Persuasive Techniques for Advertising and Design

The creative and communications landscape has become extremely complex, involving media that can range from a feature film to a six-second Vine, and from an epic installation to a two-centimetre high Facebook advert. Attention spans are becoming shorter and more fragmented. Communications and marketing budgets are being spread thinner and decision-makers are prepared to take fewer risks. 

As a result, it has never been more vital to be powerfully persuasive. We are all in the business of persuasion. Whether it be persuading clients to buy our work, or consumers to buy the products and services we advertise or make, persuading judges that our campaign is worth an award or persuading colleagues to choose and make our ideas. But very few of us are ever taught how to be more persuasive.

Masterclass Outline

Kit Altin will teach you how to apply the same focus, rigour, intelligence and imagination to selling your ideas as you do to creating them. The day will be fast, fun and extremely practical, based not only on psychological theory but on industry experience of what really works. You’ll learn the essentials of being powerfully persuasive, helping you to sell your ideas, convince your clients and engage your target audience.

Kit will go through the classic and contemporary understanding of how persuasion works, using sources from Aristotle to modern thinkers such as Daniel Pink. You’ll keep applying what you’ve learned throughout the day and at the end, you’ll get to tackle a new persuasion challenge, which will underpin and consolidate the day’s work.
