Jun 9, 2008
Mystery shopping programs have been available and in use since the 1940's, yet most consumers are unaware of their existence or their purpose. Most companies can benefit from the type of service offered by a mystery shopper program as the results provided can be invaluable to the organization as a whole.

Every mystery shopper program will differ slightly, however they all aim to help you to improve your business and increase your sales. A mystery shopper will help you to see whether there are problems within your business and by using the mystery shopper program you will get to see exactly what your customers think about your business.

For instance, if you are the owner of a restaurant but find that customers are dwindling and profit declining, you need to know why. Using a shopper from a mystery shopper program, you will find out exactly the areas of the restaurant that are failing. This could be poor food presentation, improper lighting inside and outside the restaurant, poor service, problems with cleanliness, or even over pricing

As you can see, using a mystery shopping program provides customers with a wonderful opportunity to have the business evaluated from an unbiased shopper. The detail of the reporting is based on the areas you and the market research firm choose, providing you a better understanding of the customer's experience. In most cases, taking the data gathered, analyzing it, and then making appropriate changes will get your business back on track.

One of the main reasons why many businesses fail is because they do not know exactly what it is that they need to change. So by choosing to use a mystery shopper program, you are helping your business by finding out exactly what the customer thinks of how the business is run. By knowing what it is that the customer wants, you can give it to them and make the necessary changes to improve your business and make it more customer-friendly.
