My Week In Sales: $800 and It’s Only Been A Week!

Summary: Sold $800 on Poshmark for the month already and it’s only Nov 10th, here’s how I did it.

First off,  sorry for those of you who were saddened by the election results this week. It came to a shock to a vast majority of people including myself. But whatever, we are all one country and we change, we move on, and it’s time to focus on moving forwards and making those sales we got Christmas people!

It’s been a bitchin’ time for Poshmark sales because this is the time when sales pick up like crazy! I’ve been hitting some MAJOR MAJOR breakthroughs that I would like to share with you because I officially broke $800 and it’s only the second week of the month!

At Poshfest, there was a workshop called Poshmark Power Users. Which were led by the two very talented ladies: Lyn McLaughlin Cromar and Jessica Craddock who manage their own Poshmark Facebook Support Groups. They suggested some tricks to boost up some sales and I am happy to report that they do work!

After some major thrifting this past week, I have gone out on business and during my downtime to some pretty good thrift shops around the country and happy to report that the majority of my finds have brought in enough sales that they have already paid themselves off!

One of the key things they mentioned, in addition to sharing, and to following…was LISTING!!! For me and my new inventory, I have made it a rule that I am NOT allowed to shop for my inventory, until everything that I previously purchased has been listed. Makes for a happy home! My husband starts seeing things go out the door instead of piled high in my office. His anxiety has gone down, and merch is starting to circulate! YASS!!

One of their big suggestions was to list DAILY. Yes daily! I  highly highly recommend it, because really it generates revenue for you, obviously, because if you don’t list it, it can’t be sold. But they mentioned that the constant activity in your closet will trigger the analytics of your account to increase your sales. So listing anything, they mentioned a pic of your dog, will help keep that constant activity, which will increase the likelihood of sales. NOW… I personally have no proof of this, it obviously would be in the coding somewhere, which I don’t have access to and wouldn’t know how to read anyway. But what I can give you is my own personal experience.

Have I sold more sales using this method? Short answer: yes.
Have I listed everyday? Yes.
Have I put up listings of my dog? Sadly, no.

But!

I have double listed items in my closet on days where I didn’t have anything to list, which is something they mentioned to try to do as well and it works! I also have changed up how I list things. I stick with the white background that I have mentioned for cover shots, so that is what I have transitioned into since the chevron days!

Just a hint of what I have already sold from my closet this month on Poshmark!

I do think you should try it out, you may increase your sales, but for me, it’s going real well. This shouldn’t however deter you from following and sharing other closets as well as your own, this should be in addition to what you already do. Remember to limit your activity to peak times and you should be all good!

If you have any questions, feel free to drop on by and put em down below. I say that because I actually need comments on these posts so please please please try not to comment on the FB post or on my listings on Poshmark. Also if you have gotten this far, please like the post as well, it helps others find the information too! THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!

 

Stay Healthy,

  1. 2 questions for you ! When you say relist , do you mean delete and remake the listing ? Dumb question I know . Also where do you thrift shop? Do you list things you find for a profit ? I am really interested in trying that out ! I have been selling for a few years , but would love to make extra cash that way!

  3. Question, when you double listed did you leave it up for a day? Two? Until it sold? Or just a couple hrs? How many did you double list a day? I tend to delete my photos (except cover shots) from my phone once I list. I hate holding on to them, so this whole double listing thing has me on the fence.

    1. I leave it up there in my closet. I don’t have them next to each other just in different areas. It’s up to you how you want to market your closet. But for me, newer items tend to get pushed to more eyes more often then not, and I’m doing really well selling them. Some people delete them after 2 weeks. That’s entirely up to you, but any doubles that get sold I delete the other listing.

      1. Precisely, some people suggest to delete the first listing, then re-list the second one. But you should start doing that typically after 2 weeks. If it doesn’t sell within 2 weeks, just re-list it!

  4. My Posh sales are either constant or stagnant. I know I should take some more boutique style cover photos of items so they’re more appealing. It’s really hard in MI this time of year, by the time i get home, its dark and the good light is gone! I will take all my staged photos at once and upload listings throughout the week instead of all at once!
