What is Flick now?
Okay, first things first, what is Flick? Flick is an Instagram Marketing Platform that helps marketers, businesses, and creators save time and improve their results on Instagram.
Currently, our suite of tools focuses on three key areas:
- Hashtags (Find, Manage, Search, Analytics)
- Analytics (Account, Content, Audience, Profile)
- Scheduling (Automatic posting, Planning, Feed Preview)
When you’re talking with your audience about Flick, the best thing to remember is that they should use all three areas of the platform! Why? Because it’ll help you increase your earnings (which is what you really want, right?). Typically, those who use ALL areas of our product continue to use our product longer. That means more revenue for you without putting in any additional work. Win-win.
What new features are coming to Flick?
We’re excited to say that Instagram isn’t going to be the only platform you’ll be able to gather data on inside Flick! We’re currently working on introducing new social options to Flick. This means in the very near future, you’ll be able to schedule content on Facebook, TikTok, LinkedIn and more. It’s good to keep your audience in the loop with updates, as with every new feature comes more value for them.

At the top of the dashboard, you can swap between the different analytics available within First Promoter. For example. A breakdown of your daily, weekly, or monthly performance.
Ways to promote Flick
What better way to get your followers to sign up for a product you’re promoting than by showing them how to USE the product? Tutorials are a great way for you to show off the benefits of Flick and why you think your followers should use it. Once they see how easy it is to use and the incredible benefits they get from it, they’ll likely sign up for it.
One of the best ways to promote Flick? By doing a product review! By reviewing Flick, you can detail exactly how the product can benefit your audience to help peak their interest!
Mention within related content
Posting something online that ties in well to the affiliate product? It’s the perfect time to mention the affiliate without seeming like a blatant #AD on your page.
This is definitely a “duh” one, but promote on your social media channels! Your followers trust you for a reason, so let them know the reasons why they need the affiliate product over on all of your social media pages.
Have a podcast? Why not name-drop the affiliate product you want to promote? It’s quick, easy, and could be an effective way to get your followers to sign up.
Adding to your ‘Recommended Resource’ lists
If you have a resources page that you direct people to, add your affiliate product links to that resource page! It’s a super simple way for people to see your favorite items and try them out for themselves.
We love email marketing and if you have a dedicated list of subscribers, dropping your affiliate links into your emails can be an effective way for your followers to sign up and try the product.

Referring your Clients
If you have a list of clients you work with and know that a certain tool will help make their working lives much easier, why not refer them?

How do Commissions Work?
Once someone who’s visited Flick via your link becomes a paying customer, you will be owed 20% of the revenue generated. Depending on the plan chosen, this will renew either monthly or yearly, and you will continue to earn 20% of the revenue generated.
How do Payouts work?
FirstPromoter takes the same popular approach as affiliate networks, resellers and payment providers take with their payouts – generating a payout for a specific interval and making the actual payment later. Flick has a net 30-day payment term. This window of 30 days is used to cover the scenario where affiliated customers initiate a chargeback or refund. On the first day of each month, all unpaid approved commissions generated are summed up and added as a “Pending payout.” For example, if there’s no minimum payout set, all pending payouts created on the 1st of February represent all approved and unpaid commissions generated during January. If there is a minimum payout on the campaign, the payout is generated only if the unpaid balance exceeds the minimum payout on the 1st of the month.
