Market Force is one of the most well-known mystery shopping companies around. They hold a high level of respect in not only the shopper’s eyes but also to the many mainstream brands and businesses that do business with them.
Market Force is the first place I check when I am ready to do a little mystery shopping to make some money and also get out of my house!
I have chosen to create a Vlog about Market Force. The reason being is that it is a bit easier to explain the process of mystery shopping by talking than it is for me to write it out. I have been asked so many times to explain mystery shopping and I just never hit the mark, and I always feel as though I am struggling to give mystery shopping any justice.
So, be sure to watch the video and some of the basics about Market Force will also be explained below.
