WTF is Poshmark?!

Poshmark is a social commerce marketplace that allows people in the USA to buy, sell, and trade new and used clothing, shoes, and accessories. Recently they just started selling other hard goods.

This is a different marketplace in that the best way to ramp up sales is to be social. If you just post a bunch of stuff and then expect that it will sell on it’s own oops so sad.

Zig Ziglar to the Rescue
That being said it is a great site to be on. The best sales people in the world are the most social. I like to use Zig Ziglar as an example. He was so social that he made instructional video and audio cassettes on how to be more social, more positive, more pleasant.

When I was a working at Radio Shack facing being fired because I could not sell a glass of water to the thirsty. The store manager took pity on me and lent me his Zig Ziglar audio Cassette tapes.

That’s Right Kids Pre Historic MP3s

I returned the following Monday right after school, ready to make some friends. I learned that people don’t buy items they want or need from people mindlessly repeating the dry facts that were printed in a brochure. People buy from people they like, people they can relate to, people they might say are a friend.

I had learned a lot from those tapes. They helped me to save my job. In my adventures as an adult I have observed that the sales people that are the most successful are the ones that are the most social.

Poshmark has combined the social element of Facebook with the sales platform like Mercari and have produced something completely original.

Launched in 2011

Just 9 short years ago this amazing platform was launched, by Manish Chandra, Tracy Sun, Gautam Golwala, Chetan Pungaliya. All the marketing Guru’s say if you want to be a huge internet success you must be original and Poshmark is definitely original.

OMG Not Social!!

Unfortunately I am not the most social person on the the planet. Sadly I am the type of person that is more comfortable with a computer than I am another person.

It has taken me way to long to start to understand how to be socialable on the internet. With a little help from some of my friends I post regularly on social platforms and am becomming a much better Posher because of it.

In case you were wondering the answer is yes I was one of those newbs clogging his social feeds with Poshmark listings. I have since learned a more subtle approach lol.

Stay tuned later in the week we will have tutorial videos 🙂
