I'll answer this with another question:

Are you selling the idea because its contents, or because it will help 
you to profit in a near future?

You are doing evangelism when you *believe* in what you are talking. 
Otherwise, you are just *selling* something, just like any other businness.

for free software people, profit is just a collateral effect of 
evangelism... would you stop doing it if you dont have any profit?
