Content marketing is about creating strategies to increase influence and engagement with your target audience. Robert Cialdini’s 6 Principles of Influence provide a valuable framework to help content marketers understand how people make decisions and craft persuasive messages. By understanding the psychology behind why people act, marketers can create more effective campaigns that resonate with their audiences.



As laid out by Robert Cialdini, the principles of influence are potent tools that can be used to persuade others effectively. From reciprocity and scarcity to authority, commitment, consistency, liking, and consensus, Cialdini’s six principles provide a set of rules that a person should follow.

Reciprocity is the first universal principle of influence and is based on the idea that people feel obligated to return favors. Scarcity is the notion that people want something more when it is rare or unavailable. The authorities suggest that people are more likely to be influenced by someone with knowledge or experience. Commitment and consistency indicate that once a person commits to an idea or behavior, they act on it. Liking encourages people to be persuaded by those they like or admire. Finally, consensus suggests that people are more likely to be influenced if they believe others around them already agree with a particular viewpoint. When applied correctly, Cialdini’s six principles of influence can be incredibly effective in helping sway opinions or decisions. By understanding each code in depth and how it works, you can use them strategically for maximum impact.

The interactive presentation below will show you how to apply these six principles of influence to your content marketing strategy.
