Google+ Business Pages are here! So how do you get one? We’ve put together a list of what you’ll need to know to get started.
First you’ll need to log in to Google+. After you’ve signed in to Google simply click on your name found in the top left hand corner:
From here visit https://plus.google.com/u/0/pages/create
Choose your category carefully. If you’re a local business or place, your Google+ page will be linked to your Google Places Account. From there you’ll be able to choose the correct listing, complete with a map and any other details you’ve entered.
On the top left hand corner of your Google+ business page you’ll see a small dropdown arrow underneath the name of your page. From here you’ll be able to switch between your personal and Google+ business page.
To get your own badge visit: https://developers.google.com/+/plugins/badge/config
Be sure to have the number string of your Google+ page handy (find this in the URL), you’ll need to paste it in the corresponding field. You’ll even be able to customize text for your Google+ button. If you’re not a coder we do not suggest you implement this button, speak to someone who is qualified and has FTP access.
