Day 2 at PoshFest called for our fab attendees to get up-close and personal at workshops that were led by power Poshers and Team Posh! From learning the tips and trick to being a rockstar user to understanding why spreading the PoshLove is SO important, these intimate sessions definitely sparked the most ahh-mazing conversations.
"Spreading the PoshLove: How to Build Relationships That Matter"
Moderated by the lovely Lyann, Poshmark’s Director of Community, and our workshop speaker, Charis Gailard, this workshop had the entire room tearing up just a little bit as we shared our own personal stories on how relationships on the app have changed our lives. We learned that Poshmark not only connects us all as women across the country, but through generations of daughters and mothers using the app!

This hot topic had us all eyes and ears with our notebooks ready in hand! In a discussion led by Director of Marketplace Operations, Olivia Tam, power user and businesswoman Evelyne Teman shared her experience of creating a booming Posh empire, turning her garage into a merchandise warehouse and using the app to connect with customers all over the country.

Bubbly and bold power user and Community team member, Adiel Cloud, dug deep in her bag of tips and tricks to show our attendees how they can go above and beyond with their Posh etiquette! From using the handy USPS app to describing your item like a seasoned Posher, this workshop covered all Posh tips from A(pp) to Z!
Creating an awesome Covershot is always helpful in getting your item sold. Here are three different types of Covershots we’ve seen work well within the community!
1) The “I’m so lucky to have a photog help me” Covershot. If you’re fortunate enough to be this person, here’s our Posh Tip: Go outdoors! Lighting is so crucial to getting a good photo. Best time to take a pic outside? Not in the morning when it’s bright and the sun in your eyes. The best time is actually when the sun is just about to set. Below are some great examples of some users who’ve taken their Covershots outdoors.
2) Next, we have the “DIY Covershot.” This is when you don’t have a photog handy, but still want to have an eye-catching listing.
Posh Tip: Make sure you have decent lighting and be sure to angle your iPhone just enough so that you can get a good shot of what you’re trying to sell. Here are some great examples of some DIYs:
3) Lastly, the “Stylist Covershot”. This is when you want to do a listing, but don’t have the energy to put the item on. (C’mon, we’re all guilty of being a bit lazy sometimes!) We were hesitant about this type of Covershot at first, but we’ve seen some really awesome outfits put together, and guess what? Items sell! We’re finding that giving some style inspiration to the Covershot is super helpful to those shopping.
Posh Tip: Keep it simple. We find that when there are too many pieces in the Covershot, it can be distracting and actually take away from what you’re trying to highlight. Here are some great examples of some Stylist Covershots:
Stay tuned for next week’s post where we show you step by step how to take the perfect Covershot!
