Mystery Shopping

To know exactly what your customers want or feel about your business lies at the core of all businesses. But this is an uphill struggle, to monitor your product's visibility, promotion and pricing across retail outlets. Mystery shopping shows the true reflection of customer service of an organization. Sending your own people to conduct reviews makes the purpose and objective of conducting reviews irrelevant. When your staff conducts a secret review, no matter how well you disguise this news it will most definitely get circulated through formal and informal channels within your organization. A third party always brings perspective in credibility to the reports and employees see it as a motivating factor to perform better. And moreover, Mystery review programs become most effective when the results are directly tied to employee appraisals. The process of mystery shopping is as simple as 1-2-3.

  1. It can be conducted in the most simplest of means - a telephone call, website survey or a store visit.
  2. It involves observing pre-decided set of things very sharply and an eye out on any unethical conduct.
  3. Writing about them in a detailed questionnaire after the assignment.
