Using your voice to persuade

  1. 1. Strategies
  2. 2.  Analyze persuasive techniques  Brainstorm persuasiveness from your life  Apply principles to your writing
  3. 3.  Can you remember a time when you convinced some one to do something they may not have done without you? Perhaps your parents did something because you asked them to or a friend may have persuaded you to do something you would not normally have done.  Take a few minutes to brainstorm about a time like this in your life.  Share with your classmates.
  4. 4.  What can we see in common with our stories?  What methods work?  Offer something for what you want them to get or do  Offer to do something with the person  Lie to them…Make them feel like they’re part of a special group  Tit for tat…I will do this if you do that  Use guilt –guilt trip  Threaten  Tease them, nag them,  What methods do not work?  Threatening….
  5. 5.  1-Make them feel comfortable doing what it is you want them to do.  2-Provide them with good facts or argument  3-Use persuasive language/words  Bribery with something they like  Use big words they don’t know to make them feel stupid  Confuse them  Reverse psychology
  6. 6.  Tell them it is chocolate milk  Give them a lot of money  Tell them it is good for them  Offer to “drink” some and pretend to do so tell them mmmmm….that’s good.  Tell them every one is doing it…bandwagon  Mom said you had to
  7. 7.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y26IPHcdY2s  Analysis: What made you want to use Purell?  So, what worked?  The visuals, especially germs & stuff  Threat to your health-important to you  Cartoons  Maintaining good hygiene  The look of the product-easy to use and carry around  Using statistics
  8. 8.  Some of these methods work better when we see them and hear them like in a commercial.  Other methods work when we write.  Which methods will work for us when we write?  List:  Word choice  Use statistics  Appeal to the audience’s emotions
  9. 9.  What are your weaknesses?  How can you use weakness to persuade?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpZHFNGo5c Q&feature=related
  10. 10.  Sometimes persuasion can backfire because we are not aware of the audience’s personal limits…  Let’s see what happens when persuasion backfires…  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEZYdGDkkV4  Too cheesy-too happy, looked fake  No excitement at all-boring  The stain was not real  Too plain  Words were not effective  Not much color  Product was not sold to the audience  She could’ve pulled out a different shirt
  11. 11.  Make a list of things you would never buy from anyone.  Pair up  Try to persuade the other person to buy one of those things using your best persuasive tactics.  Go!
  12. 12.  Now that you have learned about persuasion, what works, what doesn’t work, and your audience…you can now persuade any one to do anything! Right?
