Merging Google + Brand Page with Google My Business Page

Tyson Downs

Here's the scenario.

A client of mine has been using a Google + page for status updates and followers for some time. It is not a + Local page and there is not the option to leave a review on the page. It just has the 'about' and 'posts' tabs.

The client wants the ability for customers to leave a review, however they do not want to lose all followers and posts that they have built up over time.

I read Mike's post about not being able to merge them, but unfortunately the info is a bit dated.

What would the best course of action be?

Hi Ty,

I announced a new option beginning of June in the Google Local IMPORTANT forum.
See if it may help.

<a href="">New Google Local Option - Switch Place Page Over to a G+ Brand Page</a>

Let me know if it sounds like that will do the trick.

(And should subscribe to that section of the forum, if you have not, so you don't miss anything critical.)
