Are we a business or a brand or .....???

(Also, Can you convert a "business" page to a brand page?)

 

Since we are a vacation rental, I don't want our address on the business page. So I *think* I should take the page I just created as a business and make it a brand instead. Since you can't verify without an address. Or if you have other ideas, I'd love to hear them.

 

Thanks in advance for your ideas and advice!

 

Please include the following with your question:
1. Full business name  - Adele's Retreat
2. Current business address  -  Brevard NC, 28712
3. Current telephone number  - 434-981-6756
4. Google+ URL - I don't think we have a google+ url that I can share yet.

Guessing (but not sure) you refer to a "biz page" as a local business page

Note both local and brand pages are business pages (or pages of "GoogleMyBusiness")

 

And nope you unfortunately can yourself convert a local page to a brand page.

You can try contacting business support explainig them having made an error and ask them for help to get the local page taken down or converted to a brand. Not sure they can help you.

Hi Helmut,

It looks like the business page won't show up to anyone if I don't verify it, so I suppose I can just abandon it. Thanks for the reply! I'll just make a brand page and be done :-)
