What is mystery shopping, you ask? The idea is that companies want to know what’s really happening in their retail stores, restaurants, and other establishments, so they pay mystery shoppers to go in and evaluate their experiences, while acting like a regular customer. The “mystery” is that the companies being evaluated don’t know about it. Well, their managers and owners know and are paying to have an evaluation done, but they don’t know which customer is the one doing the actual assignment. The employees do not know if or when a mystery shopper is coming. That’s where YOU step in!

This course includes videos, worksheets, and tons of resources to help you register with mystery shopping companies, get assignments, and get paid to shop! Whether you want a side-job that pays you for fun or a legitimate full-time job, this course will help you reach your goals and includes the following modules:
