  1. 1. Persuasive Writing
  2. 2. What is persuasive writing?  Writing which convinces the someone to consume or purchase goods or services.  It tends to be a one-sided argument
  3. 3. What to include:  Repeat key ideas    Will help ideas stick in the consumers/listeners mind. E.g. how many fruits your smoothie includes. How many of your 5-a-day will the smoothie provide? Make your narrative personal   Use feelings   Using ‘I’ or ‘We’ sounds convincing and makes the listener feel like you are only speaking to them. Emotions can be used effectively to persuade people. How will drinking the smoothie make your consumer feel?
