Summer Reading for B2B Marketers- 10 Must-Read Blogs to Get Back in the Zone

Author: Graham Gallivan

As we move towards the end of the dog days of summer, your marketing strategy shouldn’t cool down with the weather.

While your prospects may have been out on vacation throughout the summer, they’ll be back at their desks in no time. Or maybe you took some vacation days of your own and need a pick-me-up to get back in the zone. With summer coming to an end, you need to be on your A-game.

Here are a few of the top B2B marketing reads you may have missed from our blog this year. Read on for some of the hottest topics and trends you should be aware of to keep your marketing tactics fresh and on the mark:

SEO for B2B: 3 Reasons Why You Can’t Avoid It Anymore

Are you leveraging SEO to its greatest potential? If not, you’re not alone. But the hesitation that some B2B marketers face when it comes to SEO is the very reason that the brands that do use it have a strategic advantage (vs. the consumer marketing space where SEO competition is at its height). To get ahead of the competition, learn why SEO is one of your greatest strengths and how it can yield low hanging fruit you may be overlooking: 61% of B2B decision-makers start the decision-making process with a web search.

Dynamic Duo: Close More Deals with Sales and Marketing Alignment

Do you have what it takes to align with sales to close more deals? Businesses are 67% better at closing deals when sales and marketing are operating in lockstep, according to joint research by Marketo and Reachforce. One of the key strategies B2B marketers should leverage to increase productivity is lead scoring–ranking leads for their sales-readiness, sanctioned by service level agreements (SLAs) that are agreed upon by both sales and marketing. Read on for more on lead scoring and other tips to improve sales and marketing alignment.

4 Account-Based Marketing Lessons from the Field

While it’s not a new concept, one of the hottest trends in B2B marketing this year is account-based marketing (ABM). ABM is a strategic approach to lead generation in which your time and resources go into targeting a key group of specific accounts. Gone are the days of the broad-based marketing strategy as an end in and of itself.

While the traditional demand generation approach is great for generating and engaging a large number of qualified leads based on their attributes to move them further down the funnel and eventually close them, ABM is becomingly more critical for B2B marketers who want to win and retain certain key accounts. In fact, research shows that less than 1% of leads turn into revenue generating customers. Because of this, it’s time to evaluate the status quo and determine whether your time, budget, and resources should go into quality or quantity.

4. How to Unlock the Full Potential of Your Customer Base

Another key strategy for B2B marketers is customer base marketing. This all comes down to the math and two key stats. The first, also known as Pareto’s 80/20 rule, is that 80% of your business wealth will come from 20% of your customer base. The second is that it costs at least 10 times more to acquire new customers than to sell to the ones you already have, according to eMarketer.

With these stats in mind, the key is to think beyond acquisition and focus on increasing the customer lifetime value by marketing additional cross-sell products or services to an existing customer, working to keep them happy and keep them as a customer, and developing current customers into loyal brand advocates.

With the array of tactics and new technologies in the marketplace, it can be challenging to identify what strategy will work best for you. They key? Get scrappy! Regardless of your organization’s size, most digital marketing teams feel that they could use more budget and resources. The key to succeeding in this digital age is to learn how to do more with less, using key tactics like putting brains before your budget, being efficient and effective, and seeing ideas everywhere.

6. Power to the Publishers: Content Is Going Full Throttle

Power to the Publishers: Content Is Going Full Throttle

Chances are you’re probably using content in your B2B marketing efforts, but are you leveraging all the available channels to get the most out of your content? The fact is that buyers today are more informed than ever, self-directing the majority of their journey before they ever interact with you, so hitting them with the right content at the right time is key. At the same time, technology advancements are driving our content marketing efforts further, allowing us to distribute on more channels and measure our results. Take advantage of what’s available so your content can rise to the top.

5 Ways to Boost B2B Sales Through LinkedIn Social Selling

As a B2B marketer, you’re likely constantly looking for ways to arm your sales team to close more business. While your sales team may already be using LinkedIn to reach their prospects, there’s probably more they could be doing to take full advantage of the platform. In fact, LinkedIn even offers a Social Selling Index (SSI) to measure how effective your sales team is at tapping their network–factoring in the amount of content they share, their level of interaction, and the number of connections they have with your target audience.

