I actually can't tell one way or the other. What DID impact is Poshmark charging marketplace sales tax, but they're coming back from that. I have about 200-225 things on offer at all times. I figure it must help because one is reaching a larger pool. I joined in August 2018 but didn't start selling there until almost 2019 and I'm actually not a huge sharer - it's just been persistence so it adds up.
I have 50K now, and I'm only following 28K. I tried to always follow anyone who was following me, but I got behind and now can't get caught up. I don't see 22K that I'm not following when I look for the ones I'm not following among the ones who are following me. My sales on PM are not very good though. I think my price points are too high so I don't get the sales. I do send offers a lot, but still crickets.
I noticed that too Denise- I decided to start following newbies but the first few ALL seemed to have only a single LV handbag listed, which felt fishy to me so I changed my mind.
I haven't been listed much on Posh recently but have continued to increase my followers over the past year- I should hit 110,000 followers by Christmas. My plan is to start listing again after New Years so I figure more followers can't hurt, lol.
I don't share my stuff since I don't have the time. But I do like the new share to followers for the parties. That is pretty fast, especially on my iPad.
When I get a sale, I check out the buyer's notes and am amazed at how many sellers write to the newbies to try to convince them to check out their closets. And I have never seen a case where the newbie bought from any of them...just like I never did.
So they must spend a ton of time weeding through all of the newbies to find the real ones???
I never do that, though recall when I was a newbie people doing that to me. I didn't mind, we've got to hustle, but I don't do it because I agree with you, I'm not sure how effective it is. I mostly follow the newbies without closets.
