Step 3: When you have set up an account with Google, remain signed in, or if you already have a G-mail account (a Google account), sign in to begin the process and then continue to sign into Google +.

Step 4: As you first log into G+ it is important to setup and fill in your profile. This will provide you with more flexibility and options for using your G+ account in the future, so click on “Create Profile”.

Step 5: Fill out your personal information and the username that you want everyone to see, then click on the “Upgrade” option.

Step 6: On the next screen, G+ will ask you to add anyone you might already know from a suggested friends list. You can do this now if you like, but you can always wait to begin building your circles at a later time.


I will be covering building a following in much greater detail, later in the next training module (Module B). To move on to the next step just click “Next” on your Google+ screen and select the next page of this tutorial.

Thanks for the training, Chris. I´ve put it in my library for now, but will soon start with Google plus and put it to good use.

After reading the intro (and if you already have your photo and cover image in place), then I would go straight to Module B for building up your mutual following and circles. :)

If you are wanting to change everything, but the name and associated Google account, then you can keep the current G+ page and simply change the appearance of it.

If you want to change the name and underlying account info, then I would recommend starting the process by setting up a whole new account in Google...the disadvantage to that it is like beginning all over again.

This is why I always recommend setting up a personal account featuring you...and then operate it as a business account. You put your personal picture there, but the cover graphic is your business.

Then, if your business changes or you add more businesses, you simply change the cover image. This works well, because you are really selling yourself as a big part of your website's credibility

I cover these things in Module A of the G+ Traffic Training, as well as how to set things up from the start with a new Google account.

Hope that helps. :)
