Trying to claim business, but concerned about creating a second G+ page

Hi,

 

I'm Digital Executive at Membership Engagement Services (plus.google.com/+MembraCoUk) and trying to claim our business following receipt of a My Business postcard.

 

I've established how to, and am authorised to do so on behalf of our company, but I'm concerned that in doing so it will create a new G+ page for our business, which would not be appropriate as we already have one we use regularly.

 

Given I've been going through the Location section from our existing G+ page to try to do this, I would hope it wouldn't, but at the point I get to the point to claim I show up as using G+ as myself, not Membership Engagement Services, so I'm concerned it will.

 

Can someone please advise on this? Do I have to create a new G+ page through this step then request merging of the two pages? Or will accepting creation of a new G+ page actually just link it to the existing company G+ account or allow me the option to?

 

Our company business address is 33 Clarendon Road, London N8 0NW, United Kingdom. My contact number is 020 8829 2329.

 

Thanks in advance,

Bronwen.

Hi @Bronwen H

let me explain the situation (believe its pretty simple)

There is for  your business a brand page 

https://plus.google.com/+MembraCoUk/ and

there is for your  business an unverified local page. The MapMaker Link of the latter is Membership Engagement Services Ltd and a GMaps link is https://goo.gl/maps/uNZJvR5ARBM2

 

So far so good.

Verifying the latter page will create a verified page in your dashbaord.

(no option to avoid creating an other page)

 

So and in case you are managing the above  brand page you will have two pages to manage in your dashboard.

But luckily you then can connect both pages you are the page owner of them. 

Here is the "how to do":

Thanks Helmut!

I thought there must be some instruction about how to do that / what to do, but I hadn't been able to spot it.

Thanks also for a quick answer :)

Cheers,
Bronwen.
