Getting more Poshmark followers is all about being an active part of the community.
If you want to grow your followers you have to get more exposure and to get more exposure you have to share other closets. Sharing is the best and easiest way to grow you audience.
Sharing is Caring
I share a lot. At least four to five times all day. I usually do it during breakfast, right before lunch- anytime I have a few minutes. When others are checking their Instagram or Facebook, I Posh instead. Why? Because the more I share, the more shares I get and which leads to more sales.
Let’s say I have 4k followers and @coolposher has 50k followers (#poshgoals.) If I share a bunch of her listings, then she will most likely share a bunch of mine to her 50k followers who are GREAT exposure for me. Now their followers will as see my items exposure to more people who aren’t following me, yet.
Here is a little strategy that I find works for me. Every day I take a few minutes to go through feeds or past parties and see if anything catches my eye. If there is something I like, I check out that Poshers closet to see what else they are selling. If they have one thing that is my style and size, it is very likely that they have other things I like as well.
Next, I go through their closet and share five to ten items I like. Sometimes I will even leave a comment complimenting them. This helps me stand out among the other 100+ shares that get that day. More often then not the favor is returned, and they share a bunch of my listings.
Be a Party Animal
Unlike sharing your closet to the general feed during specific times, sharing to parties leaves your shares for long-term exposure to shoppers. For example, if you share your sweaters during a Sweater Weather Party, people looking to buy sweaters will click on this party to browse. What you’ve shared will be on there. Tip: try sharing close to when the party is about to end so that your shares are one of the first ones people will see (not everyone scrolls down for hours).
You’d be surprised. Sometimes showing your support and love for women who have host picks can lead to another Posher clicking on your profile photo just to see what you’ve got. Plus, you can make new friends that may share your closet as you share theirs.
Something I just became aware of was that an item could only be shared with a party once so don’t waste your time sharing it many times. Just share a few things from your closet every 15 minutes to spread out your listings through the feed during the party. Also, if you share someone’s else’s listing should only share to your followers. If they already shared it with the party earlier, your share won’t show up anywhere.
You can play the follow game if you want, but I was never into following people so that they can follow me. You want followers who like your style and would buy you items. The same goes for following. I only follow Poshers that have closets I like. It could be awkward at first to start chatting with random on the app, so I found a good a place to start was congratulating Poshers on being a co-host for an upcoming party.
This boosts the probability of that Co-Host looking at your closet for potential host picks. This is the only strategy I have ever used to get to get a host pick, and it works most of the time. Getting a host pick is huge to your following. Your item is posted in a featured feed at the party which gives you so much more exposure then sharing in the main feed.
If you are looking to make friends with Poshers in your area, there are now a ton of Posh Meet-ups in many cities around the country.
Over time you update a listing, your followers can see it in their feed. Not everyone is checking their feed all the time, so updating and listing again will give more visibility for your listings and more shares. You don’t need to update any info on the listing, just choose Edit on the top right-hand corner of the listing.
I usually update all my items 3-4 times a day, twice during parties and twice peak hours. Right before lunchtime works well for me, when people need a “stare at my phone” break. Also after work into the night I see the most action, so I share then too.
