Traveling Encino Notary Public Journal Entry 4.14.17

Traveling Encino Notary Public Journal

Another week has come and gone as a Traveling Encino Notary Public. The loan signing side of my business has been rather slow. As a 24/7 mobile notary, it is important to have a wide pool of job sources. Whether it be attorneys, banker or escrow officer, a notary needs to continue to network. One thing I do focus on more than anything is online marketing. 90% of my business comes from people inquiring about notary publics near them. The rest is from Yelp, which I only maintain my free profile. (The cost of advertising on Yelp is  too high).

In addition to being a 24/7 notary public in Encino, Ca, I am also a tax preparer and an Independent LegalShield Associate. Preparing taxes is seasonal and helps cushion the slow times. LegalShield is a great way to build residual income. This is important for me since I am self-employed and have no vacations. With LegalShield I can have a small stream of income (goal to make it large) even during times when I am not actively working. We welcome any self-employed notary public to inquire more about it.

I am looking to network with other notary public’s.Referral work from another notary public is preferred over work from a signing company. I try not to work with signing companies. Signing companies are the middle men that take money away from notary publics. They rank high on search engines, bargin notary fees to a minimum and expect the notary to take the bottom barrel pricing.

The importance of notary memberships and directories

Notary Memberships

I’ve been a member of the National Notary Association (NNA) since I’ve started as a notary public. Notary memberships like this one have super helpful information on their website: www.nationalnotary.org .  Also, their notary hotline have saved me many a headaches when faced with difficult or trick notarizations. Though being a notary doesn’t require you to be a NNA member, it sure does help.

A mobile notary like myself have enjoyed being a member and will continue to be a member of the NNA. For those other notaries that are looking for advice on going full time independent notary publics, be sure to have your info on the following directories: www.123Notary.com , www.notaryrotary.com and www.yelp.com as they will help lead clients to your business (a virtual office and professional website/email is a must).
