  4. 4. #mymoTraining Setting up your Page • To set up a Business page you must first create a personal profile so you can act as the owner. (the owner will remain anonymous) • Make sure you create your personal profile using your real name not the company name. • Everyone who has a gmail address will automatically have a Google+ profile you just might not know it! – When you log into your gmail you will see your name with a ‘+’ next to it, click on this and it will take your through to your profile. • If you don’t have a gmail address sign up and follow the above. • If you already have a Business YouTube account set up with a gmail address you should use this address and profile to create your Business Page so you can link the two accounts up easily. www.businesstrainingmadesimple.co.uk
