Whether you’re brand spankin’ new to Poshmark or a seasoned veteran Posher, we know you’re looking to grow your following. And why wouldn’t you? More followers leads to more exposure for your listings, which can lead to more sales – cha-ching! But how do you go about making that magical number climb? We’ve got five great tips for you.

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 in  a variety of sizes, if possible, and ensure your covershots are bright, clear, stylized, and original. Plus, the more listings you have, the better. Need inspiration? Here are 10 items you can list right now! Finally, if you do a little research on what brands and trends shoppers are looking for, so you can make sure you’re stocking coveted items that will lead to more eyeballs on your closet.

Follow on

Following others is a very simple way to get people to notice your closet. You can find suggested Poshers 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!” Your friend will get $5 Posh Credits and you will, too, once they make their first purchase. Win win!

Get engaged

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 Posh N Sip 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!).

  1. Question: If someone likes something in your closet does that then make them a follower of your closet??

  2. how does one design their closet page outside of posting their posher pic in the round circle…I’ve seen some people have designs on them and love seeing them so and wanted to do it to mine but short of right clicking on the page, I don’t know what to do. Thanks.

  3. I also read somewhere that we really shouldn’t follow or share closets that aren’t Posh-compliant. Is this true? I currently don’t follow them, because when it comes time to share, I won’t remember who is compliant and who isn’t.
    This leads to my next question: how do so many closets have upwards of 50k-85k followers and closets followed?

    Please tell me what I’m doing wrong, and what I need to do. Thank you!

  4. A few days ago I read something advising Poshers NOT to share other Poshers’ items to parties. The author said that an item is only allowed to be shared once per party, and that it should be shared by the closet owner.

    A new Posher asked me about sharing others’ items to parties, so I told her that we were advised not to. She emailed Posh Support, and was told it was okay to do it.

    Now, not only have I lost credibility as a Posh Mentor, I also cannot find the blog post advising us not to do it!

    Can you PLEASE help me?

  5. Hello, I am new to Poshmark and have a couple of questions. I shared my items tonight in a summer essentials party. After I went to see if I could find them and could not. Did I do something wrong or do we not see our own items. Also I’ve seen talk about having mentors and would like to know more about this. I’m pretty sure I need help😫😀

    1. Hi Carol, your items should be there. Note that there are thousands of items shared during party times. The showroom feed updates in real time, so it is likely that your items are there among the others. If you need help, please reach out to support@poshmark.com.
