About Persuasion Automation

Persado invented a way of using computers to write natural language called Persuasion Automation. The platform uses advanced math and science to generate the most persuasive language for digital communications intended to drive action. Through various message types and ad units like emails, display ads and mobile messages, the engine of the commercial internet is driven on short, digital, persuasive messages. Calculating the optimal emotional language to use, Persado’s Persuasion Automation has shown an average 75% greater performance compared to copy created in the traditional manner, by human copywriters without the help of persuasive language automation.

What we deliver:

  • Machine generated campaign language, designed to engender the optimal direct response rates, whether measured as opens, clicks, conversions, orders, etc.
  • Unique linguistic attribution dashboard showing relative impact of words and phrases across campaign
  • Average 75% improvement versus control copy written by humans unaided by Persuasion Automation
  • Iconic Wheel of Emotions represents 19 categories of emotional language explored automatically by Persado
  • Breakthrough writing tool for marketers and copywriters that uses math and science to figure out the optimal wording
  • Persuasive Emotional Index of most emotionally engaging language for your audience/segment
