Closet Value and Selling Goals

Closet Value on Poshmark

I am an avid lover of stats, figures, and tracking things related to my Poshmark Closet. It should come as no surprise that I am thrilled about the Closet Value amount added to our Poshmark stats!

If you haven’t noticed this yet, go into “My Posh Stats” and right below your available listings you will see a figure. Before you can really use this amount, you have to determine if it’s accurate. This Closet Value number is the sum of all of your available listings.

How to Full Throttle Your Poshmark Closet

Full Throttle Your Poshmark Closet

We all want more Poshmark sales. Including myself. While I am a self-proclaimed “part-time Posher”, recently I have decided I want more. I am tired of being complacent. For the past two months I have been focusing on what I KNOW I should be doing. As I made my game plan and charted out my course of action, I began to believe that perhaps we tend to overthink our Poshmark strategies. What do I mean by that? I am beginning to think it’s a little more simplistic. Yes, there are tons of features and layers that have been added over the years that can fine tune your sales tactics and get you major results. However, I am now of the belief that the best tactics to full throttle your Poshmark closet are quite basic.

While this post will present strategy we have discussed before, I am going to explain what I feel are the two major factors to getting your closet in a position to make sales and get your closet charged up and into a full throttle mode.

Pour yourself a cup of coffee (I have mine) and let’s chat!

Stop Chasing Other People's Reselling Dreams

Stop Chasing Other People’s Dreams… it’s not a new statement, I didn’t make it up, but it’s real and it sometimes happen without us even realizing it. I wanted to write about it in case you needed to hear it, because I certainly do.

When I find myself burned out and unmotivated I have often times found myself chasing someone else’s dreams and goals.

While I am referring to selling in general, I’m sure you can apply this to other things.

But for the sake of this post, let’s talk about selling on Poshmark (or insert your selling platform of choice)…

Here are a few of my most recent mistakes and what I have learned:

Get Styled on Poshmark

Sometimes a blog post subject will come along that I am excited about writing. This was one of them. Particularly because I got to do things and test things and then report what I learned. So keep that in mind. This is just an opinion piece not necessary factual and your results will vary… so like with all my posts, it’s all my thoughts and opinions that are probably wrong anyway.

This post is about Requesting to be Styled as a Buyer through the Style Match feature.

Slow Sales on Poshmark

Slow Sales on Poshmark

At one point or another we have grabbed our phones and texted our friends “What’s going on with these slow sales on Poshmark?” or have reached out to our social media friends to commiserate.

I know I have!!!

Slow sales on Poshmark make me reflect on my former days as a retail manager. I remember one of the worst job responsibilities being the dreaded nightly recap.

No, not nightcap– that was after you got home.
If you haven’t worked in a sales management position, let me explain… at every company I worked for over the years, there was a required business recap that you had to report to your boss via phone or email. If you had an outstanding day or failed to hit your goal, you had to explain yourself!
