Managing Your Mystery Shopping Schedule

Mystery shopping jobs often allow us to accept more tasks at a time in order to maximize what we earn. Usually, we can accept two or three jobs at a given time, so long as we are able to keep up with the deadline and submit complete and useful reports. Mystery shopping companies, such as Market Viewpoint, can help supply shoppers with multiple jobs at a time – so really it is up to the shopper how much they want to earn and work.

However, when it comes to accepting more tasks, it is very crucial to have a schedule that helps you to keep up with all of your tasks and jobs. Therefore, organizing all your mystery shopping tasks using a schedule is essential to keep your tasks manageable and on the right track.

Below are some tips on how you can organize your schedule for your mystery shopping assignments:

  • Have a clear calendar or daily to do list where you are able to jot down and establish when you need to visit a particular establishment, do the report, and submit the final analysis. Assign a day for a visit to one establishment or if other establishments are near the area, you can also schedule a visit to that establishment on the same day – just be sure to keep your notes separate. Also schedule when you need to do your report for each assignment!
  • Do not wait for the due date to submit your report! Mystery shopping companies accept and also appreciate early submission of reports. Procrastination is the enemy of a mystery shopper as it leads to lackluster, rushed reports.
  • Schedule your assignments as early as possible. By the time you accepted a certain assignment, schedule it the earliest time possible. This will give you time allowances to push to a later date in case something else come up. This will also give you more time to accept last minute tasks that other shoppers have been unable to accept, giving you more credit as a reliable shopper and income simultaneously!
  • Include simple details on your schedule. If your scheduler wants you to report as soon as you have visited an establishment, set it in your schedule so you will not fall short in following ALL necessary instructions.

A mystery shopping job requires flexibility and on-time accomplishment of given assignments. Make sure to always keep up with your schedule to make your mystery shopping jobs more successful.
