As Notaries, people are always looking for ways to get more work. Unfortunately, some of those ways are time consuming, expensive or demeaning. As a Notary, you don’t actually need a website. However, a well designed and informative web site will make you look good, and will get you more work. There are several ways how it will get you more work.
1. If you link your website to directory listings on 123notary, NotaryRotary, Snapdocs, etc., people browsing for Notaries will compare you to the other Notaries and will fancy you if you have a nice looking site. That makes you look more serious than the competition — unless you have a horrible looking webpage (not web site) that hasn’t been updated in nine years in which case it might make you look worse.
2. If your website is optimized for local keywords such as Pasadena Notary, Notary Pasadena, Notary in Pasadena, etc., you might attract a lot of traffic from the web.
3. You can put your website link on your business card and get some traffic. That way people will be able to get an impression about you and your service before calling you.
However, websites are very expensive to create, host and maintain. So, unless you are married to the Notary profession, I recommend against a website.
