You will no longer encounter issue with Flick stopping you from scheduling carousels due to dimension restrictions. Instead, you will be able to handle these in Instagram at the time of posting.
Scheduling beta testers are now able to add selected hashtags when scheduling a post in a single click.
We've completely re-designed the blog home page to make it easier to find the content and resources you want.
In addition users are now able to:
- Sign up to our bi-weekly newsletter
- Filter blog posts by category
- Receive suggested blog posts based on reading history
You can now plan your feed visually by previewing what your feed will look like after posting your content. Our drag and drag interface makes it easy for you to play around with the layout of your feed that works best. Once happy, you can save your changes and Flick will automatically schedule your content for you.
Note: Currently users are not able to schedule new posts from this view or create placeholders for reels.
Today, we launched Flick's Scheduler to our first set of beta testers. In the initial version of the beta users are able to:
- Use our drag and drop calendar to schedule Instagram posts
- Schedule single and carousel posts
- Add first comment and tag users on single posts
- Edit, crop and trim media from within Flick
- Access their scheduled media from the mobile app
Users can now benchmark their account's performance against the performance of similar accounts across 16 different metrics including "Engagement rate", "Rank Ratio", "Click through Rate" and many more.
Users can now expand metrics within analytics to get a more detailed view of a particular metric. In ht expanded view users can chose to compare their account's performance to a previous time period or accounts of similar sizes.
Understanding where you should focus your attention to get the results you want can often be confusing. While there are blog posts online and Instagram experts who can provide advice, this information can be quite noisy and can quickly become outdated. We wanted to create a solution for this.
Open Benchmarks is a free resource you can use to uncover areas you’re succeeding in and other places that could use some extra love and attention to help your account grow. If you’re a content creator, social media manager, small business, or just curious about your Instagram stats, being able to access reliable, up-to-date information that will help your account grow and succeed is a must.
The solo and growth plans can track 10 and 30 posts a month respectively. By tracking a post, Flick would monitor the performance of every hashtag on that post and provide users with insights on their performance.
Before today, posts with no hashtags would also count towards the plans's limits. However this is now no longer the case.
