What is Mystery Shopping?
According to the Mystery Shopping Providers Association (MSPA), over 8 million mystery shops or secret shops are conducted each year - giving mystery shoppers multiple opportunities to earn money and provide feedback to major companies and small businesses. Mystery shoppers are typical consumers - like you - who are looking to add a little cash to their holiday spending, save for a cruise or theme park vacation, add to their children's college fun or supplement their retirement income. You can also make a full-time salary as a mystery shopper - but the reality is, it's an honest to goodness fun and convenient way to have a part-time job with home-based business perks. Ultimate Mystery Shopping will provide you with the tools and insider secrets - known ONLY to mystery shopping providers like Market Viewpoint - to help you stand out among the thousands of mystery shoppers around the world.

"I started your book once I finished dinner and couldn't put it down. It is absolutely the greatest. I feel honored to review it. You covered all the bases from new mystery shoppers to season mystery shoppers. I liked the comments in italics before each chapter. You talked about many items, and then had a review at the end of each chapter which you called, "TOP-NOTCH SHOPPER SECRETS." I found this, really, was important, to all of us."

Kim B. of New Hope, Pennsylvania tell us:
"Ultimate Mystery Shopping: Transforming Your Hobby into a Profitable Home-Based Business>is a powerful tool! It's an informative resource that I wish I had access to when I was starting out in the business. Whether you are thinking of starting up your own business as a Mystery Shopper or you are already a tenured mystery shopper, this book can be a great help to you! You will gain insight into how other shoppers manage their time. For example, in Chapter One, "Sandy's Daily Routine" illustrates how Sandy manages mystery shopping along with her daily schedule of tasks that need to be completed each day. This is a fantastic tool! It gives a new shopper a "Sample Schedule" to mirror and a seasoned shopper a possible new perspective on managing their day. The book also gives valuable information about what I call the "Flip Side." It delves into and gives you an understanding of what Mystery Shopping companies are looking for in a shopper and just how they operate. The book enables you to fine tune your skills as a shopper to ultimately be more profitable. I highly recommend Ultimate Mystery Shopping: Transforming Your Hobby into a Profitable Home-Based Business. It's terrific!!!"
