Mobile Notary Business Information
Earning an Edge Over Your CompetitionRemember, the competition is your friend. Meeting other mobile Notaries in your area will get you noticed, remembered and referred. The more you make yourself known, the more you'll appear to be a professional, serious about your business, and dependable in the community. Other mobile Notaries will be happy to refer business to you that they can't handle because they'll be placing their contacts in good hands.
But you still want to build your own loyal clients. The best way to do this is to excel at what you do.
Ask yourself a few questions: What sets you apart from other people in general? Are you friendly and outgoing? Are you sensitive, understanding and compassionate? What are your best talents and skills? What do you understand best about this industry? Put all of this together and come up with a way to rise above the rest.
For instance, I discovered I interacted well with the ill and elderly, a group many Notaries would like to avoid. Find your own niche and emphasize it.
Another way to be successful long after many other Notaries have left the business is to uphold your Notary commission with integrity and honor. You took an oath not to break or even bend any rules (laws). Determine from the very start that you'll keep that public trust with exactness. You will be recognized as a trusted professional and called on to perform your service over and over again for the public.
Just outlasting other Notaries will move you up the ladder. Many Notaries enter the business thinking it's a get-rich-quick opportunity for them. Before long they're on to the next shiny thing they see. Like any worthwhile business, it takes time to build. If you stay steadily with it, your business will steadily grow until one day you will be the one looking for an associate to take your overload.
