We, as entrepreneurs, all want to be the best at what we do. It’s in our nature. So, how do we become not just a notary, but a go to notary?
So You Want to Be a Mobile Notary?
You might have your Notary Commission and have been able to land a few mobile notary jobs here and there. They might have been from a local company or others looking for a notary near them. You find that you really enjoy what you are doing and are ready to be a mobile notary full time, on your time.
It takes time to build a business. It does not happen overnight. It takes a lot of hard work. So, to turn a part time interest into a full time small business you need to find the most efficient way to grow.
You can start by avoiding pitfalls and mistakes, and learning how to set yourself apart from the pack. But, to achieve your goals you need to establish a consistent revenue stream, so you can start earning more money.
And to do that, you need to become the go to notary for at least one company.
How to Make an Impact
So, what can you, as the mobile notary do to position yourself as a must have for your clients? It is not something that there is an exact recipe for, but being able to interact well with people and make a favorable first impression are a great start.
Sometimes it takes time, but other times being a friendly sounding voice can get your name entrenched in a scheduler’s mind, especially on a stressful day. Being the calm in the storm always helps. Add reliability on top of that, you are off to a great start.
If you get the chance to step in and perform a signing at the last minute, and can reasonably do so, people are going to remember who you are. We’re not saying to take a job you are not ready or really willing to take. That is not a good idea. But, coming through for people in the clutch is a fantastic way to make in indelible impression.
You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression, so might as well do it as you are saving the day.
And about reliability. Be on time, look sharp, be friendly, and even if you have to act like the only professional in the room, be that professional. Follow the process, confirm appointments, in short, be the rock that everyone knows they can rely on.
Because at the end of the day, providing peace of mind for your clients is the best way to help make sure you’re a Go To Notary.
