Let’s get started on how to make the most of your Flick account.

How to create your first post with the AI Assistant ✍️

After you have linked your accounts, it’s time to start creating content! With Flick’s AI Social Media Marketing Assistant, you can create consistent content in seconds.
The best part? You don’t have to be a seasoned social media manager or agency. Heck, you don’t have to know social media that well at first.
The AI Assistant is like having a marketing expert on your team who knows your brand inside out. Give the tool a keyword or an overall theme, and it’ll do all the heavy lifting for you.
But, how can you make it work for you? What’s the best way to create your first piece of content with Flick’s AI Assistant? Let’s walk you through it.

How to use Flick’s AI Assistant 🎉

Let’s start off by saying you want to create a whole new post completely from scratch. You’re not sure exactly what you want your post to be about, so you decide to use the AI Assistant.

Brainstorm ideas 💡

From the left-hand side of the screen, click “Ideas.” You’ll be taken to the Content Lab where everything with our AI is housed.
At the top, click “Brainstorm ideas” to start generating new ideas for your next post. When the pop-up appears, enter a topic or keyword that you want the AI Assistant to brainstorm ideas for.
The tool will then return five different Creative Routes for you to explore. Each idea will give a different general idea based on the topic you searched.

Dig into the Creative Route 🎨

Once you have selected the route(s) you want to take, you’ll be able to get actual post ideas from the AI Assistant.
Select which direction you want to take your post. Remember: the more specific you are about your keyword or topic, the less results you will have. If you don’t see anything that you like, try generating a new idea or topic from the first screen.

Generate Post Ideas 🧠

Now that you have figured out the overall direction you want to take your post, it’s time to select the post ideas you want. You can select all the ideas you see, or if you don’t like any of them, ask the AI Assistant to replace them with fresh new ideas.
When we say you’ll never run out of post ideas, we mean it. You have access to a never-ending supply of post ideas in one place.

Create your caption ✨

Now for the fun part, if you ask me. Creating the caption! Captions are incredibly important when it comes to social media. They can make or break if your post gets a certain amount of engagement or reach.

So having an engaging caption that makes people want to like, comment, share, etc., is fundamental to your social media strategy.
Once you have selected the post ideas you want, it’s time to let the AI Assistant create the best caption for you and your social media accounts.
  • Select a caption template as this will help the AI Assistant create even more engaging content, and help it decide how best to write the post for you.
  • Determine the length of your post, what kind of content you want in it, the tone of voice you’d like, and which point of view you want the tool to write in.
  • Want to make extra sure the tool writes completely in your voice? Add in your Brand Info (general information about your brand and business) and the AI Assistant will write captions in your style to your exact audience every single time.
  • Select “Generate Caption” and the perfect caption for your content will be written in seconds. If the caption isn’t quite what you want, you can always ask the tool to re-write, adjust the tone, edit length, and more.
The hassle of coming up with fresh new content ideas every single month is no longer a worry.

Add your hashtags #️⃣

Yes, hashtags are still a thing and still work! If you’re not using them, well, you should be. And Flick makes it so easy for you to add hashtags with our AI Assistant.

After your caption has been created, click on “hashtags” underneath the caption. A pop-up will appear with hashtags that are completely tailored to your caption. No more hunting around for the best hashtags that make sense with your content.
Our AI Assistant is saving you both time and energy that can be spent working on other items to grow your business. Let us work on growing your social media accounts.

Generating an AI image or Stock Image 🖼️

Now that you have everything else set up for your perfect post, it’s time to think about the image. Do you have one? Or do you not have the time or resources to spend on creating the perfect image or video?

We get it! That’s why you can now get AI-generated images and access to over 100,000 high-quality stock images inside Flick’s AI Assistant.
Now that you have the perfect caption, click the “Continue” button at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to our Scheduler where you can now schedule all of your posts in advance! At the top of the screen (above your caption), click “Suggested.” From here, you’ll immediately get a list of suggested stock images you can add to your content.
Don’t want one of the stock images? Why not try an AI-generated image? Click “Generate Image” and an AI-generated image will appear that is tailor-made for your caption.

Scheduling your social media content 📆

You’ve got the perfect caption, the perfect hashtags, the perfect image. Now it’s time to get that baby scheduled!

Why schedule your social media content?

Planning out content in advance can help you really nail down your marketing strategy. You’ll be able to see what content you need to create, what areas are missing from your marketing, and what your feed will look like to your audience.
Plus, when you plan ahead you can make sure that you’re creating content you know your audience loves.
By scheduling your content, you’ll remain consistent with posting (which is huge when it comes to growth on social media!), be able to curate content for your audience and make sure that the content is posted at the best time for your audience.

How to schedule inside Flick

With your engaging caption, hashtags, and image, it’s time to schedule. But how do you do that? Let’s walk you through it.

After you have generated your image, make sure everything else looks good with your post. Add a location, tag anyone in the image, or add a first comment.
Flick’s tip: We recommend looking at your Feed Preview to see what your new post will look like against the rest of your content!
Select the date you’d like your content posted and from there, you can have the post auto-posted (published automatically for you) or manually posted (you’ll receive a notification at the time it should be posted).
When you select auto or manual, you’ll have to choose a time you’d like the content published. Here, you’ll see three times that are the Best Time to Post your content. This is when, according to your analytics, your audience is most online and active.
We highly recommend choosing a time when your audience is online and engaged.
Finally, once you have all the information input, click “Schedule.”
By scheduling your content in advance, you’re making sure you’re staying consistent which your audience will reward you for. Stay on top of your social media and never miss a single post by scheduling ahead.

Analyzing your insights

Finally, one of the key pieces you need to be paying attention to during your 7-day trial is your insights.
Most social media platforms have an insights tab you can dig into, however, at Flick, we dig even further into analytics on your social media accounts. Why should you be paying attention to these stats for your content? Because it helps you figure out what content to make for your audience.
When you log in to Flick, click “Overview” under analytics. In this section, you’ll get a general overview (duh) of the analytics on your Instagram account. You’ll be able to access things like:
  • Followers
  • Audience activity
  • Reach and Impressions
  • Profile activity
  • Website clicks
  • Profile visits
  • Hashtag analytics
Dig deeper into what content your audience is engaging with the most — and once you have discovered that content, you can have our AI Assistant generate a similar post for you. Instantly.
At Flick, we’re working incredibly hard to be the social media marketing tool you want (and deserve!). We want to help you streamline your workflow and make creating content easier on you—not harder.
Be sure to make the most out of your free trial to see why we think it’s the #1 tool you need. If you haven’t already, start your free trial today.
