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.

Mobile Notary Public and Networking Groups

Mobile Notary Public and Networking

Fast Notary service is a mobile notary public company. I joined an excellent referral networking group. They meet every week on Tuesday for breakfast. We find ways to help each other grow. The members of my chapter are great professionals and have great positive outlooks. It’s very important to network your notary business at every possible chance. I learned more about the networking scene this year. Networking groups are more effective than events because they there is more time to know each other.

Why Networking

I get to work on my business introduction as a Mobile Notary Public. It’s important to be able to “pitch” your Mobile Notary Public business confidently and concisely. You also build confidence in yourself and your business. Every meeting is another opportunity to do better. As you build your yourself, you build your business. These networking groups are a great ROI (return of investment). Total annual cost for being in a networking group is under $1,000.00, but  you can recoup the cost within a few months. If you paid that much money in a news or magazine ad, you wouldn’t see a return worth mentioning.

I meet with other groups, not just my chapter. Hopefully, I will meet more like minded people and expand my business through other professionals. I’ve tried networking through the local chamber of commerce, but it wasn’t enough. I will look into other chapters that are within my mobile notary service area: Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Encino, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Beverly Hills and other nearby Los Angeles areas.

Networking is essential to new notary publics. This really enables them to learn their trade. Build expereince in professional social settings. Create connections that they didn’t have before. Expose their business to people who needs them. Personal development is also crucial. A networking group will help you refine and build your professional persona.
