My First Month on Poshmark

Lets talk about my first month on Poshmark. My Poshmark closet is @curvygirltn. You can see it HERE.

If you’re not familiar with Poshmark, it’s an app where you can buy and sell clothing, accessories, and handbags. There are several different types on people on Poshmark. Some are there to buy clothing at a discount, these are the shoppers. Some are there to sell there clothes and buy more clothes. Some are there as full time resellers and Posh is there only job. (Those people are my heroes, teach me your ways.)

I joined Poshmark July 24th to try my hand at selling clothing. I’m an entrepreneur at heart so I love to play around and figure out different ways you can make money.

I learned about Poshmark when I stumbled across an article about a woman who had made $100,000 on Poshmark and I was like wait…what??

You can read that HERE.

So I found some clothes in my closet that I wanted to get rid of and listed those. I sold four items within my first two weeks of being on the app and then of course I was hooked.

At the time of writing this blog post I am entering my fourth week on Poshmark. Aside from those four sales in my first two weeks I have not sold another item.

I have 46 listings in my closet as of now. I am very active on the app and I gain followers, likes, and shares daily so I know I’m moving in the right direction. 

Poshmark is definitely not one of those platforms where you can just set it and forget it. It is a social app driven by people interacting and sharing each others items and their own.

How to get started: 

Download the app – there is a desktop version of Poshmark but I have read that you can’t post items for sale from desktop until you’ve downloaded the app (I have not verified this because I downloaded the app before I realized there was a desktop version)

List your items – make sure you take good pictures when listing new items. If your clothes are wrinkled and your lighting is dark, it reduces the chances that people will buy from you.

I do a lot of flat lays. I have not upgraded to a mannequin just yet.

Dark Denim jeans against a hardwood floor is just so aesthetically pleasing to me! 

Also, make sure when you list your clothing you write good titles and descriptions. Your title at the very least should include Name of items and size. For example, if I’m selling a Banana Republic Sleeveless Top (this was one of my first sales by the way) then my title would be “Banana Republic Sleeveless Top – Size L”

There are a lot of great Youtubers who do Poshmark. That being said you can get on Youtube and search for just about any topic related to Poshmark and find some great videos.

If you want to follow your truly on Youtube my channel is “Curvy Girl TN.” I plan to give Poshmark a year wether good or bad, to experiment and really learn how this platform works. You can subscribe to my channel HERE.

Self Share Daily – While community sharing is an amazing way to spread some Posh Love, be sure you are sharing your closet 2-3 times a day so your items get in front of people.

What were your first few weeks like on Poshmark? Let me know in the comments below. 

Happy Poshing!
