Tip # 1 ; Descriptions are worth a thousand words ;
Be descriptive as possible when creating a listing, you never know who is looking for a specific item. Let's say you're listing this
|Find this cardigan here!|
for the title I used "Brand New NWTs Chunky Fair Isle Cardigan" letting the potential buyer know that this item is brand new with the tags still attached, also letting them know the print and that it's a chunky cardigan, other words I could use in the title to help a potential buyer would be large buttons, snowflakes, Christmas, holidays, etc. If you have a lot of words that could describe the item and not enough space in the title, use it in the description because it will still show up for searches, with this example I actually used other keywords in the description.
Tip #2 ; Cover Shot
The first thing your potential buyer sees is the cover shot of your item so make sure the photo is good quality and shows your item well, here are a few examples.
The first photo doesn't show the full item but it's aesthetically pleasing and will appeal to plenty of potential buyers, the second photo is a collage of a stock photo and an ootd type photo this shows potential buyers how the item might look on them plus gives them an outfit idea, the last one is of the item on a mannequin while showing the full item. You can also do flatlays with a plain background or with a few aesthetic items. For example let's say you're selling some workout leggings, you can lay them on a solid background and add some sneakers and headphones on the side to have a nice cover shot. I use multiple cover themes and sometimes I change all my cover shots to change up my shop and I have noticed sales increase with different covers. When I first started I used photos like the one below then started changing it up and I started making more sales. You want a photo that will catch the buyers eye.
Tip #3 ; Make Offers
Always list your items for a little more than you're wanting to make because people love deals, give yourself some wiggle room for sales or for offers. While people can send offers don't forget to take advantage of the offer to buyers feature. I've made many sales by making offers to likers. Most of the time when I'm wanting to lower the price of an item I will make offers to likers and if doesn't sell by the next day I will lower the price to new potential buyers, this will also share your item to the "price drop" page for that brand.
Tip #4 ; SHARE!
Everyone always recommends to share other shops listings because other shops tend to return the favor and your items will be shared with their followers. While I recommend you share items from other peoples shops, I also recommend you share your own listings. Sharing your listings will make them pop up on the brand page and will bring in new followers and potential customers plus it also keeps your shop organized, as all your active listings will be at the top of your closet. Personally I share my listings every single day, multiple times a day. If you have a little free time instead of scrolling through facebook, go share your listings and potentially make some money.
Tips #5 ; Join the Party
Poshmark holds 3 Parties a day and if you have items that you can share to those parties, I recommend sharing those items. When Posh holds certain parties like "Trending: Zara, Converse, Levi’s & More Party" share your Zara, Converse, & Levi's items because people in that party are looking for those specific brands.
