Poshmark Tip of the Week: Followers Myth

I get asked by newbies all the time on if it’s too late to join Poshmark and “make the big bucks” like all the OG people on the app. Like as if how many followers effect how much money you actually make on the app. But contrary to popular belief, despite the fact that the number tracker on our followers is a quite impressive resume bullet point. This number does not in fact guarantee more sales. BUM BUM BUUUUUUUUM!!!

 


Yes I know, it’s been long proven that the activity that you put onto the app will infact give you more sales rather than however many followers you have. My husband used to say all the time when we worked together doing real estate auction events, “it’s the property that draws the crowd, not the company”. Meaning that the actual product brings the shoppers to my closet, the photos, the quality, and the price (at times). Not the fact that I have thousands of followers.

So don’t feel bad baby Posher if you’re just starting out! I have a bunch of newbies that start even in this month, selling a butt load of stuff because they have bright white photos, they’re of good quality, and people want to buy them, and they have only a few followers!

If you’re a newbie and you want people to check out your closet, please put the name of your closet down below! FREE ADVERTISING!! Lol

Poshmark Tip of the Week: The Crazy 8

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?

No actually, just fill it in with a picture of your sales and repeat 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!

I JUST LOVE SURPRISES!!

I don’t know if any of you are following Poshmark on social media but they dropped a HUGE bomb on everyone on Snapchat yesterday, and it’s a pleasent and well received surprise! Can you guess what it is?


What could it be?!


Looks like a camera of some sort, possibly for taking pictures?


Look like I’m on the right track!


A lappy?!? Are my biggest Poshmark dreams coming true????


The beautiful @theamandaweiss giving us the BIG news!

Yup (I hope) you guessed correctly! We will now be able to list your item via desktop. This is a HUGE step for people looking to do some mass listing and it’s going to be mountains easier to get things listed! I’m super stoked, what are your thoughts, are you happy that this is coming? Or are you already used to the mobility of things? Tell me your thoughts, and please share your Poshmark closet so we can shop it!

Poshmark Tip of the Day: Filtration System


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!

Why You Should Be Re-Shopping Poshmark Closets.

I was thinking about this the other day and I was looking back on all my old purchases on the Poshmark App. Suddenly, I had re-kindled the ol flame that I once felt when I first saw some of the items that I purchased.

Typically, people with similar tastes have similar clothing in their closets, which is why Poshmark tries so hard to get you paired up with people with like style preferences. I for one love going back to previous sellers because building that repertoire really helps when shopping. Here are some great reasons to re-shop some of the old closets:

  1. Repeat customers get flexibility in price!
    So that 25% bundle discount may be 35% next go around. I personally am wayyyyyyyy more lenient to people who have purchased with me before than a newer buyer, because I know they will come back and shop again.
  2. You get your own personal shopper.
    For people that repeatedly come back to my closet, I know more about what they want, so when I shop for it, I know I have buyers in mind that would want to purchase the item. Rather than just shopping and *hoping* someone buys it.Screen Shot 2017-03-20 at 12.55.46 PM
  3. You have a seller you can trust.
    If you have a seller that gave you a good experience, then its a sure shot they are going to give you the same experience again. That ‘Thank You’ card, and that tissue paper, or even that extra bubble wrap around those precious Jimmy Choos so they didn’t get scuffed during shipment will happen again. So go with someone who will give you the same experience and go the extra mile.
  4. Lastly, because they’ve got the stuff you want. 
    Someone who has the same style as you, or someone who sells something that you like, is more likely to sell something that you would want again. There are tons of people on Poshmark who sell original pieces that if you truly adore, they will be making more designs that you will want too.

So go out there and shop away! It’s always good to re-kindle the old flame!
