It’s confession time. When I sold my first few items online, I packaged them in Ziplock bags and recycled mailers before shipping them off. Stuffing would’ve been a better way to describe it. Forget about visual appeal. I only thought about keeping the items dry if the packages got wet.Thankfully, I’ve come a long way since then.
Just about everyone who has sold online has faced the dreaded sales slump. You know what I mean. No “cha-ching” notification of a sale or offer from eBay. No email from Poshmark saying, “Good news! Your item was purchased.” In fact, an item hasn’t left your hands in days. You wonder what’s going on.
Besides blogging, one of my favorite hobbies is to sell things online. A few months ago, I posted 5 Tips to Sell Clothes Online. If you haven’t read the post yet, check it out because the tips are foundational to success on Poshmark and on any other online marketplace. Since then, I’ve had several more tips on my mind and want to share them here today.
