How to create a Google+ Local page

Google+ just launched Local and we have already covered that topic here. Just to recap Google+ local is to help users find restaurants and other fun places close to where there are at the current time. Google+ users can use local to find the best restaurants and places to visit in their localities. Local also offers a 30 point Zegat system where you can read reviews and write your own. It is therefore important for people who own local businesses to create a page catering to Google+ local. A must for merchants, local businesses and small businesses, a good way to promote your business online. 

Benefits of creating a Google+ local page:
Will have a map with locations
Your contact info like phone number, address and hours of business
You can create and manage Circles and join Hangouts like regular Google+ pages
You can also share content and create posts on your Local page
