From The Desk Of B. Robert
“Mystery Shopping Sites that are
‘Not the Whole Truth”.
“It is so..
frustrating for me to see some individual sites promote MYSTERY SHOPPER information that misleads the consumer;
and for a price not worthy of its value.”
Not Exactly Mystery Shopping ‘Scams’ Websites!
Once again, I find it necessary to write about certain sites that are not exactly mystery-shopping ‘scams’ websites, yet they stretch the truth in their overall sales page and charge an unacceptable fee rate for information that a consumer can obtain free or at much lower prices.
It is so frustrating to see how some individual sites promote content misleading the consumer.
I am, absolutely appalled at their deceitful approach that is presented to the unaware person who may be considering becoming a Mystery Shopper.
Firstly, I will not provide the exact links or names for the reason, I am sure, I would be sued.
Nevertheless, sites of this type not only mislead a potential Mystery-Shopper; but also charge outrageously high fees for products that include freely available information.
The best way for an unaware consumer to comprehend what I am contrary to is to provide an exact scenario description of some websites; and how they are deceiving an uninformed consumer who is searching the internet for information and companies that hire contractors to complete mystery-shopping assignments.
These types of sites begin their pitch with an approach styled to gain a consumers trust by actually discussing many other websites on the internet offering information and names of companies that hire Mystery Shoppers.
Usually, their first heading and beginning paragraph is something like; “Warning, read our information prior to purchasing Mystery Shopping products”; or somewhat to that effect in wording.
Or, for example, It can read something close to this type of wordage, “Learn the Truth About Mystery Shoppers and Mystery Shopping Companies”.
Now, I am not quoting the sites exactly. I am simply summarizing the content on its pages
The websites start out defining what a mystery shopper is and what is included when mystery shopping.
The paragraphs continue advising a reader that their site has researched, contacted and evaluated many companies that are unqualified for representation on their site as a reputable business.
In the next paragraph’s they proceed to mention a few that they have found to be reputable in information and products.
However, after my careful review I noticed that the links on their sites to what they designate as reputable companies are all products you must purchase at very high costs for value.
Disturbingly, the links are representative of affiliate linking; thereby enabling this site a portion payment of what consumers purchase.
I only wish to make mention of sites such as these for the reason that I emphasize to consumers that they should never pay for listings of mystery shopping companies hiring contractors to complete secret shops.
This information is freely visible on many mystery shopper groups, lists and mystery shopping company online boards.
I do, however, recommend purchasing additional information in manuals, ebooks, and books to learn
more about the mystery shopping industry and the inside information to assist you in understanding and any supportive discernment relative to this industry.
I do not recommend spending too much on your first book or informational product, if you are new to mystery shopping.
I suggest anyone who is just learning about this industry spend no more than $19.95 on his or her initial purchase.
It is not necessary to spend more than this amount; and, $19.95 is actually pricey enough!
The initial information you purchase should include a list for many mystery- shopping companies; list groups and where you can register to sign up for assignments.
The more I research and find high pricing for mystery shopper information, the more I become exasperated at the fees charged for this FREE INFORMATION.
I can understand shoppers desire to buy a concise and clear understanding; and well organized subject matter product to allow greater conception in the industry and about the companies, including tips and techniques provided by those that are expertise in consumer undercover shopping.
Nonetheless, I cannot accept or disregard the outright abuse in price manipulation for consumers simply trying to learn more about earning extra income as a mystery shopper.
For this very reason, I plan to write, publish and provide the important information available for a small price to cover my expenses to promote and sell it.
The cost should range from $7.95 to $9.95 and hopefully less.
If you would like to receive notification when I have my information available, please sign up by contacting me.
I will comprise all companies, lists, groups and information necessary to start and or learn more about working as a proficient Mystery Shopper, including the tips and techniques to earn more income and become a competent undercover consumer shopper.
To Be Continued …..
