Hey guys. We have a G+ page (https://plus.google.com/+Rfelements) - its type is "Local page" but we would like to change it to " Brand page". Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi Frantisek

There's no way to change a Local page to a Brand page.

Why do you want to do this? Is it because you are not technically a Local business and so not entitled to a Local Page? If that is the case, then you need to contact GMB support via one of the options here: https://support.google.com/business/contactflow and ask them to remove the page entirely.

Unfortunately that does mean that you will end up losing all your Google+ posts.
