Celebrate 100 Issues of Mystery Shopper Magazine

I’m pleased and excited to announce the 100th issue of Mystery Shopper Magazine. We’ve now been around for over two years, and we’ve accomplished quite a bit.

  • We’ve published 160 reviews of mystery shopping companies. A big part of our mission is to help mystery shoppers connect with the best mystery shopping companies. That’s why review a company in every issue.
  • We’ve published 26 profiles of Mystery Shoppers. This is my favorite part of our magazine. We get to share and learn about the experiences of other shoppers, shining light on what it’s like to be a shopper, in the field.
  • We’ve featured 62 Mystery Shopping Assignments giving our readers insight into how to succeed with each assign
  • We’ve interviewed schedulers, editors, CEOs and mystery shoppers. If you want a broad perspective on the industry, this collection of interviews gives you insight from nearly every angle.

We’ve published a lot more than what I’ve highlighted here.

When I first created this magazine, I said we’d be around a long time. We plan to publish many more issues. It’s been a great journey so far. None of it would have been possible without the many mystery shoppers who have written for the magazine: Ceridwin, James Bond 007.5, Agent 99, Dspeakes, Stilllearning, vlade5394, Paul Lamb, Cettie, CureMs, Jaymo, Mdavisnowell, and many others.

In addition, none of this would be possible without the support of the Mystery Shop Forum community.

As we look forward to the next 100 issues, the industry is still undergoing big changes. In the past two years we’ve seen the rise of mobile shopping apps, many mergers/acquisitions, and even the end of more than one mystery shopping company. We hope to cover these continuing changes in the future, while still focusing on our core mission: To make life easier for every mystery shopper.

Thank you for reading and supporting Mystery Shopper Magazine. I hope you find it to be a valuable service.
