I do not think that there is anything that can be used to convince
people that will not be convinced :)
I've seen a lot of these "I need some proof to convince my
clients/boss/graphic designer/dentist that..." posts and I'm not sure
that there was ever a completely satisfactory answer.
As a (gasp!) consultant what I would probably do is prototype two to
three options and show them to said client/boss/etc and use these as
the basis for a sensible discussion. Prototyping may not be
fashionable any more in certain rareified circles but here on the
ground some of us still find uses for it every now and then.