8. Demystifying Social ROI in B2B Marketing

Demystifying Social ROI in B2B Marketing

Contrary to popular belief, you can attribute revenue dollars to your social media campaigns. But because they’re more likely to serve as a point of initial or incremental engagement than as a deal closer, your social campaigns require tangible metrics. Learn how to use (and integrate) the latest tools and tactics to calculate your social ROI.

More is Not Always More: Be Wary of the Volume Game in B2B Demand Generation

In demand generation, it’s not always a numbers game. Your organization needs to have a defined revenue model and business rules in place to ensure the best possible outcome. While it can be alluring to pump as many names into your database as possible, it’s even more important to make sure they’re vetted, giving your sales team the best chance for success. And once those leads become closed-won deals, make sure you’re analyzing your customer base to retain your customers and identify opportunities for growth–cross-selling and upselling them.

  11. Nancy B谩lor^Horrible quality print&#44 much smaller than shown in picture&#44 smells bad&#44 shipped from some bootleg merch seller in China.~3|i.p. freely^really nice t-shirt print was a little dark or wudda been 5 stars&#44 but what a nice fit and great quality soft comfy~4|annon^Horrible print. Blurry graphics&#44 very dark with the shirt color coming through the ink. Too small. Arrives from China. Not official licensed like the listing says. I would return it&#44 but I am not shipping it back to China. Save your cash folks. Its really a shame because it is a very cool design.~3|Mellisa Rose^Amazing print. This was for a friend and he loved it beyond words. Keep listing awesome band shirts! Thanks so much.~5|O. Garcia^It is defenitly not true to the sizing&#44 maybe a man’s Large at biggest or a small XL. Quality of cotton also not the best.~4|William Parks^feels good. runs a little small to U.S. size~4|Amazon Customer^Way too small. Apparently XXL means something different in China. Cool shirt but overall extremely disappointing~3|Wesley S.^rayon&#44 not cotton&#44 too small&#44 no return shipping~3|Amazon Customer^Horrible. Proportions to the body don’t even fit as one would expect a simple t-shirt to.~3|Jesse Vela^Good shirt and price. Shirt fits well~5|

  12. RIVEN^Absolutely really love it.~5|Dave Campbell^This shirt really looks great. Wore it with a skeleton outfit and everyone thought it was a unzipped jacket.~5|Tball^This shirt looks sharp. It has a great design on the back also.~5|McZaustria^Good quality and looks “bad to the bone”!Washed it surely 50 times and it hasen’t faded a bit.~5|Jeff Salava^Great shirt~4|

  13. Tate Reed^I bought this jersey/shorts outfit for the price. It has delivered so far. I ordered a US Large when I myself am a medium due to the reviews I had read. The jersey fit perfectly&#44 the shorts were a bit long. Not impossible to wear but a bit uncomfy where they end at the knee. The jersey is the best Jersey I’ve owned and I’ve owned a lot of cheap/affordable jerseys. The shorts were a bit uncomfy with the pad at first but after about a mile they felt just right! Comfort and style meet affordable. I would definitely order a size up just to be safe or order your size to get the right shorts and a tight jersey.(note) I have only wore these for 1 bike ride so far. Which was 20 miles. It was very comfortable during and after the ride.~4|jack jones^The padding in the shorts was not as thick as my Specialized shorts and the placement was not optimum for my size. The jersey did fit fine with the exception of a few loose threads I clipped off. I have only ridden in it once since it is not as comfortable as my initial pair of shorts. I wear it only when my other pants are not clean.The jersey’s zipper failed after a few rides coming lose from the bottom and jamming the zipper half way up the jersey. I won’t be buying this again.~3|Carlos^Jersey very nice and fit as described by vendor (please review size chart before buy&#44 size in jersey/pants is not US standards) size chart will provide equivalent US size. Used for a 100 mile bike ride and it was very confortable and cool. Pockets are very nice and easy to access. Shorts are nice (need more time for me to get use to them (reason I gave 4 of 5) but fit is good and material is nice. For the price this is a good buy. will buy more in the future.~4|tech junkie^Need to return the pants as they come up too high in the waist; seemed a bit baggy too so Small must run bigger than your typical S sizing. Both pieces feel like good quality but the shirt is also a little larger than expected. Adding a wicking layer underneath&#44 makes it snug enough not to be baggy and works for my northeast riding climate.~4|David J. Heinrich^This is a nice product&#44 especially considering the reasonable price. The 4 pockets in the back are useful and the padding inside the biking shorts definitely helps with the comfort of the ride. The top dries quickly and so do the shorts&#44 considering that there is padding inside of them.~5|Gmann^First Cycling outfit I had ever purchased. The fit was as expected. Very comfortable and no restrictions on movement. Back Jersey pockets are ample in size to hold a wallet&#44 Phone&#44 and energy bars for long ride. Short padding it more than adequate for over 2 hour ride. Felt very comfortable sitting the whole time. Ended up purchasing 2 additional outfits based on this size and fit. NOTE: I am not an avid cyclist&#44 but for novide this was very comfrotable~4|Robert L. Mata^The size doesn’t match normal size configurations…go one size up just to be safe…otherwise&#44 nice product. ..~4|Amazon Customer^nice outfit for the $$; I weigh around 206 got a XXL; fits a little loose&#44 but still looks good. I should have gone for XL; very nice product would buy again.~5|igrex^Awesome set. Looks great. Fit and quality is what I was looking for.~5|Alan kinnard^Sleeves are a little tight. Padding in the shorts is adaquite but still a little thin. Good value for the price.~4|

