Mobile Notary and Networking
One of the most difficult things about being a mobile Notary Public in Encino is going out to networking events. There are different barriers to overcome, but they can be conquered with confidence.
First, there’s the random schedule. You can have days of back to back appointments. Other days of no appointments. And occasional days of appointments with long gaps between each other. Attending a networking event can be challenging. A last minute notary need can throw off your networking intentions.
Second, networking events cost money. From entry fees to annual dues, networking is not free. Some networking groups do have better (ROI) than alternative marketing plans. Limit the costs by visiting the networking groups (only join if the group is to your liking). This also applies to Chamber of Commerce chapters. There are websites where professionals network for free, so be sure to check them out as well.
Last but not least, the hurdle of “selling yourself.” A notary must overcome the “Oh, you’re just a notary?” line. Do not sell yourself short as a Notary Public in Encino . Professional notary public’s should distinguish themselves. As professional notary public, we pride ourselves in notary education and knowledge. We dress in professional attire. Our expereince and our ability to provide value to the notary experience when traveling to the client.
I am surrounded by hundreds or even thousands of other notary publics. Many notary public’s are part time. Few make it as full time notary public. I am finding my niche in the notary public business. Something I realized early on, don’t be afraid to network with other notaries. While it is difficult to find trustworthy honest notary’s, it will prove valuable. When notary public’s can network together, then they can succeed together. Find value in yourself as a notary, and you’ll find value in your business.
