IMHO this is the correct approach, advocating the use ofa certian thing or
position by giving examples. The more companies and individuals use such an
approach the more it becomes entrenched in the minds of non users; 'hay there
is something too this "Leenucks" things...the guy at the end of them mall is
using it to run his business and saves mega bucks in operational costs'
(business to business conversation).
This is what moves people.....familiarity....as it becomes non threating....:)
