Hello everyone! This is my first time ever talking on the poll however I would like some advice :)! Ok so I am taking professional and business speech in college and I have a speech around mid November. The topic we have to choose is to persuade my fellow classmates to buy or use a company. I have decided to choose crunchyroll because I have been a member for over 4 years and this place has helped me through so much with such wonderful anime and manga and dramas and has a great store. Anything do you think I should talk about? I have a long time to prepare :). Any advice will be helpful and taken accounted for.

always always always always be ready to address the cons of the company

list all the weaknesses of your argument or the particular company and be ready to address them (especially if there is a Q&A afterwards)

lots of people write amazing speeches but get destroyed when others grill them with questions they're not prepared for

Not sure how you could persuade someone who doesn't watch or like anime (this is presuming most don't) to get them to subscribe to CR but you can definitely work that you can use it for free. Tell them what you like about it and how it helped you through specific situations. If you are trying to get someone to use CR based upon how it helped you through some stuff don't be afraid to open up and share what it helped you get through. Hope this helps!!!!!!!!!

Nothing particular comes to mind. If I may, can I give advice on how to combat stage fright? You're the only one who knows what you're talking about, your audience doesn't. This helps me ease my fears and project more confident in front of a crowd, even if I'm driving myself crazy in my mind.

Good luck!

You actually picked a good subject to work on, it's kind of a rags to riches story it seems. A little pirate site that went legit, expanded into Asian drama, manga, merchandise deals, sub-licenses out their titles and is on pretty much every videogame system and streaming box on the market not to mention smart tvs. You have so many possible angles you could come in from from the growing library of content to the expanding merchandise sales or even the fact that anime itself has grown Worldwide thanks to the involvement of companies such as Disney (with the Ghibli catalog) or Universal. Pick the selling points you want to present but always be aware of the rest as Gyava suggested.
