Traveling and Mobile Notary Have Vast Expertise
Why be a mobile notary?
Who said that being a notary cannot be a wonderful career? The notarization business is forever prosperous and offers a steady cash flow. Whereas, being a notary on staff would demand a lot of job experience and less mobility, in exchange for a stable salary. Only a few places today have notaries on their payrolls, such as large tech enterprises & financial institutions, among others. While being a notary on staff would most certainly prevent you from performing other duties, you can always opt to become a freelancing mobile notary public.
How to gain expertise as a mobile notary public?
Even with tremendous competition in the field of traveling notary, you can display your uniqueness by adding expertise in handling more than one type of notarization areas. Today, it is quite easy to gain expertise. For instance, if you have a strong base in the Wills, Testaments and Deeds, you might want to add a certification in Insurance as well. This will allow you to accept jobs from clients who need a notary specializing in the insurance.
You would first need to establish your expertise in a different area of traveling notary service by becoming a member of the National Notary Association (if you live in the U.S.), or you may search for an equivalent association or network that is legally authorized to educate, test and then certify you as an expert.
Becoming a member typically involves your background screening that only attests to the fact that you are serious about the notary business. As a professional, it should become your regular habit to want to upgrade your skill set and add more things under your belt. This will pave the way to making more revenue and establishing more ties with the customer base. Most of the times, if your clients like your services, they will retain you for a long time. Nobody likes to replace their doctor, accountant, or a good notary. Additionally, they may refer you to everybody they know.
What other options do you have as a traveling notary?
As a mobile notary, you can choose to provide traveling notary services. If you are licensed throughout the country such as Rai’s Mobile Notary in California who offer services all over the state, you have a multitude of chances of making more money and thereby increasing your experience.
To become a notary, you must want to help those in desperate need of your help. Although your activities may be limited to standing as a legal witness, you still play a very important role by attesting your signature and a stamp.
There are some scarce areas- licensing, employee verification form filling (not primarily notarial, but it can be a plus), where certification will open the doors to new opportunities.
One last thing to remember is to be in the loop of other mobile notaries and help the community, you may get a lot of trustworthy clients when others know they can rely on you.
