If everyone complains about Snapdocs, why do they continue to grow?

Despite constant bickering on the part of Notaries, Snapdocs continues to grow. Perhaps it is the convenience. You can send a message to twenty people simultaneously. But, it’s not convenient for the Notaries, and they don’t get paid well either.

Should Notaries continue to be signed up on Snapdocs? If they are desperate! It just seems like a huge headache. But, if you thrive on quantity of low paying and annoying jobs, it sounds like low-ball heaven.

The fact is that Snapdocs grew all year. They had a slow month in August or September according to some webstats I saw. I have no idea why. Perhaps some technical issues? Or perhaps their competitors (me) did something good!

How long will Notaries put up with cattle calls, low fees, fax backs and micromanaging? And how much will Snapdocs continue to grow?

123notary is going to have to compete a little harder and add some new high-tech features to regain some of the market share lost to Snapdocs. But, what type of features will we use? Find out!

  1. I say use it if you find an assignment that pays your rate. If it is low ball as many of them are, make an offer higher–that sometimes works if they can’t find anyone else for it. Otherwise just keep going, but don’t accept something for less than you are worth. If everyone would do that, our pay would be better than it currently is.

  2. I agree with Carol. I will only accept the cases at my rate. If not, I will propose a higher rate.

  3. I agree with Carol also but we must realize that there will always be a notary or two that will take a very low paying signing and think they are making money. Reality is, they are loosing money. Take into consideration their time, travel and general investments (E & O Ins., Commission, Background check, NNA certification, paper, drums, toner and auto wear). At $40 (or so) there is no way that they are breaking even!
