This past week, November 12th-November 18th, started off slow. I went four days without a sale. However, Friday before 9:00 a.m. I sold two items back to back and then Saturday I sold my very first five piece bundle!!
I hesitate to make any predictions based off of these results however. I am learning about the only solid prediction I have about Poshmark is that just when you think something is working in your favor and caused you to make a sale, when you replicate those exact same actions they don’t necessarily result in a sale a second time. Womp womp.
I will however, draw the conclusion that the weekends are prime selling time. I may be spinning my wheels during the week spending so much time self sharing my closet when people are more likely to buy either on the weekend or around payday.
What sold in the bundle? Two Michael Kors shirts that I have had listed literally since I started on Poshmark in August. A sleeveless shirt from Maurices and a sleeveless shirt from Kohl’s. The brand was Roz & Ali.
The other items I sold over the weekend were a pair of Gap Jeans size 18 and a “I’m Not Bossy I’m the Boss 2X” sweatshirt.
My closet does focus on sizes large and up. Several times I have thought about branching into smaller sizes, but from my online marketing days I know it is better to have a niche market to begin with.
The specialist always makes more than the general practitioner. One of my favorite online marketing experts loves to say “If you’re talking to everybody, you’re talking to nobody.”
So far this month I have listed 40 new items in my closet. My goal is to list 50 per month. That feels like an attainable/sustainable goal for me, especially since I’m working full time.
My goal for this month was also to get to 21,000 followers and I have crushed that goal. I changed up my following strategy and it really helped.
As a Poshmark Ambassador, I automatically get several followers a day who are brand new to the app. I have noticed, that most new people automatically start out following 142 people.
I go find new people who only have one listing but are following 142 people, and then I follow all 142 of those people. Why? Because I have noticed that these tend to be active users who are more likely to follow back.
I know this strategy is working for me, because I started the month at 19,500 followers. The month is not over yet, but I am at 21,547 followers.
My favorite thing about Poshmark is setting these goals for myself every month and then working my but off to accomplish them.
It’s not easy, but despite the madness I do find it kind of fun.
