How Poshmark Helped Build My Fitness Business

I have been using Poshmark for around five years now and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the app. Did you know that I used the earnings I made from March to September 2020 to start my business? Yes, what I earned during those months was enough for me to buy a year of my website and other basic start up costs (legal documents, insurance and photography).

Like many people in 2020, I found myself with some extra time on my hands. I started purging closets around the house, reorganizing rooms and creating sell/donate buckets. As someone that was not receiving a paycheck during most of 2020, I was able to supplement with selling my unworn/unused/no longer wanted apparel on Poshmark. It is probably no surprise that I am a little crazy with how I treat my clothes... thought so. I had a lot of "office" clothes that I had not worn in years, sold them. A lot of athleisure that I no longer like or just wasn't wearing anymore... sold them! Thankfully, people were shopping!

If you are not familiar with Poshmark, it is an app that started with apparel but has now expanded to home and electronic resale. Think eBay but a better lay out and more security. What I like about Poshmark is that they handle the shipping label part of the buying/selling process. There is no guess work when it comes to item weight and what it will cost. There are no surprises along the way of buying and selling. Their customer service is the best I have ever communicated with. I cannot say enough great things about the experience I have had using Poshmark.

Now I continue to use Poshmark to keep my filming wardrobe fresh, find unique items (reindeer leggings!), items that are no longer made but you love and cannot give up plus... to help fund buying more Balas. 😂

The hardest part of using Poshmark, is putting aside time to list items. Taking pics and writing a description can be time consuming but once you have a rhythm and find a method that works for you... it is so worth it in the end. Sometimes items can sell in minutes and sometimes they sell in months. If you have the space to keep your unwanted items for a little longer, it is worth it. Yes there is a listing fee when you sell an item on Poshmark, but for the service they provide and how well they provide it... I honestly think that peace of mind is worth it. Once you have made a sale, Poshmark allows you to either spend the earnings on the app, direct deposit in your bank account or a printed/mailed check. All great methods IMO!

We all have piles of items that we are no longer wearing or no longer fit us. Go turn that back pile into money so you can put the money to better use for you! For me that was creating my online business. What are you waiting for? Let's get Poshing!
