5 Tips For Persuasive Presentation

If you want to make a persuading presentation, you’ll need to know your audience. By knowing your audience, you’ll be able to tailor your presentation’s word choices and slide images. It’s also important to avoid using technical language that might be off-putting to listeners. Instead, use words that make your listeners feel you’ve taken the time to prepare for them.

1. Focus on your message

When preparing to give a persuasive presentation, it is best to follow an outline. This outline will act as a guide for the presentation and can be customised to meet your needs. In addition to the outline, you should also develop a hook for your speech that will draw your audience in. The hook should be relevant to the issue you’re discussing and should establish your credibility as a speaker.

To deliver a persuasive presentation, you need to be focused. You should not ramble or digress in order to get your point across. You should also avoid making use of awkward body language or inappropriate clothing. For example, don’t talk in inches or discuss the victims of a disease in Shanghai. Make sure every detail of your presentation makes sense to your audience.

2. Practice

One of the first steps to preparing a persuasive presentation is to develop an outline. An outline acts as a framework for the entire presentation, and it can be easily modified to meet the needs of your audience. The outline should contain an introduction that identifies a problem and relates to your audience. It should also include a hook that draws the audience in and establishes your credibility.

Make eye contact with your audience during your presentation. Not only does this show your audience that you are engaged in the conversation, but it also makes you seem more trustworthy. Avoiding eye contact is a tell-tale sign that you’re trying to hide something from the audience. In contrast, eye contact with your audience can indicate that you’re being completely honest.

3. Be present in the moment

One of the most important tips for making a persuasive presentation is to be present in the moment. It can help you to field questions, address obstacles, and notice the body language of your audience. You can use this approach to increase your credibility and improve your performance.

4. Use historical examples

When making a persuasive presentation, use historical examples to illustrate your point. If you’re trying to make an argument, you may have to change the wording of some sentences to make them more compelling. For instance, instead of writing “Voters voted for John Kerry,” you might write “John McCain endorsed John Kerry,” which implies that the voters voted for him.

5. Cite credible sources

When building a persuasive presentation, you need to establish credibility. Credibility is the ability to have the listener believe what you say. That’s why it’s essential to use credible sources. Aside from academic publications, you can also cite personal experiences to create connections with your audience. I love to use examples from the Bible.

You can use introductory phrases to introduce your topic. For example, you can include the name of the professor or author of the article. Or, you could include the name of the original research. Then, you can include details about the source and the author’s work.
