doing okay but you want to be able to create that feedback mechanism that tells you if your customers are still happy with your prices with your menu with the Porsche with the team with your gonna be able to find all that out and it's ignite a feedback mechanism buddy you need help with that please do more and download the stuff here but I want to be able to share two very powerful tips with you today and here it goes number one as a business you got to be able to tell the difference between a standard feedback system and a mystery shopper system yeah so there are two very very powerful mechanisms that you can put in place a standard feedback system or is a standard feedback system for you to you know I know very very good restaurants and some of the clients that we coach as well they put feedback forms on the table yeah they put feedback forms on the table and they asked very very general standard questions like did you enjoy the ambience did you enjoy the food did you enjoy the person that served you do you remember his name do you remember her name you know very very standard stuff and that you can put into some new more numerical marking and scoring as well now that's very very standard in most cases when those standard feedback mechanisms work is when your employees are actually asking your customers to do it if you leave it on the table and hope that your customers are gonna be all excited newsflash no one gets excited about that kinda stuff nobody just does that automatically they have to be requested and your server or whoever it's tending to the customer has got to be nice and it's got to ask properly with a good script so that your customers are willing to do that one of the things that we also do is this under the standard feedback mechanism you might want to be able to set some targets and some scores as well you know the number of customers that walk in or a number of customers that call in every every other week or every other month then do set a target because then this makes your team more proactive to be able to get some feedback as well so that might really really help but you got to be able to first tell the difference yeah point one or your standard feedback mechanism put back put that in place and it's a form that is very very simple to fill in it's not gonna be complicated don't go asking like 20 questions you know did you like this did you like that how did you compare the price what about our quality quality of our class quality of our whoo even if your employees begged the customer to do it they're not gonna do it okay that very specific questions kind of come in to the part number two which is the mystery shopper mechanism and I'm gonna tell you that in a little bit point number two our mystery shoppers mystery shoppers are an amazing service amazing platform I know a lot of companies that do that here professionally some of them are based here some of them are many of these companies are also based in Australia based in the UK but they're all helping retail chains to keep check on customer service food quality products services nor do we know so it's actually a professional service if you can find one that's pretty awesome but if you can't find one in the neck of the woods where you're at you can also do it yourself yeah so what's a mystery shopper mystery shopper are customers that get to use your service your service for free okay dying in your restaurant go for a massage in your place or you get to use the services for free in exchange for detailed observation yeah detailed observation so you could be running a hospital you could be running a clinic you could be running a spa a kindergarten whatever that you're running yeah you can always use a mystery shopper but how do you set up a good mystery shopper so here it goes a mystery shopper must be set up now could you do it on you know two three four or five times a day or even a week probably not you're probably gonna be able to do a mystery shopper once a week or once a month depending on how hard-working you are and you might want to get the mystery shoppers to be able to rotate across all your centers as well depending on how many you have but the mystery shopper needs to be up when I say setup there must be an a preliminary meeting between the mystery shopper and management so the mystery shopper of course is briefed on all the SOPs and the ways that the business should be running this is ideal these are the SOPs that we've trained a team over and over again so you should look out for all these steps and a mystery shoppers going huh how great so when this mystery shopper goes in she will be looking for all these things and she's got a very detailed questionnaire over here to see if this the the employee that serve you mentioned your name they offer you this new loyalty program they up-sell did they try to give you options alternatives if you reject it the first proposal Wow and we've got SOPs in place for that but we're just not sure if our employees are doing that and and that's why a bit of our upsell revenue has gone down so we will really want you to kind of check in on that and you're going whoa so a lot of mystery shoppers need to be prepped the mistake a lot of business people do is they send the mystery shopper in it's a brother or a niece or a cousin whatever just go right in go right in and talk to whoever and and tell us how you feel more often than not if some of you are already doing that what has the feedback been it's been awesome it's been great you have an awesome company a cousin your company's awesome big brother of course they would say that because number one they don't know how hard you've worked at the SOPs to be able to build it up so they're gonna say it's great as usual it's always good you know what's there to complain about but if they knew what the SOPs were what the initiatives were then their goal hmm well these guys didn't do that with me those guys didn't do that but you know there was no upsell no they just kind of let me go away they didn't take my phone number not then ask me for my name my business card nothing and you as the business owner are sitting over there just going wait a minute then why did I build all this SOPs for so a mystery shopper needs to be set up and a good other
