THE BASICS OF POSHMARK SUCCESS
Sharing is caring on the Poshmark app. It's a way of showing support to your PFF and get attention drawn to you closet. You should share your PFFs listings as often as possible and be sure to share your own listings as well.
There are different techniques and hacks out there, but in a nutshell, the more sharing you do, the more opportunities you create to make sales. Many times, when you share, your fellow Posher will share back, bringing more eyes to your closet.
Be sure to share to other social platforms like Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook, for example. This will lead your listings to larger audiences, again, providing more opportunities to make sales.
Following more broadens the listings that come into your feed and can broaden your follower base. The more Poshers you follow, the more options you have in your feed, the more opportunities you create.
Some Poshers use the approach of following all the followers of their favorite closet. If you are a follower when this is done, you now have a new follower, simply because you followed your fellow Posher.
I could go on and on, but the point is, following closets is as valuable as sharing. Note: When you decide to follow, follow closets that share your style. Poshers that have a similar style as your own are more likely to be interested in your listings.
Listing items often keeps you in the main Poshmark feed of newly listed items. It's one of the best ways to get new eyes to your closet.
When preparing to list, prep is usually required. Whether you have to steam the item to be photographed or after you've made your first sale. Here's a list of supplies that will help you care for your items. Clothing Prep List.

Shipping Supply List
Staying organized will help in life in general. Keeping your appointments and Posh goals written down keeps your goals tangible and also clears space in your head for all the other things in life you have to keep a track of.
Creating a spreadsheet or using good ole' pen and paper to create lists and deadlines are two good ways to keep a schedule.
