Here we are going to cover how to market your notary business on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, check out our How to Create a Notary Blog. We have covered How to Market your Notary Business with a Facebook Page as well so we recommend checking that out.
Market Your Notary Blog
So you already have a blog, but are looking for some smart next steps? Put that typewriter away! We have some serious ideas here.
Link to your blog from your FindNotary profile. This provides a solid link to your blog, which Google values, and an easy way for people who find you on FindNotary to access you and see what your business is all about. These people want to find a notary so help make it as easy as possible.
Link to your FindNotary Profile from your blog. This will help people on your site check out all of your information on FindNotary and provides an easy topic to write about. Often times, we hit a road block on what to write about, but this is an easy topic. Also, this might bring your customers to your FindNotary profile so they can leave positive reviews to help bring you more exposure.
Post your Blog on your Social Media Channels. You have spent time to build a following on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+ or wherever else you hangout so promote your blog and your online profiles on these sites. Another site to check out is StumbleUpon, which is a great site to generate traffic for any place you are listed online. Submit your blog, FindNotary profile, Yelp account, etc. to StumbleUpon. Trust us!
Post on our Social Media Channels. Post your blog or FindNotary profile on our social media channels or mention us, and we’ll promote you for you! Come post on our Facebook wall, mention us Twitter, tag us on Google+, or even LinkedIn so we can really engage with each other today.
Post as a Guest Blogger or have People Guest Post on your Blog. Just contact us if you would like to guest post on the FindNotary blog OR contact us if you would like us to guest blog on your site (free content and networking at the same time!). We will promote these posts across all of our social channels. Also, you can look for other notaries throughout FindNotary with blogs to start cross-promotion depending on location.
Post your blog on Local Directories. Get listed on Google Places, Yahoo Local, Yelp, and other local directories and link to your blog, social profiles, and professional profiles like FindNotary.
Be Active on Notary Forums. Fellow notaries and people looking for notaries are spending lots of time on these notary forums so don’t you think you should, too? Look for questions that you can answer or ask questions that you can answer as well and get active. Just like on our Notary Forum, it’s a great way to promote your content by answering questions and find potential clients, while promoting your business.
Be real. This might be listed last, but could be the most valuable. People value authenticity online. With so much going on in everybody’s lives, be yourself. Be original. And be honest!
