Persuasive speech can be used for almost any subject. If you want your audience to join you in your way of thinking, or to do something different to what they are doing now then you use your communication skills to persuade them. Some people are better than others at this but it is a skill that can be learned by each and every one of us.



Persuasive speech is all around us on a daily basis, be it verbally or written. Politicians are great ones for using this skill to persuade people to vote for them. Sales people use the skill to persuade you to buy their product or
service. Adverts for special offers in your local supermarket are part of this skill as well.



Learning how to speak persuasively depends vastly on the type of person you are. If you are confident and outgoing then the skill will come easily to you. But, sometimes, event eh best of speakers come unstuck and lost for a way to write their speech. Let’s take a look at some persuasive speech ideas. These can be used for any form of communication.



The most important aspect is to grab the attention of your target audience right from the start. Treat the opening sentence of your communication as an attention grabbing headline and you’ve got your audience. Now you have to keep them.



Use humour, if appropriate to the subject you are talking about. Jokes always keep peoples interest provided they are relevant and not overdone. Knowledge is all important in persuasive speech. Research your subject thoroughly and make sure you have up to date information to impart to your audience.



Make direct contact with your audience and involve them. Don’t talk at them, talk to them and with them. Include them by asking questions, not necessarily for an answer but to provoke thought. The right questions in the right place will make people think about what you are saying and it will keep your speech fresh in their minds.



Don’t waffle. Your speech should be concise, to the point and logical. Don’t use verbal fillers as you will lose the audience quickly. Don’t use too much jargon; you need people to understand what you are talking about. On the other hand you must not speak to your audience as if they are a group of 5 year olds.



Your summary should be memorable. It should include all of the important points from your speech and raise questions in the audience’s mind. Questions that can only be answered by joining you in whatever you are trying to persuade them to do.



Using the above persuasive speech ideas should be a good start for anyone who is trying to write a memorable persuasive speech. Remember that it is all about striking the balance between holding your audience rapt on the edge of their seats and watching them snooze in their chairs because you’ve lost them. And once your audience is lost, its hard work to get them back again.
