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.  

We’re so excited to kick off PoshFest 2020!

Highlights from St. Louis

What are your tips for new Poshers?
“Be creative. I always feel like whenever I see something, I always think, ‘Can I repaint this?’ Then, somebody else can buy it and they can be creative too. The other thing is to be very thorough in your descriptions.” – @cactusandpeony

What keeps you going?
“I have a note. […] It says, ‘Believe in your hustle.’ I want everybody out there to believe in your hustle. You can do this.” – @eddiej314

Highlights from Orlando

Why Thursday is the best day to send an Offer to Likers:
“Friday is usually payday. I know Friday someone can say, ‘Oh, my check came in?’ and ‘Oh, someone sent me an offer for a good deal!’ How convenient.” – @thecurlycactus

What’s your tip for new Poshers?
“Don’t try and compare yourself.” – @thecurlycactus
“Stick to a routine.” – @lovembmstore
“Don’t give up.” – @taetae821

PoshFest 2019 Recap: New Features, Posh Tips, and more

PoshFest 2019 was one for the books. From hearing your inspiring stories to learning about all the NEW features coming out, there were so many exciting and notable moments during our biggest PoshFest ever. Couldn’t make it? No problem! We’re breaking down all the key takeaways from each session right here.

State of the Posh Union

Wondering what’s next for Poshmark? We got the inside scoop from our fearless leader, Manish Chandra, during the annual State of the Posh Union. “In the last seven years, not only have we changed retail but each one of you has gone out and re-invented retail in a big way…and the world is starting to recognize it.” Manish also touched on some major accomplishments from the past year including the launch of  Canada and the Home Market. To top it off, there was a special (virtual) appearance from our very own Poshmark board member, Serena Williams.

Game-Changing Features 

We’re constantly striving to create technology to help you make more sales and shop smarter. This year, we announced a couple of NEW features that will be coming out soon including: 

  • Posh Stories. Soon, you’ll be able to film and post short videos right on Poshmark. This feature will help showcase your brand and style in a fresh new way.
  • My Inventory Report. This seller tool will help you to take a closer look at your current inventory and manage it more closely. You’ll be able to see the cost price, days listed, and more for each of your listings. 

There were also tons of tips and tricks shared around existing features: 

  • Posh Markets. Markets are a great way to reach new shoppers and grow your business. Simply share your listings and the product will surface them to the most relevant, high-intent buyers in each respective Market. 
  • Posh Bundle. Bundles are now social, making it easier than ever to chat with your shoppers. Bundles are 2 times more likely to sell when you leave a comment.  
  • Offer to Likers and Price Drops. The more offers you make, the more likely you are to make a sale—especially during Closet Clear Out and Make a Deal Days
  • My Sales Report. This report provides you with endless insights into your business. For example, you can use the data to figure out where the majority of your shoppers are located and develop a strategy around the ideal time to send offers. 
  • Showrooms. Whether you’re a pro at sourcing inventory or just starting out, showrooms are a great way to get an idea of what brands and items are trending. 

Build Your Brand Outside of Poshmark 

In today’s ever-changing digital world, the power of building a cohesive brand and perfecting your content strategy can completely change the way you run your business. We heard from multiple Poshers who have taken their digital footprint to the next level. Learn more by checking out session recaps below. 

  • Discoverability. It’s important to have relevant YouTube titles, descriptions, thumbnails, keywords, and Instagram hashtags to make sure that you’re reaching the right audience.   
  • Content Marketing. Whether your content is educational, inspirational, or entertaining, make sure your message resonates with your audience.  
  • Consistency. Do your best to post at a regular time and day. If you’re finding it hard to stay consistent, using a scheduling platform and figuring out a cadence that works for you is a good start.

Easy Ways to Level Up Your Business 

Want to take your Poshmark business to the next level? We learned firsthand from Posh Bosses on what strategies they use to grow their businesses. 

  • Covershots. Take the time to edit the brightness, contrast, and clarity of your photos, so that your listings stand out.
  • Listing Description. When your listing’s description contains more than 100 words, the likelihood of a sale increases by 40%.
  • Retention. Always focus on giving your customers the best experience possible so they’ll want to purchase from you again. It’s worth taking a few extra minutes to package things nicely and write a personalized thank you card.
  • Goals. Set a sales goal and break it down by month, week, and day. This gives you a clear idea of how your business is growing and keeps you on track. 
  • Connect. Put yourself out there and connect with the community. You’ll learn tons of tips and different strategies that you can incorporate into your business. It also helps you feel like you are working with other people towards a common goal.

Posh Party LIVE | Seattle Recap

We felt the #PoshLove, Seattle! ❤️️ Thank you to all the Seller Stylists who joined us for Posh Party LIVE! Couldn’t make it this time around? Check out all the highlights below.

Highlights from Seattle

“When sourcing, I’m looking for something where the comparables are good. So basically you’re going to wanna go in on Poshmark and look at the sold listings. Comparables are where you’re going to find what your item is really worth.” – @elducho

“Look at your price range! We tend to bump up the price up into submitting offers. And I think that’s valid but don’t bump it up so high that it might seem out of price range.” – @thecolorcoder

“I prefer Offer to Likers over Closet Clear Out only because I tend to have items that are a lower price. So if I have something that is only $20, I don’t publicly drop that. So I love Offer to Likers, because I send the same offer privately every couple of weeks.” – @ohthatssnazzy
