   How to Write A Perfectly Persuasive Email  |  Glassdoor, John Stevens, CEO of HostingFacts.com     08/16/2017
   Email is an essential part of our lives today.
 
   If you’re looking to get hired, you’ll most certainly have to use email during the recruiting
   process. If you already have a job, then you’ll more likely than not have to use email at some
   point to communicate with your colleagues and superiors — according to research by
   Pew Research, email has been found to be essential to the job of at least 61 percent of people.
 
   Research has shown email’s effectiveness, whether it’s in the workplace or for marketing, to be
   unrivaled. While email can for the most part be automated today, thanks to email services and
   apps that have evolved over time, there’s something that can’t be automated: the
   persuasiveness of your email.
 
   Whether it is to effectively carry out your job, to apply for a job you desire or for marketing
   purposes, below are some tips to help you write persuasive emails.


   Persuasion  |  Psychology Today
   How do you get people to think and behave a little differently? Persuasion is an art—If you
   push too hard, you will risk being aggressive. If you nudge too lightly, you may turn into a
   pest. A thoughtful, persuasive argument can lead you to getting what you want. Here's how.


   You’re Already More Persuasive than You Think 
     |  Harvard Business Review, Vanessa K. Bohns                                                                                                                           08/03/2015
   It’s amazing the opportunities we miss because we doubt our own powers of persuasion.

   Our bosses make shortsighted decisions, but we don’t suggest an alternative, figuring
   they wouldn’t listen anyway. Or we have an idea that would require a group effort, but
   we don’t try to sell our peers on it, figuring it would be too much of an uphill battle.
   Even when we need a personal favor, such as coverage for an absence, we avoid asking
   our colleagues out of fear of rejection.
