(This post was updated on April 4, 2016, to reflect the latest New People feature of “Fresh Closets” and “Just Joined”)
It’s rare that I get so excited about a new feature.
The last time I did, was when Poshmark rolled out the “Make an Offer” button.
Now there is a new one that I am so excited about…
It’s the Find New People Feature!
New Closets??? Really??? I know it doesn’t sound as exciting as the upcoming “bundle” feature (oops, that may have been top secret Suggested User info) but let me tell you why you should be excited about this one too.
Here is how to find the New People feature:
Go to your closet info and you will see near the top “Find People”
Once you are there you will have a few choices… you will see all the “Suggested Users” for that hour and also a section called “New People”… click on that choice.
Now, here is where the magic is… You have access to all the newest Poshers! You can choose “Just Joined” where you can find the newest people to join the Poshmark community… OR, “Fresh Closets.” I like to go to “Fresh Closets” because these are the Poshers who have just listed items and you can start sharing with them! Either way- either list introduces you to brand new potential customers! (in case you didn’t know- when a Posher first signs up- they get a shipping promo on their first purchase!!)
Why do you want to connect with New Poshers?
Think about it… remember when you first started and you spent HOURS on the app figuring things out? Wouldn’t you have liked to have a mentor?
1. You can be a mentor!
There is a new “badge”
If you are one of the first 50 people to share a listing from a new closet then it is counted as a “New Closet Shared.” I am not sure of the magic number but it’s between 18-24 new closets and then you will get the “Posh Mentor” Badge! (Also, there is a “Top 10% Sharer” as you can see as well). This can be found under your “My Closet Stats.”
I personally love to help out new Poshers so I have been using this to greet and welcome newbies.
2. You have access to buyers!
Yep, these newbies are probably big-time purchasers OR are looking to make their first purchase. If they are following your closet along with maybe a hundred others they are more likely to see your shares than another follower who is following 10,000+.
See where I am going with this? Less competition!
These are the closets that you want following you!
I spent a couple of hours last night going through the list finding INSANELY beautiful closets! I can’t believe how some of these closets are starting out- mine was a mess for the first few months (and sometimes still is).
I followed a ton of them and received a lot of follow backs.
3. Gain new followers
These closets are very aware of who shares them and who follows them (look at their stats, most have only a handful of followers). I remember in my first few weeks just being obsessed with every new share and follower- there is a very high potential that they will follow back.
Well, I guess I just gave away my latest strategy!
I know this post was short but I couldn’t wait to share this info! Good Luck my friends!
