How to be more persuasive
Webinar - July 02, 2021 at 10:00am - 11am
The ability to write a killer proposal, business case, or other persuasive content can be the difference between success and closing the doors—between climbing the ladder or remaining static.
Knowing how to be persuasive in text is both a skill and an art. First of all, how to keep them awake? And then you don’t want to fall into the old trap of the cheesy sales pitch. But you also don’t want to resort to straight up scaremongering.
In this webinar we’ll cover:
- The art of persuasion: what are we really trying to do?
- Ethos, pathos logos
- How to engage your reader (hint: it’s their PAIN)
- How we need to be honest about reader behaviour if we want to be persuasive (because no amount of persuasion will work if they don’t read the damn thing
