At some point in our careers, there may come a time when we need to write a persuasive message convincing others to act in a certain way. In order to do this, our writing needs to be effective and convincing. This style of writing may sound tricky, but these tips I found from should help:

  • Be confident

Use strong, unequivocal language in your writing to show your reader that you are confident and mean business.

  • Use the active voice

Using the active voice instead of the passive voice will cause your writing to be more direct and concise.

  • Do your research

You must have your facts straight if you want your writing to be persuasive and taken seriously.

  • Use proper grammar and spelling

In order to be convincing, your writing must be grammatically correct. Errors will cause people to question your abilities.

These helpful tips can help anyone to write more persuasively!
