The phone has stopped ringing for most Notary Loan Signing Jobs. It sure has with me. With new rules, the housing industry will take awhile to come back and probably never to the amount of loans done in the past. That is the bad news. The good news is that many Notaries are letting their Notary Commission expire, thus reducing the number of Notaries going after jobs. That is the good news. Now is the time to either start or renew business plans and training to be ready for the phones to start ringing again. Only this time, you can increase the odds of your phone ringing more that the other Notary.
There is a story about two campers sleeping in a tent and a big bear comes toward them. One of the campers reached down to put on his shoes. “You can’t outrun a bear!”, one of the campers said. The other replied, “I don’t have to, I just have to outrun you.” For people who want a low cost Home Based Business, it is time to put your shoes on. Many people think doing work in your home is not a Business. The business practices for a Notary working out of their home and General Motors are basically the same. Just as General Motors can’t wait for the phone to ring neither can the Notary. So how can you get the phone to ring? I have taught hundreds of Notary Students in California, the ones who succeed all have the following in common.
investing in your business and yourself
To start any business you have to have some money to invest. Fortunately, Mobile Notary businesses take very little money to get started.
You need to qualify to be a Notary Public. Depending which State you live in that could be a few dollars to $2-300 dollars. Check below for the requirements to become a Notary Public for your State.
You need to get Loan Signing Training. There are many places where you can get this training. I recommend that you find a place that can offer training, marketing help, loan singing companies lists and back up when you get a tough assignment. If you want to be a full service Notary you need a full service provider of everything you will need.
The Notary Public business is one of the few places that experience does not matter. The new person and the 20 year veteran have the same standard for Loan Signing. 100%. New guys cannot be “out Notarized”. What make the new guy different that the experienced one is the ability to get your phone to ring.
Since there is some start up time needed if you are starting from scratch, now is the best time to Start a Mobile Notary Business in your area. For some, the business of being a Notary can be overwhelming. That is good, it keeps the competition down. Marketing, accounting, web site, supplies, business cards and stationary, email yada yada yada. You need a place that has it all for your support. This is my recommendation for you to go for all your Mobile Notary Needs and Support from a full service Notary Public Company.
