How To Get Mystery Shopping Jobs

Work From Home: How To Be a Mystery Shopper

Who wouldn't like to get paid to shop? It's great fun! OK, maybe it's not going to get you into the rich list overnight, but who wouldn't want to have extra money for going shopping?

So What Is A Mystery Shopper?

Mystery shoppers (or secret shoppers as they are also called) are paid to go into businesses like stores, hotels and restaurants and then report on their experience. And they get paid for it! Good mystery shoppers can make a very nice income for very little work Only a few secret shoppers make a full-time job out of it. But you're doing things you like and are probably going to be doing anyway, so why not get paid for it?

When you're out shopping, why not get your car washed for free? Your coffee and cake paid for? Buy some chocolate. Try on clothes. Have a haircut. Have a manicure. Plus you get refunded for the things you've bought AND get paid for your time. What's not to like?

Do Mystery Shopping Companies Really Pay You To Go Shopping?

YES! The jobs I mentioned above are real jobs that we have sent our secret shoppers to do. That's right: I run a secret shopping company. It's called Shadow Shopper That's how I know. And if you want to check out how much money some of our shoppers make see the payslips at the bottom of this page. Shadow Shopper covers Australia. In the US and the UK, there are also lots of companies.

Do ALL Mystery Shoppers Make Lots of Money?

Sadly, no. Most mystery shoppers don't make a lot of money at all. But the good news is that you CAN make money. All you need are the inside secrets so that you don't make the mistakes other people do. You can be one of the successful ones! There's no reason why you too can't make good money working from home - not to mention having free haircuts, carwashes, coffees, meals, and other great stuff.

How Do I Know All About Mystery Shoppng?

Good question. Time I introduced myself. I'm Heather, a Director of Shadow Shopper. That's me below. I started the company in 2004, and we've been mystery shopping all kinds of businesses since then. We have over 45,000 secret shoppers, so I know all about what makes a good shopper and who gets the jobs!

Don't Make The Mistakes Most Mystery Shoppers Make!

What amazed me was that they didn't even know they were doing it! Let me explain. They want to work from home, think that secret shopping is a good idea so they apply. Some go on to earn lots of money, others get a few jobs and others none at all. What makes the difference? What are they doing wrong?

At First I Was Surprised

That's putting it mildly! Actually, I was completely stunned. I couldn't believe what mystery shoppers put in their applications and their reports. And then they wondered why they didn't get jobs? Sometimes I couldn't believe my eyes!

Then I Thought 'How Can I Help?'

I realised that people didn't mean to do the wrong thing, just that they didn't know the right thing to do. So I decided to help.

I wrote a book, giving all the inside information so that they knew what to do to become a big success! And here is is: Inside Mystery Shopping. I wrote it all myself, every single word! It's the real deal. It tells you everything: How to know who to work for (some companies are shonky - sad but true), how to apply, how to do the assignments, how to write the reports.

Working From Home
How To Get Lots Of Secret Shopper Jobs

Working from home is a dream for most people, and secret shopping is one way you can have the dream job. Here are some tips:

  • Work for several (good) companies

  • Know which jobs to accept.

  • Be a great mystery shopper

So why do these tips work?

  • Most companies limit how much an individual shopper can earn, so work for several companies. If you worked for 4 companies and you were a top-notch mystery shopper then you could earn $800+ a week for a few hours work

  • There's a big difference between jobs that pay $96 per hour, and jobs which actually leave you out of pocket! You need to know which jobs to accept and which to pass up. Why should you pay someone to work for them?

  • 99% of shoppers don't get to the 'fast lane'. They have a few jobs, but don't make real money. They don't know HOW to be a great mystery shopper. That's what I can teach you. That's why I wrote Inside Mystery Shopping!

She Thought All She Had To Do Was Sign Up

But it's not enough. For every successful mystery shopper there are 99 mystery shoppers who wonder why they don't get jobs.

Who wait for the jobs, but they don't come. Who check their email constantly, but no jobs.

Shoppers who don't like feeling like they have failed, but don't know what to do to be a success.

The jobs are out there. Lots and lots of jobs. So how do you get them?

It's Like Playing a Game Where You Don't Know The Rules

Trying to be a successful mystery shopper without knowing how mystery shopping companies work is like trying to dance when you can't hear the music.

You have no idea what they are looking for. Sure, they will tell you general information and they may have a training program and certification test. But most shoppers who pass all this still don't get jobs. Why? What aren't they telling you?

Get Yourself An Unfair Advantage : Get Inside Information

It's true. Most successful mystery shoppers have had help. Inside information. That's how they know what to do to get all the jobs.

Yes, it's unfair. Some people are in on the secrets, can get the jobs and make the money. Others don't, and wait for jobs that don't come. But now you too can find out the secrets and you can have the unfair advantage!
