No longer an option to select 'Brand" when chossing business type

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am the Digital Marketing Executive at a company called Home Telecom. We recently rang Google to have our local Google business page removed as we wanted to start it up again as a brand page, which is what other businesses in this field have and since we don't have customers coming to our premises it wasn't relevant to have a local business page.


I am now attempting to set up a new Home Telecom Brand page, how this step no longer appears:



How do I either navigate to this step when setting up the business page? Or how do I achieve the same effect if this step has been removed?

@Home T


your screenshot shows an outdated ieiw of GoogleMyBusiness.

in this older view "Brand" is meant to create a G+ page inside of GoogleMyBusiness.

But sincee GoogleMyBusiness and G+ fell out of love and have been divorced since 4 or 5 month you can't create a G+ page via GoogleMyBusiness anymore


YOu still can create a brand page via G+ following this actual HC

(look bottom the pag)
