Sharing your Poshmark Closet

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.

Are You a Poshmark Seller Stylist?

Poshmark Seller Stylist

The new Poshmark Dressing Room feature got me thinking about the features that have been added over the past couple of years. Also, the constant reference to sellers as “Stylists”. Which makes me wonder… are YOU a Poshmark Seller Stylist? Am I?

The answer for me is simple. No, I am not.

I don’t connect with that term.

I will get back to that in a minute.

First, let’s discuss the connect between the Dressing Room and being a Poshmark Seller Stylist.

Never Forget a Poshmark Customer

Never Forget a Poshmark Customer

Often I will run across a Poshmark username and it just looks soooo familiar. I hate when I cannot remember why! Then all these scenarios run through my head…

Did they make a crazy offer before?

Did this person buy a huge bundle?

Wait, they gave me a host pick didn’t they?

 

If you have been selling on Poshmark for a while OR if you have a horrible memory like myself… this is for you!

How to Compare Yourself to Others

How to Compare Yourself to Others

“Are sales slow for you?”

This question is asked approximately every 5 seconds on Poshmark.
Ok, I totally made up that statistic.
BUT, I personally get asked this all the time. Honestly, I find myself asking my friends this question too!
There are times I see people posting photos on Instagram of all of their packages towering in a stack, and I just want to throw my hands up and quit because I haven’t had a sale in two weeks!
Then there are the times I have had to duck my head when asked… knowing I shipped out 15 sales that weekend.
If there is anything I have learned in the past few years of selling and completely overthinking the entire process is that sales are a complete roller coaster, so there is a much bigger question to ask…

Poshing Around the Christmas Tree

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.

The Importance of Descriptions on Poshmark

We talk all the time about the importance of powerful and attention-grabbing covershots. But sometimes we ignore the importance of descriptions on Poshmark!

Unfortunately, accurate and responsible describing is often overlooked by even the most experienced Poshers. Some closets have such stellar reputations that you know what you are getting will be nothing less than perfect… But what about the rest of us?

I don’t know about you, but I am an impulse buyer. If I allow myself too much time to think, I can talk myself out of most purchases.

Poshmark: A Family Affair

 

Please note, all opinions expressed are solely my own. I have no insider knowledge nor claim to…

I am just a seller on Poshmark.

If you watch any large online company you will see it dramatically change as it evolves with its users, whether it is a marketplace or social media. Take Facebook or even eBay… if you were there in the beginning you will recall the huge changes and developments over the years.

Of course our beloved selling platform POSHMARK will evolve and change.

But why does this bother us?

Is there a just cause for concern?

Or are we afraid of competition or having to adjust our carefully plotted strategies?

If you have been offline or on vacation the past week you may have missed the slow trickle of information leaked out from PMHQ. Almost two weeks ago they sent an announcement to Suggested Users that Poshmark will now be allowing men’s and children’s clothing at some point this summer.

Honestly, this is old news…

Remember we discussed this here?

Also, as several poshers have informed me, this was announced to be in the works way back at PoshFest 2015.

Now you can read the terms and conditions inside your app and see it plain as day. It’s coming…

Selfish Sharing

 

If you aren’t interested in reading yet another person’s manifesto about the importance of sharing… I don’t blame you.

From the moment you sign up on Poshmark, the term and “importance” of the action is shoved down your throat.

Sometimes I view sharing like I viewed Lentil Stew as a child…  I know it’s supposed to be good for me but I just can’t stomach it anymore.

Let’s face the facts though, out of all of the currently popular selling platforms, none offer such a straightforward opportunity to get your listings out there. From what I have observed, to get attention on the other popular platforms it is advised to constantly list new items, utilize hashtags, and participate in forums (among others). All are well and good, but Poshmark offers an easier way… to Share.
