When LinkedIn updated their API in March of 2019, it meant that IFTTT no longer worked with LinkedIn. Here is a look at an IFTTT alternative for automating LinkedIn posts.
OneUp is an IFTTT alternative for LinkedIn that allows you to automate posts on LinkedIn.
This will connect your personal LinkedIn profile, plus any LinkedIn Pages that you are an admin on.
You can also add your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Google My Business accounts if you wish.
After click schedule a post to create a post. You can choose to have the post go to just LinkedIn, or add any of your other accounts.
You can add text, links, and images to your posts.
Then choose to your LinkedIn update posted once, or have it automatically repeat at set intervals.
You can then pick to post it now, or schedule it for a future time.
OneUp is an alternative to IFTTT for posting to LinkedIn. Another way to automate your LinkedIn posts is to connect an RSS feed to your LinkedIn account by using OneUp.
Under Schedule Post, click Auto-post from RSS feeds.
On the RSS feed page, click Add new feed.
Then add the RSS feed URL that you want to automatically post to your LinkedIn page. You can add your own blog, podcast, or YouTube channel, or add feeds from others that you like.
You can choose to have the RSS feed post just LinkedIn, or have it also post to your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Google My Business.
Then choose the minimum interval between each post from that RSS feed.
Once added it, OneUp will schedule the 10 most recent posts from that RSS feed at the minimum interval you set. Moving forward, it will continuously check that RSS feed and automatically post to LinkedIn whenever there is something new.

This is *not* an IFTTT alternative. There’s nothing reactionary about this. IFTTT literally means “If this, then that”, meaning that an action will trigger a response. For example, “If I post to LinkedIn, then post to my blog” or something. All OneUp seems to do is schedule and automate posting, which Buffer handles much better.
Hey Mike, you are right that you cannot do something like “If I post to LinkedIn, then post to my blog” with OneUp.
However, using RSS feeds mentioned in the second half of the article, you can do something like “When I post to my Facebook page, also have that post automatically posted on LinkedIn”.
Hope that makes sense 🙂
One of the absolute best features of one up is the ability to schedule recurring posts. This was amazing to schedule my baseline business posts for Groups and more.
