Next important tip to remember is be sincere – sincerity has a power to convince. Show that you care about the topic and that’s why it is important to pick a topic that you are truly interested in.
Another useful thing in the art of persuasion is integrity. Your speech has to flow naturally from the introduction to your supporting statements, examples and to the conclusion. Don’t jump from one point of view to another. Stick to the plan and keep it structured. Confusing your listeners is not what you need when persuading.
You can also use humor, irony, satire, reason, and logic – anything that can help your argumentation. Just remember to keep it short and relevant.