  14. Rob Smith^The Color of the logo is not White&#44 it is more like a beige and does not look that good on a Black background. For a shirt I’ve only worn once for the month I’ve had it I can say it is not worth the money. Plus Shipping times are longer than expected for shipment to the US~4|Amazon Customer^Design isnt the one in the photo. I mean it’s still obviously Flash buuuuttttt look at the photo… At least it’s comfy…(Design isn’t nearly as big as the photo either)~3|Meaghan Cordero^Looks great in person! Great gift!~5|AngelG^Ordered for my husband&#44 he is a xxl. And it fit just fine.~5|Roberts007^Good quality even after washing~5|SALTlife^Was a great shirt ordered a xl washed it once and It turned into a small. Can’t even wear it now.~3|GD^Shirt is made of heavy weight material. The material is more of a brownish black. Not True Dark Black like in listed photo. I really wanted to like this shirt because the Flash Chalk Logo is awesome&#44 but the material seems like it will fade quickly.~3|MNDI^Husband loves it and it came just in time for our costume party!~5|Elena^I wear this ALL the time. I love the chalk design and its been threw the washing lots of times. I’ve had it for a while now and it still looks&#44 and feels new.~5|SQ^Nice!~5|

  15. Casey Denney^The shirt in and of itself seems to be in great quality&#44 which totally is most important. The only issue with this item is that the sizes run SO large. My boyfriend wears a size L in mens&#44 and I purchased this and another shirt for him off of Amazon&#44 both larges. When I held this shirt up to the other Large shirt I ordered&#44 it was a whole 7 inches bigger than the standard L shirt. So&#44 a size L from this company/shirt style comes more like an XL or XXL. I am returning this in order to get the right size&#44 but I just wanted to warn everyone else out there so that you know what you may be getting.~4|SMOKIN' JOE^Exactly like the concert T I got at the 4/1/1977 LZ show* @ Dallas Convention Center as a young teen except the one in 1977 was black with white lettering(Med) and this one is a tie-dye black/ bluish color(XL) Haven’t washed it yet to see how it will hold up but looks awesome.*In 1976-77 Ticketmaster didn’t exist yet(in Dallas) and tickets for the show were $7.50-Balcony&#44 $8.50-Loge&#44 $9.50-Floor. People camped out for tickets and the line was nearly a mile long at the venue in downtown Dallas on a cold 15 degree November morning in 1976 when tickets went on sale. The concert itself was unbelievable… no opening act and LZ played for OVER 3 hours which was and is basically unheard of! The Dallas show was the 1st show of the famous 3 legged 1977 tour.~5|Irving Sabalsa^I got a medium and it fit perfect. It looks just like the picture and it is made from great material. I love it&#44 this shirts kicks ass.~5|Kelly^I’m really disappointed. I didn’t even get what I ordered.. It is like a silky material and it isn’t even tie dye. I was really excited for this too.~3|LMADAMS^I like it&#44 and have received several compliments on the coloring. The only problem I have with it is the fact that it seems narrower than a typical T-shirt. Maybe this wouldn’t be an issue for any guys wanting this shirt&#44 but since I am female&#44 it wasn’t as loose as I expected.~4|YOKO H^I love the design and the color. I wanted a loose shirt so I bought medium.I washed it n shrunk a bit but the hem is still longer than I expected&#44 so need to cut it out.~5|Meredith Lane^I’ve gotten so many compliments on this t-shirt! I even wore it to my business casual job with a sweater and a nice necklace (sort of an edgy look for casual Friday) and everyone loved it!~5|mmh3^Large was about 2″ too long for me. Fits my shoulders nice… just a bit long. Im short with broad shoulders. Very nice tshirt though&#44 large print&#44 as advertised.~4|Joe L. Ikesthepink^Good thick t-shirt. Should last 10 years easily. The graphics are great. Could have rocked this 30 years ago.~5|Emma^This is my favorite tee shirt. I love it. Good quality&#44 especially for the price.~5|

