Slow down in loan signings
Notary Public Sherman Oaks like myself, have noticed a slow down in signings for refi loans. (Despite lowest rates http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-mortgage-rates-20170105-story.html) One cause is the stagnant wage (http://myrefinancetoday.com/does-fourth-quarter-gdp-foretell-a-slowdown-in-home-affordability#sthash.0Eq4UqTZ.dpbs) Perhaps there may be a pick up later in the year once loan applications have been processed. Until then, self-employed notary public’s need to diversify into other areas of the notary business. So suggestions of additional sides business for a Notary Public Sherman Oaks:
Bookkeeping- If you know accounting, then this would be the best side gig to add to your notary business. You can work on it at anytime, regardless of sporadic scheduling. It’s a consistant stream of income since bookkeepers charge on a month to month basis. A great way to stabilize your monthly income.
Wesbites/Desgin- If you know how to code and create websites or if you have an eye for web design, then this is also a great side gig that you can work around your notary schedule.
MLM- If you have a passion/believe in a MLM product or service, then add it to your notary services. MLM (multi level marketing) get a bad rap from the 90’s, which aren’t bad. For example, I’m also a LegalShield associate, a legal services plan. It’s comprehensive legal coverage and a lot of my notary clients have need for affordable legal help. These two things have great synergy, and takes no major additional effort to recommend LegalShield to my clients as I notarize their documents.
That’s why I am reaching out to local business around me in hopes of acquiring more clients, rather than customers. Customers come and go, while a client is a business relationship that incurs repeat business. As a mobile notary based in Encino, Ca, I can travel as far north as Oxnard, as far east as Valencia, as far west as Santa Monica and as far south as Glendale. Additionally, I am a notary that is open 24/7. My office hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday, closed Saturday and Sunday. I charge a small travel fee for mobile notary services, but please call for rates as they do vary on distance and time of travel (i.e. rush hour cost more time for me to travel, or if going further than the San Fernando valley). http://fastnotaryservice.com/services/
