Google just announced that they have released ‘pages’ for Google+ for profits and non-profits. A new social media real estate land grab/gold rush has begun. There is gold in them there social media hills! It was so simple to create a page on Google+ I thought I would give you a quick step by step guide on how I did it in around 5 minutes.

Step 1 – Create a page

You’ll see at the bottom right hand corner a neat little button and graphic called “Create a Google+ page” Click on that.

Step 2 – Pick a category

You’ll get a chance to pick a category in this step. I think they haven’t quite figured this out yet. I tried to find a blog page as a type of page but I could only find that in arts, entertainment and sports which doesn’t really fit what I need so I’ve created my page under product and brand, not because I think it is the perfect category, but because it is closest to where I think I am positioned.

Step 3 – Customise your page’s public profile

This is a base level way of personalising your profile. I have uploaded a 200 x 200 pixel graphic and added my text from my Facebook page. Boom! Simple.

Step 4 – Spread the word out about your new Google+ page

You can quickly and easily spread the word out on your personal Google+ page straight away. They have made it so simple. They have thought this through really well.