  16. 962589 691938Wow! This can be one particular with the most valuable blogs We have ever arrive across on this topic. Really Wonderful. Im also an expert in this subject so I can recognize your hard work. 998279

  17. Patrick Wickham^It a not a New World Order shirt&#44 it’s a “new world orde” shirt&#44 there’s isn’t an “r” at the end or what is supposed to be order&#44 also the whole logo isn’t white its really grey so it doesn’t even look like a real nWo shirt&#44 I feel ripped off but I should have looked at the picure closer~3|SHERRELLE SCALES^Ordered this for my husband&#44 ??. The “r” is missing from order. I guess you get what you pay for.~3|Salvatore R Marino^Very Disappointed. First of all it took over a month for me to receive the shirt. After opening the box i discover that the shirt was not what is described. The Shirt listed is black with WHITE lettering&#44 and the shirt i received was a black NWO shirt with Grey lettering. Felt that photo was misleading and deceiving. The shirt itself feels very cheap in fabric as well as too small for size. I recommend looking elsewhere if you want to purchase this classic tshirt.~4|Amazon Customer^I purchased this shirt. It says it’s a cotton t-shirt. It is not cotton. It is hard to read “New World Order”. The lettering also looks more like a faded gray than white. The shirt is not even close to a 3XL cotton shirt. If this polysester cheat knock off shirt were to fit me I’d probably need about a size 15XL. If the shirt fit me I would be a lot less upset as I could play “New World Orde” off as a faded worn down look. It just doesn’t even come close to fitting. I would like a refund.~3|tony^First of all its fakeThese idiots cant spell “order”&#44 they left the R offLogo is like half the size of the picThe white screen printing is so light that most of the black shows through and looks grayComplete joke and a total rip off~3|portknox50^Man I regret not going with the official shirt. This has to be the worst purchase I have ever done!1. It took a month to get a t shirt. Yes&#44 it’s shipped from Asia. Yes&#44 it was held by customs….but still…30 days2. As many have stated&#44 your R in the word “order” will not show.3.THIS IS NOT A COTTON T SHIRT. This is ..some cheap&#44plastic&#44 swimwear material! I opened the package and started laughing. It clearly is not what they advertised. SEE PHOTOS!Will be returning to..what looks like the Netherlands!..ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!???~3|Amazon Customer^Took forever to get it&#44 too small and the logo is on the back of the shirt. Id be more disappointed if I didnt decide to get another one from a better supplier after the first 2 shipping delay notifications. If I were buying this in person i wouldnt pay more than a $1.00 for it. knockoff flea market homeless guy with a printing machine type B.S. P.S. NWO 4 Life hope this saves someone else in the pack some stress.~3|Deebo^Read the reviews after I ordered the T-shirt and was scared that some of these negative feedbacks would be correct. But am happy to say that my shirt arrived exactly on time and fit perfectly. Don’t know what these people were talking about grey lettering cause mine came perfectly in white lettering Totally Love this shirt. I bought a XXl because I anticipate it to get a bit smaller after the first wash. However&#44 the material feels really good and am extremely happy with this purchase!~5|Horia Neagu^An amazing product. Great quality&#44 prompt shipping and the shirt fits as expected. The only downside is that if you wear the shirt outside&#44 you might get jumped by Sting and Goldberg. 5 stars / 5. nWo 4 life!~5|Bailey LeMay^Awesome shirt&#44 i live in Mass and every time i were it i get at least 2 or 3 compliments.~5|Raymond Hernandez^Trump 2020~5|David Hill^My son loved it~3|Cam Williamson^These shirts are PERFECT! Great printing and great fit~5|cspace^My grandson loves his shirt!~5|Amazon Customer^My son loved it and also the trump socks good job American made.~5|Amazon Customer^My order came very fast and t shirt was what I expected.~5|beth j roldan^Go Trump!!!!!!~5|Amazon Customer^perfection~5|Don Pope^Great shirts~5|

