My friend V. S. turned me onto this world recently. We've all heard of mystery shoppers but what is it really?
Actually, it's not the easiest thing in the world to do. Each assignment has different responsibilities, some are going in and just grading the business on a few things, while others require a laptop, digital camera and remembering the names of greeters, staff, checking the bathroom supplies........
Although some pay very well you have to be quick to get the really good ones. You can rate a drive thru experience and earn about $8-$10, or you can rate the previews at a movie theater and stay and watch the movie for free. Or if you're really good you can have a $100+ meal, get reimbursed and be paid $100-$200 for an evening of fun.
It is a complex registration and requires a lot of patience to get through all of the sites and determine which assignments you want to apply for. Theres also a school you can attend. One is a little on-line class that runs $15 or if you are serious you can do a one day in person for $125. Which ever one you decide to attend you will earn a rating which will help you get the better assignments.
As an added incentive you're graded on each report you complete, the higher your percentages the more schedulers are looking at you. A scheduler is the person you apply to for an assignment and who makes the determination who gets the assignment.
Really a cool way to get out, experience new places at no cost and get paid for doing it.
Contact me today to receive the website where you can register and start learning how you can become a secret shopper. It is somewhat time consuming to begin the process, but once you're registered and have a few reports under your belt it gets easier and easier to find the great assignments.
I do charge a nominal fee of $7.00 to provide the web site required to begin the journey, but again you're only going to get out of it what you put into it. Payable through pay pal or mail.
