Power Tips from a Power User

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:

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.

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!

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.

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!

Trend Alert: Citrus

Summertime reminds us of cold lemonade, orange-flavored popsicles, and sundresses in warm citrus colors. When it comes to hot summer trends, citrus instantly brightens up your closet with its sunny color palette! Wear citrus as a showstopper dress or a pop of color on your toes!

With Independence day coming up, we can’t help but salute to the red, white and blue print that we love so much for the summer. Patriotic and pretty, the American flag print brightens up any cut-offs and reminds us of hot summer barbecues and summer romances with the boy next door.

One Trend, Two Ways: Polka Dots

Meet Laura and Emily.

Laura is strutting her way through a fabulous life in Memphis, balancing a day job and her blog, Walking in Memphis in High Heels. Emily is a fashion fanatic originally from Arkansas, living a fashionable life one day at a time and updating her adorable blog, The Sweetest Thing.

Laura and Emily met on Poshmark and instantly connected through their love for fashion(hello, matching shoes!)… and the rest is Posh history! Today, they are collaborating with us to feature one of our favorite trends for the summer: polka dots.

Here’s what they have to say about this trend:

“Polka dots have been around forever in fashion, but they are still so fun and fresh today. They’re such a great classic trend and can act like a neutral too! I am loving them for this spring and summer to add an extra punch to my outfits.”

– Laura

“Polka dots are back! ‘O’, but wait! Did this fun pattern ever leave the fashion scene? No, because polka dots are a fashion staple! Polka dots can be fun and retro, very geometric, classic, sophisticated, graphically bold, and very modern. For me, the beauty of the dots is its natural ability to play well with other patterns. Mixing dots with stripes or plaids, or other colors and/or sizes of dots allows me to mix and match and expand my wardrobe while creating an unique style … with a pop!”

– Emily
