    Google Profile Vs. Google Page - The difference?

    Today I decided to join Hootsuite having been recommended it. I have noticed a feature that allows the user to connect with a Google plus page, I assumed my standard personal profile was a "Google page" but apparently not. My question is are G+ pages worth creating to promote services such as freelance design when I already have an established Google+ account? The G+ pages provide categories such as brand or visual arts so I am curious if these pages have any notable benefits whether it be for SEO or branding?
