150 Topics to Draft an Effective Persuasive

A persuasive essay, as you may know, is a type of
writing that aims to persuade the readers into
believing that the argument or claim made in the
essay is correct. Even though there are quite a
few similarities between an argumentative essay
and a persuasive essay, the latter one tends to
be a bit kinder and gentler. While in an
argumentative essay, you need to discuss and
contradict the alternate views, a persuasive
essay takes a more lenient approach to convince
the reader that the writer has made a believable
(No Transcript)
In terms of the primary objective, both
persuasive and the argumentative essay tries to
utilize logic and reason to prove that the
mentioned idea or argument is better than any
other existing idea or argument. Even though
there are several other ways to establish ones
point, persuasive essays must always make proper
reason by stating facts, providing solid evidence
and logical reasoning, using relevant examples
and mentioning a few significant quotes from the
experts. If you are planning on writing a
persuasive essay, you need to consider of a few
significant thumb-rules.

Pick a Topic
Whether you realize it or not, the topic of an
essay often determines how interesting your essay
is going to be. Due to this reason, it becomes
quite important to pick a topic that not only
pokes the interests of your audience but also
adds more value to your career (academic or
professional). You can either brainstorm and come
up with a topic that fulfills the aforementioned
requirements or refer to some of the sample
topics which we shall discuss later in this blog.

Know Where you Stand
Once you have selected a topic for your
persuasive essay, your second objective should be
to identify your position. In simpler words, you
need to acknowledge which side of the issue you
are going to write about. Some of the essay
topics can be too vague and broad to fit in a
five-paragraph-long essay. So, its more
convenient to explore a particular aspect of the
topic rather than covering it entirely. Also,
before you start writing the essay, you need to
understand what will be your stand in the essay.

Understand your Audience
This is perhaps the most significant step that
you need to consider while drafting a persuasive
essay. You can write a remarkable essay on a
particular topic, but if your audience (or
reader) does not receive it well, all the efforts
will go in vain.  As a matter of fact, you need
to analyze and acknowledge your audience before
you can start working on the essay.

Do your Research
As mentioned before, a persuasive essay must
offer some precise and convincing pieces of
evidence to support the claim or argument that is
mentioned in it. So in order to gather those
valuable pieces of the puzzle, you need to look
beyond your personal experience and knowledge and
explore other potential sources of information.
If possible go through all the available
documents on the particular topic, including both
printed and digital sources of information.

Be Organized
When you are working on the essay, you cant just
haphazardly state your arguments and randomly use
the pieces of evidence to prove your point. You
need a structured outline which will tell you
what should be placed where. Present your
arguments and evidence in an orderly fashion so
that readers dont get confused while going
through your essay.
Remember to follow these unbeatable thumb-rules
while approaching a persuasive essay. As
mentioned before, finding a perfect topic that
meets all the requirements (audiences
preferences, own interests, relevance, uniqueness
and precision) can be harder than it sounds. To
make this simpler for you, we have assembled some
interesting persuasive essay topics that can help
you accelerate the topic selection process for
your pending persuasive essay.
