How to Get People to Notice Your Notary Business
Once you’ve earned certification to work as a notary public, the next step is getting customers. You likely won’t have a physical location from which you operate, which adds stress to the advertising process. If you operate from a physical location, alerting people to your presence can be a challenge. Luckily, the tips below are sure to help bring customers inside your doors or inspire them to pick up the phone and call you for service. Use this information and thrive as a notary public.
Social media is by far the easiest and best way to reach an audience. Create a page and/or a group, create engaging posts, have fun, and advertise your business. It’s easy to get shares which further spread the word that your business is around.
Word of Mouth
Don’t be shy. Use every possible opportunity to tell friends, neighbors, coworkers, and even the lady behind you at the supermarket that you are a proud notary public business owner. Word of mouth has long been an excellent source of advertising. Put it to work for your new business, too.
Check out the local newspapers and place ads in them to reach customers and to otherwise let people know that you’re around. You’ll find both paid and free newspapers and local advertising directories to use for this purpose. Don’t miss any of your customers and use them all to your benefit.
It is important to create business cards to hand out to people, to post on boards at the supermarket, and to otherwise make you feel like the business professional that you are. Business cards are fairly cheap and can be designed to suit your needs. Make this the first thing that you do after completing a notary application!
