Power Tips from a Power User

image

Hi Poshmark friends!

I’m Cris from the fashion and lifestyle blog, My Fashion Juice. On the Poshmark app, I’m known as @myfashionjuice. Today, I’m taking over Poshmark’s blog to share some tips to my fellow Poshers out there. As one of the Suggested Users and long time Poshers, I am constantly asked how I reached over 2 million followers and get a lot of sales.

Here are some tips:

image

Your cover photo means everything. It’s the first thing that people see when they browse through their feed. Your cover photo shouldn’t just be attractive, it should stand out from the rest. Make sure your photos are clear and your items are well presented, with the right color.

At the same time, add as many photos as you can to give your buyers a 360-view of the item. This gives buyers more confidence when shopping your closet and minimizes inquiries about how the back or side looks, etc.

image

I’m always amazed with Poshers who get creative with their listing. Those closets that strike you most are obviously the ones you remember and visit every time. Take a cue from @maymayscloset who hangs her items against a chalkboard/wall and writes interesting phrases and/or descriptions about the item she’s listing. Extra points for her beautiful handwriting!

image

I always tell my fellow Poshers to share their listings at least three times a day. Believe me, it’s effective. Sharing is like advertising. If you’re not sharing your items to your followers and to Posh Parties, then it’s like selling secretly in the dark corners of the web! How would they know what you’re selling if you’re not actively advertising?

So remember to share regularly. It only takes 5 minutes or less during your break time! And when people share your items, listen to @tammyk289 and try to share back. I try to share at least 5 to 10 other people every time I’m on the app. Not only will they appreciate it, but they will remember you and share your items regularly.

image

No matter what commenters or potential buyers say, even if it’s something negative about your listing, always keep your cool. Be nice and be professional when responding to all inquiries. At the same time, respond to comments in a timely manner and always ship out your sold items on time.

Follow these tips and sooner or later, you’ll find yourself with a growing number of followers and sales. And make sure to join me tonight as I host the “City Chic” Posh Party! Hope to see you there!

Host Feature: Lucy of Daily Disguise

image

Not only is Lucy of Daily Disguise a local fashion blogger and an all-around cutie, she is a power Poshmark user and our host for tonight’s Posh Party! Without a doubt, we wanted to get up close and personal with her views on fashion, Zooey Deschanel, and of course, Poshmark! 
1. Where did you get the idea to start your blog? What does your blog title mean?
I started my blog because I had just finished Law School, and with plenty of time on my hands and an overflowing closet, I determined to find better, more efficient ways to wear clothes that I already owned (and hopefully shop a little less). Eventually my blog transitioned from daily outfits into guides to help people wear items more than once, in creatively stylish ways, and thus my ‘5 Ways To Wear’ series were born. My blog title, Daily Disguise, just represents the day to day outfits that we meticulously plan every morning, our daily disguises.
2. How did you find out about Poshmark and when did you know you were addicted?
I found out about Poshmark through my good blogger friend, Sarah from The Weekend Diary, and realized I was addicted when each of my listings started getting shared and eventually sold quickly; I felt as if I was running my own little shop with customers and clients to satisfy.

3. If you could raid any ones closet who would it be and why?
Hands down, Zooey Deschanel; her style is so effortless, yet girly and edgy at the same time.
4. Your blog photos (and Covershots!) are absolutely stunning- who takes your photos for you and what tips would you have for other Poshmarkers?
My amazing boyfriend, Andrew. I first started off trying to take my own photos, but looking back on it now my current photos are a world of difference from my self-shot ones. If you don’t have someone to take your photos for you, my best suggestion is networking with some fellow Poshmarkers and bloggers and take each other’s photos; you’ll be able to capture angles and compose your picture in ways you wouldn’t be able to do yourself.
image
5. Why do you love Poshmark?
It’s an amazing way to effectively recycle and refresh my closet. Shopping other people’s closets is slightly addicting, too.

6. If the President of the United States was a designer, who would you elect as the leader of the most fashionable country?

Alexander Wang 2016.

7. What is your favorite summer trend?
Lucite! Clear heels, shoes, bags, you name it. Plus it sounds like my name!
If you want to shop Lucy’s classic closet, check her out on Poshmark!
