Why Is Mystery Shopping Worth It?

You’re competing daily to stand out for all the right reasons and win business. But the road is paved with pesky competition. So, you need to ensure you’re consistently delivering the most compelling client journey possible to achieve these goals.

Mystery shopping goes beyond any reporting that you can pull together in-house. When I provide mystery shopping services to our hotel, venue and event clients, I drill down in to –

· What your team is doing well and needs to be doing more of

· What your team could be doing better

· Recommendations of how you can get better results

How do I come to these conclusions? I take a deep dive over a pre-agreed period of time in to a broad mix of enquiry types and mediums, based on your business specifics and objectives.

But this is no cloak and dagger exercise for spying on your team. It’s a powerhouse for identifying and drilling down into any areas of underperformance that are potentially losing you money. And knowledge is power.
