How do you get the word out that you are a notary public?
Notaries get their work from advertising in the yellow pages, online, word of mouth, networking, and from people you know or work with. So, how do you get the word out that you are a notary and want to offer your services to others?
Pass out the cards!
You can walk around your neighborhood and pass out business cards to people in neighboring businesses. They will like the fact that they recognize you and that you are walking distance. They might receive regular inquiries from walk-ins that need a notary public, and now, they will know where to refer those people!
Nursing homes are a great place!
Once again, pass out your business cards to the relatives of the patients at convelescent homes. They will need you sooner than you think. Give the staff your card too.
Jails and bailbonds people need notaries too!
The people in the waiting rooms of jails might need a notary public faster than you can say, “lockdown”. Bailbonds people generally have their own in-house notary, but they are out sick or quit from time to time.
