Are Poshmark followers real?

Like on some other resale platforms, on Poshmark you can also follow other buyers and sellers. So, this also means that others can follow your Poshmark account. But are these followers real? And what is the point of following other people's accounts?

Why follow other accounts on Poshmark?

There are several reasons for following other users on Poshmark. First of all, it can be useful if you like someone's style or items. When you follow someone, you can find them more easily and find out if they offer something new on their account. Users also follow each other in the hope that others will follow them back and might buy one of their items as a result. People have different reasons for following each other, which is why it’s not without reason that this option is there on this platform.

Does having more followers mean more sales?

The answer to the above question is a simple 'no'. Having more followers on Poshmark doesn’t automatically mean you sell more items. This is because buyers generally don't care at all how many followers you have. People are looking for items they like and in this regard, the number of followers of an account doesn’t matter at all. Sometimes having a lot of followers means that a lot of people like your style, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that you sell a lot more than someone with fewer followers.

Are all followers on Poshmark real?

Of course, many followers on Poshmark are genuine. These people simply like your style and enjoy following you. However, there are also fake followers on Poshmark. This is because some people buy their followers. These are not only fake followers, but also fake customers. When followers are bought, these are almost always fake accounts, and these will never buy anything from you. As we mentioned earlier, having a lot of followers doesn’t automatically mean you sell more. So again, there is no advantage to buying followers.

How to get real followers?

Would you still like a lot of followers, but real customers? Then there are a few things you can do to get real followers. First of all, you can share other people's items. When you do this a lot, you will find that people will start following you. This is because when you help other people, they will be more willing to follow you.

Furthermore, you can also choose to become a Posh Ambassador. When you do this, Poshmark throws targeted followers at you, as it were. If you want to become a Posh Ambassador, some things will be expected of you. For instance, you will have to have a good reputation, which means adhering to community guidelines and terms of service. You’ll also have to provide good customer service and keep an active closet. There are a number of conditions you have to meet as well. If you meet these, you can become a Posh Ambassador, and this brings several benefits. For instance, you will be recommended to new Poshmark users, receive an exclusive newsletter and get access to several fun programs and opportunities. The biggest advantage, of course, is that you can easily expand your follower base.
