Brand not working for second business...

I have 2 related but separate businesses, with separate gmails and separate websites: a face painting business which has been successfully listed for a while, and a body painting business. I would like them to each show up via google my business in searches. I recently added the bodypaint business as a "brand" since I travel to customers and photo studios, rather than having a storefront. I would love to show up in search results for a wide area (not necessarily centered around my home).


I'm not sure if "brand" is the way to go for the body painting business?


Also, I was never asked to verify the brand & don't see a place to request that-- I only typed in a city name & zip. The body painting business is not showing up as a sidebar result when I search for that business, and when I search for it in maps, my facepainting business comes up instead.


Should I do this differently? For the bodypainting brand, I also can't find anyplace to add address details or change my category, which is just Entertainment right now, though I can post and I can "follow" myself.


My businesses are Brenda's Face Painting in Boulder Creek California,

and Brenda Leach Art Body Painting

Hi Brenda


A 'brand' page does not show up in searches outside of Google+, so if you want people to find your business via regular searches you will need to delete that page and create a Service Area Business page instead.
