How do I change my business type from Service Area page to Brand page?

I am new to this. Under Choose Your Business Type, I selected Service Area page instead of Brand page for my online ebook business and now I don't seem to be able to change that. Do I delete the page and start again or will I lose my business name? Any advice would be much appreciated!

 Hi @Liz P,

 

I'm assuming you haven't done any verification of your page yet, correct? If so, yes you can delete the unverified listing from your dashboard and start the process over to create a brand page.

 

Best regards,

Meghan

Hi Meghan,

I'm having a similar issues, but the Service page was verified. Do I need to 'unverify' first?

Meghan, that is seems like sound advice, to just delete and start the process over. BUT - in my case, the process didn't offer to input business type, much less other ino. Am getting frustrated in this. Can someone please assist?
