Persuasive “Sales Pitch” Speech

For this speech outline, you are to assume that we (your audience) are interested in taking a vacation in Kansas State. Your job is to persuade us to take our vacation in the Kansas. Remember, persuasion is not only about what you say, but also how you say it.

 

You are required to use AT LEAST TWO outside sources to boost your credibility while writing this speech (you may use as many sources as necessary.) I suggest having one source for each main point. Websites/online resources are considered acceptable sources. However, no Wikipedia or the equivalent! These sources will NOT count for credit. You must turn in a citation page of all sources used. You may use MLA or APA. 

You must then create an “oral citation” for EVERY source used. This is where you cite each source out loud during your presentation either through a direct quote or paraphrase. IF YOU DO NOT INCORPORATE ANY SOURCES IN YOUR SPEECH YOU WILL EARN 10 POINTS OFF OF YOUR SPEECH GRADE. I suggest searching for your state’s name.gov (for example, California.gov). This is the state’s official website and is a good place to start your search. 

 

Here is how the outline should be...

 

Introduction

I. Attention Getting Opener. (Get our attention and get us interested about the state of Kansas. You could tell us some interesting facts about Kansas, paint a mental picture of the beauty of your kansas, or describe something to help us visualize what your Kansas is all about….)

 

2. Tell the audience what topic you are speaking about (what state you are persuading us to vacation to) and preview your 2-3 main points (Tell us what 2-3 pieces of information about the Kansas. Your main points could be tourist destinations, attractions, regions of the state, events happening in the state, places to eat, things to do in different cities or any mixture of the above.) Be creative and have fun! 

 

Body: HAVE MINIMUM 2 ORAL CITATIONS!

 

Transition: Remind us what Main Point #1 is. (e.g. “First of all…”)

1. Support/discuss main point Main Point #1 

 

Transition: Remind us what Main Point #2 is. (e.g. “Second…”, “Next…”)

2. Support/discuss main point Main Point #2 

 

Transition: Remind us what Main Point #3 is. (e.g. “Finally...” “Third…” “Lastly…”)

3. Support/discuss main point Main Point #3 

 

Conclusion

1. Re-cap your topic and main points. 

 

2. End with a concluding remarks/comment. Give us some parting statements encouraging us to book our vacation to your state. This is your last chance to really “sell” it! Don’t end on a dud!
