It is very common mistake to try to convince regular developers to
move to git. Such tactic will not succeed usually. Git does not have
any benefits for the developer who just do "svn co, svn up". Git's
benefits are in the Team Lead and Release Engineer scopes. You just
need to convince key persons to move to git. Other will thank you
later when central repo will crash or you will guide somebody over
series of "git blame, git bisect, git rebase or git filter-branch".

By the way there is very useful video for getting people know benefits
of git better.
