1. Your sales at businesses are 100% unrelated to visitors. Customers are generated automatically on the business floor at a rate determined by that business category's demand (roughly, it works out to an average of about 1 every 7 seconds at 100% demand).
2. Where visitors do go is 100% random and, with the exception of VIPs or an apartment with a vacancy, do NOTHING anyhow - they don't buy anything, they don't sit down on the couch for X-Box game at a full apartment, etc.. You get the tip and they wander off to the right and disappear.
What you are stressing out on are irrelevant points you have no control over.
