The Key to Understanding Your Customer

986 555 Evaluate Indonesia

Just like any couple, the company has to build and maintain good relationship with its customers through the customer experience. More than 50% of that experience depends on how the customer feels they are being treated (McKinsey).

The management consultant firm – Bain & Company did a survey towards 362 companies in 2005. The result came out interesting. About 80% of the companies claimed that they deliver “superior” customer service. Meanwhile, speaking from the customer’s perspective, there were only 8% of the customers think that the same companies really deliver “superior” customer service.

This fact tells you that the company oftentimes misreads the market because they don’t truly understand the customers. To do so (understanding your customers accurately), companies have to conduct an evaluation from the customer’s perspective. Unfortunately, this evaluation isn’t an easy thing to do without proper knowledge and experience.

In this case, Evaluate Indonesia comes to support any company to do it good and right. As a professional company with more than 8-years experience, we offer the Mystery Shopping as our superior method. This method specifically has 5 focus services, where the Customer Experience Evaluation is one of them.

In this service, the mystery shopping will focus on the holistic observation and evaluation towards our client’s customer service performance. Our main goal is to discover the quality of the companies’ customer service on its true nature.

The evaluation process consists of some steps. First, Evaluate will ask the company to reassure their specific goals, in correlation to the customer experience. Based on that step, we will discover what indicators we need to put attention to, in this evaluation. Next, this process will continue in the making of the mystery shopping scenario.

While doing the visit, a mystery shopper is directed to focus on giving their objective evaluation towards their experience, based on the existing questionnaire. Some things to be carefully noticed, such as: how do the staffs treat the customers? how good are the staffs on dealing with customers and responding the request? are the staffs being helpful? and how well are the staffs manage to comply their task as the responsibility?

The mystery shopping is not just based on buying experience on the store. It also can be conducted towards the buying experience via online channel, the complaint experience, competitor observation, etc.

After the visit, the shopper will give their valuation in the form of report draft, as it based on their visit experience. Afterwards, Evaluate will validate the data from that draft and later process the information carefully into an evaluation report for the client.

The findings as mentioned on the evaluation report are the valuable information, which client can use to judge (1) whether the service already met the company’s term and condition or not, (2) is the customer service strategy succeed or failed, also (3) identify the plus and minus of the strategy implementation.

One thing for sure, the evaluation result will be very useful for the client to understanding the customers’ heart. With this asset, client can personally decide the right direction for its company to reach the best-quality customer.

986 555 Evaluate Indonesia

A great mystery shopper is the dutiful one. It means, the shopper fully understand the rule/direction, scenario, and the work schedule provided by the client, while also doing all of it during the mission. The more comply the shopper, the more capable them in making a significant professional report.

Furthermore, for those interested to be a mystery shopper, please noted these principal rules.

    1. Doing visit
      1. In order to observe the true nature of the performance from a customer service strategy standard, a shopper is suggested to conduct the visit during rush hour. The natural behavior of the employees would clearly be seen while they’re dealing with a hectic situation.
      2. The shopper’s appearance and behavior should be natural just like the ordinary customer. Be sure that you’re not drawing attention and looked more prominently than the other people around. Paying attention in overall aspect, from the way of dressing, communicating, even to your gesture. Avoid asking too detail to the employees, unless it’s ordered by the client.
      3. Don’t let your temper affect your work, especially when you facing the unwilling condition. Also, don’t let your mood determine your performance and disturb your job that day.
      4. Collect the itemized receipt instead of payment receipt. The itemized receipt contains the detail item and price per item you’ve bought. Keep this receipt in the safe place.
    2. Writing report
      1. Write your report as soon as possible, while the experience still fresh in your memory. The more you delay the report, the more fading the detail in observation. Although, it doesn’t mean that you have to directly write the report while you still on the mission, even at the obvious place where the employees can see your activity. If you want to write it right away, just move to the more private spot, such as the fitting room or the toilet.
      2. Write the report as detail as you can. Describe the experience clearly to explain the behavior. Example, write “the employee A was greeting me with a huge smile as I walk into the store. She shook my hand and directly asked what I need”, instead of “the employee A is really nice”. Avoid giving your opinion on the report to maintain objectivity.
      3. Attach the complete documentation as the evidence of your visit. The primary documentations pervade the photo of the store, receipt, brochure/name card/pamphlet. You also need to mention the name of the employee that interacted with you on the visit and what did they offer to you.
      4. Check the report thoroughly. Use the spell checker application to avoid the typing error. While writing the report, always refer to the correct grammar and other basic writing rules. Moreover, never use the caps lock because it feels not polite in general (unless it’s specified)

To be the expert mystery shopper, always rely on this rules while running your mission. Do your task well and have fun shopping!

Mystery Shopping to Satisfy Customer, Is Once Enough ?

986 555 Evaluate Indonesia

If you want to make sure someone understand your message, what will you do? Repeat what you’ve said. If you want to make sure the truth about something, what will you do? Ask again. If you want to capable in doing something rightly, what will you do? Exercise again and again

Those three simple examples prove the power of repetition. Doing something more than once ensure us to get the more satisfying result. Lighthouse website even obviously said that “The power of repetition is any leader’s best friend”.

