Looks interesting, but very difficult to read.  I am sure there is a way to make the whole thing bigger but I really don't have time to work it out.  Disappointed as this was the reason I joined up to read this article and see what Small business media was all about.

It may be a bit bigger if you click on the image but I still cannot read a lot of it! I tried printing it but it's still too small. Maybe okay if you have perfect eyesight but I don't and I am sure I'm not the only one.

I'd really like to be able to read this so is there any chance of being able to download it with bigger print please?

I agree with the comment that this is effectively illegible at any size - like reading through frosted glass.  Life's too short - it may be very clever, but I'll never know. Thanks for wasting my time businesszone and Flowtown - have a nice day...

Apologise to those of you who are having problems reading the infographic and I'm sorry if you feel that accessing this page has been a waste of your time. That was not our intention.

I have now linked the infographic to a much larger version. Click on the image above and the large version will open in another page. You may need to zoom in using your mouse. Hope that helps.
