  4. Seriously, who is that at number 5? Cudd Blowouts Firefighting Well Control?
    Yes, definitely one of Australia’s preeminent online retail brands there.

    Pretty graphic, wouldn’t go banking on the details.

  8. There is a very large discrepancy between what is reported on the SmartCompany website and what is represented here.

  10. Top 10 retailers “as chosen by Smart Company”. NOT the top 10 retailers of Australia by reach, sales, visits, transactions, or indeed, value. Rather an important point.

  12. I can see why Cudd is nailing it – so easy to buy from.

  14. What on earth is the infatuation with you internet kiddies and infographics?

    Seriously, I understand. 96.2% of EVERYTHING comes from the internet. The 3.8% that doesn’t will coming from the internet in the next 12 months.

    And anyone who doesn’t agree with that is an idiot, completely deserving of rolling your eyes at.

    Clarified for ‘yall.

  16. This is hilarious. Damien: please go to the top of the class.

    Mumbrella: you should be as ashamed for posting this as whichever social media charlatan produced it.

    Conclusive proof that 98.7% of infographics are based on absolute nonsense.

  22. Oh yeah – brandsexclusive? Data I’ve got wouldn’t have them there. Same goes for Harvey Norman.

    Actually, the whole lot wouldn’t be.

  24. A simple google insights for search query with those ‘top 10’ retailers demonstrates the weakness of the data. A joke
