Persuasion techniques are effective weapons of communication. They allow you to get what you want whenever you want without having to use force. A lot of successful people have gotten to where they are because they knew how to use persuasion techniques to their advantage.

I’m sure you wouldn’t want to miss out on similar opportunities. Below are some persuasion tactics that will suit almost any situation.

1) Be their hero.

The very foundation of persuasion techniques lies in the person doing the talking. If you don’t have any self-confidence, you’re not going to get very far. You might garner a pity vote or two, but that’s not what you want to happen.

To be persuasive, you have to be their hero, their knight in shining armor. You must not falter in your quest because one wrong move can send you spiraling back to zero. So trust in yourself and your skills. Hone them with every opportunity and take the time to actually practice them.

2) Level with them.

If you want to persuade somebody, you have to understand where they’re coming from. You also have to possess an intuition of how to approach certain kinds of people. This sort of intuition only gets stronger with every use of your persuasion techniques.

Along the way, you’ll learn that you can’t use facts and numbers to persuade an emotional person, because that person can’t “connect” with what you’re talking about.

Likewise, you can’t expect to persuade an “analytical” type to donate money to your cause with tears and heart-warming stories of the endangered Pandas in China. This leads me to one of the most important persuasion techniques you have to master.

3) What’s in it for them.

Whether the person you’re trying to persuade asks this out loud or not, they are most likely thinking about it. To get someone to support you, you have to tell them how your proposal will benefit them.

Not everyone will agree immediately to your request, unless you clearly indicate what’s in it for them. As the persuader, you have to be two steps ahead of the others.

You have to know what they might want to have in return. Do they want the satisfaction of a job well done or do they want clearer compensation? Be ready to offer what they really want; because unless you hold what they desire on your plate, the chances of persuasion are slim.

Using persuasion techniques varies from person to person. Others are naturally gifted with a golden tongue and can persuade anybody of anything. However, practice, perseverance and the right knowledge combined can lead to your success.
