Closet on point
First thing’s first, make sure your closet is putting its very best face forward at all times. Of all the tips we recommend, this is the most important. If your closet doesn’t catch the eye of others, they may not follow.
Make sure to fill your closet with a lot of inventory a variety of sizes, if possible, and ensure your covershots are clean, clear, and stylized. Plus, the more listings you have, the better.

Following others is a very simple way to get people to notice your closet. You can find Suggested Users to follow on our people search page by tapping on the people icon in the top left corner of your feed. And if fellow Poshers like what they see when they take a peek at who just followed them, they’re more likely to tap that follow button right back!
Share, share, and share some more
Sharing other Poshers’ items is a great way to show off your personal taste (hello, Posh Stylist!), expand your network, and contribute to the amazing Poshmark community. After all, when you share the love, it always comes back to you.
Additionally, if you share closets that are new to Poshmark, you can establish yourself as a Posh Mentor. (Hint: find a list of new closets to follow by going to My Closet Stats and clicking on New Closets Shared.) All of this sharing means more opportunities for someone to take a look at your closet, love what they see, and follow.
Get your social on
Take your sharing efforts beyond Poshmark for maximum potential. By sharing your closet and listings on other social platforms such as Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr, you have the potential to catch new eyes.
Also, did you know that if your Facebook friend joins Poshmark, they’ll automatically follow your closet? Boom, instant new follower! Just don’t forget to spread the love and follow back! Pro tip: Be sure to find your referral code in the app under “Invite Friends, Earn Cash!” and share to earn both you and your new follower a $5 credit (valid up to 10 invites).
The more active you are in the Poshmark community, the more opportunities for other Poshers to discover and follow your closet. Attend virtual Posh Parties, become a Poshmark Suggested User, attend or host a community meet-up in your area, and co-host a virtual Posh Party. These activities can establish you as an influencer in the community as well as give your closet exposure to other Poshers (and potential new followers!).
