The Importance of Self Shares on Poshmark

If you’re new here you should know something about me…I’m a RESEARCH JUNKIE.

I never start anything new without reading just about anything I can get my hands on about the subject.

So when I joined Poshmark in July of 2018, a posher who commented on my “Meet the Posher” listing to welcome me to the platform, told me I should join some Poshmark related Facebook groups.

As I found a few good ones to participate in, I realized that these groups had post after post on particular Posh related subjects that I knew nothing about. Even better, you can search within the group for different keywords related to a specific topic.

My current favorite group is Poshmark Analytics. This group does a lot of experimenting and reporting back to see what is working for everyone to get sales. The group was created by Lyn McLaughlin Cromar, who is also the creator of the 30 Minute Method. 

It was in this group that I learned the importance of mixing my sold listings in with regular listings, and it was also in this group that I learned the importance of self sharing my closet. I learned that the successful sellers on Poshmark pay attention to not only how much they are sharing daily, but what their “30 Day Self Share” number is as well.

Where can I find my 30 day self share number?

This number can be found in your Posh Stats section. If you are already a Poshmark Ambassador, you may be familiar with checking this number.

The Theory: 

What I took away from this groups conversation about self shares was that keeping your self shares at or around a certain number increases your sales.

What I could gather from the comments on several different posts is that 20,000-45,000 self shares seem to be the sweet spot for making consistent sales. 

Moral of the story for me was the more self shares the better. More self shares = more sales.

Although a quick disclaimer; I did read where someone said once they got past a certain number of self shares they stopped noticing an increase in sales.

However, I don’t think sharing too much is a problem for a lot of us. I think we probably don’t share our own closets enough. Which I completely understand why. It is tedious work. There is nothing sexy about clicking the share button on your own listings 1,000 times in a day.

I should also note that self-sharing a lot is NOT spamming your followers so if you’re new to Posh don’t feel bad when you share your closet 5-10x in a day.

Don’t worry, your followers aren’t seeing you as much as you think they are. Which is why it is recommended you self share multiple times in a day.

How often do you share your closet in a day? Tell me about it in the comments below.
