This post goes over how to add a Facebook Story to your Facebook Business page from a computer.
Facebook Stories are becoming increasingly popular, with Facebook doing their best to push Stories by putting them at the very top of everyone’s News Feed.
To take advantage of this newer channel, many businesses are looking to publish Facebook Stories to their Facebook Business page.
How to add Facebook Stories to your Business page
To add a Facebook Story to your Business page, it is quite simple.
1. If you are on a computer, simply click the blue “+” next to your businesses main profile picture.
2. Next, create your Facebook Story. At the bottom of this popup box, you will see the options to post this to “Your Page’s Story” and “News Feed” already checked. If you do not want this Facebook Story also published as a normal post on your page, uncheck “News Feed”.
3. Click Share Now.
That’s it. Once posted, your page’s Facebook Story will be public for 24 hours, and will be shown above the News Feed to your followers.

Customizable UTM parameters – OneUp lets you customize UTM parameters so you can keep track of how your links are performing in Google Analytics.

Can you schedule GMB posts directly from Google?
Google My Business (aka GMB, Google Business Profiles, or GBP) posts are great and can help your SEO.
However, you’ve probably noticed that there is no way to schedule Google posts directly from your Google business listing:
So to schedule Google My Business posts, you NEED to use a scheduling tool that integrates with GMB, like OneUp.
OneUpsupports Google post scheduling, in addition to Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, YouTube, TikTok, Threads, and LinkedIn.
How to schedule Google posts (What’s New, Event, and Offer posts)
First, connect your Google My Business location(s) on the Accounts page:
Then click “Create a post”.
Then select which GMB locations you would like to post to (if you have more than one connected). You can post to multiple different Google My Business locations at the same time:
Then create your Google post, and add your image:
You can even click the “Auto-generate caption” button to have your post’s caption automatically written for you.
NOTE: OneUp also has a Custom Fields feature, where you can insert dynamic info (such as the unique address of each location) into the specific post for each GMB location.
Then choose whether you would like to also “Add the image to the Photos section of Google My Business”, and choose whether you want the post to be a What’s New (aka Update) post, an Event post, or an Offer post:
You can also choose “None” if you ONLY want the image to be scheduled to the Photos section of your Google My Business locations – and not publish as a Google post.
You can check out the post preview in OneUp to see how your post will look once published on GMB:
OneUp supports all Google My Business CTA button types (Learn More, Call, Book, Sign Up, Order Online, and Buy).
In addition to just scheduling posts, OneUp allows you to set GMB posts to automatically repeat at whatever interval you choose. For example, this post will repeat every week:
Then either post it now, or schedule your GMB post for a date in the future, or save your GMB post as a draft.
Team members and Post approvals
OneUp also supports adding unlimited team members, assigning them specific accounts, and granting users the ability to publish posts themselves, OR you can require that specific team member posts need to be approved by an Admin.
This post goes over how to schedule Facebook Stories.
OneUp allows you to schedule Facebook Stories directly to your Facebook Page:
OneUp also shows you a post preview of how your Facebook Story will look once it’s posted:

If you know of any other large Facebook groups that should be on the list, let us know in the comments. (Must have OVER 1 million members)
Need a way to schedule posts to multiple Facebook Pages at the same time?
OneUp is a social media scheduling tool that supports posting to Facebook Pages, Facebook Groups (that you are the Admin of), Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Threads, Pinterest, TikTok, YouTube, Stocktwits, and schedule Google My Business posts.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You can only schedule posts to multiple Facebook Groups at the same time if you are the Admin of EVERY SINGLE one of those Facebook Groups.
So you are looking to post to multiple Facebook Groups at the same time.
The first question is, are you trying to post to multiple Facebook Groups that you are only a member of?
Or are you trying to post to multiple Facebook Groups that you are the Admin of?
