    Make money on your terms with mystery shopping and gigging

    What is mystery shopping?

     

    Businesses need feedback. YOUR feedback. And they're willing to pay for it!

     

    Mystery shopping is a form of contract work where people like yourself work with market research companies to gather customer feedback on businesses. This feedback can range anywhere from how a store looks to the quality of its customer service and products or the efficiency of its business processes. Mystery shopping can literally take place in any industry and anywhere -- from in person, to over the phone or on the web.

     

    In a nutshell, it covers everything you likely already tell your friends about a business or product you either had an AWESOME or AWFUL experience with!

    How does mystery shopping work?

     

    Dine, visit or shop. Gather the requested information. Report your findings. Get paid.

     

    Contracted mystery shoppers are issued assignments called "shops". Each shop comes with a "shop description" that highlights various guidelines and requests for the mystery shopper to fulfill. Though details can vary, the overall task is to engage with salespeople while remaining discreet about the overall purpose of your visit.

     

    In short, you shop, dine or chat as you would on an average day, snap a couple photos or videos, then answer a few follow up questions to report your experience.

    What about gigging?

     

    Your resources. Your schedule. On your terms.

     

    Gigging is a type of freelance work where a person provides a service in various industries. Though the service may be offered through a specific platform or company, all service providers are considered independent contractors and are therefore self-employed. Much like mystery shopping, there is the opportunity to work as little or as much as desired. Some of the more common gigging companies are Uber and Uber Eats, Lyft, Postmates, AirBnB, TaskRabbit and Amazon Flex.
