The Difference Between Sharing to Followers and Editing Products on Poshmark

Should you "Share to followers" or "edit, update, list"?


So there have been a lot of talks about the effectiveness of using the "share to likers" button verses "edit, update, list" method of sharing your products on Poshmark. Some believe the later pushes your item farther up in Poshmark's algorithm, some think it has no effect. I going to do an experiment with my account to get a feel of how much of a difference there actually is.


I will be using only the "share to likers" method for one week. Then, I will use only the "edit, update, list" method for the next week. Each day for both weeks, I will share my entire closet five times.


My account stats the day before my experiment (January 9th, 2021):

  • 595 available listings

  • 71 likes received

  • 8 offers received

  • 1 sale

  • 3 people sent messages/comments

Overview:

Likes:

330 (share to followers), 218 (edit)

Offers:

16 (share to followers), 7 (edit)

Sales:

5 (share to followers), 4 (edit)


Final Thoughts:

I believe there has been yet another change to the algorithm. As the numbers above may suggest, the edit method isn't more effective than the share to followers method. I will continue using both methods daily since the algorithm can change again without me noticing however, I will be using the share to followers method much more often for now.



Thank you all for reading, hope this helps give you an idea of the difference!
