What is Mystery Shopping?

Mystery shopping, mobile crowdsourcing, secret shopping, retail auditing and so much more. These are all terms meaning nearly the same thing. These are terms used to describe shoppers who have the capability to complete surveys or tasks online or from their phones for a brand or company. In exchange for completing these tasks, you’re typically rewarded in points, gift cards, and other fun rewards.

While this definition may seem straight forward, there is much more to mystery shopping than meets the eye. Whether you’re looking for a new side hustle in your spare time, or you’re looking to earn a few gift cards, the Mobee App has something for you. Learn all there is to know about mobile crowdsourcing in the following post, so you can become a top earner too.

Mystery Shopping as a Side Hustle

Mobile crowdsourcing is a great resource to earn extra money on the side. Many of the top Mobee App users earn hundreds of dollars per month. There are more benefits to mystery shopping than earning cool gift cards, though. As a secret shopper, you’re providing important information to brands and companies that are relying on your insights to make important decisions about products, displays, and so much more.

While completing mystery shopping tasks, you’re given a unique opportunity to help some of your favorite brands and you’ll be able to earn points and gift cards for your time in only minutes. As far as a side hustle goes, it doesn’t get better or easier than that. You don’t even have to go out of your way to complete many of the available Missions. Typically they’re located at popular stores that you may be visiting already anyway.

What is the Big Mystery?

For new mystery shoppers, you may be wondering what the big mystery is. To make a long story short, you’re the mystery piece of mystery shopping. While your answering survey questions, nobody in the store will know that you’re the person completing the Mission. With that in mind, brands and businesses won’t know that you’re the one submitting the information as well. Additionally, you won’t know who the brand or business is that you’re answering survey questions for.

This air of mystery gives you the opportunity to be as honest as possible in each survey to provide the most authentic and accurate information you can at all times. The accuracy and authenticity is the reason mobile crowdsourcing is so popular, and the reason so many Missions are available. Keeping the air of mystery is a key attribute to mystery shopping that can’t be overlooked.