  18. Heather^I bought an XL buying a size larger hoping it would fit through my pregnancy&#44 but&#44 it won’t. It will fit great when I don’t have the baby belly anymore. So&#44 sizing up is a good idea. It doesn’t have much stretch to it. But it’s soft&#44 and it’s fun!~4|Dani^Loved it! Fit great but go one size up if you don’t want figure hugging :)~5|J Johnson^Fit as expected&#44 fabric is of good quality. Personally prefer to line-dry items such as this when laundered to reduce shrinking&#44 retain fit and preserve screen printing. That is a personal choice though. I believe it would tolerate dryer on a low or medium temp just fine.~5|Nicole Walker^I’m OBSESSED with SPN. I was a bit worried about the fit&#44 since the reviews on this said the shirt was way too small. I am usually a small-medium&#44 depending on the brand. I have a smaller chest and ordered a medium&#44 just in case. It fits wonderfully! It IS form fitting&#44 but that is expected for a ladies sized shirt. My new favorite!~5|JadedGiggles^Seems well made. Holding up to a teenager so far.~5|nikki^The shirt I got is NOT fitted…is is a women’s boxy old Gildan t-shirt…returning it because it looks awful on.~3|bonnie^This shirt needs to be ordered at least one size up. If you are long waisted or tall (I’m 5’8) be warned: this shirt is short&#44 it came above my belly button. The graphics are great though and the shirt is a nice thin material. I didn’t return it&#44 but its something I’ll never wear in public.~4|Julie S^This shirt fits perfectly! It’s also pretty long&#44 which I love. The artwork is exactly what I wanted. I am a huge fan of the show Supernatural&#44 so I couldn’t resist this shirt.It’s soft and well-made. They grey and black is attractive. I can’t wait to wear it to work tomorrow! I love it so much I’d order another one if I ever needed it.~5|Sugar^AWESOME !~5|Jeffory D. Patchen^The shirt might fit a toddler&#44 but not a woman~3|

  19. Joe^I have a hugeeeeee head I mean huge!!! This hat fits me well and is a large hat. I’m happy to find a hat that fit me!~5|Amazon Customer^This hat is just what I expected. I might consider buying a second one for my dad. Standard trucker hat with big marine emblem patch centered on the front panel&#44 it’s simple&#44 it’s great.~5|donna ennis^Great quality and perfect fit. My son loved it so much he ordered one for his friend who just graduated Marine bootcamp.~5|Amazon Customer^Very pleased~5|Customer^Excellent fit on very large head. And no aspect of this hat looks weird&#44 i.e is not a shallow beanie hat nor point atop front nor overly-trucker shape.~5|

  20. CyberCrone^I am sorry to rate this so poorly because it is well crafted and a much lovelier shade of cream than shown in the photo. However&#44 it is so small it is unwearable. Others have made this complaint 鈥?pay attention.~4|Amazon Customer^As indicated&#44 the “Kufi” is a little larger than I expected which made for a less that appealing look when worn. Additionally&#44 poor craftsmanship during manufacturing led to fraying along the edges after worn on only two occasions. Sadly&#44 my initial purchase was for 3 of these imitation Kufis. I have them but simply cannot wear any of them because they simply don’t fit and look awful. Buyer beware! After I while&#44 I began to ask myself what good are these “Kufi’s” or any head gear if it cannot be worn? Needless to say&#44 I will not be purchasing anymore of these items an neither should you. I finally contacted the seller regarding the return and complete refund for these items.~3|David Arroyo^Don’t let negative reviews spoil your purchase! The price is worth it&#44 at least for me since I can’t come across any place near me to purchase a kufi. This is made good quality&#44 fits perfect my head is 22inch/57cm. This is my favorite kufi I wear it everywhere. Will be purchasing more soon. Jazak Allahu Khayran~5|EJL Clinical and Behavioral Health^This product met all of my expectations&#44 and even surpassed them. The item epitomizes the meaning of true quality&#44 and I would definitely do business again!~5|RustyCrusty^Great single piece costume to go invisible in Muslim areasdoes not come with beard~5|AGK^A little warm to wear in the warmer season&#44 but the product is fine.~4|Leo A. McInnis^Excellent service. Would definitely recommend to others.~5|Amazon Customer^Great product~5|D.A.King^Alhamdulillah.~5|Amazon Customer^Great&#44 I love it&#44 little small but in stretches&#44 great quality for price&#44 protect head&#44 but stay cool~4|

