Canada: Posh N Sip Host Guide

We’re excited to have you host a Posh N Sip! Get started with the instructions below: 

  • Meet with your co-host(s). It’s important to connect with anyone you plan to host with. If you choose to host your event by yourself, that works too! 
  • Figure out timing. Be sure to pick a day and time for your event where people are likely to be free, like weekends or evenings. 
  • Select a platform. When selecting a virtual platform, make sure it’s easy to access and that you provide instructions on how to join. Here are a few options you can explore:  
    • Zoom
    • Google Hangouts
    • Facebook Rooms
      • After you select a platform, be sure to test that all links are working correctly and that you can incorporate any programming seamlessly before your event. If you’re hosting your event through Zoom, we’ve included some virtual backgrounds to help you “decorate”!
  • Create an agenda. We’ll provide you with some giveaways to raffle off during your Posh N Sip, but the rest of the agenda is up to you! Here are a few ideas: 
    • Invite a guest speaker
    • Throw a virtual dance party
    • Share favourite Poshmark moments
  • Spread the word about your event. Using your own social media channels and Poshmark closet to promote your event is a great way to drive attendees! Here are some things you can try:
