I Sold $2500 In a Few Days On Poshmark!!!

This is BIG guys. You’re gonna wanna read the WHOLE SHABANG!! Let me give you a glimpse into my world right now. My Poshmark notifications are going off non-stop. People bundling into the wee hours of the morning. Mountains of packages piled high. This all in a span of just a few days!

Just the start of my Poshmark sales

Overall in total just as of right now, I’ve made somewhere over $2000, moved 114 items, 68 orders and had over 100+ offers submitted (and counting!). IN A FEW DAYS!!!!! I KNOW RIGHT?!?? This is my biggest sales record so far, last time it was 47 items in 24 hours.

So how did I do it?

I had a sale! Just like everyone else! But this time, it wasn’t just any kiiiiind of sale. I had a LOWBALL SALE. So you can say I’m LOW BALLLLINNNNN’!!!!!

Ads for my Lowball sale on Poshmark

2 things I want to mention here:

  1. I decided to flip the script: People hate lowballers. I decided that I was going to welcome them into my closet and have them shop.
  2. I came to the realization that everyone is a lowballer. You, me, and the entire world. No one WANTS to be a lowballer, but people do want to get stuff for free or even for less than the posted price. I just made it ok for them to do so.

This all started when my husband and I started out plans for moving and the moving estimate was somewhere in the $9000 range 😱. The biggest bulk of the boxes would be from my inventory, so I needed to downsize and downsize quick!

Created ADs in my closet to alert people of the sale

But I’m not into losing my money! 

Oh don’t worry honey. I did some serious prepping before I posted up any such ad. My husband would kill me if I didn’t think this through. So naturally I started working on my Poshmark Inventory Spreadsheet and looked up the prices of items and my clients items. And made sure that EVERY SINGLE SALE didn’t go in the red. I made a promise that I would NOT go under on any of these items.

That includes my time/gas driving out and buying the item. Storage, shipping materials, and my time and effort LISTING the dang thing! All that included with the actual cost of the item. So with all that calculated into each of my 500 items I was ready to go.

Also something to keep in mind, Poshmark doesn’t allow someone to lowball you to $0. It’s just not possible. A buyer MUST submit an offer 20% or higher than your listed price. Before anyone makes the comment I am going to clarify: if the listing price is $100 the buyer can’t offer you lower than $20. So price accordingly 😉.

Opening The Flood Gates

I started out with like 1-2 ads on my page then grew to about 9-10. It was MADNESS!! I couldn’t make dinner, my husband and I we were going CRAZY, just pulling items and printing labels. We were going mad trying to get 30+ packages out on a Sunday before our flights! Thankfully Meijer takes packages on Sundays, HOORAY!

I also put notes in the ad listings that for certain brands or items of clients would be countered for the sake of satisfying their minimums. So I countered an F-ton. I wasn’t about to go down like that!!

Conclusion

Now this might not be the sale for you, if you’re a business owner and you already do well, then you keep doing you Boo Boo! Don’t mind me, I need to move inventory like NOW so until my moving date, I’ll have my sale up and going!

I know there will be a million questions on this, I will happily answer them down below in the comments box. Also please put your closet name and your link for others to check out your closet!

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!!!

My Week In Sales – Men’s Items Are Hot!

Good morning fam!

Just wanted to do a quick Poshmark blog post today and share some of my weekly trials and triumphs. This past week was pretty good, Ryan and I did some last minute shopping for the week and while we were out we snagged a few men’s fashion items that we wanted to re-sell. I posted them up within 24 hours and within the week BOTH items sold!

Men’s Nike Running Shoes 8.5
I absolutely couldn’t believe it! It sold faster than my $30 Twilight jacket from BB Dakota (which was severely underpriced btw)! But I’ve only had 3 items in my closet that were men’s and to have 2 of them sell so quickly?! Just WOW!! If you’re handsome hubby has clothes to re-sell get em to start modeling because MEN’S ITEMS ARE HOT!!

Ashton Kutcher Poshmark Pop Up Shop
Also with Ashton Kutcher’s Pop Up shop it’s causing a new influx of male users and shoppers. Not to mention his whole closet sold in less than 2 hours. I mean my husband wants to start up on Poshmark now. He’s got the bug!!

Be sure to check out part 2 of Ashton’s pop up shop today at 12pm PST!


I’m telling you ladies, if you’re looking to make some quick extra sales, start moving out some of your husbands inventory and start making some extra cash. That way you can also make some space in the closet for your stuff too!! LOLz

My Week in Sales 8.30.16

Sold: $112

Spent: I don’t know but more than what I earned!

This week has been a bit crazy. If you’ve already seen, I posted a couple of posts, one of which are the Poshmark Games and the other, the Poshmark Inventory Workbook as well as the Poshmark Closet of the Month. So I’ve been spending more time on my blog as of late, and my YouTube channel to put out some great content for you guys! In exchange for the time put in here I haven’t been spending as much time sharing on Poshmark, if at all. So I haven’t been selling as much as I should. Continue reading My Week in Sales 8.30.16

My Week in Sales: 11 items in 24 hours!

It’s been awhile now since I’ve done some major price drops since the last time I listed. I always make it a pattern to drop my closet down after two weeks of listing it and seeing how things sell. It’s been quite some time because I’ve listed things separately on different times that I forgot entirely when I listed certain items. This week though, I thought it was an ideal time to drop, mainly because it was the holiday weekend and definitely not because I shopped my heart out last month 😁.

Recent purchase: Lululemon Y Tank in Sugar Crush
