What Are Persuasive Techniques?
Persuasive techniques are strengths or methods used to influence and convince an audience to adopt a particular viewpoint, take a specific action, or believe in a certain idea. These techniques are often used in persuasive writing, speeches, advertisements, and other forms of communication.
Examples of Persuasive Techniques
In this poster set for the classroom, the following examples of persuasive techniques are covered:
- Alliteration – the repetition of the same or similar kinds of sounds at the beginning of the words or in stressed syllables.
- Rhetorical questions – are asked just for effect or to emphasise a point. Directly answering the questions is not expected.
- Exaggeration – used when giving information that is inflated or over the top. Exaggerating information can help to emphasise the point being argued.
- Statistics – used to support the argument with real-life figures from relevant studies. They provide convincing evidence.
- Emotive language – used to make the reader feel certain emotions, such as sadness or excitement.
- Modality – used to indicate the degree to which something is certain, possible or improbable.
- Repetition – used when important words or phrases are repeated so that they stick in the reader’s mind.
- Facts – pieces of information that are used to back up an argument.
- Opinion – used to get the writer’s thoughts or feelings about the topic across to the reader.
- Rule of 3 – when 3 adjectives or phrases are used together to draw the reader’s attention.
- Personal pronouns – words such as you, our, we, and us. Personal pronouns make the reader feel like the writer is talking directly to them.
