Creating an awesome Covershot is always helpful to get your item sold. Here are three different types of Covershots we’ve seen work well within the community!
1) The “I’m so lucky to have a photog help me” Covershot. If you’re fortunate enough to be this person, here’s our Posh Tip: Go outdoors! Lighting is so crucial to getting a good photo. Best time to take a picture? Golden hour, just when the sun is just about to set. Here are some great examples of some Seller Stylistswho’ve taken their Covershots outdoors:
2) Next, we have the “Modeled Covershot.” This is when you don’t have a photog handy, but still want to have an eye-catching listing.
Posh Tip: Make sure you have decent lighting and be sure to angle your camera just enough so that you can get a good shot of what you’re trying to sell. Here are some great examples of a few mirror selfie gems:
3) Lastly, the flat lay. This is when you want to do a listing, but don’t have the energy to put the item on. (C’mon, we’ve all been there!) We’ve seen some really awesome items styled together, and guess what? They sell! We’re finding that giving some style inspiration to the Covershot is super helpful.
Posh Tip: Keep it simple. We find that when there are too many pieces, it can be distracting and actually take away from what you’re trying to highlight. Here are some great examples of some styled Covershots:
