The flyers I put up the other day were taken down, either by the weather or by officious "do-gooders". But not to worry, I've gone and put up some more! Grin They are pinned up at strategic bus stops, lamp posts outside neighbourhood convenience stores, etc. I should keep doing this periodically.

Thanks man. Smiley

If it's council officials who took the flyers down, there's almost certainly no bias. I don't see any flyers visible around the city centre so they're probably making some kind of effort at public cleanliness/orderliness or something, a far cry from the situation 30 years ago for sure.

I don't actually recall ever seeing They Live, so now you've got me curious. TPB has it, of course.

Dude, that film is core curriculum.

I'll try to remember to take the camera with me! Filming and taping up flyers at the same time is of course a bit tricky...

This is a cool idea, especially when combined with the fiat currency.

It could be one of those things that they see it but it doesn't really register until they get a bill in their hands.

Assuming there is no law against defacing your money (there probably is for fly posting) just write "bitcoin.org" on all the debt notes that pass through your hands then everyone who uses the money will see it.

Thanks a bunch for the ingenious guerrilla marketing idea. I've just gone ahead and done this for all the euro notes currently in my wallet.

I experimented a bit with different writing instruments, and in the end would recommend using a pencil. It works and looks better (at least on euro notes) than a ballpoint pen, doesn't permeate to the other side of the note as a felt tip pen would, and is erasable in case the payee gives you any grief about your illicit graffiti Cool

I had an ink stamp made years ago...  Much faster for marking large batches of notes (:

Honestly though bitcoin isn't ready from the prime time, it's still too nerdish. It needs to be a phone app that's both hacker proof and so simple your grandma could use it and transactions need to near instantaneous so you can use it in a store.

That is true to an extent. Then again, I consider myself only very mildly nerdish (it's been decades since I've actually written a fully functioning computer program, honest Guv!) yet have not found it too daunting to get into using Bitcoin and grasping the major concepts. The whole notion of a cryptocurrency as a hard e-commodity might be the tricky bit to explain to the unwary.

Then again, it's already been recently said around here that most high-street shops don't deal in gold, yet that substance still trades at $1600/ozt or so. Smiley Bitcoin isn't yet widely accepted but it is increasingly widely accepted.
That's where a third party service like Bitcoin comes in.

The posters at http://coinabul.com/promote/ are a good start but not exactly what I'm looking for. I did not manage to locate the poster printing functionality on https://localbitcoins.com/ just yet; perhaps that requires having an advertisement.

Yep, you do need an advertisement, because the flyer is advertising _your_ cash exchange. So it is very useful - you put the flyer to some billboard, some potential customer will spot the flyer, grab your exchange address and buy some bitcoins from you - allowing you to profit. And also excellent way to market bitcoins and help the average Joe to get started with bitcoins right away.

Example, my flyer: http://imgur.com/WPIFp (sorry for the finnish language, my exchange is obviously in Finland)

Edit: and btw, the flyer looks much smoother as original PDF, imgur converts the pdf to crappy quality...

Thanks for the LocalBitcoins.com flyer sample, that is pretty nifty. No worries about the Finnish, it was perfectly legible Wink

For those who may not have been watching the spin-off thread regarding guerrilla marketing on paper money, some highlights:

Here my first Canadian dollars ready to be unleashed!



Done!



I hope they are still legal tender  Cheesy

Many good follow-up ideas being bandied about regarding rubber stamps, stickers, QR codes, and whatnot; please join the discussion!

I'd love to make a giant bitcoin-logo crop circle one day. Imagine the headlines, aliens supporting bitcoin! Anyone up for it? Smiley

Just noticed some potentially useful flyer designs in the Bitcoin Marketing Cards thread:

My brother and I have been working on some Bitcoin marketing material for the upcoming Students for Liberty conferences in New York City and Boston. We're going to be manning a table there with the good folks from the Free State Project, to try and get the young ones interested in Bitcoin!

We're putting the design work into the public domain and we'd love for people to download it and print their own. We'll also be selling printed material for you to order online. We've got a lot of exciting ideas we're working on, so stay tuned for more! [...]
