The holidays will be here before you know it. And one thing on everyone’s mind…clothes. Though the gatherings may be smaller this year (or virtual even) people still want to find that perfect outfit matched with those perfect accessories. Poshmark is going to be the go-to shopping destination for many as they plan out their holiday ensembles. And it won’t just be about what they wear either—many will also be looking to buy the ideal pieces for loved ones.
Is your closet ready for the rush? You do remember a little something called Black Friday, don’t you? Shoppers are looking for deals this year…without question. So not only do you want to ensure your Poshmark closet is looking amazing, but you also want to make sure that your prices are where they need to be. Savvy poshers know exactly what something should cost given condition and brand.
In this guide, we give you a quick rundown of tips and strategies for preparing your Poshmark closet for the holiday season.
How to Get Your Poshmark Closet Ready for the Holidays
What Gifts Are Hot
It’s pretty simple really. Pay attention to what people are buying for the holidays by way of gift giving. Certain items are going to be trending. Think in terms of what you can stock your closet with that aligns with popular buying patterns.
You also may want to consider those items that may be “easier” as far as purchasing for presents goes. That is to say, accessories tend to be easy gifts to give as people aren’t trying to have to figure out clothing sizes or style preferences. If you can find those NWT items, these also tend to be fairly sought after as holiday gifts.
Again, this year is going to look a little bit different come the holidays. And actually, shipping is going to be more in demand than ever before. You definitely want to account for this. Planning ahead when it comes to the logistics of shipping is going to be a lifesaver for poshers this year. Especially as far as gifts, people want their packages on time so they in turn can deliver them to the recipients on time.
And when you do ship out your holiday related items, or those clothing pieces purchased around the holidays, why not jazz it up a bit? Add a festive touch by way of a holiday card, holiday tissue paper or even a fun little gift as a bonus.
If a posher is in your closet shopping for one gift, who’s to say they wouldn’t buy more if the deal was right. Offering bundles through your Poshmark store and featuring them prominently could be a great way to attract attention and boost those sales numbers.
See what your buyers are liking and then share your bundle with them. Make them a deal that they simply cannot refuse this holiday season!
Look at Lower Offers
That is not to say you should be giving away clothes around the holidays. However, the end of the year is a great time to reevaluate your Poshmark offerings. Are there items that have seemingly been there forever? Maybe it is time to take a lower than desired offer on those pieces if you can still make at least some profit on them.
Be prudent of course about how you do this and what prices you agree to, but as they say, the end of the year is always a good time to “clean out your closet.”
The end of the year, the busy holiday times can be hectic…we get this. You’re dealing with work, family, holiday prepping and everything else on your already crowded plate. So why not give yourself a break and your Poshmark business a needed boost by enlisting help from experts who understand how to handle your closet come this time of year.
A virtual Poshmark assistant can help with shares, community shares and follows. It’s all about setting up a system and sticking to it, and let’s face it, for the average person it can become difficult to stick to it with any sort of regularity. But if you do in fact want to grow your Poshmark reseller business into something that frankly might pay for your holiday expenses for years to come, then getting help could be the way for you to make it big on the platform.
The holidays can be stressful, but they shouldn’t have to be. And selling on Poshmark in November and December can be quite profitable if done right. That means you need to plan, you need to be prepared and you need to understand how to maximize those end of the year sales. Your dreams can come true—that’s what holidays are all about to some extent…dreaming!
