There are four days left in August and this will be my first full month on Poshmark. I joined July 24th. After four sales in my first two weeks it was straight up radio silence for 20 days!!! I swear I almost threw in the towel.
After much trial and error and perseverance I ended up selling 6 items after that twenty day drought. Now that there is money in my bank account I’m glad I didn’t quit despite the difficulty.
Here are a few of the things that sold in my closet on Poshmark this month:
Over the past month I have documented EVERYTHING in spreadsheets and Evernote to see what seems to be working and what doesn’t seem to be working.
Here are my insights from the month of August. This is my own personal experience and I realize different things work for different people.
Insight #1: More activity (listing, self sharing, community sharing, and following new Poshers) equals more likes, and more likes equals more offers to likers, and more offers to likers equals more sales.
There are some Poshers who think you should ONLY share your own closet. There are others who argue that it doesn’t really matter how many followers you have. There are others who believe community sharing 1000 items a day is the way to go.
In my experience its not one thing that helps you make sales on Poshmark, its a combination of ALL the things. Listing new items, self sharing your closet, following new Poshers, participating in parties, and community sharing.
Insight #2: Majority of the top sellers are averaging 20,000 self shares in a 30 day period. Right now I am sharing my closet four times a day. I have 45 active listings.
Insight #3: The 30 Minute Method is BAE! If you don’t know what the 30 Minute Method is you can find it HERE. It was created by Lyn Cromar who has an amazing Facebook group called Poshmark Analytics. You have to join Poshmark Analytics Sandbox group first, and then you graduate to the larger Poshmark Analytics group once you’ve completed the Sandbox requirements.
When I made my first four sales I had been doing the 30 Minute Method and then for some reason I got distracted and stopped. After 20 days of no sales I went back to doing it and then BAM sales! So I do believe it works, at least it works for me.
Insight #4: The evenings seem to be the time that people are most active on the app. I make it a goal to do at least an hour of Poshing each evening. I do the 30 Minute Method and attend parties in the evenings.
Insight #5: Photos have to be square when uploading them to Poshmark. This can be a pain in the rear end. However, if you have iPhone, when you take your photos just swap your camera over from the photo tab to square. Easy peesy.
What are some of your Poshmark insights? What things have you found allows you to have success on the app?
