Niches for a Georgia Mobile Notary to Consider
A Georgia mobile notary, also known as a traveling notary, is a commissioned mobile notary public that travels to the preferred location of their clients at a mutually agreed-upon time to carry out a notarial act.
A mobile notary signing agent may not always have as much loan signing work as they would want. That's why the most successful mobile notaries look for new ways to diversify their business.
Typically, this entails identifying business niches and areas of expertise that produce consistent income streams. Listed below are a few niches that a mobile notary can explore:
- Assisting Senior Citizens in Healthcare Facilities: As a mobile notary, you may choose to offer your services to patients in healthcare facilities or nursing homes. This is one of the most lucrative niches to explore as most elderly patients in hospitals require the assistance of a mobile notary for notarization of a trust document or financial power of attorney. To explore this niche, you can leave your business cards at the front desk of healthcare facilities and nursing homes located in your neighborhood. However, before taking up such assignments, it is advisable to make sure the signer is not under heavy medication and is in a position to sign as you cannot notarize someone's signature if they are not conscious of what they are signing.
- Notarizing for Inmates in Prisons: This is yet another lucrative niche for a Georgia mobile notary to consider. Though mobile notaries are often hesitant to notarize legal documents for prisoners or inmates, this type of assignment can be quite rewarding for one's career. Frequently, inmates' families seek the assistance of mobile notaries to have documentation notarized to reclaim their confiscated vehicle. However, gaining access to the prison where the convict is incarcerated is one of the most difficult challenges in providing such services. Each jail or prison has its own set of rules for gaining entrance. While some require mobile notaries to undergo a background check, others may let anybody with a current Notary credential enter. Additionally, mobile notaries should be aware that working in these environments can lead to the unexpected--such as being stuck inside a jail or prison during an emergency lock down. Although mobile notaries have to undergo a lot of hurdles to conduct this type of notarization, it can provide them with new and interesting opportunities to assist individuals in their communities while also increasing their income.
- Resolving Family Matters: Many mobile notaries in Georgia mostly assist families with loan signatures in order to help them achieve their dream of purchasing a home. Similarly, many mobile notaries also help families when they need to notarize adoption papers to adopt a child. Adopting a child from a different nation calls for a lot of formalities and requires a lot of items to be notarized, thereby creating ample opportunities for mobile notaries to grow their business.
So you see business niches can be found in a variety of places, including hospitals, prisons, government buildings, even people's homes. You only have to be willing to look for them.
