Happy December! This month, I have some more Poshmark seller hacks to share with you. If you haven’t already, check out last month’s tips here.
Model your clothes. Ask a friend to model for you. Photos of items from the original website feel spammy to me personally. I’m more inclined to look at a closet that feels humanized. Add your personality during the process. Maybe pick a background that reflects your style: backyard, room, kitchen, etc.

Share listings from recent followers. Don’t just follow back. Engage with your followers. Like their listings. Comment on their “meet your posher” post. Find a common ground. They already have an interest in your closet, so reciprocate right away.
Include previous customers. Follow back immediately, if you haven’t already. Your database begins with people that have invested in your closet. Treat it like a small business! In a way, you’re marketing your style while researching theirs. You want to connect with as many people as you can, especially those that have already reached out to you.
Host a holiday sale. I did this on Thanksgiving Eve to Cyber Monday. I increased my bundle discount to 30% on a minimum of two times, in addition to dropping prices significantly. Although I offered some awesome deals, I was able to profit from that weekend alone. Pitch a sale for Christmas! People will want to spend their leftover gift budgets or money they received as a gift. Create a separate listing (not-for-sale) with an image to promote and share the sale, too. Post it all over social media.
Advertise items as the lowest price. Use the title of the item for this offer. Add emojis. Capitalize it. You want to communicate to your audience is that this is the lowest price you’ll offer for a particular item. However, take note that this will close off any offers if you decide to stick with the price — even though users are still able to bid through the app.
