First off, I want to start off by apologizing for being so MIA as of late. Those of you who follow me on Snapchat or Instagram know that I’ve been 1) moving & 2) Traveling (on vaycay and for work). So the past two months have been crazy busy for me so I haven’t had a moment to sit down and just write. But during that time I’ve come up with some crazy good material that I hope you’ll enjoy in the coming weeks!
So let’s start off with THE CRAZY 8!!!
It’s not been long since Poshmark opened up their listings to have 8 photos on the app. But have you thought of using all the spaces? I vaguely remember back in 2014 when Poshfest had a panel of Poshmark heads and one of them had brought up the idea of having 8 photos and how that could bring up the value of your listing.
So I recommend, if I were you, get as many photos as you can into the listing. It may get your listing shown more, to more eyes, and have a better chance of selling.
But what if it’s an old listing and you put the item away, do I need to take more pics of it?
Yes it’s a bit more work, but it can only help you sell more! Feel free to like and comment on this post. Have you tried this method? I’d like to hear your honest opinion. Please put your closet name below so we can all check out and peruse each other’s closets!
Trust me ladies when it comes to shopping on Poshmark, I’d like to say I’m a PRO. But you can shop like a pro too by utilizing the FILTRATION system in each person’s closet. Search brands, sizes or even stuff they just dropped. Instead of buying 4 different items of the same brand from different sellers, save shipping by just shopping one closet!
TAX SEASON IS COMING UP!!! I know what you’re thinking, what do I do if I made money one Poshmark? Do I need to file taxes? How do I do it? WHAT DO I DO?!?!?! Short of having a panic attack, we are here to help and guide you to some basic answers to get you on your way to staying in the clear when it comes down to tax time! Just as a note, this blog post is just BASIC info. This isn’t going to go into too much depth, because everyone’s situation is different, and unique. But if you’re looking to get more specific questions answered, there will be info at the end of this post!
Lucky you! Not many people know these but after trying some things out I’ve managed to find the *BEST* ways to get your items seen and sold on Poshmark. I’d like to share with you all some of my sharing strategies and skills that can get your stuff seen and sold! I mean, I don’t expect you’re here for shits and giggles, you wanna know how to sell more and make billionz! If you don’t know what sharing is, please read this first before and then catch on up here.
Well I can’t get you to billionaire status, but I can get you on your way. So read on!
Well first and foremost, let’s go with my daily routine:
Where and what I share is also very very important. As much as I love just sharing my one item I want to sell over and over again, be careful when doing that because the system may mark it as spam and it lowers the value of the listing. So take a peek into what I do to help you increase your sales and your value as a member of the Poshmark community!
I share my own closet.
This is one of the mostly asked questions that I get. How do you share your own closet? Easily, I share each item I have in my closet to ‘my followers’. It’s a lot, but you gotta do it! Sharing your own closet is another sense of marketing for yourself. It’s best to do so in the morning but you shouldn’t do it more than just a few times a day.
I share my feed
Sharing your feed exposes you to new and sometimes fresh items from your followers and from people you follow. Plus you have a chance to look at items that you probably wouldn’t see in your network of friends.
I share past parties
I am not part of a share group or share parties.
This is one of the best things that I do. I share from some of the old parties. Why? Because here is a huge network of people that aren’t necessarily in my network… that ultimately I want part of my network. Think about it, everyone shares to parties, or shares some of their followers, followers, followers stuff to parties. I WANT to connect with them. I want them to look into my closet and check things out if they’ve never seen my stuff. Branch out, and sharing from parties is one of the best ways to reach people you haven’t met before!

The reason I am not part of share groups is that having a share group doesn’t give you as much reach as you need to get your closet out there. Imagine if you were in a rock band, and you wanted to make it big, and you sang to an audience of the same 50 people…everyday. You’re not gonna get very far. So diversify your efforts and try breaking out of the bubble of share groups. On the other hand, share groups are a fun way to get to know other people, but to me there’s just a lot of pressure to keep up with the demands sometimes and I prefer a more casual experience.
Share likeminded brands
Ok so this one is a 2 part. If I can remember to do this, I share my items that are of a certain brand so that they appear at the top of my closet. Then I go into that brand and start sharing some of the items at the top. When items appear at the top, it means that the user is active and on the app, hence why they are sharing their own item. In turn if you share their items, they share your items. Typically if they like that brand, they are more inclined to purchase items of that brand, so when they are looking at the items to share there’s more of a *possibility* of them purchasing.
So there you have it MY sharing techniques. Try these out if you wanna, it beats just sharing your feed or just the same people in your follow groups.
Happy to help, please make sure that you put your closet below in the comments so that I can check out your closet! Like and Share if you can!
