This method, which is hardly ever promotedyet so simple, is called mystery shopping.So what is mystery shopping?Firstly, customer service is the lifeblood of any business. If you really think about,customers are really the boss, not the management of the company. Withoutcustomers a business does not make any sales and without sales a business cannot payits employees. Hence without customers you cannot have a business.With that said, how does a company ensure that its employees are delivering top notchcustomer service?
