Step #1 Create a gmail account for your business
You need a Gmail account for your business. Got to www.accounts.google.com You will use this gmail address for your Google+ listing, your website analytics, and your webmaster tools account (if you have this set up).
Step #2 Go get your business listing
Once you’ve created an account and gotten your gmail address – it’s time to go get your listing. Start, by going to Google My Business and click on the green button that says “Start Now”.
Step #3 Enter your business’s information
Once you click on the green “Sign In” button you’ll see a map with a box that prompts you to enter your business information. If you are not signed into your business gmail account already, you will need to do that first.
Start entering your business name first and you will see that Google will start to fill in the information for you.
When you see your listing click on it. Then click the blue button at the bottom that says “Continue.”
On the next screen, you will then see a box like the image below, in the upper left hand corner. Check the box that says “I am authorized to manage this business and I agree to the terms of service.” Then click the blue “Continue” button.
Step #4 Choose the method of verification
From here you may be given the option to either get a post card mailed to the address you verified was your business address, or in some instances a phone call will be used for verification. The phone call is much quicker, so I would suggest you go that route if offered, but make sure the number listed is correct and you are by the phone.
Phone call verification method
If you are able to choose the phone call verification method, Google will call and give you a 5-6 digit code. When you click on the “Call me now” button you will be brought to the next screen where you will enter the code they give you.
Mail verification method
If you choose to have Google mail you a code, it will take about 3 to 5 days for a post card to arrive. Google says it takes 1 to 2 weeks, but it’s usually a lot quicker, so keep your eye on your mail for a 4×6 postcard that says Google. Then go to Step #5
Step #5 Post card/Mail verification
If you are successful and have entered the code correctly, the next page you see will look something like this. When you see the small white badge with the check mark in it that means that your Google Plus Page is verified.
