Many Notaries go for top listings on 123notary despite the high price
because they know it generates jobs. However, many Notaries prefer the
free listings because they don’t want to pay for performance. Here are
some reasons that might sway your opinion on paying for a higher spot
1. Title companies prefer the top several notaries on 123notary.
Title assumes that the top several notaries are better quality on
123notary. This might have to do with the fact that we use an
algorithm to filter out those with low overall scores from being high
on the list. Title is picking up on that fact, and that has been the
case for years. Title companies that pay well rarely look far down the
list for Notaries.
2. Get seen
People higher on the list get seen more than those down the list.
People shopping for price might go all the way down the list to look
for a notary, but those who pay well do not generally have to look
far. Paying a few hundred to be high on the list can pay off fast
especially when business is good.
3. Get paid more per signing
Those listed higher on the list generally get paid more per signing.
People who low-ball often hire from lower on the list or go to
SnapDocs, or NotaryRotary.
4. Get more clicks and overall calls.
If you are high on the list, you will get many more clicks and calls
than those down the list. You will get more jobs than with an
identical listing down the list. Being high on the list doesn’t
guarantee jobs, but it makes you in people’s face and impossible to
5. Don’t get overlooked
Most people who use 123notary start at the top and keep calling until
they find someone who can do the job for a reasonable price. If you
are at the bottom of the list, you might never get called except for
jobs that are late at night, far away, or don’t pay well. Although you
6. Get respect
People assume you are a better quality notary when you are at the top
of 123notary.com. Our site has a reputation for having good notaries,
especially at the top of the list.
7. Get high placement in neighboring counties
Only a high spot on 123notary will get you higher placement (above the
free listings at least) in adjascent counties at no extra cost. Some
Notaries get heavy call volume from neighboring areas as well as from
their home area.
8. Have a guarantee of where you will show up on the list.
Regular, preferential and free listings do not guarantee you where
you will show up. They are just levels. Preferential means you are
above regular, and regular means you are above free. It doesn’t
guarantee a particular placement. Being a p20 guaranatees you top
placement on your county page. We cannot guarantee zip results due to
the unpredictable overlap, but overlap only happens if someone is near
you, but on the other side of a county line.
9. Have a guarantee you won’t be removed
Free listings do not get always get reminders to login and can be
removed on a whim by 123notary staff. High placed paid listings get
reminders to login and you will not be removed unless you ignore a lot
of reminders to login by email and phone. In fact, with most top
placements, I login for them (shhh, don’t tell anyone.)
10. Get customer service
If you are a free listing, you get minimal if any customer service
from us. But, high placed listings get not only password assistance,
but get help with their notes section, marketing advice, and lots of
hand holding from Jeremy and Carmen. If you want to be cared for and
get high quality help from people who have been in the business for 22
years, a top listing is a cost efficient way to get that.
High placed listings perform well if they have a few reviews from
satisfied clients as well as a thorough and well written notes
section. If you leave your listing stripped down, you might not get
your money’s worth. 123notary is in the business of getting renewals
and repeat business, so we strongly suggest that you ask for our help
and suggestions as to how to make the most of your listing. That way
you will get more work and be very likely to renew with us which is
what we depend on for our long term survival. Getting 123notary
certification is another strong plus for your listing and you can
email us to learn more about that.
