We asked Notaries if they prefered Texts or Calls assigning them jobs

Most Notaries prefer to be called with a Notary job. That way they can negotiate the fees. However, you can also negitiate with a text. It is just as easy. It just involves more back and forth plus waiting.

If you are offered a $50 signing with 400 pages, just text them back asking for $400. You won’t get a response as your price is too high. But, if you try to be reasonable and ask for $80, you just might get it, especially if you get back to people quickly.

If you read Zen and the art of negotiating notary prices — it’s just like anything else. If you really want the job, bit a little low like $70. If you don’t care that much, bid $85. If you don’t want the job, but will go if they are desperate, then bid $120. Keep your prices proportional to your level of desperateness.

  1. Since much of the time we are driving to or from signings I prefer a phone call. Texting while driving is dangerous and in many p!aces illegal. This also goes for apps that various companies now have. It’s not always possible to pull off the road to text or reply to an app request.

  2. Was that a typo or did you really say 80$ was reasonable for a 400 page signing?

  3. Phone calls are better – on a text they say one thing – give you a very low fee – than add fax backs etc. and expect you to do it for the same fee. Not happening.
