    I did wonder that...

    A good marketing video will sell tonnes of seats (despite this one being free). Autodesk and C4d use similar techniques and it never fails to get users interested.

    Usually, the stuff they market doesn't quite work as well or swiftly as they may show/describe in their videos. But hey, that's marketing... That is a complete unknown at Newtek
