The Perfect Work-At-Home Job: I Found It! You Can Too!
By Melanie Jordan

Want your work to fit your life, not the other way around? Want to work at home and earn money on your own schedule? Then mystery shopping is your "Perfect Work-At-Home Job"! Forget everything you've heard about mystery shopping, there is good, work-at-home money to be made. You can learn how to become a professional mystery shopper who is in high demand, earning top money, not free hamburgers.

The internet has changed this industry, and made becoming a mystery shopper easier than ever before. Mystery shopping can play a role in supplementing your income (or lack of) while you work on getting to where you really want to be. Or it can simply be good steady money that fits in with the life you lead.

If there is a good demand for mystery shoppers in your area, it Is entirely possible to make up to $1,000 in a month's time in actual cash and high-end freebies depending upon the types of assignments you do. Make money when you want to on your terms, and don't when you have other things to do!

Plus, while you can earn nice money on a regular basis, you can also get lots of things for free that you might otherwise have to pay for out of your own pocket. By doing mystery shopping, you can actually make your household budget go further, and possibly get to do things (like go out to a fancy restaurant), you would not otherwise get to do as often, with someone else footing the bill.

Just in case you didn't know, here's what a mystery shopper does. Basically, depending upon the type of shop or research assignment, a mystery shopper, secret shopper, researcher, or most commonly referred to as simply "shopper", will pretend in a believable fashion without giving away the fact they are a shopper, to be an actual customer or potential customer of a business. In the process, the shopper will gather information and make observations that the client company wants to know about, and submit a report with their objective findings later.

You may be asked to pretend you are looking for an apartment; interested in joining a gym; looking for cell phone service; or even considering buying a piano. Your job may be to rent a video; bring your car in for an oil change; have a meal; have a drink at a bar; go grocery shopping; etc. You could be asked to call a mail order house and evaluate its service, or even to check out a company's web site and see how easy you find it to use.

Almost any type of business-big or small, well-known chain or not can use mystery shopping services. The types of shops you do can be as varied as you like, or you may decide to specialize only in certain kinds based upon your own personal preferences and the pay or work involved.
