Google+ Launches Pages

Google+ Launches Pages

Ever since the launch of Google+ businesses have been expecting this moment – the launch of branded pages. Today, Google finally released  this option for companies. So, should you jump right in and get your Google+ branded page today?

To see what Mashable has to say about this, click here.

I did some research to find out what are the main differences between a Google+ profile and a page. Check it out below:

Companies are jumping on Google+ today to get their pages reserved. My opinion is that if you are a big brand and many of your followers are on Google+,  you would want to do the same. For the smaller brands, Google+ needs more traction, i.e. more people to start using it. Yet, this doesn’t mean you should wait. Reserve your page today even if you are not currently using Google+ in your social media. Why? The video below explains it very well. In short, businesses don’t make people happy. People do.

To help you get your Google+ page I went through the process myself. It’s really easy and it takes 10 min to complete.

Here’s what you need to do:

Once you sign in with your profile, and click on Create a Google+ page you will see this screen. Choose a category that matches your company.
