My Business Page vs. Brand Page

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I currently have a My Business page and a Google+ page for my business, Space Oddity Films. Several questions on this topic:

 

1. What are the differences between the two pages?

 

2. Is my Google+ page a sub-page of My Business account? How are they connected?

 

3. Can I use the Google+ page (as is with the vanity URL /spaceoddityfilms) without the My Business page?

 

4. Why do three accounts show when I click my avatar on the top right? Is one of them My Business page, and the other as my brand page? What is the third?

 

5. On YouTube, there seems to be an empty YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLR9S-bWWBE3AZnE1KTSlSA) associated with My Business page. Can I safely delete this channel WITHOUT affecting my main channel? (https://www.youtube.com/c/spaceoddityfilms)

 

6. When I Google "space oddity films google plus," the link is broken. When can we expect https://plus.google.com/+spaceoddityfilms to start showing in search results?

regarding your two provided links:

 

https://plus.google.com/+spaceoddityfilms is a brand page while 

https://plus.google.com/108601910088700519844 seems created as a local page but you seem not verified it with Google.

I'm awaiting the location verification postcard from Google re: verification.

Is there a way to delete the local page while keeping the brand page?

Do you make in-person contact with your customers?

as long as you didn't verify the local page (by entering the requested PIN) you are fine deleting the local page again from your dashboard.

 

After you verified it you can't get rid of showing the local content on GMaps anymore.

Occasionally, but we aren't retail and don't have a storefront.

How do I delete the local page without affecting my Google+ page? The Google+ page (which seems to be a brand page?) seems to be connected to the local page, and only accessible within the My Business section.
