Don’t worry!! “Mystery shoppers” are the key to unlock this mystery. To know more about mystery shoppers, you have to understand the service called “Mystery shopping”
Every organization needs to maintain its quality of goods and services in order to achieve customer satisfaction as satisfying the customer is the ultimate goal for every business organization. There are many business establishments around us like hotels, grocery stores, restaurants, supermarkets, fast food joints and movie theatres, etc. where providing good customer service is a huge determining factor for its success. This means that customer satisfaction is a key objective for business establishments to survive in the industry.
Mystery shopping relates to this objective by acting as a perfect tool to evaluate the working of a business establishment from a customer’s perspective.
On evaluating the business establishment, the actual state of its working can be realized. If any flaws are found in its operation then steps can be taken by the owner of the business to correct them.
Under this investigative service, mystery shoppers (as per the requirement of the case) are sent to the business establishment (the one which needs to be evaluated) to oversee its operation in all the important areas like staff interaction with customers, the professionalism of the staff members with respect to their job, quality of the commodities on display, qualities of the goods & services sold, the price charged for goods and services from the costumers and staff compliance with other policies and regulations of the business organization.
Mystery shoppers play a crucial role in conducting the overall process of mystery shopping. They are trained to observe and record the significant areas of a business establishment posing as a customer. Their feedback is important to know about a business from the customer’s point of view.
Mystery shoppers are also called secret shoppers. As we can see, this name indicates the nature of their profession and how displaying covert behavior is a huge part of this job.
Mystery shoppers are required to have a keen eye for detail, as it is a very important quality for successfully evaluating a business. Their detail-oriented, honest report about their experience can shed some light on previously hidden factors and help the company to take appropriate measures for improving it.
Good communication skills (both oral & written) are also an important quality possessed by a mystery shopper. A mystery shopper has to interact a lot with the staff of the business establishment as a part of their job and for interacting in a subtle manner without revealing their actual identity, it is important for mystery shoppers to have a good command over their communication skills.
At last, we can say that “mystery shoppers” are perfect to know the mystery behind your business establishment’s service. They can help you to understand the situation of your business from a customer’s point of view and this can be useful for you to take corrective actions for the improvement of your business.
