Earn Extra Money Working From Home, Online, Or Otherwise
In: Mystery Shopping12 May 2012
You can earn extra money by sitting at home and making mystery shop phone calls. This sounds too good to be true, but you can do it, because I’ve done it within the last few months. Mystery shopping can be fun and quite lucrative, but with gas prices at sky-is-the-limit rates, driving around to complete mystery shop assignments can be costly.
Doing phone mystery shops is a way to reduce your gas expenses. Shoppers’ View and Measure Consumer Perspectives, are just two of several reputable mystery shopping companies that offer various types of phone shop assignments every week. There are more companies that I will reveal in future posts.
Every week Shoppers’ View send various types of phone shops to my email inbox. Most of them require you to call a specific business and ask a few questions to inquire about specific services. You do this mainly to rate the company’s customer service over the phone. The actual call itself usually only takes about three to five minutes.
After calling a company, you must fill out a form on Shopper Views’ website to document the results of your call. The form is a summary of the details of your shop. You must provide specific information, such as how long it took for an agent to answer, if the agent followed protocol, and if the agent was knowledgeable enough to answer your questions. The form usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete, depending on how fast you type.
Don’t expect to get rich just doing mystery phone shops. Although I’ve done phone shops that paid $20.00 or more, most of them pay between a range of $2.00 to $12.00 dollars. This is not a lot of money, but if you sign up and request a few shops a week, you can make extra money by doing much of nothing. And if you calculate the cost by the actual time it takes to complete a shop — around 15 minutes — you may see the benefits.
For instance if you do three phone shops for $4.00 dollars each and it takes you 20 minutes to complete each one, you’ve actually made $12.00 dollars in one hour. That’s not bad for sitting at home, making a few phone calls and filling out a few short questionnaires. Of course there are shops that pay more than $4.00, allowing you to make more in less time.
If you want to do phone shops, Shoppers’ View and Measure Consumer Perspectives are two mystery shopping companies that offer them regularly. These companies are reputable, and they pay on time. If you want to earn extra money for upcoming Summer outings, this is one way to do it.
