Last month we teased, this month it’s here!
 

We’d now like to announce that Proinsight are selling covert video cameras to our shoppers! 

Our clients are understanding more that having the ability to watch back the service their colleagues are providing allows them to train and encourage better customer service and performance. 

This is great news for you, our shoppers! Video mystery shopping pays a higher fee than normal mystery visits and as Proinsight are growing, so is the ability to complete video mystery visits. 

Usually our experienced and regular video mystery shoppers use covert button hole cameras to complete their visits. Whilst, we’d suggest that this is still likely the best way to complete lots of video visits or those that last a long time, we understand that this is rather costly and wanted to look into ways of making upgrading to ‘video status’ more viable.

Our covert smart watch cameras run on a looped system that will record in 10 minute clips that can be linked together before attaching to your Proinsight survey. They cost £44.99 each which includes postage and packaging and will usually arrive within 5 days of purchase. So perfect for the August video mystery shops that you’ve got your eye on!

Video mystery shops tend to pay £25-£70 so once you’ve completed 2 shops with your new covert watch you’re quids in!
 

This cost (£44.99) does not include the micro SD card you will need to record and save your footage, we suggest a 64GB micro SD card but 32GB can be used for 20-30 minute assignments. 

 

To order your covert video smart watch or find out more information, please email us at shopper@proinsight.org, by clicking this link an email will populate with the subject title ‘Video Watch Camera – My Location Is….’, please populate your location and enter your query into the email body.
 

We’d suggest only looking into becoming a Video Mystery Shopper if you’ve completed mystery shops before and are used to survey writing and conducting assignments to a high standard. Please contact your Programme Coordinator for advice or to ask questions about if video shopping is for you.
