Attention Schedulers : I'm in Oklahoma and I need work!

Hello. I'm a shopper in Oklahoma looking for work. I am equipped to do video, audio and written. I'm also willing to travel and take on a route within Oklahoma, as well as surrounding states (Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri). Thank you for considering!

Hmmm... have you been watching the ads posted in this forum for work? Are you registered with very many companies? If so, your email should be over-flowing with offers and job boards should be advertising bonuses...

Hi MFJohnson,

I actually JUST signed up for the forum only a matter of minutes ago. I do get some emails that are of no interest to me. Some times they're like $2 - $15 assignments. I'm more interested in the video and audio shops that pay well. Are you willing to point me in the right direction? Also, I'm in Oklahoma. I don't know if this is a deterrent.


How many companies are you with? They should be emailing you directly. If you are not signed up with over 100 MSC’s, you are not giving yourself the chance to get many shops. Also, since you started posting here, a very valuable thread has been updated that will list video shopping companies. Sign up for them.

How long have you been shopping?

Pay well: you should be aware that, at the end of June, any shop COULD pay well. Between yesterday and today, I’ve done 12 gas stations that are normally $6.00 each for a total of $850.00. (Yes, I have put some miles on my car...)

The key is to be a very reliable shopper for more than a few companies.

I've been shopping for the last 4 months or so. I'm signed up with a few but nothing close to 100. I will make this my focus over the next several days. About the very valuable thread...can you please direct me? I will look for it on my own but I just got here maybe an hour ago and I'm already very pleased smiling smiley I should have been here months ago. Thanks for all the help!!
shopperaye, did you not click on the link in my post above? The link is to Jrossetti's list from the thread MFJ is talking about.
Whoa MFJohnston!!!...Sorry I left the "t" out of your name before. $850?? But that's what I'm looking for. How many miles exactly did you put on your car? How much will you profit in the end? I really need this to pick up and work for me because 1. I like the work and 2. I'm a mom and a full time student that cannot work a 9-5. You all are already so helpful. Thanks!

JASFLALMT, what link are you referring to? The google Docs? If so, then yes...and I am signed up with quite a few of those companies as well smiling smiley I will sign up for the others as well...
I’ll say more when I get home...

Raye -
1. First and foremost, understand that if you are going to make money doing this, you are operating as an independent contractor in charge of your own business. If you are going to succeed, you will have to put in some work. The more time you put in up front learning and signing up with companies, the more quickly you will be able to increase your profits.
2. You want to read the "New Shoppers" area on this forum. It will provide a full overview and a ton of information about mystery shopping.
3. There is a huge list of companies linked below. They are all legitimate. They may or may not currently have work near you, but that could change as clients change MSC's all the time. Plus, there is only one way to find out. I suggest starting with the "15 Most Discussed" companies as they are all larger and are almost certain to have work near you.
4. Though we are reasonably friendly here, keep in mind that we are actually competitors. If you become a successful shopper in Oklahoma, another shopper will lose work and/or have to work for lower fees. This business is pure capitalism and driven by supply-and-demand. So, there are limits to how much "help" most folks are willing to give. Respect those limits. For example, the list of video shopping companies is more than I would have shared.
5. My gas stations.... Here's the deal: You will not likely get deals like that tomorrow. I began working with this particular MSC about two years ago and have completed quite a few shops for them. I have NEVER canceled an assignment and have never had one rejected by them. I have built a reputation with them for being willing to drive out to the boonies to do a shop they are desperate to fill - and they know once it is assigned to me, it will get done. They call me when they are desperate to get something filled and we strike a deal. This is not uncommon for established shoppers..... My profit: Not included in the $850 was $60 in gas reimbursements. I have a car that gets great gas mileage and I figure I burned about $50 in gas over the 600 miles I drove. I spent about $30 more than I would have otherwise in caffeinated beverages and food. (I had three four-shot lattes today...) So, my profit was about $830 minus wear-and-tear on my car.

I hope this helps.

I am an Okie native. Feel free to PM me if you want any local info. There seem to be fewer shoppers in NE Oklahoma/W Arkansas than most other places. Shops get routinely bonused around here, so you shouldn't have any problems making a goid route.
