Specifics of persuasive essay writing: a set of advice for students
There several types of essay writings in the world. However, writing a persuasive essay is the most difficult job because here you have to convince the other party that your point of view is correct and their (opposes) argument is invalid. Over here you have to change the thinking of the opposing party by bringing forward logical and rational logic. Not everyone is good at persuading, and only a handful people in the world are able to possess this rare talent. That being said, persuasive writing is very much part of our everyday life- you can find it in advertisement, newspapers, politics, etc. So there is no doubt that persuading someone is a skill that is highly demanded nowadays, and that’s why I will be telling you on how to write a strong persuasive write-up by enlightening you with the steps you should take before and during your writing process.
First and foremost, it is important to pick a side. You are either supporting an argument or against it. There is no room for doubt that’s why you have to maintain strong conviction and in your argument because if you are not convinced then how do you expect to convince others?
Secondly, you should conduct a thorough research on points supporting and challenging your argument. Make a list of things that will strengthen your argument and try to find out any flaws in the counter argument so that when the time comes you’re not found dumbstruck.
Thirdly, back your claims with proper evidence and research. If you quote a popular person or anyone who is well-known for his expertise, then the chances are that people will think of you as a credible source. Otherwise, no one would pay any heed even if you have a strong argument.
Lastly, you should conclude by further emphasizing your point made in the introductory, and the main body of the write-up and the articulation should be in such a way that it compels the reader to think and act.
In the end, I would like to conclude by saying that if you follow the guidelines mentioned above, then it is a guarantee that you will end up with a strong and compelling argument that will leave your readers awestruck, and they will come to the conclusion that you were right all along.
