liking principle persuasion

Liking principle persuasion is a very effective technique you should know to persuade, even in advertising, face to face communication and social media. If you didn’t know this technique, you exhaust your energy, time and money for using a job that not sell.

Liking Principle Persuasion Definition

Liking Principle Persuasion means that we tend to agree and follow people who are similar to us. Recommendations from friends with the same identity as us can be as effective as the recommendations of famous artists. We tend to believe and follow in people of the same tribe, same religion, same area, same organization, same struggle. People tend to say “yes” to individuals and organizations they know more and like.

If in social media, people will be affected by just people like us, both commoners, not company representatives, not an artist. Act as a friend, not a product representative, a product defender. But as an objective and impartial evaluator.

The attractive appearance makes people more welcome, but not an attractive appearance that is too far away from the general appearance used by them.
Its application to the ads on Facebook is to match the language and outlook of the market segment. How is their language? Do they tend to use formal language or informal language and young people speak?

Liking Principle in Action

The “Liking Rule” is the reason why sales representative of Yakult is not from a country where Yakult come from (Japanese), but from a similar person as the customer, women as wife in the house. They also not attractive women, because attractive women are an offense for women who have a husband.

When Cialdini wrote book title Influence, there are famous marketing event, Tupperware parties.  In the parties, hostees that promote Tupperware is not very famous people, not very expert, but people as usual and have many similarities with a customer in the term, gender,  ethnic, religion, and so on. Tupperware seller is commoners, where people would collect a monetary reward from trading to their friends.

In the parties, they give door prizes, present, music and fun things, …and then the Tupperware seller tells about the benefit of her Tupperware. The customer would usually buy  Tupperware at the party, and seller or he who promote get a commission.

That is one of 6 technique persuasion. Check another technique: reciprocityConsistencysocial proof, scarcity,  and authority.  Which the sixth? liking. It is this article. He..heheh…

We use cookies to make advertising more engaging to users and more valuable to publishers and advertisers. Some common applications of cookies are to select advertising based on what’s relevant to a user; to improve reporting on campaign performance and to avoid showing ads that the user has already seen.

Google uses cookies like NID and SID to help customise adverts on Google properties, such as Google Search. For example, we use such cookies to remember your most recent searches, your previous interactions with an advertiser’s adverts or search results and your visits to an advertiser’s website. This helps us to show you customised adverts on Google.

We also use one or more cookies for advertising that we serve across the web. One of the main advertising cookies on non-Google sites is named ‘IDE‘ and is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net. Another is stored in google.com and is called ANID. We use other cookies with names such as DSID, FLC, AID, TAID and exchange_uid. Other Google properties, such as YouTube, may also use these cookies to show you more relevant adverts.

Sometimes advertising cookies may be set on the domain of the site that you're visiting. In the case of advertising we serve across the web, cookies named ‘__gads’ or ‘__gac’ may be set on the domain of the site that you're visiting. Unlike cookies that are set on Google's own domains, these cookies can't be read by Google when you're on a site other than the one on which they were set. They serve purposes such as measuring interactions with the ads on that domain and preventing the same ads from being shown to you too many times.

Google also uses conversion cookies whose main purpose is to help advertisers determine how many times the people who click on their adverts end up purchasing their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you clicked on the advert and later visited the advertiser site. Conversion cookies are not used by Google for personalised ad targeting and persist for a limited time only. A cookie named ‘Conversion‘ is dedicated to this purpose. It's generally set in the googleadservices.com domain or the google.com domain (you can find a list of domains that we use for advertising cookies at the foot of this page). Some of our other cookies may be used to measure conversion events as well. For example, DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies may also be used for this purpose.

We also use cookies named 'AID', 'DSID' and 'TAID', which are used to link your activity across devices if you’ve previously signed in to your Google Account on another device. We do this to coordinate that the ads you see across devices and measure conversion events. These cookies may be set on the domains google.com/ads, google.com/ads/measurement or googleadservices.com. If you don't want the ads that you see to be coordinated across your devices, you can opt out of Ads Personalisation using Ads Settings.
