ARTICLE - Increasing your Chance of Being Assigned a Mystery Shop.

Our Programme Co-ordinators deal with thousands of mystery shop applications every month. Unless we know a shopper well, your application sits amongst the huge number of other applications we get for the same mystery shop. This article explains how you can increase your chance of getting a mystery shop that you have applied for.

The first step is to find an assignment that you would like to do. So head to the 'Assignment Board' in the menu on the left-hand side of the screen. Click on 'View Assginment', like below.

From here you will be able to see the instructions that you will need to follow in order to complete the assignment. Please give these a good read through. When you are happy, on the right-hand side you will see two fields that need to be filled out. 

Please select the date that you plan to make the visit.

Followed by adding some information about why you would be a good fit for the opportunity.

Please remember, that simply tying in 'I can do this' will not help us decide who the best person for the assignment is. Instead, let us know that you have read the brief, perhaps by summarising what you need to do for the shop.

Use this box for special requests too. For example, if you are able to do the shop only if you are being allocated another shop that is nearby, please let us know as that would help us in our allocation. Likewise, if you would like a phone call from the Programme Co-ordinator before you start the shop, type it in here. We are more than happy to give you a call to ensure you understand every aspect of the mystery shop.
