Google + Business Page – How to Start

November 16, 2011

So you have a Facebook page, a Twitter account and a Linked In profile, do you want to more?

Well with Google+ becoming a great social media tool, they have introduced a business page to their already great site. Here’s mine.

But how do you do it?

Step 1

Visit http://www.google.com/+/business/  and select Create a Business Page. You will need to be logged into your Google+ account first so if you are not do this too.

Step 2

Next you need to select your category:

  • Local Business or Place
  • Product or Brand
  • Company, Institution or Organization
  • Arts, Entertainment or Sports
  • Other
Step 3
If you have selected Local Business or Place, then find your location in Google using your country and primary phone number. This links in with your Google Place, if you don’t already have one then this is a great time to add one too!
Step 4
Customising your profle are quite limited so use what you can. Add a profile picture, ideally your logo and a tagline, utilising your USP in only 10 words!
Step 5
Promote your page through all your other social media accounts and on your website!
I hope this has helped. If you are still struggling or haven’t the time to do this then pop over to my site to see my packages.
