One of the most basic of all functions and often the most misunderstood are Likes on Poshmark.
New sellers may be baffled: Are they about to purchase? Should I thank them? Should I wait around to see if they have questions?
Before you can decide what to do when you receive a like on your listing, first we have to discuss the basic functionality and then possible reasons someone may be liking an item.
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.
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!
It’s Poshmark’s GOLDEN Birthday!
It has been 6 years since Poshmark first began… time flies, huh?
I was not among the first.
Back in 2011, I was using my Blackberry Pearl… then my Blackberry Curve, and then my amazing Blackberry Bold!
I didn’t get an iPhone until 2014. Heck, I’m still using my 5s.
This is how my Poshmark story started…
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:
I have a few thoughts on the Stylist Match Feature on Poshmark. In case you haven’t noticed, Poshmark is making a huge deal about the launch. Why? Probably because it’s a huge deal.
There has to be something behind it all, right?
But as with every new feature, there will be lovers and haters. Let’s look back:
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.
If you have experienced the new Style Me feature on Poshmark, you probably have a pretty strong opinion one way or another… Especially with the recent upgrades to the process.
So, You Want Me to Style You?
Poshmark has long been promising an update to the Suggested User Program. Today Suggested Users (and possibly others) received an email from the Poshmark CEO informing us that they that they are rolling out the new Poshmark Ambassador Program. I am updating this post as we find out more!
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!