Posting to multiple Facebook Groups at the same time that you have joined and are only a member
If you are trying to post to multiple Facebook Groups where you are NOT the Admin, but are just a member, there is no Facebook-approved tool to do this.
Any tools that say they support this are violating Facebook’s terms of service, and will most likely result in your account getting temporarily or permanently banned.
I would recommend either posting manually in the Facebook Groups yourself, or hiring a Virtual Assistant (VA) to do this for you.
Posting to multiple Facebook Groups at the same time that you ARE the Admin of
OneUp is a Facebook-approved social media scheduling tool that allows you to schedule posts to multiple Facebook Groups at the same time (in addition to Facebook Pages, and other social networks).
HOWEVER, to use OneUp with a Facebook group, you MUST be one of the Group Admins. Facebook does not allow scheduling tools to post to Groups unless you are an Admin.
Using OneUp, you can connect your Facebook Groups and Pages by clicking the Facebook Connect button, then click “Create a post”:
First select which of your Facebook Groups (and/or Facebook Pages) you want to post to:
If you select a Facebook Group, you will see the option to post to the Facebook Group as either your personal profile, or post to the Facebook Group as your Facebook Page. (Note: Your Facebook Page MUST be an Admin of your Facebook Group to post as your Page to the Group)
Next, create your post:
You can add image(s), a video, or GIF to your post. OneUp has both a Canva integration and an Unsplash integration, so you can find and create images for your post, right inside of OneUp 🤓
You can set your post to publish once, or have it automatically repeat at whatever interval you choose:
Once done, you can either post it now to your multiple Facebook Groups (and Facebook Pages), schedule the post for the future, or save it to your Drafts folder.
Try scheduling your Facebook Group posts with OneUp
Go to OneUp and Connect your LinkedIn account(s) (you can connect both personal profiles and company pages)
Next click on the “Create a post” button
Choose which LinkedIn company pages or personal profiles you want to post to
Create your post, and optionally add a link preview, image, GIF, or video
Add a First Comment (if you want)
Select for it to post once, or choose to have the post repeat
Choose to either Post Now, or you can schedule your LinkedIn post for a date and time in the future
Here are some screenshots explaining the steps above
In OneUp, go to the Accounts page and connect your LinkedIn account(s). You can connect both LinkedIn personal profiles and company pages.
The next step is to click the “Create a post” button:
Once on the Create A Post page, select which LinkedIn accounts you’d like to publish this post to. If you have more than one LinkedIn account, you can choose to post to multiple personal profiles and company pages at the same time.
Then type in or paste in your LinkedIn post, and optionally add a link preview, image, GIF, or video to your post.
You can also @tag any company page in the text box (however tagging of personal profiles isn’t supported by LinkedIn’s API, so it can only be done on LinkedIn itself).
OneUp allows you to add photos, GIFs, or videos directly from your computer, or you can create an image in OneUp’s Canva integration, or choose a professional photo from the Pexels, Pixabay, or Unsplash integration:
Just like on LinkedIn itself, OneUp allows you to add up to 9 images for LinkedIn posts. Document attachments are supported as well.
While you are creating your LinkedIn post in OneUp, you will see a preview of how your post will look once published on LinkedIn:
Then choose whether you’d like to add a First Comment on your LinkedIn post:
If you add a First Comment, it will automatically be added as the first comment on your post whenever the post gets published.
When your post is good to go, in OneUp you can choose to either post it once, or have the post repeat automatically at whatever interval you choose
Example: This LinkedIn post is scheduled to repeat every three weeks.
Then choose to either Post Now, schedule your LinkedIn post for the future, or you can add it to your Drafts, where it will be saved for later.
In addition to LinkedIn, OneUp also supports Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Threads, YouTube, Pinterest, TikTok, and Google My Business.
Does OneUp support multi-image posts to LinkedIn? Yes, OneUp allows you to add up to 9 images on each LinkedIn post.
