    Writing Skills: Definition and Examples – 2022 Guide
    There are several conversation moments, where you need to make the argument in such a way that must help to convince the audience about it. Or you might have been assigned with a topic to write about, that needs you to persuade the readers. In such situations, you need a plan on how to convince your audience through the efficacy of your argument. These plans are known as argument strategies. Argumentative strategies are the plan to present your arguments and justifications in such a manner that it must persuade your audience.
    In an essay, argument writing requires logical thinking to appeal to readers. This is known as using rhetoric, or the ability to write arguments persuasively. In today’s information economy developing such communication skills can help you to flourish in your career. However, many writers struggle to write strong persuasive arguments. Therefore, you can consult with an expert essay writer to help you in writing compelling arguments.
    Here is a list of key argumentative strategies, which will help in succeeding to write convincing arguments.
    Differentiate between persuasion and argumentation
    You must have to use a logical and valid reasoning method to persuade your readers about your argument. For this purpose, you cannot simply use any persuasion method. Persuasion means to appeal to the readers’ emotions. While argumentation means using evidence and logic to build your argument. You will have to persuade the readers, yet in a logical manner not in an emotional way.
    Avoid using logical fallacies
    There are several types of logical fallacies that are often used by beginner essay writers without even realizing their presence. For instance, you should not use the Bandwagon fallacy approach in the argument. This means, to encourage your readers by giving the reason that “everybody is doing it”. Avoid using causality fallacy, which means, using a false and irrelevant cause and effect relation.
    Choose words according to the type of audience
    You must keep in mind the type of audience, whom you are addressing. For instance, you might be using proper terminologies in your argument, since you have sufficient background knowledge. Yet, you fail to convince your readers, because they cannot simply understand the complex wording.
    Building your arguments with the help of analogies
    Using deductive and inductive reasoning skills
    You can provide examples to strengthen the validity of your argument while using deductive and inductive reasoning skills. In a deductive argument, you can use a general example to reach a specific and logical conclusion. While in an inductive argument, you can use a specific example to find and reach a broader conclusion. These skills help in making easily understandable examples, which persuades the readers.
    Answering the counter-arguments
    A strong argument must be answering the objections made against it. You might lose validity if you do not address the important opposing ideas. It might give out the impression that you have no complete knowledge about the topic. If you have researched your topic well, only then you will be able to respond to the counter-arguments.
    Avoid using the Ad Hominem fallacy in such a situation, which means to attack back the person, who has made the objections, instead of answering the objections. Such a step will give out the impression that you are unable to take the opposition productively. Instead, admit the value of the objection, yet carefully point out a flaw, without belittling the person.
    Using Logos, Ethos, and Pathos
    Logos means to use logic while making an argument. This is the most accredited method of convincing the readers. In this method, if you are making a claim, you must provide evidence to prove your argument to be true.
    Ethos means to use ethics to support your argument. Since ethics are socially acceptable, therefore you can use ethical support to strengthen your argument. If you failed to support your argument with ethics, your argument might also fail to convince your readers.
    Pathos means to emotionally appeal to your readers to accept your argument. Pathos is generally used in persuasion, therefore it must not be used excessively in your essay. It is often
    discouraged to use Pathos, as it makes your argument less credible. 
    Summarize your argument
    To help your readers better understand your writing piece, you must conclude it by repeating your main argument. Then write your final thoughts about your main claim in the simplest
    words possible. This will enable the readers to get an overview of the whole discussion. It will also leave a strong and positive impression that you stand firm on your argument. While the opposing views have not confused or changed your point of view.
