hustlers

Yeah, no does not mean no in many countries unfortunately.ย 
I am biased with this because, while not Souk, my family is Vietnamese and my dad grew up dirt poor. Had to sell rice cakes and anything else he could get his hands on at the age of 6 or so. He's heard my calls and said how I was not good at sales because I wasn't aggressive enough! Definitely a culture thing.

I wonder if something comparable in North America would be mall kiosks

I know what you mean but didn't mind it at all, and they were respectful. I enjoyed bartering, and it was fun.ย
