So you have a Facebook fan page, a Twitter account, LinkedIn and possibly a You Tube Channel for your business. But do you have the latest addition to the social media circuit – a Google+ page for your business? Fear not, for I’ve put together a step by step guide to setting up a page (including some nice screenshots).

So, step 1 – sign in to Google+ using your Gmail account details and create a public Google profile (if you don’t already have one).

Step 2 – once you’ve signed in you’ll have an option to Create a Google+ page

So now that the page has been created, there are various options available to you:

  • Start the conversation – post on your page
  • Connect your website – get the badge
  • Tell the world – this contains the url to your page
  • Build your circles
  • Google+ Direct Connect – make it easy for users to find your Google+ page from Google Search
  • Hangouts – connect directly with your community via live video chats for up to 9 people
  • +1 Button to add to your website so that users can recommend your content

So that’s it – enjoy and have fun creating your page. And if you would like to add my page to your circles please do so –
