What is considered solicitation? I have business cards that I would like to leave my signers when I do the closings but am afraid to violate the non-solicitation policies that the signing services have. Is leaving my business cards in violation of this policy?

We notaries spend a lot of time on this forum and many others trying to find out who to sign up with, how to market, where to get work, etc etc., when the answer is right in the palm of our hands. I’m sure most if not all of us have had business cards made up - and if you haven’t I strongly suggest you do…it’s the investment that keeps on giving - but do we always have them on us? Do we always hand them out or are they home in the desk drawer or in our briefcase without our having easy, ready …
I’ve been putting to work some tips and advises from this post and I’m starting to see results, little by little. It is true what one person mentioned here, you don’t want to go along just with signing agencies, escrows and titles are the big fishes in this business, for us NSA.

You can also go to realtor events that title officers may …
First, figure out what you’ll need to charge to be profitable!! Travel is a MAJOR factor (car expenses, travel time) and you’ll probably only be doing one notarization 95% of the time. Create a bunch of Flyers on computer and drop off at the locations. Leave Flyer & a few business cards. Replenish both every time you go to a particular location. Put your business on all the free sites…Yellow Pages, Yelp, etc. It will probably not become a large part of your business, but every little bit c…

Is it okay to let them know you do GNW as well if they need a notary in the future?
