Posh Tip: How To Be A PFF Mentor

Here at Poshmark we talk a lot about PFFs, a.k.a. Poshmark Friends Forever, and spreading the Posh Love. As our community grows, it’s the perfect opportunity for longtime Poshers to help newbies learn the ropes. But what is being a positive mentor really all about?

How to Be a Poshmark Mentor

To start, we have some of the most inspiring, kind, and knowledgeable women on our platform. We truly love our community! Seriously, we’re head over heels obsessed. Every day we see strong, powerful women reaching out to each other to support and be supported. Being a good mentor is taking this Posh Love to the next level and leading by example.

So continue the positive energy and be a stellar leader. When you see conflict, work to be a mediator, not an instigator. Even if your intent is to assist, it can sometimes exacerbate the situation by defending another user. Instead, work to diffuse the issue, and encourage people to reach out to Poshmark’s support team to seek help. We have fully trained staff to step in and assist in any type of situation.

Respecting your fellow Poshers is incredibly important. Never forget the golden rule of treating others the way you would like to be treated! So be sure to show care and compassion in your interactions. Everyone’s situation is different, and that’s part of what makes Poshing so wonderful. We are privileged to have women from all across America on our platform, and it’s important to learn from and connect with each other. Respectful and friendly encounters are the foundation of our community and can open the door to lasting friendships.

  1. hi! I am a newbie, very excited to get started, and posted my first few items today. I am looking for a mentor to help me get to the next level… Or even to inspire me on the level that I Matt. If you are interesting in teaming up with me to help me grow, I would greatly appreciate it. Have a great day! PS. Please email me as there are so many poshmark links that I may not get back to this one or even find it. LOL

  2. I LOOOOOVE this! If anyone is looking for a mentor I would love to connect! Come by my closet @vance289 and check out my “Are you new to Posh- You CAN sit with me” Post 🙂

    • Sylvia, I really don’t think there are qualifications! Anyone who you take under your wing, help guide them on Posh Guidelines & give tips, support and posh love, in my opinion, qualifies as a mentor.

  3. Always happy to mentor! You can find me on Poshmark @ashleysunshine or e-mail me directly through my life + style blog–looking forward to meeting more and more like-minded PFFs and creating long-lasting friendships. xo Ash

  5. Hi ladies!!!

    It is so refreshing to see the sense of community you all have established. Unfortunately, my experience has not been so great, and people have not been very kind. Obviously this is not the overall tone, as is apparent by this thread alone! It definitely makes someone like me, who’s first experience was being treated rudely by a veteran posher for not knowing what I’m doing, feel comfortable and less gunshy about asking for help. This person was obviously the exception and not the rule! You ladies seem super-supportive of one another, and I would be extremely grateful if one of you would mentor me. I have a pretty full closet and have yet to make a sale. (Though I have purchased enough clothe half of Texas 😝) I am currently re-vamping my photos and reading all of the posts I can. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much, and keep up the great work! I love what you’re doing!

  6. I have helped some people with their closets. Sometimes I feel like I can’t say anything onto them because it’s not my place. I have a lot of PFFs and I share and follow always. I have tried to take some of your POSHMARK family but they know what they are doing, one posher told me that she would not take her bra out of her closet because she felt like getting a Host-Pick was just like being in a clic, and I told her that one of my Host-Picks was from a posher I wasn’t even following so you just never know. Anyways besides my Drs visits, POSHMARK is my job. I would like for you to look at my closet and re-evaluate me, rt now I’m trying to help my sister that just joined. Thank you

  7. Hello! Anyone that needs help is more than welcome to visit my closet! I have a listing where anyone can ask me questions about poshmark or anything in general about business and fashion!

    Xoxoxo,

    Tanya
