It was in June of 2002 when I was introduced to the Office of the Notary Public and the Notary Signing Agent (NSA) aka Title Insurance Producer Independent Contractor (TIPIC) profession. A Notary Signing Agent came to my home to conduct a refinance loan closing. After the NSA finished the closing, in approximately 45 minutes, I looked at him and asked 2 questions, (1) “What do you do?” and (2) “How can I do what you do?” And the rest is history, I immediately became a Notary Public, Notary Mentor, Notary Instructor and Notary Signing Agent.
However, in June of 2002, I was a couple of months shy of achieving my certification in Website Design and Development from Graduate School USA in Washington, DC. Having earned my certification (after 2 1/2 years of riding the Metro train from Capitol Heights to Washington, DC two evenings a week), I began developing websites for clients. However, my true focus was developing my Notary Public profession and teaching others to achieve the same.
Today, with the exponential growth of technology, I relish the opportunity to help notary professionals promote their businesses, enrich their skill set and save money at the same time. I thought, “Why not teach Notaries how to build and develop their own websites at a minimal cost?” And that’s where we are today. A website adds credibility to each notary professional's business and provides an excellent promotional marketing tool. I will be your coach.
So, how to get started? You do not have to wait for the next demo session, you can get started now by following the steps below:
1. Purchase a “Personal Website Builder” package. The website builder package provides a template that allows you to set up, develop, and manage your site. It is similar to renting a storefront in a shopping mall; instead, your storefront is displayed on the worldwide web. Just like a storefront requires a monthly rental fee, there is also a monthly fee ($5.99) for hosting your website on the worldwide web at a minimal cost.
2. Get a web address for your website by purchasing a “domain name”. What is a domain name? In layman terms, a domain name is the text that your client types into a browser window to reach your website. For instance, the domain name for my website is ‘trustedagentservicesgroup.com’. If you already have a domain name, it can be transferred to domain2go.biz.
3. Once you have purchased the Personal Website Builder package and your domain name (optional if you already have a domain name), complete the Affordable Website Package Registration Form to request permission to use Trusted Agent Services Group, LLC copyrighted “notarial template wording” that can be used to customize for your website.
4. And there you are! Web design and development training - FREE plus a coach and mentor.
