I’ve officially begun another social media journey. This one began in my closet and will hopefully end in my bank account. I’m a female, and naturally, I have a closet full of clothes, and some clothes there go unworn. So I created an account on the Poshmark app, and I’m ready to sell!
Essentially, Poshmark is a place to sell or buy used clothing/accessories. (Check out this review, some great points, and some that I’ll talk about in this post).
Here’s my take so far.
1. I LOVE the concept.
2. It’s my second day on the app, and I’m already starting to hate the people. I’ve already seen people negotiate ridiculous prices, send users to PayPal, and other things that are supposedly against Poshmark policy.
3. I’m at a loss for how to promote my listings. It’s a social network that I’m willing to put a little time into, but I’m not sure how to get my closet out there.
4. Some users have hundreds of listings…HOW do you have that many clothes that you want to sell? And most of them designer!? It’s giving me the impression that some people are using Poshmark to earn some serious money, which isn’t exactly the community I want to promote my gently-used, Target-bought, blouse to.
5. I don’t want to see stock images of the clothes. I’d really rather see it on the hanger on the back of a door. I guess this relates to #4, but I thought this would be a less intimidating environment.
I’ll most likely write a follow up for this app, especially when I sell my first item!
