When’s the last time that you shopped a sale? Maybe it was Target’s swimsuit sale or American Eagle’s sale on denim. It feels good to save money, and the same goes for shopping on Poshmark. If you’re thinking about having a sale of your own but don’t know if it’s the right time, this post is for you. While you don’t need a specific reason to run a Poshmark sale, there are definitely perks for the buyer and the seller.
One of the major perks of selling on Poshmark is that no one controls your pricing. You can list an item for as high or low as you’d like, and you can also have sales whenever your little heart desires. But that also means that you need to make a lot of decisions in your business — like if and when to run a sale.
Sales are enticing. It makes people want to shop. Just think about the last time you got an email saying that one of your favorite brands was having a sale. There’s a good chance that you click through to see what the deals are. It feels like this sale was made for you and connects you to the shop. That’s what happens on Poshmark as well.
While it does take a little extra work, having a sale is just as much of a perk for the seller as it is the buyer. Here are three reasons that you should consider having a Poshmark sale.
1. Have a Poshmark sale if you’ve had a slow sales month.
Now, don’t get carried away here. You can have a sale every month and expect people to always get excited and want to shop. You have to be strategic. But if you’re having an unusually slow sales month, this could be the perfect time to experiment with a Poshmark sale.
Because you can control what the sale looks like, you can control how much money you’re bringing in off of each sale. For example, if you’re running a 2 for $25 Poshmark sale, then you know you’ll be making $20 off of each order. Sell to five people and that’s an extra $100 for the month. It’s guaranteed money each time for you and a really great price for the shopper — it’s a win-win!
2. Have a Poshmark sale to bring new eyes to your page.
It is up to you to market your Poshmark page, which means it’s also up to your to bring people to your page. A sale is a great way to do that. When people see that you’re having a sale, they’re coming to your page. If you’ve done your job right, they’ll love your listings and probably give you a follow.
That follow is important because it means that your items will now show up in that person’s feed. While followers aren’t the most important part of your Poshmark, more eyes on your page means more possible sales for you. So even if that person doesn’t buy anything from your sale, you’re still getting potential customers in the future.
3. Have a Poshmark sale if you’re running out of room for inventory.
Running out of bins to store your items on Poshmark? Get those items out the door by having a Poshmark sale. It’s really as simple as that. You can wait around forever for people to buy items for full-price or they’ll never leave your house. You want to make people want to buy your items. A Poshmark sale is a great way to do that.
A great way to do this is to offer a certain number of items for a certain price. That way, you know that you’re getting at least two or three items out ever time someone shops the sale. You get to make money on your Poshmark items and get them out of the house all at the same time. Not to mention that people also get a great deal. It’s another win-win!
If you’re anything like me, you’re a bit nervous to have your first sale. But honestly, the worst thing that can happen when having a sale is that no one buys anything. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t make a sale. It’s better to try than to constantly wonder what would happen if you did. On the flip side, the best thing that could happen is a mountain full of sales.
