In short...practice. Back Clicks are mainly muscle memory. You get used to what it feels like when it is right and you do that repeatedly. Like any other click, you are only going to land a back click if your feet are turned out and pointed. Aim to have your feet meet or “click” under your bum, as one is going down and the other is coming up. Most people aim to click near the ground, which I think makes it harder and of course doesn’t look as nice. Start with chairs to figure out what feels right for you, then drill back clicks until you get 20 in a row without missing one. Then aim for 50, etc. Eventually it will become second nature.
Now excuse me while I go off to to drill my back clicks. I haven’t been following my own advice lately and my back clicks are so sloppy in my jig. It is laziness on my part.

I found mine were more consistent if I remembered to hold the first foot steady and swing the other to meet it. (vs swinging both and hoping they found each other)

so it was a steady target vs a swinging target, if that makes sense?

As annoying as it sounds, Califeisgirl is right. It took me sooo many times of just practicing them over and over and over and OVER, but now I'm super consistent with them. Good luck!!
