5 Keys to Awesome Listings | POSHMARK Listing Tips


[Music] five keys to creating an awesome listing
for Poshmark hi and welcome to Vynes Apparel in this video I’ll be discussing
the importance of creating listings that draw the buyer in to provide more
opportunities for sales shares and follows creating impressive listings is
a vital part of your Poshmark success yes sharing and following plays a major
role but if your listings aren’t up to par you can share and follow as much as
you want to and be left with the question of why you aren’t making any
sales or getting likes and follows there are 5 key factors to creating an awesome
listing your images the title the description filter details and the price
some of these factors may seem more important to some than others but all of
these factors are essential to having the best listings possible number 1 your
images I want to start off by saying that you don’t have to be a photography
guru to create quality photos sure it would help but that’s not quite what this is
about the key factors of a great photo for your listing is clarity light angle
minor distractions and minimal post editing eye catching photos are clear
bright simple and look realistic fun artistic abstract photos are okay in
most settings but here less is more the ultimate goal here is to get your item
sold the easiest way to do that is to ensure that the customer can see your
item in its best light pun intended when taking your photos use sufficient
lighting and simple background settings adding your personality to your photos
is highly highly encouraged but if you have not practiced lighting techniques
and you have a whole outfit laid out on top of the item you’re selling you’ll
pretty much have a jumbled mess you’ll also want to pump the brakes or major
editing techniques editing for clarity lighting and background removal is fine
but edits that involve changing the whole concept of the item is a bit much
and it’s more like false advertising than anything else while I’m on this
topic I want to send a shout-out to my PFS that bought for me when I first
started my pictures aren’t all that perfect now but once upon a time they
were hideous I’m so thankful that they took a chance and bought for me yikes
number two your title your title should lead the customer right to your listing
what I mean by this is list your item as if it were being typed into a search
engine enter as much detail as the characters will allow your title should
be telling the customer exactly what they’re buying if you didn’t know when
searching on Google using the shop option for example listings that include
the same keywords and characters as the buyers search will populate in the
search results making it easier for your listings to be found whether the
potential buyer is a member of Poshmark or not number three the description when
writing your item description ensure that you include as much detail as
possible list fabric measurements and color for apparel and dimensions what it’s
made of like plastic metal or wood for home goods you’ll also want to add notes
regarding the condition like if it’s nearly new slightly faded chipped or
dented or for apparel how the item is sized like if it runs small or large I
haven’t personally done this lately but it’s also a cool idea to add catchy
narrative to your description some Poshers are really good about painting
a visual picture in their descriptions causing the customer to be drawn even
more to the item they already like this is a quick overview of the description
details that should be in your listing but if you would like to learn more
about writing an awesome description check out my video how to write an
awesome item description number for the filter details when searching for items
you can filter the search results by type category brand
size price condition and availability when creating your listing be sure to
include as much filter detail as possible to allow your items to be found
easier when selecting the category if the subcategory doesn’t list the type of
item you’re selling try to choose something that is as close to the
subcategory as possible if your item doesn’t fall into a subcategory you may
have to leave this blank to ensure that your item isn’t misrepresented I don’t
think I have to get into details of entering
the quantity but here you’re simply entering the amount of the item that you
have if you have multiple pieces of the same item use the multi item option to
select the applicable sizing choices select the size of your item by entering
the size listed on the tag if the item runs small but the item is listed as an
extra-large on the tag include this information in your description not the
size next will be the item condition whether it’s new with tag used or
boutique when completing this portion be honest about the current status of the
item if you consider something new but it’s never been used but the tag was
removed it is no longer considered new with tag it is now used if you’re not
sure what’s considered new with tags Posh’s new with tag policy states an
item is new with tag if it is brand new unused and has all of its original tags
attached all original packaging box dust bag authenticity tags etc should be
included with your item if applicable items that are new without tag and
original packaging are not considered to be new with tag the brand field is a
drop down menu of possible choices that will populate as you type if your brand
is not listed you can enter it manually for the color enter the most dominant
colors for the item for example if you were selling this shirt you would list
red and blue as the dominant colors number 5 your pricing when pricing your
items sell high enough to make a profit but low enough to make it worth – the
buyers time you should never charge full retail on Poshmark it’s not what this
market is for and you can lose a lot of traction if your prices are too
expensive on the flip side of that you can also lose traction if your prices
are too low the best rule of thumb is to search for the item you’re listing in
the Poshmark app to see comparable listings pay
attention to the pricing of the item based on the condition if someone is
selling a new scarf for $20 and you have the exact same scarf that you wore once
it’s not feasible for you to sell yours for $25 creating an awesome listing can
be a make-or-break factor for sales listings with as much information
as possible not only do better on Poshmark
they can be seen via other media platforms opening the door for a whole
new set of buyers if you’re truly serious about your Poshmark success you
have to be serious about the amount of detail you’re putting into your listings
I hope this video has been helpful informative and serves as a tool that
will help you reach Poshmark success and as always have fun explore the community
create connections and make some money Happy Poshing!
