After that, you have an option to create either a personal channel or one for business. When creating a business channel, the categories available are:

  • Product/Brand
  • Company institution/Organisation
  • Art, Entertainment or Sports.
  • Other.

Consequently, a new Google+ page will be created for your brand.
