Top 10 Persuasive Writing Techniques

Admit it. You write because you want to convince your readers to do something or agree with your point of view. Or maybe you want them to be inspired by your words, to apply your teachings and principles, to act on your ideas.

Don’t want to admit it? Okay. This is not an interrogation. I’ll move on then.

Persuasion is the ability to present a certain situation as being beneficial to both parties. You make someone an offer they can’t refuse. Not in a Godfather sense of the way though.

Yes, you need to work at making the other understand that a good deal is being offered.

Weird, right?

And, yes, there are techniques that can help you create a more compelling case.

Here are the ten best persuasive writing techniques.

Prepare for… WORLD DOMINATION!

1. Repetition

Because no one is listening the first time you say something. They’re just not paying attention. So you must say it a second time. And you think to yourself, now they got it. Odds are, no, they didn’t.

The third time you say it, that’s when they ask a question about what you just said, because they really didn’t hear you the first times.

The fourth time you say it, they think to themselves: “Well, this must be important, because it’s the second time he’s told me about it.”

Or so the legend goes.

The truth is that repetition is crucial. The trick is to deliver your point in several different ways, such as directly, using an example, by telling them a story, or utilizing a quote from someone famous.

2. Use the power of because

“Why?” you ask.

“Because I said so.”

Because is such a powerful word that people are more likely to comply with a request if you just give them a reason why… even if that reason makes no sense at all to them.

The idea is that we don’t like to be told to do things without an explanation.

We’re all rebels here, so when you need people to be receptive to your line of thinking, always give reasons why.

Why?

Because I said so.

3. Consistency

Consistency (also known as congruency) is an important trait to have. It is associated with integrity and rational behavior.

We want to be consistent, so we don’t like to have conflicting ideas or opinions.

When it comes to writing this translates to making your reader agree with something that cannot be denied, then add all sorts of evidence to support your case. Tie it all back to the opening idea that has already been accepted in order to make your readers agree with everything you wrote.

4. Social Proof

This is a concept I talk about when making my case against posting too often, especially on a young blog.

We’re constantly looking for guidance from others, but at the same time we want to make sure that the people we associate ourselves with have been “verified by others.”

Yeah, that’s the best term that I could come up with.

It’s why testimonials are so effective, or why a person who’s seen having a lot of friends makes others want to be friends with them too.

How do you use social proof in your writing?

Quote from a bunch of famous people, use studies, and so on. If others agree with what you’re writing, then odds are that your readers will too.

5. Comparisons

Metaphors, similes and analogies are the persuasive writer’s best friends. When your scenario relates to something that the reader already accepts as true, you stand a better chance at making them see things your way.

6. Fix a problem

Don’t we all have problems? Don’t we all want them fixed?

You just need to identify the problem, play a bit with your readers emotions, then offer them the solution to their problem.

This sounds like something straight out of a plan for world domination, but it’s not about being cruel, it’s more about empathy. You want your readers to understand that you feel them, you get what they’re going through because you’ve also dealt with this issue.

Your solution is only as good as your ability to show the reader that you can feel his pain and struggle.

7. Become a modern-day Nostradamus

No, I’m not kidding you. This is an actual persuasion technique. The idea is to provide your readers with a convincing glimpse of the future.

Take into account current events and then tell folks how it’s going to be.

If this sounds foolish to you, it’s not. The only issue is that if you have no idea what you’re talking about, then you will appear to be foolish to your readers.

Your prediction needs to make sense, to be convincing enough. You need to demonstrate that you know what you’re about, that you’ve given this some serious thought.

8. Unify … Selectively

Do you know when people best work together? When they have to fight against another group.

We function primarily in a mode of “us vs. them.” There has to be an outside group we are aware of to form an identity as a group.

Exclusive memberships work like that. As a matter of fact, I believe the word exclusive means that you’re apart of a special group. The best group.

You can study pretty much every successful leader in the way they chose their words as to create a group, and especially the words they used to define everyone else outside that group.

The more difficult it is to be a part of a group, the more you want to become a member.

For instance, the group made up of all the hundred something thousand people who follow this blog is the best group ever. Honestly. Every single day they make my day, make me smile and laugh, offer incredible insight into the world of art, books, blogging, writing. Great people!

9. Address Objections

There will always be someone who disagrees with a particular statement of yours. This happens every time you make a nuanced point, so it’s best to identify those moments and address potential objections, because…

Credibility, I guess.

Yeah. That one.

It also means that you know what you’re writing about.

Storytelling

Storytelling is the wonder weapon: you can and should use it in combination with any and all of the previous nine techniques. Storytelling works so well because it allows people to persuade themselves, and that’s what it’s really all about.

Truth be told, we never convince anyone of anything — we just offer to help them decide we’re right. If you’re a great storyteller, then you can pretty much make people do whatever you want.

Including WORLD DOMINATION!

Super Jacker – How To Use Authority Contents Legally From Hijacking Sites

1

One of the biggest problems people just starting their online business have is that they do not have any content. But its actually even worse than that, because while anyone can create content, new people still do not have the most important ingredient.

Authority is the single most important thing no matter what niche your in. If you have authority people will listen to you, they will care about what you say, they will opt in to your email list and they will buy your products. If you do not, they won’t, and you have a long hard road ahead of you.

Super Jacker will work in any niche, and with any monetization type however its ideally suited for List Building, CPA and Affiliate Offers. With With Super Jacker you can get instant content and instant authority in any niche by ‘jacking’ other peoples pages and using them to make sales and get leads at the push of a few buttons

My Slides” Section

In this section, here is actually where you build your Call-To-Actions (CTA) slides that you are going to put to other people’s websites. Just create a new slide, provide it with a name then press ok. After that just press edit to proceed to the editor.

Here you can see the system that is fully drag and drop. In order to add an element into the slide, you just need to grab the element widget then drag it into the canvas (slide). Each element has its own option that is specific to that element.

Once you have already built the slide according to the way you want, just click “Save and Exit” then you will return to the “My Slide Section”

My Jacks” Section

In this section is where you actually “hijack” other people’s websites. If you still have not created any jacks, simply create one like the one in the “My Slides” section, then hit the edit button to continue with the set up.

Once you’re in the editor, the process is actually very simple. Just follow the steps below to complete the process

Now you can see from the example that it’s actually showing me the Buzzfeed website, then right on cue, it will show the call-to-action slide that I created as well, with the timer and the CTA button.

Also, take note that if I share this site on social media like facebook, it will look just like Buzzfeed – it’s going to have the Buzzfeed properties such as the meta tags, the logo, the featured image, basically it will going to look just like Buzzfeed!

Below is the comparison between the link from Super Jacker and the actual link from Buzzfeed when posted on the Facebook timeline

With this product, you can hijack almost any other websites and leverage on its authority that you can use for your own marketing campaigns to build your list, promote products, and potentially make sales.
