Direct business vs signing services

Hello guys. I’ve been a notary for almost 2 years now. Things got in the way these past 2 years so I haven’t been able to conduct my first signing. Business has been very slow for me on snap docs and other signing services. I’m wondering if I should just go direct to title companies ? Or continue going through signing services since of course I haven’t conducted a signing before.

As this is a small “Universe” to operate within & first impressions are critical to success.

=> As such, you owe it to yourself to successfully complete a viable training program, know your state notary laws/regulations comprehensively, & to complete a number of loan signings to develop your knowledge base to a professional & proficient level.

Remember, you’re creating & developing a business. It’s not a sprint, it’s a Marathon. :angel:

If you haven’t undergone training, here are some insights from my direct experience:
When I initially started performing this work, I successfully completed MULTIPLE training/certification programs including Notary2Pro & NNA and many others. I have extensive experience in skill sets that require certification and recurrent evaluation tests; i.e., I’ve maintained my Project Management Professional [PMP] certification for more than 20 years. So, I understand what it usually entails and the elements that should be included within a comprehensive training program.

Regarding the NNA training specifically, it’s lacking across multiple topics & categories. Many NNA “graduates” choose to take additional training courses elsewhere, because they sense they’re insufficiently prepared. Their primer has errors throughout. Their hotline is less than reliable for accurate responses.

In my experience with undergoing the multiple training programs for certified notary signing agent [CNSA] certification, hands-down without question, Carol Ray’s Notary2Pro training programs are optimum in this industry. I’ve successfully completed ALL of the multiple training/certification programs that Carol offers through her company Notary2Pro. Her programs are thorough & detailed. These also prepare the business owner to operate a business. In addition, she offers Mentoring services. I found those to be excellent & INVALUABLE when I was initially starting out in this business sector. The prices are surprisingly reasonable. :white_check_mark:

I’ve professionally compared the training/certification programs available at Notary2Pro with the others I’ve successfully completed. The ONLY training/certification program I recommend is Notary2Pro.

A list of companies that hire Notary2Pro graduates (with minimal or no experience) is provided to successful course graduates. => This list is pure GOLD! Study up, refresh your notes, & let Carol know when your initial few signings are scheduled. She is a wonderful mentor & can be on standby in case you encounter difficulties or have questions during your first few signings. She’s the Best! Her support will help you Build your Confidence in providing this service. :trophy::white_check_mark:

In addition, Notary2Pro works diligently to keep this list up-to-date regarding vetting and viability. As we all know, some reliable clients can encounter financial difficulties and that, in turn, can negatively impact CNSAs directly.

Of course, your best bet would be to visit their website at , research, and make the choices appropriate for your situation. The training programs by Carol Ray are comprehensive & thorough. :sparkles::tada::sunglasses:

P.S. I receive no compensation or remuneration of any type or kind as a result of my first-hand experiential review above.

I know and understand your pain… My personal opinion on the matter… before going direct you may want to consider getting some experience with the signing services first. Going direct is good for building long-term one on one relationships and like any new relationship how you present yourself from the beginning can impact you positively or negatively.
