Mystery shopping Canada agencies are a relatively new phenomenon in the business world that have come about over the last 25 years or so. The undercover shopper industry is fairly new, gaining in popularity only within the last 15 years or so and snowballing into the empire that we see it as today. Because of the nature of the work and results that speak for itself in business, there has been a huge surge in companies that are thrown together to provide this service in the last ten years.
Many companies fall short of their goal of providing excellent service and end up failing. Those are the companies that we would do well to steer clear of. There are some companies that have staying power, however, and it is absolutely worth our time and effort to dig those companies out from underneath the pile and hook up with them, whether we consider this job as a moonlighting opportunity or we decide to make our livelihood out of it.
The best shopping agencies sometimes look just like all of the rest of them. Most of them promise big things to their evaluators, but we cannot always go by what a company proposes to be true. For sure, there have been companies that were based not in integrity, but in greed, that have told people exactly what they wanted to hear only to shut their virtual doors a month later, several thousands of dollars richer, and at out expense. Finding the best companies to work for comes with time, and with a diligent eye. The longer we are in this business, the easier it becomes to verify the intentions of a company.
Participation in forums and other communities that are centered around the industry and the agencies that we have an opportunity to work for gives us all kinds of wonderful feedback, both positive and negative, that can help point us in the right direction when it comes to getting ourselves some jobs lined up each week. After all, we are the responsible ones; we are the freelancers who are not only setting our own schedule, but also choosing which companies to accept assignments from. We have to be discerning and brutally honest with ourselves and continually ask whether or not the companies that we are working for are worth working for again.
It helps if we have time, at least in the beginning, to try out assignments from as many mystery shopping Canada jobs s as we can. Variety gives us a much broader view of what we are including in our business, and of whom. When we excel at our jobs, providing high quality evaluations and absolutely perfect reports, submitted on time and with no fuss, we are setting ourselves up for bigger and better assignments, giving ourselves great references to use later on.
Starting small, picking crumbs from the ground if we must, we are able to at least get our foot in the door with agencies that are well known for their quality assignments and their higher paying jobs. Once you get your big toe in, work for them, and work well. Take the little jobs, do the assignments that make most seasoned shoppers groan. Do what it takes to show your loyalty to their efforts and you will be rewarded. Quality is something that runs through every level of an industry. Let it start with you.
