1 Earn Extra Money as a Notary Public

Almost everyone knows that you can make money on the Internet. You can earn either through online advertising like Google Adsense, affiliate marketing, or selling information via ebooks. You can also offer or advertise your skills, knowledge, and services by doing freelance jobs. And speaking of freelancing, try your hand at something that won’t take too much of your time by becoming a notary public.

Notary public
For those who still don’t know, a notary, or notary public, is an official appointed by the state to perform notarial acts like witnessing the signing of documents and notarizing the signature as proof that the signer is in fact the same person named on the
document. To put it simply, a notary is an impartial observer in the processing of any legal agreements.

Aside from that, you also have the option to upgrade yourself as an electronic notary or enotary.

An enotary has almost the same duties and responsibilities of the traditional pen-and-paper notary. The only difference is that enotaries are authorized by the state to perform notarizations on electronic documents, aka electronic notarizations, or enotarizations. By becoming an enotary, you can notarized documents online -- anytime and anywhere in the world.

Anyone who is at least 18 years of age, and is a legal resident of the state in which he or she is residing, is eligible to become a notary public in any part of the United States. All you have to do is meet the requirements and submit an application form. Although, the notary application requirements and procedures may vary in each state.

If you’re interested to be appointed as enotary, make sure that your state offers enotary commissions. You can view the Virginia Electronic Notary Application Instructions page as an example of how an enotary application looks like.

As a notary public, you can already earn a decent amount of money for each document that you are going to notarize. For every single notary service, you may earn as little as $2 or as much as $10 or more, depending on the type of document. Rates may also vary in each state.

Lastly, it is very important to note that just like any profession, notaries public must also abide by the law and be always responsible in doing their jobs at the best of their capacities.
