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 5:30 am on the East Coast. I am awake and sharing my Poshmark Closet. Some might say sharing your Poshmark closet this early is a waste of time because the majority of Poshmark users are not awake let alone shopping their feed (it’s 2:30 on the West Coast!!). But this is all part of my strategy which I will explain in just a few. This also ties in to one of the MOST asked questions…
“What is more important: sharing your Poshmark closet or sharing others?”
– Everyone on Poshmark
If you have never been asked this before, you probably have been the one asking. I have been on both sides.
I would love to do research and figure out which gives you the best ROI (return on investment) but there are simply too many factors involved. Factors such as:
- Amount of followers of person sharing
- Time of day/ Time zone
- Appeal of listings (photo quality, item desirability)
… and about a million other little factors, including the elusive algorithm.
I firmly believe that sharing your Poshmark closet and sharing others both hold significant importance.

I have dedicated the majority of this blog to the sellers and giving opinions on a variety of subjects pertaining to such. Now that I do not have any listings in my closet- I am solely BUYING!
With that said, I figured it’s about time we discuss the magic of BUYING on Poshmark!
It’s all too easy to get overwhelmed by all the choices OR unfortunately make a purchasing mistake and have an awful experience. This can happen on any online selling/shopping platform. However, from my experience, Poshmark is my absolute favorite online place to shop and I generally have loved all my purchases.
In this post I am going to tell you how to recognize a fabulous closet, how to get the best deal, and how to ensure you love your item.
It’s that time of year again! I absolutely love the holiday season. I love the weather getting colder, the excitement in the air, and all of the festivities! We all know that with the holidays comes stress too… long lines, traffic, and a few Scrooges.
But what does Christmas, Hanukkah, and the whole holiday season mean for your Poshmark closet?
I gave tons of tips last year in the post How to Posh During the Holidays without Losing Your Mind
Everything from strategy to winterizing your packaging…
I was optimistic last year, but this year I think that sales will be even better!
Why do I feel this way?
This year is all about the SHOPPERS.

Let’s be honest.
How many of you have had a slow month selling?
I am not afraid to say it…
I haven’t had a sale in over a week.
Before you roll your eyes, NO, this isn’t the first time I have had a lull in sales.
You can have the cutest listings, with the most popular name brands, mark it all down to $5.00 and STILL not have a sales… it happens.
But this month of June has been pretty tough… I am not the only one who has been experiencing this based on how many comments, DMs, and texts I have received asking for advice!
However, I do need to go ahead and admit that Poshing has not been my #1 priority. It can’t always be… right?
I had a truly eye-opening conversation concerning Offers.
But let me start at the beginning…
My best friend is obsessed with shoes. She does not just claim to love shoes, it is a lifestyle for her.
She has a room in her home dedicated to her shoes. She has hundreds of pairs.
My best friend is also on Poshmark. She doesn’t sell, she has yet to purchase, but she does browse.
She browses the shoes, of course.
Occasionally she will ask my opinion on a pair she finds. I insist that she let’s me check out the listing to determine if it looks like a reputable seller and closet.
A week or so ago, we were sitting at Starbucks enjoying our grande flat white lattes when she showed me a pair of shoes she liked. They were really nice Vera Wang flats, not my style, but TOTALLY her.
This is how our conversation went…
It seems rare these days to make a single item sale on Poshmark that doesn’t start with an offer being made.
However, there are always those hot items that the buyer knows will go fast or they recognize that the price is a already a steal and so they buy it right away. We daydream about this happening!
Before you decide to close this post because you don’t want to hear (yet again) what constitutes a reasonable offer and BLAH BLAH BLAH… keep reading, you may be reasonably surprised.
I am going to point out a risk factor for the SELLER and tell you why you, the buyer, should make an offer. At the end, get your tissues ready because I am going to close with a very sad story.