Does OneUp support tagging/mentioning in LinkedIn posts? Yes, you can tag any LinkedIn company page in OneUp by typing “@” and then the company page name. Unfortunately tagging/mentioning personal profiles is not supported by LinkedIn’s API, so it can only be done on LinkedIn directly.
Does OneUp support video posts to LinkedIn? Yes, OneUp supports video posts to both LinkedIn personal profiles and company pages. Videos will post to both LinkedIn company pages and personal profiles as a native video (meaning it looks the same as if you posted directly from LinkedIn, and it will autoplay 😊).

Here is a one-minute video showing how to schedule Linkedin posts using OneUp:
Why post content on LinkedIn?
LinkedIn is often overlooked as a social media marketing channel. With over 706 million users, LinkedIn has become one of the most popular social networks. And best of all, it’s free to use.
If you are selling Business-to-Business (B2B), having a presence on LinkedIn is a must.
A few years ago, LinkedIn may have had a reputation of being boring, stuffy, and impersonal social network.
But that has changed over the past few years. You will now find more personal posts and communication throughout LinkedIn.
On top of that, when you post on LinkedIn, the organic reach of your post has a much higher ceiling.
How many views does your average Facebook post get? If you are like most people, the answer is not many.
With LinkedIn, your posts have the potential to reach thousands, if not tens of thousands.
Why is that?
Well Facebook has 2.6 billion users. If every Facebook user posts just once a day, that is a lot of posts you are competing with. On top of that, Facebook decided to basically require you to Boost your post if you want any reach at all.
However, LinkedIn has a much smaller user base. That means fewer posts published each day, which means less competition for each of your LinkedIn posts.
On top of that, LinkedIn’s algorithm really wants to reward good posts.
LinkedIn wants to shed its reputation of being old and boring, so if you create a post that creates engagement and comments from your followers, LinkedIn’s algorithm will then show your post to thousands of other LinkedIn users.
LinkedIn posts (formerly known as status updates) are the standard way to publish something on LinkedIn. You create them by simply clicking the “Start a post” text box.
LinkedIn articles (formerly know as LinkedIn pulse) are more of a long-form post type, more similar to a blog post.
To create a LinkedIn article, click the “Write article” option.
It will then take you to the LinkedIn article creator.
So should I publish a LinkedIn post or article?
According to most experts, LinkedIn posts (the first one mentioned above) get you more reach.
However, LinkedIn articles have a longer shelf-life. LinkedIn articles are indexed by search engines, and can be found for months and years into the future by people searching on Google.
Typically, shorter form content should be a post. Posts have a character limit of 1,300, but once you get over 210 characters, it will require people to click the “See more” button to view the entire post.
However, longer LinkedIn posts typically perform better than shorter posts (but keep in mind the 1,300 character limit).
This is normally due to the fact that longer posts provide more value. Shorter LinkedIn posts are usually all fluff or “look at me” type posts.
If what you have to say cannot be written in 1,300 characters or less, then a LinkedIn article is the obvious choice.
Other times a LinkedIn article makes sense instead of a LinkedIn post would be when you have many images or screenshots that you want mixed in throughout your article, such as a “How to” guide.
LinkedIn company pages vs. personal profiles
LinkedIn supports both company pages and personal profiles. You can schedule posts on either using a social media scheduling tool.
However, there is no way to schedule a post directly on LinkedIn for either company pages or personal profiles.
Here are a few of the key differences:
Company pages represent collective organizations, while personal profiles represent individuals.
Your personal profile has connections. Your company page has followers.
You can only run ads on LinkedIn through a company page.
You must have a personal profile to set up a company page.
Your personal profile includes sections like Activity, Experience, Skills & Endorsements, Recommendations, and Interests. A company page includes sections like an Overview, About, Jobs, and People.
Here are a couple of rules for posting on LinkedIn:
Posts in a consistent manner
Speak your audience’s language
Dont link to irrelevant things
Narrow down your niche
What kind of LinkedIn posts go viral?
