Would you like to get more mystery shopper jobs? Here are some tips to help you get all the work you can handle.
Most importantly, when you get an assignment, do a great job. Do the shop on time, according to the guidelines, and submit a well-written report. Schedulers love to give assignments to shoppers on whom they can depend.
Apply to as many companies as possible. Just like you can’t win the lottery if you do not buy a ticket, you can not get assignments if you are not in the data base. (Of course, you should never pay a fee to apply anywhere.)
Use http://www.Jobslinger.com/ to find assignments in your area. Even if you do not land a particular mystery shopper job, you can find more companies that have clients where you like to shop.
Don’t forget to apply to scheduling companies. They have assignments from many companies.
Communicate with schedulers. Don’t be a pest, but say thank you when you get your first assignment, or an especially good assignment. Let them know if you are available to handle last-minute shops. Schedulers are always happy to find shoppers who can pick up assignments others have flaked on.
Getting MSPA certified can help. Certified shoppers may be offered many assignments before other shoppers.
Try something new. If you think you would never do a bank shop, an apartment shop, a video mystery shop, a reveal shop, or some other type of mystery shopper job, why not try just one? You may find that they are more enjoyable than you expected. If so, you have opened up many new opportunities for yourself.
The same goes for other types of work, such as merchandising, demos, surveys, audits, etc. Making yourself available for assignments other than mystery shopping can provide more consistent income, as well as more income overall.
Be available. If you have little time to mystery shop, or you will not make an effort to fit a last-minute assignment into your schedule, you will have fewer opportunities. How to use your time is a choice only you can make, based on what is right for you.
