Which is whererepparttar emotional factor kicks in. Who wants to be dropped? Isn't that like being in high school again and not wanting to be excluded from a popular group? Isn't there an eternal desire to belong?

With this appeal to my insecurities and ambitions,repparttar 108112 copywriters have forced me to think about my decision not to renew. I can't just make a 'business as usual' decision; it must be a personal as well as business decision. And when a message gets 'personal,' it demands more involvement fromrepparttar 108113 reader or listener. More involvement, in turn, means more attention torepparttar 108114 message, making it more persuasive.

If you sell, this idea won't come as much of a surprise. But, if you try to influence behaviors in other ways, you may wish to add emotion to your communication toolbox. It's something you do by getting 'personal,' by tapping intorepparttar 108115 hopes, fears, or aspirations of those with whom you're communicating.
