The five year rule of experience for Notaries

Filed under: General Articles — admin @ 11:48 am

For some reason, Notaries with exactly five years of experience are the most popular. Notaries who are new to our site tend to get poor click averages. Notaries who have been around for eight plus years tend to get apathetic and see a decline in clicks that increases little by little.

Notaries who brag that they have twenty years of experience need to understand that in our experience working with tens of thousands of Notaries, twenty years of experience equals someone who is generally sluggish, tired, washed out, arrogant, and rusty on Notary knowledge since they generally haven’t brushed up on their skills in decades.

If you want to brag about your experience, brag that you have exactly five years of experience. It is kind of like Fran the Nanny from Queens who says 29 for the rest of her life and never gets a day older. It is a good age to be, especially if you are still single.

Rough Stats: Clicks per day average for high ranking listings that are not 123notary certified.

12 years 1.4 clicks
8 years 1.2 clicks
5 years 1.8 clicks
3 years 1.3 clicks
1 year .7 clicks

Please keep in mind that these clicks are based on higher placed listings and there were few averaged. According to these results the 8 years people got less clicks than the 12 year veterans, but the trend shows a slow decline in clicks as people get settled into apathy and decline. The first five years of your career you develop technical and business knowledge that makes you better. Then, you get tired of learning, perhaps cocky and go into a decline cycle. On a brighter note, name recognition really helps in this business, so if your name has been around forever, you might get a lot of work just based on name recognition from the old timers at signing and title companies who know your name.
