  1. Test to check if you are able to post with no images. Normally, this happens when you try to post a post with images. Therefore, if you can remove the images, you should be able to post without any errors to your business page from the mobile app also. Once the post with no images is posted, you can edit the post from mobile and add the images.
  2. Another option is to use a free social media scheduling software like Buffer, Hootsuite etc. Hootsuite has a free plan - and via these scheduling softwares you will be able to post right away to the business page also - or schedule to post on a later date.
