Poshmark Tips & Tricks 2021- Tips 5-8 out of 8
When you see all of the sellers on poshmark that seem to be powerhouses, be aware 99% of them have a virtual assistant (some have two) that are working behind the curtain building that business.
What is a Virtual Assistant for Online Resellers and why do you need one and what about all the “talk” about them?
A Virtual Assistant for the online reseller is similar to any administrative or technical virtual assistant, except that they are more geared towards building your online selling business and have the experience from the selling platforms such as poshmark, mercari, depop and ebay.
They can perform many different tasks based on a couple of factors.
1.) What selling platform are you currently using?
A Poshmark Virtual Assistant performs tasks such as daily self sharing by human assistants and not bots, community sharing of other poshmark seller closets in order to promote goodwill and congeniality. Additionally they can perform something called “targeted following” which means that they will analyze the top brands you sell in your closet and then they seek out and find the poshmark users that follow those brands on the app and they follow them in an attempt to expand your closets visibility and exposure in order to make sales to brand loyal audiences. You can also rely on poshmark virtual assistants to create new listings for your based on the photos that you share with them and the price point information you provide. After creating an original closet listing for you, they can then, without using automation programs cross post each of your closet items to other selling platforms to grow your business across all platforms, doing this guarantees that you will make more money.
Ebay and Mercari virtual assistants we also offer these services as well, create, manage and track sales and data from these sites to provide a better outlook on trending items in your business as well as the tasks listed above such as creating new content and listings in your online stores and also cross posting listings from ebay to all platforms.
Online Selling Data Analyzing Assistant. These assistants take the data from your poshmark reports and analyze not just the numbers, but also take a hard look at your closet and assist you in creating a strong closet presence that will allow you to attract your ideal buyers and repeat customers.
When considering hiring a Virtual Assistant for your poshmark or other online selling business what should you be careful of or be leary of?
1. ) If it seems too good to be true, it most likely is. A lot of buzz is going around that is hurting the virtual assistant world for online sellers, while this hurts the VA world, it hurts the online seller world more, because every GOOD business owner that is successful knows that without a doubt the key to growing a business and making MORE MONEY is ALWAYS hiring help to do that. Micromanaging never made any real business owner successful, and you will not be the first small business owner to succeed by thinking that you can do everything. It sounds great in theory but then the real world smacks that thought down and you end up getting burned out or imposter syndrome. Watching large sellers on instagram or reading their posts on facebook may inspire you, but let them inspire you, not manipulate you or hold you down with their theories and words. Your business is YOUR BUSINESS and their business is theirs. There is nothing easy about being successful as an online seller, it is hard work, you in the beginning will make far less than minimum wage but as you allow yourself to get out of your own way and hire an assistant to ASSIST you then you will grow and sustain and that is what you are trying to do, build the business YOU dream of, not the business some person you have never met or maybe met at a posh event mold or manipulate your world. The only person making the choices in your business, is the one paying the bills at the end of the day. YOU or your partner or your parents even, but it is not someone trying to guilt or scare you into making moves to make more money and grow larger……..larger than they are even if you put your mind to it you can do it.
2.) It may sound good to hire someone from an overseas gig service, but remember that sick feeling you had when just the thought of giving your personal information out had you scared, well now you are sending your businesses confidential information across the world and who knows what they will do. Not to mention when you hire from overseas gig workers, you are taking away from U.S. workers that need this side gig in our country. Virtual Assistants for online sellers are paid per click (no they are not paid minimum wage, they are not paid by the hour or by the day they are paid by the click of the mouse button and this is not meant to be their sole source of income. You may ask yourself why would someone work for less ? Well, because most of them are using this to supplement their families incomes or their social security or they just simply do it to be able to build an annual Christmas account or a college fund for their kids that they can build. They are working from home in their PJ’s, they are feeding their babies while sharing for you, they are sharing your closet while working their online telephone customer support jobs so they are multi tasking and this is supplementing the full time money they are making while taking reservations for rental cars, or booking hotel rooms, some of them are sharing while they are rocking their baby to sleep……...none of these things could be done if they were forced to waste money driving to a minimum wage job (some states minimum wage is only 7.35 an hour BEFORE taxes which is 6.06 an hour after taxes, add in child care costs, and you are already negative, not to mention the gas it takes to get them to work, the parking costs for some, clothing and upkeep because they are not wearing pajamas to a regular job, insurance on their vehicle or bus/train fare all of those factors and ANY regular minimum wage job they are a couple hundred in the negative, these pay per click jobs, they are home while their children are doing virtual homeschool in the new normal. They are keeping themselves and their families safe from COVID by staying safe and staying home and still earning money to help their household budgets. Some people that cannot figure that out are usually people that have never had to choose between childcare and feeding said child, nor having to worry about childcare costs while also worrying about how many miles they have to walk to work in the cold because they couldn’t afford a bus pass or train card or car and car insurance and gas and parking because they knew after all of the costs just to get to the job meant they couldn’t pay a sitter or daycare center or after hours child care center. We solve this issue with pay per click side gigs for them that allows them to not have to experience these costs while working from the comfort of their homes and allowing them to do OTHER work from home jobs as well. Including having their own online selling businesses like on ebay and mercari that are less work for them and they still generate income from that.
So the next time you hear someone say that theres no way ANYONE would work for XXX a month or a week…….ask yourself as a reseller how much you make PER HOUR when you break down ALL of your overhead of transportation to and from sourcing spots, prepping your new inventory, inspecting every item, washing and steaming items, researching comps on pricing, photographing each item and all the detail on that item, then creating the content for each item and listing it and then sharing it 3 or 4 or 5 times a day in full or more if you want to make good money on the app, so say you spend 6 hours a day or 8 hours a day on the poshmark app after all the above mentioned tasks, then you add in what you ACTUALLY spend, the average poshmark seller admits to spending atleast 13 hours a day 7 days a week on the app. The number reaches 18 hours on busy holidays or days where they engage more. (126 hours a week of work to make MINIMUM WAGE in the lowest paying state in the country you would NEED to clear 926.10 PER WEEK on the poshmark app in order to clear minimum wage and 1,890 dollars PER WEEK for the states that have minimum wage of 15.00 per hour. Are you making that ? If you are not CLEARING that after expenses and overhead, you are making less than minimum wage and according to the “influencers” that tell you that there is no way someone would work for less than minimum wage XXX amount of hours a day …….they are also indirectly talking about you as well because you are working 126 hours a week and if say you make 100.00 a day AFTER expenses that is 700.00 a week (which most poshers DO NOT sell 100.00 a day everyday 365 days a year) Now even at 100.00 a day in NET Sales, you are now making 5 bucks an hour…….and the less in sales you make a week that number goes down. Poshmark themselves will tell you that per their data they expect that the average poshmark seller will make 500.00 PER YEAR that is the equivalent to 1.36 a DAY, or 9.52 a WEEK. So the next time you hear someone speaking poorly or negatively about virtual assistants that are making so little realize that the average reseller on selling platforms make less, but still you DO THIS and with the help of our virtual assistant team, you will MAKE MORE MONEY you will make MORE SALES and you will continue to grow so that you can also be a top seller and a top earner and you can be a positive influence on other new sellers and show them how you did it.
