One of the most fun things that I have started doing is mystery shopping. Sure, you are not able to mystery shop full time and become an instant millionaire, but it is definitely an easy way to earn some extra cash while doing the shopping that you were going to do anyway. The next few days, I will speak on some of the companies that I have been working with as well as how to join.
WHO IS EPMS?Ellis Partners in Management Solutions (EPMS), is one of the most respected marketing consulting services and also a provider of executive-level management. This company provides apartment mystery shopping services as well as resident surveys. They assist managers and apartment communities to survey their resident expectations and opinions as well as rate and review the physical look of the property and the performance of their leasing consultants. They also provide training and seminars to their customers to help enhance their overall performance.
I am an apartment mystery shopper with EPMS. When I sign in, I am able to see different assignments based on my geographic area. I am then able to pick up assignments (which are dependent on your skill level with them) and assist the customers with critique and an honest review. A majority of the properties that I have shopped are apartment communities where you have to shop a specific leasing agent and grade their performance. You are also expected to be very observant to rate the actual look of the property.
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH EPMS?
DO YOU REALLY MAKE MONEY?Yes, with this company you really do make money. It does take a little bit of time to complete the reports and do the shops properly and on average it can take between one to two hours to submit everything properly. BUT! If you are patient and thorough, it is definitely worth it. On average, you are paid $30 for each property visit, but depending on the time of the month or difficulty of the shop bonuses are added frequently. You are paid once a month on the 22nd of the month for all shops done prior to the 7th. For example, the last shop that I completed was on June 20th. The $30 owed to me will be direct deposited on July 22nd.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?You can sign up through their website http://www.epmsonline.com then click on "Become a Shopper". You can also follow >> this link << directly to the sign up application page. They will only pay through direct deposit, so paypal is not allowed. Also, it is currently only available in the USA.
Remember, when signing up for a mystery shopping website, always do your own research! Just because it is on the internet doesn't mean it is real! Please leave your comments or feel free to email me if you need any assistance!
