A mystery shopping experience sample – easy when you know how!

By on March 5, 2018 0 193 Views

I have carried out what must be two of the easiest mystery shops of my life today. And I thought I’d use these to show you a mystery shopping experience sample and how it would work for you. They were both simple purchases made and all I really had to remember was the name and description of the person who served me. Customer service is often in the news. This is the beauty of mystery shopping sometimes as you get to carry out fun assignments that don’t take up a lot of time. This is a mystery shopping experience sample that will show you how easy it can be to make money mystery shopping.

There were other parts to the mystery shop such as was the place clean and we’re team members wearing a uniform but these are general points that are really easy to remember at the point of completing the report. The reports is what you fill out when you get back home and often there are large parts of it that you will remember as a matter of course. The general impressions of a place are still there in your mind. They will be there when you get home and are asked to reflect on them.

Mystery shopping can be an easy way to make some extra money and pick up some free stuff. Today I made enough money to pay for the petrol I used to get there and back, a few pounds for my time and I got –

  • A pack of toilet rolls
  • A tube of toothpaste
  • A pack of toothbrushes
  • Curry, side dishes and drinks for two

A mystery shopping experience sample and what it means for you

Maybe not the most glamorous of shopping trips. But all of this was paid for by someone else (in fact by two different mystery companies) and it was somewhere I was going anyway. This is the beauty of mystery shopping. This mystery shopping experience sample shows you how you can make money. Many of the possibilities will be in one of your local towns, cities or shopping centres. There is a good chance you will be visiting these places anyway.

Mystery shopping reports can look daunting when you first start out but they are not difficult. In many reports there may be up to 70 questions. But often the vast majority will be simple yes/no clicks of a button and move on. The reports today took me around 6 minutes combined. Add this to the visits and this was an easy way to make money and get free stuff. It is best practice to take a copy of the report with you so you can complete it as soon as you leave. That way you can record all the important details. And on occasion even possibly go back and check again if you need to. A mystery shopping experience sample will help you to blueprint how to earn from mystery shopping.

In these cases, it was a simple, task to first read the instructions. I could then break it down into the most important elements –

  • The service given
  • The questions I will be asked
  • Essential elements that must be assessed

From there, I could print the report and double check just before I went in. You should follow this if you are to be a successful mystery shopper.
