Google announced the new Google+ Brand Pages today. I’ve just created a new brand page for Famous Bloggers on Google+ and thought to take you thought the process, however there is no fancy design or big tricks, this is a totally straight forward process that you will actually enjoy!
So, let’s get into businesses right a way!
1- Create Google+ Brand Page
The first thing you need to do it go to the create page → Create Google+ Brand Page

As you can see from the screenshot above, there is a few categories to choose from, you can create pages for:
- Local Business or Place
- Product or Brand
- Company, Institution or Organization
- Arts, Entertainment or Sports
- Other (you choose this if your page doesn’t fit in the above categories)
2- Add your Page Info
In my case I will just choose to feature Famous Bloggers as a Company, this is how I see it. So, I listed in under consulting and business services, and I set it to be publicly visible to everyone, of course I want every Google+ user to see it!
Make sure to read Google+ Pages Additional Terms of Service before your proceed.
3- Hit the Create Button
Once you hit the create button, Google+ will give you a message that says “You are now using Google+ as this page. Your posts, comments, and notifications will be from this page.”, hit the OK button next to it to confirm!
Now it’s time to customize the page!
4- Customize your page’s public profile
Simply add the tagline that describe your business and set a profile photo, this could be your logo!
5- Get the word out!
Spread the word out about your new page by sharing it on Google+
