This was originally published on August 7, 2015… Recently it seems to be a huge topic on Poshmark. I feel like there have been no major changes in the way share have been displayed… what do YOU think?
We all want to be noticed.
All of us, from time to time, have that one listing that we REALLY want people to see. Sometimes it’s that hot new dress, a Party Co-Hosting Alert, or a Major Sale Announcement. For me, I get really excited when I post a new blog entry and want to share it with everyone.
For a long time now, it has been widely believed that if you share the same listing over and over, you will “flood” your followers news feed and they will have to take notice. It shouldn’t annoy anyone because most Poshers follow thousands of people and may only see your ten rapid fire shares once or twice. Have you heard of this theory?
I was able to test this the other morning…
I typically am up and Poshing around 5am in the mornings… yes, there are a few of us! (Don’t assume that it’s a waste because I have made a few sales during these early bird hours!)
To test this theory, I started to share this listing multiple times. I was one of only a handful of people I follow that was actively sharing so I could really see ALL the activity on my news feed.
This is what happened the first time I shared it:
I immediately shared again:
The 4th share determined the pattern. If you share the same listing multiple times- you will not “flood” a feed, but rather continually move the listing to the front and center of your followers feed. It will disappear and reappear with each new share. Yes, it may make it more noticeable especially if they are just logging on or refreshing their feed because it moved to the top.
This is really changing how I share now! I would normally “rapid fire” share the sale/party/other announcement listings for my PFF’s. Now I will still be sharing multiple times but throughout the day with time in between.
The only way that I can conclude to successfully flood a feed would be to have several Poshers sharing the same listing at the same time. If someone follows all (or some) of the sharers- they would see the listing multiple times.
Again, I feel that I should add the disclaimer that these Poshmark advice posts are just my personal opinions and have no real facts or insider infomation backing them up. These are my observations and you can do with them whatever you would like 🙂
