Here are a few very effective persuasive speeches techniques that will help you with your speeches. Some of them are writing tips and some of them are tips on how to perform your speech. Some of the techniques are mixture of both.
Write your speech with short sharp points
You may feel that your speech needs to be similar to have a president’s inaugural address. But this is not the case. Your speech can be short and it can even be fractured. You can make your speech seem a little bit more like a poem and it is still a persuasive speech. This will enable people to short attention span to keep up with what is being said. It also allows the speaker to have dramatic pauses, or to slow down and speed up the rate at which he or she speaks.
Write your speech so that it comes to a climax
All you need to do here is a start off with bigger words that take longer to say, and then alter the pace of the writing so that the rate of speech becomes faster and faster until it reaches a loud climax. In order to ensure that you have done this correctly, you are going to have to practice the speech, so that you can be sure it is worded in a way that allows the climax to occur.
Practice the speech yourself
In order to ensure your speech is actually persuasive, you are going to have to practice your speech yourself. When doing this you need to look out for places where the flow of conversation does not seem to sit very well. When we read, the voice in our heads sounds very different to the way we speak out loud because the voice in our head is a lot quicker. If you read your speech aloud, you will see when you have shortened your sentences too much and where you have overly long sentences.
Remember that your speaker needs to take a breath
When we read something in our heads we move along faster than we do what we are reading something aloud. You must also remember that a speaker needs to take a breath when the speech is being said. Here is one of many unknown but great persuasive speech techniques; what you need to do is insert commas and full stops in places where the speaker would naturally stop and take a breath inwards.
