What Level Up graduates say

Level Up has helped hundreds of sellers grow their Depop.  Here’s what they say about the program:

The Level Up Course is a highly valuable resource for Sellers! I am so glad the educational sessions are provided to us for free! Had I known about the inclusive community & realized how many of my selling questions would be answered, I would have applied to participate sooner. The workshop videos are comprehensive - covering all aspects of how to manage and market a Depop shop more effectively. The live sessions and community invite discussion and engaging interaction. I feel Level Up gave me the extra tools I needed to be a confident, informed, and prepared Seller.

Being in direct contact with members of Depop and fellow sellers was great for gaining and sharing advice. Since joining in January, I’ve surpassed my monthly targets every month and I quickly became a Top Seller.

I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to get involved with the Level Up Programme at Depop. It has offered me the most amazing advice and insight into running a successful shop, as well as giving me that extra push to stay consistent and meet targets. One of my favourite aspects of the programme was taking part in live sessions with top Depop sellers. Hearing about the growth of their shops really inspired me to keep working hard and push myself to take my shop to the next level, making sure I am always striving for improvement. I am continuing to work hard and see growth within my Depop shop, and with all the amazing knowledge I have gained from this programme I am super excited to see what will happen in the upcoming months!

Level Up was a great chance to learn more about selling on Depop! It helped me realise the things I was doing right, as well as some of the areas where I could improve. The people I worked with are amazing and I would highly recommend the programme for any seller looking to take that next step.

You know that feeling you get on the first day of school? Yeah this is that. Level up is here to help, but YOU have to be willing to climb. The Level Up program has reminded me that, It’s not where I’m at, it’s where I’m going. Listen! Learn! List! And most importantly take great pleasure.

The Level Up Program was incredibly useful to help me understand what I needed to do to take my Depop shop to the next level. Prior to the course, I had a basic grasp of how to use Depop, but after completing the curriculum, I now feel like I have all the tools I need to really grow my business. I particularly enjoyed the videos about optimizing listings and inventory sourcing, but all of the content was informative. The unit on photography was top-notch, rivalling my university's Intro to Photography course! I took plenty of notes throughout all of the lecture videos and live streams. It has been very inspiring to work alongside my peers and get a unique chance to network with Depop staff and Top Sellers.
