Poshmark’s incredible growth over the years has forced sellers to rethink how they do what they do. Right off the bat, sellers (a.k.a. poshers) have to decide whether they want to sell as a hobby or as a legitimate business. Those who decide to go the business route then have to consider whether or not they want to a hire a Poshmark virtual assistant (VA).
Are you a posher? And if so, do you work with a Poshmark VA? Poshmark virtual assistants come in all flavors. They charge rates based on the services they provide. The question for any successful posher is whether or not they are getting their money’s worth from their VA.

VAs Almost a Necessity
These days, having a Poshmark Virtual Assistant is almost a necessity if a posher wants to turn selling on the platform into a full-time business. A VA’s most important task is to share the posher’s closet. And by the way, sharing once daily isn’t good enough. Successful poshers share their closets countless times every day.
That task alone shows just how important a reliable VA is. Without the services of a VA, a poshers could spend all day doing nothing but sharing. Hundreds of shares per day leaves little time for obtaining inventory, communicating with customers, and handling packing and shipping.
Different Levels of Service
In a generic sense, a virtual assistant is an administrative assistant who works remotely. Poshmark VAs are virtual assistants who specialize in helping clients make the most of the Poshmark platform. PoshyVA is one such company. They say that VAs offer different levels of service. Here are a few examples:
- Sharing Only – Some Poshmark virtual assistants only offer sharing services. Poshers pay a monthly subscription fee based on the number of shares they want. As a general rule, paid shares increase as a posher’s closet grows.
- Sharing & Admin – More advanced Poshmark VAs offer administrative functions along with sharing. They may do things like cross post, create draft listings, send offers, and so forth. These types of VAs often use a Poshmark bot to handle the sharing part.
- Sharing, Admin & SEO – Last but not least are those VAs who throw in SEO services. They do things like producing SEO-friendly titles and product descriptions. They use white hat SEO practices to help customers find a client’s closet by way of a search engine.
Poshers obviously spend more on VAs for every service they want in their packages. But paying for a particular service doesn’t necessarily mean a posher is getting their money’s worth.
The Proof Is in the Results
How do you know if you are getting your money’s worth from your Poshmark virtual assistant? Look at the results. If you are paying only for sharing services, it is fairly easy for you to tell if your VA is sharing your closet as frequently as promised. Whether or not those shares produce paying customers is another matter.
Sharing alone may not boost your sales if some of your other business practices are turning customers away. So when it comes to sharing only, your big concern is making sure that your closet is being shared frequently enough and at the right times throughout the day.
When it comes to admin and SEO services, they should boost your sales. If you are paying for those services and not seeing a difference in the bottom line, you might want to rethink things. It may be time to let your current Poshmark VA go and search for one with a better track record.
