How to create a Google Plus (Google+) Page for Business

1. Create your own Google+ Account first. (If you already have a Google+ account, you can skip this step)

Note: If your official business email is using the Google mail server, it is a lot easier to create the Google+ account using it. However; if you are using your own mail server then you need to create your Google account first so that you can create your Google+ account.

The You+ button can be found at the top left side of the home page.

Click on it and start filling up your company/business information such as business description, website URL and a lot more.  Start inviting other people to use/join your page. The Google+’s  step by step instruction is like a walk in the park.

Note: Make sure you choose to make your Google+ Page visible to “anyone on the web” should you wish to maximize your business exposure through search and social via Google properties.
