Copying your notes over from Snapdocs? Bad idea

Filed under: Your Notes Section — Tags: — admin @ 9:12 am

Many Notaries just like to copy and paste information. It is easy and thought-free. Thinking burns a lot of ATP, so why not conserve. The problem is that 123notary is not programmed like Snapdocs. The top of your notes section shows up on the search results. So, if you say, “Hi, my name is Mandy.” people will not click on you because they already know your name is Mandy, but don’t know what is unique about you and your experience.

It pays to have Jeremy (that’s me) go over your notes. No, it doesn’t cost anything, but it will benefit you a lot. When I go over people’s notes and fix them up, people get an average of 55% more clicks. It takes me about two minutes. I have done this tens of thousands of times and am good at it. Please allow me to pat myself on the back.

Notes sections on 123notary should focus on certain types of info, and be in a particular type of order. Don’t put all your info in an endless long jumbled paragraph. Divide into sections with experience and unique selling features at the top. Your personal introduction should NOT come at top, because that is not as critical to the hiring decision as what is unique about you and your experience.

So, read our tutorials on the blog about how to write a good notes section in the “your notes section” category on the right column of this blog. The comprehensive tutorials from back a few years ago are more thorough, but everything we have written on the topic is useful.



  1. Love your articles, Jeremy. Although I usually don’t comment, I always appreciate you. Perhaps I’ll take you up on your offer to review my notes. That is very nice of you.
