How to Prep for PoshFest 2020

With PoshFest 2020 just around the corner, we’re getting you prepped so you don’t miss a thing. Our annual conference looks a little different this year, and whether it’s your 1st time attending PoshFest or your 8th, we want to make sure you’re set. 

Create your space 
You’ll want to be comfortable for 2 days worth of networking, attending sessions, and all the Posh Love! Get creative and set up your own PoshFest corner. Whether it’s decorating your Posh Office or creating a sign to let the people you live with know you’ll be busy (i.e. Do Not Disturb, Currently Poshing), create your ideal setup so you can tune in easily and comfortably. 

Pick your style
You know we love a good #PoshStyle! Put on your party shoes—the best part about our annual conference being virtual is that you get to choose between PJs or wearing your latest Posh find. Better yet, why not wear the PoshFest shirt that was specially delivered in your swag box? 

Prep your tech
Make sure you have your tools READY. 

  • Keep your charger on hand so you’re fueled up the entire day
  • Make sure you have a strong WiFi connection
  • Install the latest version of Zoom ahead of time

Download your background
Show your devices some Posh love—download official Poshmark mobile, desktop, and Zoom backgrounds!

Fuel up
It’s going to be a long morning! Make sure to keep your favorite snacks (or brunch!), drinks, and goodies on hand while you listen to our stellar lineup of community and guest speakers. We recommend a cup of coffee so you can Posh and sip your morning away. 

Plan ahead
Don’t wait until the last minute! Make sure you map out your PoshFest and choose your breakouts ahead of time so you know exactly where to go. Note: All items are listed in Pacific Time. (Here’s a time zone converter just in case!) 

Get social
While we wish we could see you IRL, we still want to see where you’re tuning in from! Here’s just a few ways to stay in the loop: 

  • CONNECT: with your fellow Poshers on Instagram to see how they’re preparing for our virtual event. Don’t forget to tag us @poshmark and use the official hashtag, #PoshFest2020, for the chance to be featured in our Instagram Stories throughout the day. 
  • SHARE: a photo of your setup, your #PoshStyle, or however you’re celebrating the weekend and share it on social media. 
  • PLUS, stay tuned for exciting announcements and giveaways. 

First time attending PoshFest? 
We are so excited for you to experience PoshFest for the first time! Get ready to soak up the Posh knowledge, learn tips and tricks to level up your business, and meet new PFFs. Need some #PoshTips for prepping? Think about any questions you have and areas of your business you want to grow. Grab a notebook and take lots of notes! We recommend connecting with other Poshers during and after PoshFest to keep the conversations going.

Q: Let’s talk sourcing. Where do you get your inventory and how has your strategy evolved recently?  
A: Before COVID-19, I did a lot of thrifting at local thrift shops. I like supporting the mom and pop stores around me. I also went to the Goodwill outlet centers, called “the bins.” I was fortunate enough when COVID-19 hit I had a huge “death pile” (aka clothing that hasn’t been listed yet). I also started sourcing online [like David did]. I found multiple closets that do 5 for $25, mystery boxes, or reseller boxes and I’ve purchased a few of those. By selling one item you can triple the money you spent, don’t sleep on Poshmark guys!

Q: What strategies do you have for making a sale?
A: Definitely using the new Copy Listing feature. Going through and relisting my stuff constantly has really helped pick up sales!

Q: What is one thing you wish you knew when you first started on Poshmark?
A: A big thing I always say, is that you don’t have to have the biggest and the best equipment. Since we’re all college students, it’s really hard to have a bunch of money to get ring lights and have a gorgeous set up.

I love sharing the story of my dorm, from one wall to the other wall, it was 6 ft. I stood up on my dorm bed and on the other side of the wall, I had a little shelf and I put my phone up there on a timer and opened my window for some natural light, and stood up on my bed and did some awkward model shots. That was my set up. You can’t necessarily always afford the best things, but get creative, be confident in yourself, and find your own style.

Q: Where do you get your inventory and how has your strategy evolved recently?  
A: Since COVID-19, I have purchased one bundle box from a Poshmark seller I follow on Instagram. Purchasing bundles on Poshmark is a great way to source while COVID-19 is happening and is also a great way to support a fellow Posher while acquiring inventory at a low cost. Now I’m back reselling my own items along with other family members while waiting out COVID-19. 

Q: What is your top sourcing tip?
A: I love a good deal and anything that catches my eye. When sourcing, I’m always hunting for good name brands at good prices to resell while having a large selection of women’s items. 

Q: What strategies do you have for making a sale?
A: Aside from providing new listings, I really focus on the overall customer experience to all the Poshers who are looking at and shopping in my closet. Great customer service is very different on Poshmark via in-person (totally different dynamic).

I have taken all my learnings from my in-person training and have applied them online to Poshmark. If someone likes an item, I will go to the Bundle Feature and add the liked item (or items) into a bundle with a personal comment letting them know a about a sale or answer any questions while providing a great customer experience.

Q: What are your favorite Poshmark tools or features and why?
A: I really love the new Copy Listing feature on the app! This is a great way to give a listing “New Life” update without having to keep dropping the price. Also, this is a great way to create a new listing without redoing all the info, size, pictures. It’s so easy! 

Q: You’re all reps in our Posh On Campus program. How has getting involved with the community helped you?
A: What sets Poshmark apart from all others is the community and the millions of users but we’re still so tight-knit. All the events and programs really help bring the community together.

Being part of Poshmark has taught me to be my own manager, finance team, merchandiser, fulfillment, and supply-chain. These skills have taught me so much responsibility to apply in my real world. I consider this part of my professional profile! Poshmark has also taught me so much about customer experience, the fashion industry, marketing/branding, and time management. Along with putting myself out there while setting goals!

Q: Where do you get your inventory and how has your strategy evolved recently?  
A: My inventory comes from my own closet. I like to rotate my wardrobe a lot, and I usually buy my personal pieces off Poshmark. As soon as the season changes, I’ll list the items that I’m ready to part with. I’m a big fan of supporting small businesses, and it’s important to recycle clothes until they can no longer be used so there is less textile waste. 

Q: What are your favorite Poshmark tools or features and why?
A: I like the Bundle Feature because it lets you talk to buyers on a personal level. The comments don’t have to be public. I’ve had a buyer provide me their exact measurements, and I was able to advise her accurately if something would fit her based on that personal information. You can customize your pricing just for the buyer too. It’s a great way to connect personally. 

Q: You’re all reps in our Posh On Campus program. How has getting involved with the community helped you?
A: My second semester I became a rep, and it changed my entire college experience. We would do photoshoots in our Posh On Campus sweaters, and it was really fun. The community of Poshmark resellers is the most supportive group. We have a huge group chat with 100+ resellers, and we all support each other’s closest and sales. We get so many opportunities on Poshmark that not all resellers get, which makes it unique. All the Posh On Campus reps come from such different backgrounds and majors, so there are a lot of unique perspectives. 

Q: What’s one goal you want to achieve by the end of 2020?
A: I want to have more listings by the end of 2020. I have a smaller closet right now, so I really want to grow that. Poshmark is my portfolio, so the more I grow it, it shows that I’m serious about this. I have 300 right now, but I want to get to 500 by the end of the year.
