There may be some products that you can offer but no one will purchase them because people are not interested in. Make an effort to know more about your customer because this will make a lot of difference with the business that you have.

Kyc is an acronym, so it can't have one. Kyc is a sales cliche but one which is fundamental to good practice, or at least, effective practice. It stands for Know Your Customer, or don't try to sell coals to coalminers, or high heels to octogenarians. It is also an ethical requirement for those in the securities industry who are dealing with customers during the opening and maintaining of accounts.
