Theoretical frameworks

Persuasion architecture

There are four decision-making persona archetypes who each surf, choose and click in their own way.
These complement the supporter personas – each decision-making persona is represented within each of the supporter personas.
It’s important to address each decision-making persona on a web page or other online medium.
It can be used as a paradigm for evaluating or structuring a webpage, email etc. It is recommended to present a message not only from your own perspective, but to empathize with the reader as well.
