The ability to influence others is essential for success in business, particularly in the PR profession. Being persuasive is not about being charismatic; it is about using principles of behavioral psychology, even in daily email, to induce people to accept your point of view, change their behavior, or comply with your request.  This webinar will share best practices for PR and Communication professionals on how to craft messages that motivate your audiences.

By the end of this webinar participants will be able to:
- Understand how to create the right atmosphere by strengthening your credibility before you need to persuade
- Learn how to open a message to a resistant audience  
- Understand how to hold attention and influence the audience’s thinking
- Explain how to use social influence tactics to tap an audience’s emotions
