  1. Hashtags

Hashtags

We started as a hashtag company and will continue helping you with your hashtag strategy. Hashtags have been around for so long and will continue to stick around. They are the best way for Instagram to identify what your content is about and help you reach new followers you would never have reached before.
At Flick, we break down hashtags in a variety of ways. You can easily search for hashtags by looking for a specific word and we will pull up hashtags that fit perfectly inside of that niche.
You can scroll our group view where you’ll see which hashtags are low, medium, or high competition. But if you actually want to dig into each of the hashtags and find the ones that are actually pitch-perfect for you, you’ll want to switch to our table view.
From the table view, you’ll see quite a lot of different factors that go into hashtags like:
  • Competition score: The estimated level of difficulty to rank in the ‘top posts’ feed of the hashtag. This score compares the hashtag’s difficulty to all other hashtags in our database, as well as the success Flick users have had using hashtags with similar features.
  • Potential reach: The estimated audience size you’re likely to reach if you were to rank highly on the hashtag. This score compares the hashtag’s potential audience size to all other hashtags in our database, as well as the experience Flick users have had using hashtags with similar features.
  • DAPC: aka the Daily average post count, the average number of posts made daily using the hashtag.
  • Average Likes: Average number of likes that posts that rank on the hashtag get.
  • Total Posts: The number of posts has been made with the hashtag all time.
  • Average Comments: Average number of comments which posts that rank on the hashtag get.
You can also refine your search results and turn on “smart filters.” The smart filters will narrow down your hashtag results to hashtags that you are more likely to rank on. You’ll only see hashtags that fit well into your account based on the number of followers you have, the engagement you get, and more.
Figuring out your hashtag strategy can be pretty essential when it comes to growing your Instagram account and Flick will break down everything you need to know when it comes to each and every one of the hashtags you’re using.

Analytics

Flick’s Instagram analytics are the analytics you wish Instagram had in their own app. We break down everything you want to know when it comes to your Instagram’s performance.
In our analytics, you can find all the typical information you look for in analytics like Follow change, reach, website clicks, and impressions.
However, you’ll get an in-depth view and details on how well each of your posts did. You’ll discover how many hashtags ranked, your average engagement rate, and the total number of engagements during a certain time frame.
Other areas of data you’ll receive with your analytics are a complete breakdown of the time and day that your followers are most active, your conversion rate, and a detailed report on how well your hashtags performed.
And the best part? You can completely customize the date range for your analytics, unlike in Instagram where you’re limited to the number of days you can view in a time period. 🎉

Open/Internal Benchmarks

Whether you’re a content creator, social media manager, or a small business, it’s important you have access to reliable information that can help you succeed on Instagram. That’s the reason we’ve created a free Instagram benchmarks resource!
The open benchmarks tool will help give you insight into how other accounts are performing, areas where your account is doing well, and areas that could use a little more attention.
With our internal benchmarks, you can compare your current account performance to other similar accounts. This way, you can see exactly how your account is performing against accounts that have a similar follower size to you.
To do this, head to your analytics in your Flick account, and at the top where it says “compared to,” click the drop-down and select “similar accounts.” From here, you’ll see how your account stacks up against other accounts that have a similar follower number as you.
Internal benchmarks are great for getting a sense of whether your account is headed in the right direction or not. If it is, that’s your sign to keep doing what you’re doing. If it isn’t, it may be time to dive into the data to locate the problem.

Scheduler

Over the past few months, we have been working on creating the most reliable scheduler on the market. We have been working closely with our users to make sure that everything that you’ve been wanting for a Scheduler is everything you need and more.
We know that you need a Scheduler that does all the jobs you want it to do:
  • Automatically post
  • Schedule from your app
  • Hashtags conveniently located in one spot
  • Reels integration in the feed
  • Tagging abilities for accounts and products
While we’re still in the process of making the best platform out there (!!), we have first focused on creating the best all-in-one Instagram marketing platform for you before we release new features for you to look forward to!
On our Instagram Scheduler, you will have the ability to:
  • Create drafts with or without a time assigned to them
  • Integrate your hashtag collections which will give you a seamless workflow instead of going back and forth trying to copy over your hashtags.
  • Store media within our platform
  • Each brand has its own completely separate media library, which avoids issues like having to tag content for a particular account when managing multiple accounts.
  • Tag different images with custom labels for further workflow optimizations
  • Preview your feed and seamlessly drag and drop
  • Reels integration in the feed preview (coming soon!)
  • Drag and drop monthly and weekly calendar
  • See your best times to post for each and every day
  • Schedule from your mobile app (!!)
We hope to continue to improve and make this scheduler one you not only want to use but can’t get the quality and capabilities of anywhere else.
And the best part? It’s already included in your Flick plan … at no extra cost.
