Why Your Items Aren’t Flying Off the Shelves
1. Your Items Lack Demand
- Ensuring consistent sales on Poshmark hinges on having desirable, sought-after inventory. Ask yourself: Is your sourcing strategy grounded in research, facts, and data? Or do you base your buying decisions on gut feelings or personal preferences? Relying on intuition and emotions in reselling is a recipe for risk.
- To determine an item’s worth, consider factors like its release date (current vs. outdated), brand tag sophistication, and adherence to current fashion trends.
- Researching brand websites, following fashion influencers, and using platforms like Pinterest can provide insights into trending styles.
2. Your Pricing Strategy Is Inconsistent
- Your pricing should reflect the current resale market value of your item. Overpricing can deter potential buyers, while underpricing might raise suspicion.
- Competitive pricing is essential, but this doesn’t mean having the lowest prices; it means offering fair value.
3. You Rely Blindly on Other Sellers’ BOLO Brands
- “Be On the Lookout” brands can be valuable, but it’s essential to understand why they’re desirable and which items within those brands hold value.
4. You’re Focusing on Ineffective Tasks
- Sharing to parties, following other sellers, and trying to gain followers might not yield significant results. Focus your energy on actions that drive sales.
What You Should Prioritize Instead
1. Consistently Share Your Own Closet
- While sharing to parties and other sellers’ closets might have limited benefits, sharing your own listings remains crucial for attracting potential buyers. Consider using automation tools to streamline this process.
2. Clear Out Stale Inventory with Irresistible Offers
- Offer substantial discounts (50-70% off) to encourage buyers to make a purchase and clear out stagnant inventory. Don’t hesitate to accept reasonable offers promptly.
3. List Fresh and Desirable Inventory
- List new inventory consistently, focusing on sought-after items to attract potential buyers who browse the “Just In” section.

The key to success on Poshmark lies in resilience and adaptability. Channel your energy into optimism, and your brain will be more receptive to solutions. Armed with this knowledge, you’re better equipped to revitalize your Poshmark sales. Remember, I’m rooting for your success!