Make the first couples sentences compelling Your most memorable sentence needs to offer something that quickly makes different clients quit looking over. Just the initial 210 characters of a post are seen on LinkedIn before clients need to click “see more”, so you really want to catch their eye immediately.
Research The Right Topic One of the most important parts of creating successful LinkedIn content is researching a winning topic that will go viral by using specific keywords. You can identify previous viral posts on LinkedIn using BuzzSumo. Choosing the right topic with the help of some research will pay dividends, rather than just randomly choosing something to write about, which may have poor visibility and reach.
Reply to Comments A great way to increase the odds of your post going viral is to reply to comments after publishing your posts. In your reply, try to say something that encourages another reply from the other person. The more comments and engagement on the post, the further it signals to LinkedIn’s algorithm that this post should be shown to more people.
Repurpose previously successful content Did you post something on your blog that got a ton of views and shares? Maybe you posted something on Facebook a few months ago that was a big hit. Take those posts and repurpose them for a LinkedIn post.
Use LinkedIn Hashtags Yes, hashtags aren’t just for Twitter and Instagram. Using hashtags that many people follow gives you a much better chance to go viral on LinkedIn.
Post on LinkedIn at the optimal times If you post something on LinkedIn at 3:00 AM, almost nobody will see it. Without the initial burst of comments and likes, it will signal to LinkedIn’s algorithm that this post is not worth showing to other people. According to LinkedIn, the best time to post is early morning, lunchtime and early evening between Tuesdays and Thursdays. The absolute best time to post on LinkedIn is between 10 a.m and 11 a.m every Tuesday.
Add a Call-To-Action (put them in the first comment) Want to direct your readers to your website, or some other place? Put your call-to-action in the first comment of the post. Studies suggest that posts with no links in the main post perform better than posts with links, so add your link in the first comment, rather than in the post itself.
How often should I post on LinkedIn?
To keep a predictable presence and to develop your devotees on LinkedIn, it requires posting frequently. Studies recommend that posting on LinkedIn something like once a day is best
But physically posting something on informal organizations like LinkedIn consistently can be difficult.
You neglect, something comes up working, your canine ate your schoolwork, and so forth. There are a lot of reasons that a great many people don’t post on LinkedIn consistently.
To make things considerably more troublesome, LinkedIn doesn’t give a method for booking LinkedIn posts locally. That implies you would have to physically login to LinkedIn each time you need to post something, and preferably do it during top hours.
But you CAN schedule LinkedIn posts. You just need to use a social media scheduling tool, such as OneUp.
When you plan your LinkedIn posts, it empowers you to cluster all your post making into a solitary meeting, instead of attempting to recollect each day.
If you require an hour making LinkedIn posts, you can most likely concocted basically possibly 14 days worth of content for posting on LinkedIn.
The other advantage of utilizing a booking device for LinkedIn posts is that it permits you to plan posts for the ideal time each day.
That implies you don’t really have to be available during those great posting hours, you can simply plan your LinkedIn posts, and know that your posts will distribute during those pinnacle hours each day.
However, even if you plan your LinkedIn posts, it doesn’t mean you can just put everything on autopilot. You actually need to engage and reply to comments that you get on your LinkedIn posts
How to schedule LinkedIn Stories
In 2020, LinkedIn revealed LinkedIn Stories, a feature very similar to Instagram Stories, Facebook Stories, and Snapchat Stories.
However, in 2021, LinkedIn decided to shutdown LinkedIn Stories, so they no longer exist anymore.
How to schedule posts in LinkedIn Groups
LinkedIn Groups have never quite caught on like Facebook Groups, but there are still many large and active LinkedIn Groups.
However, LinkedIn does not provide a way to schedule posts to LinkedIn Groups: There is no way to do it on LinkedIn itself, and LinkedIn’s API does not support it either, meaning no scheduling tools can schedule LinkedIn Group posts.
