And now I’ve finally co-hosted my first Poshmark Party!

Click here to see my 100 posted Host Picks I posted!

Co-hosting was a great experience. I discovered some really amazing closets and even more amazing people in the Poshmark Community.

The Party is 2 hours long and time flies by. You have to be organized if you want to post all your picks so I am very happy that I took the time to have a party-plan.

Fifty to one-hundred Host Picks are allowed. I would aim to post all one-hundred because there are thousands of amazing closets and items out there that should be showcased.

From reading various blogs and going through the process myself, I’ve collected my best tips so when you host, it will be a smashing success!!!

BEFORE THE PARTY

  • Clean up your closet – it will be highly visible
    • Best items near the top
    • Make a party listing with fun photos
      • Have it showcase the theme of the party and when it will be
      • This builds excitement and is a place for Poshers to comment, like & share
  • Use other social media platforms to promote (Insta/Blogs/Twitter/FB/Snap etc)
  • Find ~ 70-80% of your party picks before the day of the party
    • How you find them is up to you – PFFs, requests, your own searches for items you like that would best fit the theme of the party
  • Check that your picks come from Posh Compliant closets – time consuming, but important
  • Organize your potential party picks on a hidden Pinterest boards
    • Make boards called ‘Possible HPs’, ‘Definite HPs’, ‘Backup HPs
      • You will need Backup HPs – I guarantee – listings you have chosen do sell, become unavailable, or the user might suddenly start selling perfume (a banned item)
    • Make another hidden Pinterest board called ‘Posted HPs’ for during the party

 

DURING THE PARTY

  • Use at least 2 devices – e.g. computer and phone
    • I used my laptop to view the party room and pin my picks to my ‘Posted HPs’ Pinterest board
    • I used my phone to comment & share items to the party
  • Watch the clock!
    • If you want to post 100 picks, you have to aim for 25 posts per half hour.
      • Organize your breaks accordingly
      • This time will go by quickly – you will want to look at the Host Pick board, look at comments people are writing you, check last minute things about your picks – so allow for this in your time management plan
  • Keep track of what you post to the party by pinning to to a ‘Posted HPs’ Pinterest board
  •  Write a note under comments for each item you pick before you post it so the owner of the item knows that it is you who made the Host Pick
    • Pre-write the note, copy it, and paste it for each pick to save time
    • Share the item to the party right after you drop the comment/note
    • You will have time after the party to write personal comments to people if you like, but time is tight during the party
  • Decide if you want to make some spontaneous Host Picks during the party itself
    • You will get hundreds of notifications and comments from people suggesting their closets or items
    • If you are organized enough, it is fun to consider some of these for last minute picks – makes it very exciting for the active Poshmark users following the party feed!
  • Think about the order in which you post items to the party
    • What is posted later shows up first in the Host Pick gallery
    • Post your favorite items and your own items if you choose near the end of the party for visibility
    • Yes, you are allowed to post 5-10 of your own items and it is encouraged that you do so – especially if you need the exposure!

 

AFTER THE PARTY

  • Thank everyone, respond to notes, bookmark new closets you have discovered, relax!

 

I hope this is helpful!
