I do love to share, "*Where and how else can your voice be heard thousands of times round the world by different people?*". I then show them few audio files I uploaded and placed as an audio pronunciation to the relevant articles, and show them the Page view statistics of that particular file. And believe me, collectively numbers are huge. Also I show them "Page view stats" of any of the images I uploaded on commons. This really works sometimes, it encourages participants to at least try out by doing simple yet effective tasks and shows them that its not even that difficult to contribute.
