I remember posting about joining Poshmark once upon a time … I just looked and it was all the way back in June! I am still listing and selling there, but it can be so slow. I just took a look at my stats, and since I started selling in June I have sold 92 things. Which isn’t nothing … but when you think about it, and how many days I have been active on PM … it really isn’t a lot.
Listing on PM takes almost no time because I cross-post from eBay. I usually need to square my photos (I use Pixlr, it works great) and from there it is just cut and paste. Lickety split.
Fun fact: almost 1/3 of the sales I have made on PM have been costumes. I bought a LOT after Halloween last year and immediately cross-posted them all, which has paid off.
I became a Posh Ambassador a few months back. I actually had all of the requirements in place to earn that status several months before with the exception of having actually made a PM purchase myself.
(Actually, randomly, I did make a PM purchase shortly after joining and the package was lost by the USPS! I never got it. I waited a couple weeks hoping to receive the package, but no dice. When I let PM know I had never received the package (as verified by the tracking) my money was promptly refunded.)
Fast forward several months I made a second purchase which did actually arrive, I left a love note, and voila! Posh Ambassador. I’m not sure if it actually affects my sales at all, but it definitely affects my number of followers. I get many, many more followers now than I did previously.
Since the beginning of the year I have been keeping track of my number of listings and followers, mostly as a curiosity to see how it progresses.

I try to be active on PM every day. Most days I create three new listings.
I share to parties as appropriate. I share my own listings and follow and share the listings of others. I try to do this every day, but I also try to only do this in chunks of time that I wouldn’t be doing anything else. (For example, my five minute walk from my car in to work, my breaks at work, riding in the car when my husband is driving.) I try not to let PM sharing invade my real life or online working hours because if I let it, it could TAKE OVER!
I would really like to get to the point where I could consistently have one PM sale every day. That doesn’t seem like too much to ask, does it? I would be happy to take any advice from those who also sell on PM. What have you done to help increase your own sales? Please share!
