Standard fee in 2017 - $90 (only I rarely go out for $90). The latest is WFG. Before that, Vantage Point Title. Before that, ServiceLink ($87 w/faxbacks) - no, thanks. Working for ServiceLink would be like earning minimum wage after expenses.

If we're that valuable to your business, then SHOW US! Actions speak much, much louder than your smooth talk.

Then SHOW US???

You are asking them to "look out for you" at their expense. That aint gonna happen. Every dollar not paid to you is greater profit for them. Break free! Find OTHER revenue from your notary status. It's MUCH easier to earn from individuals directly compared to being at the end of the food chain. Print up a LOT of nice business cards and distribute to every doctor, store, and business for a (initially) 5 mile circle. You CAN succeed if you break the dependence chain to "signings". Re-read your applicable laws, find out what ELSE you can do - drop El Cheepo signing for easier work that adds up quickly. There are many in that 5 mile circle that simply do not know that you are willing to go to their shop. VISIT them, market actively and directly. Waiting for low paying buzzards to "come around" to feeling an obligation to pay you more is not your best option.
