Manufacturer Mystery Shopping

What is Manufacturer Mystery Shopping?

Ever wondered where your product or company sits in the minds of the salespeople selling it? With manufacturer mystery shopping our expert shoppers can provide you with a full audit of how your brand is presented to consumers. Often, this process leads to the discovery that what you don’t know, can in fact hurt you. The results help you critically analyze the selling features of your product and how it is being marketed. With our strategic data, you are now able to take the necessary steps to provide guidance to salespeople so they have the tools to promote your product and enhance your brand’s image.

Selling Insight Process

At Reality Based Group, we take pride in being able to evaluate the manufacturers’ brand to help them become top-of-mind to the employees selling their product. When we send in our expert mystery shoppers, they question salespeople on which brand they recommend and why they love that brand. Shoppers then ask which brand they would next recommend and so forth. If your brand is not mentioned, they then ask about your specific brand, helping you to find out exactly what salespeople have to say about your product.

Through years of experience in brand auditing, we have found there can often be a disconnect between what manufacturers see as the top selling feature for their product and what the salespeople see as the top selling feature. Manufacturer mystery shopping with RBG erases that disconnect and allows you to find out exactly what salespeople see as important and why. The results then allow you to adjust accordingly.
