Mystery Shopping Betting Shop Assignment – and Others
It’s a blog today after a short trip to a local town to carry out three mystery shop assignments. And there is a mystery shopping betting shop assignment here. It’s the usual shop, lunch, shop scenario that has come to typify my mystery shopping activities at this time of the year.
This will quieten down soon so I’m just making the most of the last of the opportunities.
Mystery Shopping DIY Store
The first assignment is a home improvement store and this one is very similar to one I did last week I browsed the shop floor for literally 9 minutes and 50 seconds of the allowed 10 minutes before a team member came over and asked if I needed help. For the sale of 10 seconds I could have left without going through an enquiry and still earned the same fee!
Fee = £5.00
Reimbursement = £1.00
Spend = £0.71
Profit/Loss = +£5.29
Mystery Shopping Pub
The second assignment was to a national pub chain to assess service times and levels. The timing was about measuring one thing. This was how long to be served at the bar, brought food and plates cleared. The service was about staff knowledge and friendliness. There’s very, very rarely a reason to mark these pubs down and this assignment isn’t any different.
Fee = £3.25
Reimbursement = £9.75
Spend = £11.18
Profit/Loss = +£1.82
Mystery Shopping Betting Shop
The third assignment is to a bookmakers and this gives me the opportunity to share a little insight of the type of overviews we have to produce for mystery shopping betting shop reports-
“I entered the shop and I was greeted straight away by a team member from behind the counter. I then browsed the floor for approximately five minutes before a team member approached and asked if I was okay. The team member offered me a cup of coffee. I then looked at the betting football coupons before going to the counter to seek help. The team member was helpful and friendly and made conversation about the upcoming England match.”
This is what is called an overview, and it’s where the report wants a commentary on your visit. It’s best to keep details fairly vague here, as you’ll go into more detail in the full report. This is classic mystery shopping for a betting shop requirements. Market Force often have assignments like these so keep an eye on their site.
Fee = £2.75
Reimbursement = £5.00
Spend = £5.00
Profit/Loss = +£2.75
TOTAL = +£9.86 + a tile, lunch for 2 and a free bet (which actually won and made a further £15.50!!!!)
