If you've been following along for a while you know that I've been a mystery shopper for years. I'm not doing the amount of shops now as I used to basically because I just can't eat out that often anymore! I've reduced my shopping to mainly coffee shops, stores and a few of my favorite restaurants. I also do a few others here and there.
Once in a while people ask me about mystery shopping and it never fails that these people all seem to ask at the same time. I did a blog post a couple of years ago on what exactly goes into the glamorous world of mystery shopping.
It's actually a really fun way to make a little mad money and try a few new businesses that you may not try otherwise.
If you do decide to give mystery shopping a try there are a few things you need to remember:
- You HAVE to have keen observational skills
- This isn't just an easy paycheck, you have to give detailed reports
- You need to be well spoken and concise in your reporting
- You need to give the FACTS unless asked for your opinion
If you read through this and the previous post and you have questions please let me know! I'm always happy to help!
