How to Create and Setup a Brand Page in Google+

Google+ was launched a few months back when it was a limited invite-only service. Later in September, it was open to the public. Unlike Facebook, Google+ did not allow businesses to have a Brand Page till now, and a few businesses who had created a profile as a personal account were banned by the Google+ team.

Finally, Google launched Brand Pages on Google+ which gives a go ahead to brands and businesses to create their own brand / product pages. We created one for Technolism, do check out Technolism Google+ Brand page here.
