Advantages of Mystery Shopping As a Home Based Business
Written by Casey Trillbar
Mystery shopping is a great job to do for all those who like shopping. It is also considered as one of the best jobs but it is not meant for everyone even though it does not require any special skills or gadgets. A mystery shopper needs to have certain acting skills. Other than that, if you are cut out to be a mystery shopper, then here are some of the advantages that you can enjoy:
1. You can show your creativity when you are opting for this job because in some ways mystery shopping is just like acting. The stage, which is the company’s store, is set up for you and your role as a mystery shopper is also given to you. All you need to do is to carry out your part, whatever is assigned to you. So it provides plenty of opportunities to unleash the creative facet of your nature.
2. This role entails meeting new people and going to new places. Not all mystery shopping jobs need to be done in the same place, so as a mystery shopper, you will get to visit different locations and interact with different employees and people. This type of work is most suitable for outgoing people.
3. You can earn easy money. If you treat the job as just another shopping trip that you are conducting, then the work would be really easy, just like sitting on a couch and counting money. You are paid for something that is not tedious to do, just enjoyable and fun.
4. You get a lot of perks in form of food, services or merchandise. For example if you are working as a mystery shopper to evaluate a spa treatment service, then you will get to enjoy a relaxing massage or more. If you are required to evaluate a fast food establishment then you get to enjoy the food for free. Likewise, there are other goodies that you can get alongside doing your job.
