I'M NEW, Who's your favorite?

Hi everyone! I'm enjoying the forum so much. My one question is who is your favorite company to shop for?

Also Fun Fact: An elephant can never have all 4 feet off the ground!

Welcome Mandy! I love Alta Research and many others. It tends to change a lot.

Elephants can't jump?
Thanks for your reply!

And exactly, elepants cannot jump! Also rhinoceroses and hippopotamuses cannot jump, though unlike elephants, when they run it is possible for them to have all four feet off the ground.
Bare, Coyle, Sentry, Mercantile, ACL, Albatross. Thanks for the fun fact smiling smiley welcome to the forum!
Mercantile, Service Sense, Trend Source, Customer Impact and ones that pay quickly....I'll watch out for the elephant in the room.

Live consciously....
whoever is giving me the most work at the current time. Right now thats IPSOS. My favorites as consistent work over several years and good to deal with are Bare, Northfork Research, HS Brands, SPG, and SeeLevelHX.

Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.

I love the way think. ,

Based in MD, near DC
Shopping from the Carolinas to New York
Have video cam; will travel

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
Customer Experience Experts is probably my favorite; the owner is fantastic! There a few more I really enjoy, but they don't have many shops in my area: ACE, Anonymous Insights, and SPG.

For a beginner or someone who doesn't like a lot of narrative, Market Force can be a great MSC to work with, but they don't pay well until you've done a few shops and can get bonuses.

I learn something new every day, but not everyday!
I've learned to never trust spell-check or my phone's auto-fill feature.

Buffalo, I agree, my favorites are always the companies with the most consistent work. I like to stay busy.

I like Second to None

I rarely see shops from them in my area.

If you don't mind my asking, what types of shops do they have that you like from them? Not asking for client names, of course! smiling smiley
Trend Source and Market Force are my go-to companies, OP.

I get groceries from Trend Source and eat out through Market Force.

I probably shop them the most and feel I get the most value from them.
Welcome Mandy! There are lots of great companies, others have made great suggestions for specific companies. Look at this forum’s list of companies as a reference to get started signing up. Start with the most discussed companies (they tend to have shops all over) and try lots of different shops to see what you like and what plays to your strengths. Once you have done a few or a bunch of shops for a company, they many contact you and offer you shops, usually at a bonus, which is negotiable. Aim high, even if this is your part time fun job. Have fun!
@shoptastic..second to none in my area has video game shops,pizza shops and lab draw shops..they used to have cable shops that I enjoyed a bunch but they no longer shop them...

At the moment my favorite companies are
Bare
Ann michaels
Quams
Kss
Hs international
Reality Check


I like Intellishop alot too but opinions of them swing wildly from one person to the next..

I'm a new shopper for Jm ridgeway and customer impact so no opinion on them yet...

Shopping Idaho and Oregon/Idaho border region.
The prime factor for me is the work:pay ratio. Although I usually grade pay on cash, I do, on occasion, consider reimbursement. Secondarily, I look at communications. If a problem arises, I want to feel confident it will be handled in a concise and rapid manner. My choices are:

Strategic Reflections-500+ jobs without a hitch
Quest 4 Best-297 shops, with all rolling smoothly
HS Brands-224 completed, with no problems
Any MSC for whom Kathy Hart, Robin Myers and/or Susan Crunk schedules.
I'm the same way! I want to know that if a problem arises I can reach out and be able to have consistent contact with somebody to resolve any problems or answer any questions
JM Ridgeway is okay and Customer Impact is awesome (IMO).

Or when they’re pushed out of a plane; though the hard part is probably getting them onto the plane in the first place.

Seriously, nobody cares that you're offended.
My favorites change frequently as I make more and more connections within the video shopping world..... I do suggest that new folks sing up with the ten most discussed companies first as they are larger companies and most have shops everywhere.

I'm actually glad that I did not find some of my favorite companies as I first started out. They tend to be picky with the quality of work and I made lost of mistakes when I first got going. Those larger companies are used to that and pretty forgiving with new folks.

Hard work builds character and homework is good for your soul.
I was thinking more like if they went off a cliff, which is equally awful but more likely than the plane scenario. A more delightful one is when they are swimming in a pond.