  21. MMQ^Did my homework and checked everyones reviews on this brand (sponeed) of road jersey. The shorts fit perfect the jersey did as well. There is silicon elastic on the bottom of the jersey that holds it down fairly well while riding. The same silicon strip can be found on the inside if both the legs on the shorts. The material is sufficient and breathes well on the jersey and the shorts as well. The zipper is not metal like higher end jerseys but is plastic. I found I needed to work it a little just to get it to catch and zip up but its working and holding up so far. The chest area to me is just a tad loose and the neck is not tight like higher end road jerseys but once I got riding it didnt matter. The sleeves are a tad long and tight but thats fine I omly wish the neck was as tight as the arms. The shorts material feels like traditional bike shorts and the padded foam chamois holds up well for me. Keep in mind the max Ive taken these shorts on are 30 mile rides and they do what they are supposed to. If you find them uncomfortable invest in some chamois cream and give it a try. I always use it and have no pain or discomfort at all while riding in these shorts. I have bought another set of gear from sponeed and they are fine as well. In case your wondering my measurements are 34-35″ waist38-40″ chest 155 lbs. I order Large which is their Medium and fits me perfect. I hope this review helps and these jerseys are well worth the money. Item shipped on time and in good condition no complaints.~4|S. Olson^I really like them. I am 6’1″&#44 205 with a 35″ waist. Following the questions and answers and the size chart I should have been an xxxl. However&#44 that size was to big so I dropped to xxl and they fit pretty good. If I were to pick on anything it would be that the shorts are a bit too long for my liking. They go to the top of my knee and I would like them better if they were 2-3″ shorter&#44 but for the price I’m definitely not going to complain about that. Some of the colors/patterns are rather ugly&#44 but better to be seen.~5|Skip^I originally ordered and reviewed this when I had mistakenly ordered the wrong size. So the jersey I received was a bit small. After seeing the review Taylor from Sponeed contacted me to see if he could help. I explained that the jersey was tight but serviceable. he asked for my height and weight and said I needed the next larger size. He then told me that if I wouldn’t mind paying the $8.00 for shipping they would send me one free of any other charges and I could keep the one I had.It took us a few emails to get this done but Taylor stayed with me and we accomplished it. The new jersey fits great and is a quality jersey. It’s every bit as good as jerseys I’ve paid $80.00 or more for. Customer service like this is rare to find. I would like to thank Taylor for caring and helping. This is a great deal for shorts and a jersey. And one of the most caring sellers I’ve been in contact with. I’m impressed with the items I received and the service I received.~5|Amazon Customer^I recieved the goods&#44 the shorts are amazing for the price&#44 there was an issue with the zipper&#44 it was immediately addressed by the supplier&#44 and got a completely free replacement and keep the previous one as a gift. :DHighly recommended. it looks exactly like the picture.~5|Alexis E. Alfonso^Nice fit and it felt good on my 35 mile bike ride after my first wear.~5|Amazon Customer^This was my first time buying both a bicycle jersey and padded shorts&#44 and I couldn’t be happier with the product. Fits great&#44 looks awesome&#44 and performs well. I took the advice of other reviews to order a larger size and I’m glad I did. At at US biking store I would’ve fit in L shorts&#44 but I purchased the XXL shorts from Sponeed and it was great.~5|Brandon A Minnick^Great combo for the price. Fit me perfectly. I am 6’1″ and weigh 170’lbs. I am tall and pretty skinny. The XL Jersey fit perfect and the XL shorts were a tad big for my small legs but i think they shrank a bit in the dryer because now they fit perfect.~5|Amazon Customer^I liked the material of the product. Yet the size was just a bit small for me. I’m 6’2″ and about 230 lbs. I expected it to be slightly tight&#44 but that just motivates me to do more cycling&#44 so that I may loss weight.~4|Sean P. Stearns^Was a little worried how it would fit&#44 but overall it feels nice. I’m 6′ but have a very slim build so I got a large. The top is a little baggy but the shorts are really nice&#44 defiantly help for those longer rides.~4|DPLESQ^Why people spend hundreds (literally) on “kits” is beyond me. This gets the job done and looks good. Buy buy buy!~5|

