Notary Loan Signing Agent
A notary loan signing agent is an agent who serves the function of obtaining and notarizing signatures on loan, mortgage, and real estate documents. Notary loan signing agents are hired by mortgage companies, escrow companies, title companies and signing services to execute these types of transactions.
Depending on market conditions, a notary loan signing agent will likely never run out of work. Real estate and loan transactions are typically steady in both up and down markets. However, there are many opportunities to generate income besides working with signing or title companies.
Some notary loan signing agents work with law offices, health care facilities, colleges and financial institutions. Reaching out to law offices and offering your services allows attorneys to focus on growing their business and not getting stuck in the weeds of conducting closings. As a loan signing agent your skills and training are exactly what is needed to serve their clients. You can still work as an independent contractor and the attorney can hire you as needed.
Work with Financial Institutions
Another opportunity is with financial institutions. While most will have staff to handle loan closings when there is a staffing shortage or a need to travel to the customers, this is where your services could be needed. Focus on branch managers to get your business card in the hands of the lending department.
Other great connections that may not necessarily need your loan signing agent skills but can benefit from your mobile notary services are health care facilities and colleges. You will find that especially assisted living centers and those facilities serving our older population can use help because most of the residents no longer drive. Colleges also have many students that may not be able to leave campus for whatever reason. These are great locations to provide your much needed services.
Invest in Print Marketing & Website
If you are looking to expand your business, invest in your print marketing and website. These are business drivers. Then ask for reviews! Every single time you work with a client, ask for a review and get that review out on your social media and website. It will help drive your business growth and brand awareness. Promote your business by getting out into your community.
Join the local Chamber of Commerce or offer free notary services once a month at a local senior center. Have a leave behind. I always leave my logo branded pens with my clients or hand them out when I am out and about. That pen will circle more than a business card will! Word of mouth goes a long way, so getting in front of people is just as important as digital marketing. Make sure that your business is in every notary directory you can find.
Join Local & National Directories
If people are searching for a notary in your area you want to be on those directories. Having a google business profile helps with that. Some strategies you can try are promoting your website and/or a google business profile, direct mail a flyer, and take out an ad in a local paper.
