A LOCAL company is running a campaign to recruit more mystery shoppers to its ranks.

Douglas Stafford uses modern technology such as tiny hidden cameras to film staff at car sales showrooms to find out where improvements can be made.

The firm helps companies find out where improvements to customer services can be made, and offers a service to ensure its clients never lose touch with their old customers.

The company, based at 1000 Lakeside in North Harbour is turning to Facebook to help it in its recruitment drive.

Charities are also set to benefit, because if 500 people ‘like’ the firm’s page it will give £250 to both The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust and Smile4Wessex.

to help raise its profile on social networking site Facebook and two charities and a lucky prize-winner will benefit too from a cash donation and a prize of an Amazon Kindle electronic book reader.

Portsmouth-based mystery shopping and performance improvement company Douglas Stafford wants to raise awareness of its services and recruit more mystery shoppers and is using its Facebook page as a way of communicating with people.

To enter the competition with a chance to win an Amazon Kindle internet users simply have to ‘Like’ Douglas Stafford’s Facebook page - and there’s a target of 500 ‘likes’ to be reached by the end of March.

Once the target is met, the company will donate £250 to the two charities it has chosen to support in 2011 - The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, which provides sailing experiences for young people who have suffered with cancer and Smile4Wessex, which supports the work of the Wessex Neurological Centre in Southampton.

The team at Douglas Stafford, which is based at 1000 Lakeside North Harbour, take part in a number of charity fundraisers throughout the year, and hope that involving the public in its money-raising efforts will provide an opportunity to beat the total raised in 2010.

To join the ‘Facebook March’, simply ‘like’ Douglas Stafford’s Facebook page, and at the end of the month, one person will be chosen at random to win a brand new Amazon Kindle, worth more than £110!
