How to Pick a Good Domain Name: Best Practices for Notary Websites

notary marketing tips Oct 12, 2021

How to pick an effective domain name for your notary website?

"When selecting a domain name for your mobile notary website, it is important to make sure that it is both distinctive and memorable."

 

1. Make it short and easy to memorize
It is recommended to use short and simple domain names for your website to avoid the chances of mistyping or remembering it. Complex domain names often lead to forgetting and missing it for any future deeds.
The ideal length of a domain name is 8 characters and so you should fit it near this range.

2. Avoid using numbers or symbols

Avoid using any numbers of symbols in the domain name. In cases where numbers are used, it becomes difficult for a user to judge if the numeral would be spelled or typed as a digit.

For example, 7starluxury.com should be avoided as it can lead to confusion while spelling it as seven-star luxury or 7starluxuary.

Similarly, in the case of symbols, they are often misplaced or missed leading to other confusions.

Notaries, You Don’t Needy a Flashy Website If You Want Show UP Google

notary marketing tips Oct 12, 2021

"You don't need a flashy website to be found on Google"

Graphics are a good way to get your website noticed and help with SEO. However, if they're flash-based, it will have the opposite effect of your primary goal of getting more traffic and driving more sales.

The websites which are done in Flash can put you in trouble because of the following reasons:

1. It makes your Website Slow
While using Flash adorns the website’s appearance, at the same time it increases the page loading time. Because of the Flash animations, even high-speed Internet users face difficulty in accessing websites due to the delay in webpage loading. Mostly this frustrates the users, and thus they consider leaving your site, opting for the less flashy one built-in HTML instead.

2. Google does not recommend Flash
Search Engines never encourage the use of Flash on your websites; instead, Google avoids the websites that use Flash. Search Engines never index your sites because they do not understand Flash or any...

Hiring a Signing Agent: What You Need to Know

You can now become a notary, and start facilitating loans. All you have to do is find out if you're eligible for this position in your state, and then get certified!

What is a Signing Agent?

 

A signer is responsible for facilitating the closing and signing of mortgage loans. A signed loan approval document is called a “certificate of decision.” It constitutes the legal closing of the loan. A signer can work for or with a mortgage company, such as Quicken Loans, Orchard Mortgage, or Arvo Mortgage, or independently. Once the assignment is signed, the signing agent should then complete the NSA Certification Process (RMA).

Top benefits of incorporating your notary business

Top benefits of incorporating your Notary business

One of my most popular blog posts is this one, which is about the top benefits of incorporating your business. Here are some of the benefits of incorporating your business, which most entrepreneurs don't think about, but should.

 

The Advantages of Incorporating Your Business

 

The advantage of incorporating your business (and it's also one of the things that stop many new business owners from taking the leap) is that it can help you manage your assets more efficiently. The valuation and taxation of your business are generally much simpler than if you were running it as a sole trader and under UK tax law, you may be able to structure your business as a limited company (like the web-hosting company I own), which means you pay less tax.

 

You may also be able to invest in some of your shares for the first time since the share price will be based on the value of the company (and a lot of companies are share-based, which...

What does it mean to be an LLC

What It Means To Be An LLC: The Importance Of Having A Limited Liability Company

 

An LLC is a limited liability company. The word "limited" in this context means that the members of the LLC have limited liability for the company's debts and obligations. This means that if the LLC cannot pay its debts or obligations, the creditors cannot go after the personal assets of the LLC's members.

 

 

What is a limited liability company?

 

An LLC is similar to a corporation, but there are important differences. A corporation is an incorporated entity, and to incorporate it, you must have a state-issued business license and federal tax identification number. A limited liability company has fewer rights and protections, so the members do not have liability for debts or obligations.

 

You do not need to incorporate an LLC. You can incorporate without incorporating the LLC. However, incorporation is the best way to minimize the liability that a business could incur as a...
