3. Simply click search. VOILA! That was pretty simple right?

πŸ” Β How to use the expand feature to dive deeper into a niche:

So you've just made your initial search and Flick's outputted a simple looking graph for you. Great! What's next? Well, the team at Flick realised that one of the biggest issues with hashtag research is the fact you always end up stumbling on the same hashtags. So, we added our expand hashtags feature!

It allows you to choose one of the current hashtags displayed on the graph and find the hashtags relevant to it and the initial hashtag you searched for. Β Hence, each time you do this you dive deeper into your niche. So how do you do it?

Step 1: Right click on the hashtag you want to expand and press this button

Step 2: You will be bought back to the search bar:

Step 3: Click on search... VOILA!

The yellow cluster represents the hashtags found after your expansion. You can repeat this process over and over with each new cluster having a different colour so you can easily differentiate them (as shown below).

β†©οΈŽ Exporting hashtags with Flick:

So you've found your dream hashtags, now you want to export them so you can use them on your next post. How do we do that?

Step 1: Click on the hashtags you want to export

A circle will appear around the Hashtags you have selected.

Pro tip: You can select many hashtags at once by clicking CMD+SHIFT key and dragging your mouse over the hashtags you want to select.

Step 2: Click on the BIG export button

Pro tip: The number indicates how many hashtags you currently have selected

Step 3: Click on "Copy Hashtags" and VOILA

Pro tip: You now have the option to send your hashtags directly to your Facebook messenger, this allows you to easily access your chosen hashtags from your phone.

You can now paste those hashtags anywhere you want including on your Instagram caption or comment!
