Becoming an efficient mystery shopper is no big deal but it is certainly not as easy a task as it seems to be. Experts from WeMark believe that secret shopping is a slightly tricky task and demands a bit of smartness.
A lot of people take this task for granted and leave their assignments incomplete. This is highly unprofessional and it is a sign of an irresponsible mystery shopper. Almost around 25% of mystery shopper tasks, accepted by shoppers, remain incomplete and needs to be reassigned to somebody else. This causes a lot of trouble and confusion for the companies who deal into mystery shopping. So an important step to become an efficient mystery shopper is to work with a commitment to complete the task assigned to you.
You must be confident enough to speak to an employee of any shop or store, without revealing your identity as a secret shopper. The most effective way is to remain calm and normal while speaking to any storekeeper or employee.
Another thing to keep in mind is to write all the relevant points in your report by recalling your experience during the shopping. With experience you would certainly become better and better so try to take as many assignments as possible.
Many secret shoppers tend to avoid contacting the company in case of any doubt or confusion and this leads to even more confusion. So whenever you feel the need to seek any guidance, do not hesitate in contacting the company as they would be happy to help you.
