A charity requires people to donate their hard-earned money to the organization. If they don’t put up a good reason for it, people won’t be supporting the charity wholeheartedly.

Marketing for any product means influencing people’s behavior towards the said product. Without knowing how to connect to people, how is a company supposed to make its sales?

The bottom line, persuasion isn’t just a trick. It’s a talent worth sharpening for everyone, regardless of their field. It helps people become more positive towards your approach and support you. And once you get through to someone, you can finally get them to say “yes”.

1. Showing Similarity

One way of becoming more persuasive is by displaying how similar you are to the person you are talking to.

Here’s a question for you- who are you more likely to help out financially, your friend or a random stranger?

2. Don’t Command, Give Options

It’s strange how when you give people the option to say “no”, often, they end up saying “yes”. Confused? Well, let us elaborate.

People don’t like taking commands, meaning they don’t like being told what to do.

3. Quantity or Quality?

Persuaders usually have their ideas organized for different audiences. You need to know when to dazzle your crowd with a lot of information and when to cut it down to a few short impressive points.

4. Sound Relevant

People pay attention to what you are saying if they can relate it to their own lives.
