Places to Find General Notary Work in Southern California

Hi. I’ve just gotten my notary commission and am looking for platforms where I can find general notary work in Southern California. Thanks!

Try all the free sites Yelp, Yellowpages, etc. Type ‘notary near me’ into your browser & then create a free page with the ones that show up first. Do NOT ever, never, take the bait and agree to any pay-to-play gimmicks even the free sites try to entice you with. There is no ROI because, generally speaking, GNW does not pay in the thousands. Note, also, I know nothing about the So CA area.


@r.joshua.jones The insights conveyed above by @Arichter are :100:percent perfectly accurate, most importantly the excerpt by her in my post.

Congrats! Google business page will be your best friend, this is where I get most of my general notary work. Also make a simple flier and take your business cards too and try walking into businesses that would need a notary such as accountants, hospitals, nursing homes, jails ( I’ve don’t a few ! ) even your local ups and banks because they have notaries but can’t notarize many documents! They will refer you if you make a good impression as oppose to them just saying no to the customer. Also follow up by going back to those places to keep the momentum. Good luck!


Thank you for your advice! I appreciate you.

Thank you for sharing all that golden wisdom! I will be following your advice.
