Local Business or Place – includes hotels, restaurants, places, stores, services, etc
Product or Brand – may include apparel, cars, electronics, financial services, etc.
Company, Institution, or Organization – including companies, organizations, institutions, non-profits, etc
Arts, Entertainment or Sports – may include movies, tv, music, books, sports, shows, etc.
Other – If your page doesn’t fit in any of the categories
The most common setup is for Local Business or Place so you may want start it by going through the options following these steps:
1. Indicate your country and primary phone number and then locate your area according to the results of your input.
2. Add your basic info specifically street address, phone numbers, and category
3. Select your visibility to “Any Google+ user”
4. Finally, confirm your info and click Create button.
After that, you upload your page’s profile photo with 150 pixels across by 158. You may want to skip telling people about your new page since the page don’t have content as of that moment.

Google+ default circles are shown and you may want to edit by adding your friends, renaming your circles into something like customers, VIPS, trusted members, and the likes. It depends upon how you categorise your friends and group them into Circles.
Once they’re segregated you can share post messages directly to them and promote your products and or offer free coupons or discounts.
