Bad Economy = More Mystery Shoppers? August 8, 2012

The economy stinks, and it’s not getting better any time soon. I recall when the economy first started going south, my phone was ringing off the hook. Instead of potential clients needing our services, I found myself innundated with calls inquiring about mystery shopping, most notably from those in the real estate and construction markets. Others would call who were recently laid off from their retail job and thought making some side money as a mystery shopper might tide them over.

 

That was a couple of years ago, and the calls have definitely died down. I just came across this article that touches on the very subject, so it made me wonder if those who have been mystery shopping for some time now have seen a decrease in their workload, and if they have, if they think it’s because there’s an increased number of mystery shoppers or clients have to cut back on their mystery shopping programs.

 
What are your thoughts? In the last two years, has your workload changed? If so, why do you think that is? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
