Create Google+ Page
One of the biggest advantages of Google+ is it allows you to create Google+ pages for your business, and the format addresses many of the problems Facebook pages have not yet resolved. If you haven’t yet, go and set up a Google+ Page for your business right away.
Selecting a Category
Google+ will walk you through creating your Google+ Page. The most important choice you’ll have to make is picking the best category.
Once you’ve selected your category, it will prompt you to add your contact information, which will differ slightly for each category. Have your phone number handy if you’ve selected “Local Business or Place.”
It will also allow you to designate who can see your site.
It’s pretty easy to set up and, of course, include your perfect profile photo (the one you are using for all your social networks).
Where is My Page?
However, one of the most common complaints from new Google+ users has been: “I can’t find my page!”
To find your newly created page, go to the top-left corner and look beside your Profile picture. Your pages will be listed and you can access them via the drop-down arrow.
Share, Share, Share
Share it with your Circles! (As well as everywhere else you can think of!)
You can use your new Google+ Page to share:
- Anything else you can think of!
In short, everything you’d share on a Facebook page . . . only people looking for your page or the information it provides will find it much more easily in Google Search results.
Be sure to use Google+ badges or your Page URL on all your sites — as well as calls to action.