If you want to successfully satisfy your customer, don’t perform the mystery shopping only once. Otherwise, do this program regularly, at least once in a few months.

The main objective of repeating mystery shopping is to ensure the consistency. You need a thorough and steady assessment to ensure your strategy performance is always on track, since the customer service strategy is a long-term process.

The first mystery shopping will tell you the true nature of your customer service strategy’s performance. You will find out some important things, like; Do the employees treat the customers well? Are the existing SOP obeyed by the employees? The report from the first attempt will really help you in making a corrective plan as needed; such as training, counseling, reviewing the strategy, and so on.

On the next mystery shopping, you’ll be able to check the consistency of your employees’ performance towards a different shopper. Mystery shopping helps you to evaluate whether the corrective plan (that you took based on the result of the first shopping) is doing well and showing a result as expected or not.

On the other hand, performing mystery shopping for more than once also ensures you to collect the more accurate data, which might be missed or bias on the former visit. By all this, the observation result will definitely have the higher validation.

So, if you ask is that enough to perform mystery shopping once? The answer is undoubted NO. Mystery shopping has to be performed regularly to guarantee the research showing the accurate and effective result so the company could reach both the short-term and long-term goals.

Why Is Excellent Service Very Important for Your Business?

986 555 Evaluate Indonesia

We all surely familiar with the jargon “customer is king”. It clearly describes how important the customer for a brand. Customer who’s in love and satisfied with a brand will automatically make the brand developed. As we can see, the brand like Hilton Hotel, Apple, and Garuda Indonesia are always success being the best among its industries because they offer the most pampering customer service.

Daymond John (American businessman and motivator) mentioned 5 interesting points on his website. This explanation will convince you that the customer service is the most important thing in your business.

1. Building trust

Basically, customers only need to find one small mistake to hate a brand. Yet, they need one positive impression of experience to finally like and loyal to a brand. By applying an excellent service, customer will be encouraged to trust your brand and then finally be loyal too.

2. More than just a price matter

Customers today are much more concern with a great service over a good product. No matter how amazing your product quality is, customers will think twice to reuse it if the brand gives them bad service. On the other hand, customers confess that they are willing to pay more when they’re treated very well.

3. Gaining brand awareness

People tend to share their experience to their relatives. This word of mouth (WOM) gives you the stronger marketing effect more than any other campaigns you’ve held, simply because people tend to trust fellow customers more. The service excellence ensures the customers to have positive experience so they will talk and promote your brand to the others, even when you’re not asking them to. As the result, you gain more brand awareness, more people attracted to try your product, and finally you get a good reputation.

4. Reducing the problem

Problem is unavoidable. But always remember that problem won’t ruin your business when you have an excellent service strategy. The service excellence helps you to always ready and know the way to response the customers’ complaint. The customers surely feel cared if you are willing to respond and give their problem a good solution. Instead of wary, the customer will respect you more for that responsibility.

5. Appealing to customer

Service excellence helps you find out the customers’ needs and wants in detail. Thereby, a customer may feel that you appreciate them and treat them as human, not just a number.

By relying on those reasons, we can conclude that customers are the most vocal and credible figure to evaluate a brand. In order to develop the brand, we need a loyal customer more than just a buyer. So, show them your excellent customer service; not just a good one!

Excellent business certainly knows that customer satisfaction is a primary factor for success. This knowledge enforces company to develop a service excellence strategy in order to pamper the customer.

To measure the SOP executed properly or not, a company should conduct a regular assessment. From the various form of existing assessments today, we believe that mystery shopping is one of the smart and effective ways. With the more companies using this method nowadays, the needs of the mystery shopper surely follow to increase.


Basically, mystery shopper is someone hired by a company to discreetly observe the company, in order to find out and evaluate its service quality and physical condition based on the customer point of view.

As a job, mystery shopper is really fun. This is the only job where you can shop for free and get paid! You can also keep and enjoy the product you’ve purchased. Moreover, any expenses related to the shopping (i.e. transportation cost) will be reimbursed by the company.

Not only fun, the mystery shopper is also a challenging job, just like a spy. A mystery shopper conducts a visit to the targeted place and acts as a regular customer, but with a certain mission. The mission is to visit, shop, and enjoy the facilities while thoroughly observe the overall condition of the place they visited. Following this observation, the results will be submitted as a detail report to the company, for evaluation.

While running the mission, the mystery shopper will act like a regular customer and maybe running through certain scenarios to find out how staff would handle the unexpected situation (such as: asking for inquiries, asking for help, purchasing the products). The whole thing should be done naturally so that no one realizes that the customer is a mystery shopper. A mystery shopper must be well-trained and has a great memory so they’ll always calm, thorough, and detail while doing the mission.

Surely, mystery shopper is a good and fun option for a job today. Especially for people who love challenges. So, let’s join as a mystery shopper and enjoy the fun of getting paid for shopping, spending the night at a hotel, eating in the fancy restaurant, even flying for free!
