Discussions of Video Mystery Shopping

I skimmed the guidelines. I don't recall seeing the video requirement. (Source). September 16, 2019

If I'm under, it's usually because I've been away, sick, injured or just a plain ole' bad month. I don't do video, apartments or travel to far off places, but I do route shop every time I leave the house. (Source). September 15, 2019

But I lived in a rural area so the only shops available then I had to travel for. Also video was just starting and I didn’t (and still don’t) video shop. (Source). September 14, 2019

The training, plus the experience and good counsel from other video shoppers, will be an invaluable resource to you. (Source). September 13, 2019

I got my video training free with online training when I signed up for imsc membership. (Source). September 12, 2019

But I KNOW I'm actually ON "the web", because I can read and send e-mails; watch videos on YouTube, stuff like that. (Source). September 12, 2019

How ironic, because it was about a similar experience that I had, on video, in Roanoke, 10 years ago. (Source). September 12, 2019

I encourage you to take advantage of the training thru IMSC and/or MSPA, and the companies which require you to take their own training before assigning you video shops. (Source). September 12, 2019

Most offered on the Internet does not produce industry standard audio and video. (Source). September 12, 2019
