Mystery shoppers are not random, they are trained individuals who need to know specifics of your company. When preparing your mystery shoppers for their work, remember three things.

  1. Avoid too many details. Keep observations general enough that your mystery shopper can remember it all.
  2. Be quick. Enter observations as soon as they’re noticed.
  3. Check collected data regularly.
