Let’s make some money in the New Year. First you need to sign up with new or new to you mystery shop companies. Mystery Shop Magazine has a long list of potential companies (Click Here), and I will provide links to companies in this article as well.
Programs, like Last Pass, a password manager help produce unique passwords for each site you become a member and stores them for you. Have your email address (unique to mystery shopping) at hand, Paypal or banking deposit information, and your social security number.
Because you are providing personal information, I garner as much security as possible with a 10 or 12 digit password. This is also why my Paypal account and mystery shopping accounts have a separate email address so I can track them. It is ideal for tax purposes as well.
Keeping your profiles with each mystery shop company current assures you get more job opportunities, and quicker payments.
Some companies require a writing sample, and extended profiles with your demographic information. The writing sample should be current without including company names or employers. Restaurant mystery shops are generally the most descriptive.
It is in your best interest to be MSPA Certified. Companies will chose you over other shoppers and the process provides up to date information about the mystery shopping industry.
Mystery shop companies will require a face photo and/or Driver’s License scan be ready to furnish them. Make sure it is a face photo only. Do not include pets, family members or other aspects of your personal life.
The process of filling out profiles for mystery shop companies can take hours, but it is well worth your time. Do it correctly and it will give you job opportunities and work for you throughout 2019.
