The Downside: It Takes Work!
You will have to:
- Take & post photos
- Research & write
- Like & share
- Pack & ship
Taking & Posting Photos
Mix model photos with mirror shots and individual photos of the item. You can also style your cover photo for more engagement.
Researching & Writing
If you’re able to find the original item listing online, easy: copy & paste. If not, get creative, get to writing and forget to take measurements. Search the web for original pricing and other Poshmark sellers as a benchmark for your listings.
Liking & Sharing
After you’ve posted, ‘like’ postings from similar brands & sellers, then share others’ listings. This increases the likelihood your items will sell & exposes your listing to more potential buyers.
Packaging & Shipping
When the item sells (because it will after you’ve followed my steps), find free boxes at your local post office, print the shipping label and send away!
Make sure you wrap your item(s) in tissue paper and provide a ‘Thank You’ note! You can purchase inexpensive cards at places like Ross, TJ Maxx or Home Goods. If you have quick access to a printer, you can print your own cards too!
Why You Should Sell on Poshmark
Excess Clothing + Hard Work, Pays Off! On average, I set aside two hours a week to do all of the steps above. In one week, I can make up to $200, paying myself back $100 per hour. The time and effort is worth it and a much better return than Plato’s Closet.
