I still don’t know how I feel about Google+; it seems so cumbersome and clunky to me, even after being out there for a while. Regardless, I think it’s still important to be there now – as both yourself and as your business.
Step 1: Personal Page
To get started, you’ll need your own Google+ account. (If you already have one, proceed to Step 2.) If not, go to Google Plus and log into your Google account. You’ll be taken through the steps of creating your G+ account pretty quickly.
Step 2: Let’s go!
Go to your Google Plus page and click the “More” option, followed by “Pages”.
Step 3: Create your page
Click “Create New Page”.
Step 4: Pick a category
What type of business do you have?
- Local Business/Place: You’ll need your local phone number.
- Product/Brand: Choose from a category.
- Company/Institution/Organization: Choose from a category.
- Arts/Entertainment/Sports: Choose from a category.
Step 5: Create your page
Fill out the information indicated on the next screen.
Step 6: Multiple personalities
Google Plus will now take you through a tutorial of how you can edit/alter your business page; starting with your ability to switch back and forth between your personal page and your business page.
Step 7: Fill it all out
Complete your profile by clicking “Edit profile” and do your best to fill out all of the information possible.
Step 8: Start sharing!
You’re all done….so it’s time to start exploring and start sharing!
