There have been so many debates by mystery shopping critics to decrease the buzz around it as an effective tool for market research. However neutral people who are neither mystery shopping fanatics nor critics will notice that it’s indeed very helpful in market research due to the great and original feedback generated about different products when compared with other market research methods. Secret shoppers see it as not just an additional income stream but an opportunity to help improve the level of quality of products and services in their localities.
Mystery shopping has bulldozed itself into a respectable and effective way of making money and even though many people think it’s just a waste of time and doesn’t pay much but this is not true. This is because many people who have had bad secret shopping experiences were too lazy to provide original feedback. People who have developed great mystery shopping careers did so by taking their time to choose the best shopping assignments that are made available but this can’t be done overnight.
There are so many people who find mystery shopping attractive due to the fact you can get into it with absolutely no form of experience and you get the chance to act as an actor and assessor of products on the market simultaneously. Secret shopping requires no repetitive tasks but can’t be done without much time and effort. You will have to apply the necessary ethics and create a good image as a reliable mystery shopper while interacting well with the staff of mystery shopping companies in order to get access to frequent shopping assignments and highly paid ones. Mystery shopping is very profitable and apart from the tangible benefits such as cash and access to free products and services, you also get fulfillment from the knowledge that you are helping companies come out with better products and services for all consumers.
