Persuasion is the act of communicating in order to get your audience to agree with your point of view. Appeals to logic, reason, and credibility are most appropriate for persuasive writing in organizations, though appeals to emotion may be effective in limited circumstances. Persuasive Argument is writing that is designed to convince an audience to adopt the writer’s point of view rather than to strictly inform or express a feeling