  22. Kelly Stevenson^This picture is 100% fake! The item that you will receive is cheaply made. The sweatshirt itself is made with some crappy Halloween costume material and looks nothing like the sweatshirt pictured. The white iron on you see in this photo will also show up a dingy grey/purple. Pay the extra money and get your sweatshirts from the retailers not some crummy factory in China! Do not buy anything from this seller!~3|Jennifer Gilbert^Screen print was crooked!~3|

  23. HRae^Bought this for my son’s first birthday. Ordered a 18 month. Fits great. Planning for him to wear it for a while.~5|Mel C^It fit my son a pretty good&#44 however he is exactly 12 months. It may be a little small for a child close to 18 months. Very cute shirt&#44 would definitely buy again.~5|Lisa^I have a very tall new 4 year old but this shirt fit him great. I didn’t dry it before his birthday to be sure it wouldn’t shrink up but I have since and it only shrank a little. Super cute shirt and phrase that we received many compliments on.~5|Jbug^This shirt is so cute!!! My little guy wore it for his 1st birthday. It fit perfectly and after several wears/washes it is holding up great!~5|Kelli^It is SO soft. It looks adorable&#44 my son wore it on his birthday and also a few days since. No fading or letter cracking.~5|Labbye^Such a cute shirt! Very happy with this purchase!~5|Stella^I let my son wear this for his first birthday. He looked so cute. It’s pretty true to size so order standard.~5|Natashia^My son wore this at his first birthday. Fit perfectly and arrived quickly. It was a hit. We will have great memories in this shirt. Fits true to size. Thanks!~5|Ashleigh Blandin^Well made&#44 and adorable! I’d avise getting a size up so they can wear it more than once.~5|Russ^I ordered this shirt in a size 2…thinking 2t&#44 well it is about the size for 18 months. Not only that&#44 there is a STICKER OVER the actual size of the shirt. In my pic you can see the comparison between a normal 2t and their size 2 shirt. So disappointed! He can’t even wear it for his birthday tomorrow like I had hoped.~3|

  24. JS^I ordered the Fashion Suspender in Red and I am satisfied with this product. The seller shipped this item quickly and it arrived quickly and well-packaged. It is stretchy and easy to put in&#44 and it is adjustable as well. It is exactly what I was looking for to go along with my Misty costume. I wear a size small and this product stretched to fit without having to adjust it at all.~5|ThugWife4Life^I’m not a frequent suspender purchaser&#44 however&#44 I bought these for my husband and they seem great. Quality is decent&#44 doesn’t look or feel cheap and definitely can’t beat the price!~5|R Miko^Much too small compared to other suspenders.~4|Timothy D.^The clasps are junk. If you are handy with a multitool and looking for something cheap&#44 this is for you. Two of the clasps required about 20 minutes of foolery to get them to work.~4|MSU Engineer^The suspenders might be OK if just for fashion – and perhaps that was my mistake. I thought that I was buying something to hold my pants up. The clasps are Very light-weight and one popped off and others needed adjustment with a narrow nose pliers. On the other hand&#44 once I got them working they became functional.~3|JAY GREENBERG^They are very comfortable to wear and look stylish instead of wearing a belt~5|Brian James Fernandez^A little bit short&#44 they barely fit me and the narrow straps can be come uncomfortable after awhile. I’m 5’9″ 300lbs no room for adjustment unless I loss weight.~3|Madelyn E.^good for what we needed them for. not top quality~3|A. S.^These would be great for a costume but they are not high enough quality for regular use.~4|Robert M Gendler^The clips were so tight I ended up breaking them when trying to open them on the first use. So it basically broke before I ever got to wear the suspenders. They seem good overall but be careful with the clips.~3|
