Got 5 seconds? Yes, of course you do! Take this time to improve your Mobee work product. Mystery shopping is like any job. It takes effort and, at times, mini-tweaks that make a big difference.
Clean Your Camera Lens
Common sense. Right? But, in the past, I bet you had at least one rejected Mobee mission because of unclear photos. Dirty camera lenses (generally) are the cause of this scenario. Be proactive. With clean tissue, swipe this part of your phone prior to snapping a photo.
Take Wide-Angled Photos
Mobee and other mystery shopping apps increasingly ask for wide-angled photos. Why? These types of pictures capture an object and its surroundings better than portrait photos. So, get into the habit of doing them automatically. It only requires flipping your phone horizontally and taking photos from that angle.
Step Out of the Car Right Away
Avoid: overthinking the mission, texting a friend, singing a radio song, eating a snack. You get the drift. These behaviors waste time and act as distractions. After parking your car, get out and go into the store.
Look at the Example Photo
A picture tells a thousand words. An awesome aspect of Mobee missions is that most include example photos. They set a target for you to hit. Be sure to look at each one linked to a question.
Bypass a Crowded Aisle
This last one takes practice. When a product is on an aisle crowded with people, don’t wait longer than 5 seconds for them to leave. People are unpredictable. Instead, move onto the next couple of tasks. Go back afterward to complete the mission. Usually, the same aisle will be empty.
The above tips take 5 seconds or less. Use them and boost your quality of work. Change is easy when made in small increments.
