Question One: When I try to set up my company’s Google Plus account, it only lets me create a personal account. I must be missing something… could you help? Thanks!

Our Response:  You should be able to create a Google Plus business page by going to this Google Plus Business page and selecting the correct category for your brand or product. Please note that you do need to maintain a personal Google Plus page in order to create a Google Plus Business Page.

In addition, be sure to choose the “Local Business or Place” option if you own a storefront business and focus on a geographic audience.  Let us know if you are still experiencing issues signing up for Business page, and we can help you more.

Question Two: I’m just starting out, so I don’t think we have enough customers to put together a testimonial page at this time. Any ideas?

Our Response: Feel free to skip creating a testimonials page for now, but we encourage you to ask customers for reviews on local review websites like Yelp, Google Local, Yahoo Local, and others in order to grow and promote your business! You can always create a testimonials page later on. Another idea is to create an About Us or Team page.
