Purpose of a persuasive essay

Persuasive essay is used as an academic writing document to make a claim and then give logic and reasons to prove your claim or convince the readers. Persuasive essay is sometimes named as argumentative essay as it contains one main argument or claim and then supports evidence which are logics or support of an article. Many researchers, writers of journals, new paper writers and authors use techniques or persuasive essay techniques to give strength to their work or opinion.

Persuasion is used in our everyday life as well, so it is not compulsory to select a formal or academic topic for writing this essay. Most of the times when I had to write my essay, I always opt for persuasive speech as it is a flexible approach to giving logic and arguments. In fact, most of the topics are normal statements like; Pizza is a better burger, this is just an opinion of a person but supporting logic cannot be in the form of opinions, personal choices or beliefs. Rather you will give some details like sales of pizza were higher than burger, people prefer pizza over burgers by giving some figures.
