Are You Going?

shoppingWork from home. Independent Contractor. Flexible Schedule. Get paid to eat, shop, bank….

One of these phrases or something similar likely caught your attention at some point to attract you to mystery shopping.

It intrigued you and the thought of ‘being your own boss’ or ‘running your own business’ or ‘working independently’ may have resonated with you. Soon you were clicking around on line signing up with multiple companies, joining mystery shopping Facebook groups, and following your favorite schedulers on Twitter.

If you are an assertive shopper who is serious about this business, you scan the boards for shops each day, learn new skills, try new shops and ask for feedback on your reports from the editors and schedulers so as to learn about their expectations.

But even with all of the on line interaction, you still may miss real interaction with people in your industry!

Fear not! In the upcoming weeks, there is a great opportunity for you to connect with shoppers from all over the country!

  1. I will be going to the Conference. I am a shopper for two years and I look forward to go to my first ShpperFest. The three things I would be doing.,First to meet the fellow shoppers and learn from their experience what to do, what not to do, the second thing is to talk to shopping companies owners, scheduler, editors and other personnel. Put some faces behind the names I work with and find what they expect from us, the shoppers. Find out, how we shoppers can be more helpful to achieve the common goal of serving the customer as a team. The third thing is to attend few talks so that it would make the job easy and more efficient.
