Musings on MarketForce

...I've been impressed with this company named MarketForce. I don't remember exactly how I came across them but they they have a great presence on the web and offer work in all kinds of different fields such as:

Mystery shopping



Panel Research


In Store Audits

As much as I can, I like to try to pick up a job or two with a company or find someone who has so I can pass along legitimate work opportunities to you all.

Well, this past week, I applied for a couple of jobs with Marketforce (as an Independent contractor) and I was very pleased with the results. Not only did someone get back to me quickly, she was also very friendly, helpful and professional.

The job was simple....

It was simply going into a grocery store and keeping the fresh flower display up to date. The pay was pretty paltry, at $8.00 a visit but it was 5 minutes down the street and I figured I could
kill two birds with one stone and pick up some groceries for that night's dinner.

In the course of my conversation with the company rep, however, she let me know that she had a couple of other grocery stores that she needed help with and would I be interested in taking those on as well?

I really wasn't interested but I didn't tell her that right away, instead I let her know that those stores were a little distance away from me and I didn't think it would be worth my while to drive all the way out there for $8.00 a visit.

Here's where our conversation got interesting. She asked... how much could she pay me to make it worth my while?

When I hemmed and hawed, she told me point blank that she was not allowed to make me an offer, that I had to tell her how much I wanted and then we can go from there.

I made up a number... $20.00 and she quickly jumped in and said that was no problem.

Then I wished I had asked for $40.00.


My point?

A lot of these mystery shops start out with really lousy pay but if you get in good with schedulers or company reps they can really hook you up.

So don't discount those mystery shops,
especially this time of year (with the holidays right around the corner) because companies like MarketForce are really hungry for shoppers who can do this work for them.

I like to think of it as a great way to save up for a special vacation or pay off credit card debt.

Just set the money aside and watch it accumulate. After a while, you'd be surprised at how much that money adds up and how quickly!

Marketforce is listed by the Mystery Shopping Provider's association (MSPA) as a certified mystery shopping company, which is a definite plus. I love that they called me the day before my assigned job date to make sure I was ready to go and to check for any questions I had. That is very rare thing for a mystery shopping company to do. All in all, like I said , I've been impressed!
