I think you can give them a short explantion as to why you support bitcoin.

Short explanation isn't going to be enough to show those local business owners why you support bitcoin and on how they are going to benefit from it.

You need to show and explain why they are going to get benefit from it like giving their customers another way of paying their services and goods.

And of course disclose to them the disadvantage of it.
And when you speak or disclose about its disadvantage then most of them or all of those owners will directly neglect or refuse bitcoin but well its a part on explaining it so that they would be aware about bitcoin even more.Local business owners cant really easy adopt bitcoin since its not being regulated by the government and they dont like unstable prices.

I guess they won't since they are open-minded and they know how business works, for sure they know that it has risk and negative impact to the people.

They will simply understand it as long as you can defend that negativity into positive opportunity.

With enough people, they might consider it as one of their payment methods. Hopefully as bitcoin users increase, it will influence businesses.

I think if people are already using bitcoins, merchants will just follow. Imagine if you're the owner and someone asked you if you're accepting bitcoins, and then after a short while somebody asked you again. And then the next day somebody asked you again, you surely will be totally curious about what's bitcoin. If you push a business owner to accept bitcoins because it will "bring more sales and new customers" and there's not that much bitcoin users at the area, he will just be disappointed at you because you forced him and all his efforts are for nothing.

We can encourage local businesses to accept Bitcoin by embarking on massive enlightenment campaign via mass media, with the aid of banners ,posters e.t.c  local business will thrive if more people accept Bitcoin as means of payment.

It depends on the approach you will made on how you would able to explain but there are business owners who were close minded persons which they would stand for their own views and beliefs in terms of business and most of them do really like to play safe which means chances of being rejected or neglected about bitcoin would be really high.

It wil be great if local businesses accepts bitcoin but why not focus on the root of the problem on why they don't accept it? Imo it is because they have

never heard of it/using it and not a single customer have mentioned it. I'm one of those people who believes that if bitcoin became popular, Its

acceptance from various kinds of business will naturally come. What we should do now is to increase the satisfied bitcoin users.

Yes as long as you are going to approach them positively and on a encouraging spirit that can make them brought up with your feeling.

And when they feel that you are sincere and they are going to trust you, they won't have any doubts on you.

But make sure that you are not going to force them to accept bitcoin, it will be the bad way of encouraging them.

It takes more than positivity to encourage people to basically change their perception of money and move into cryptocurrency. Change is scary for most people. We have to really convince them about the benefits and uses of bitcoin.

Now with the Hard Fork possibility it will be really hard to encourage someone to start accepting Bitcoins... The possibility of a splitted community doesn't inspire confidence from investors and businessmen looking for a new payment method for their sites, stores, etc. The best to do is to observe what will happen with the currency in the next days and weeks. Introduce a layman in Crypto-Currency now can be frustrating.

Actually they don't have to move from money to crypto currency. It's all about acceptance and there's no risk on it if we are going to see it on the lighter side.

They will just simply apply this "Bitcoin accepted here." Simple as that and they don't even have to invest on it but only by accepting payment with bitcoin.

Another thing is the price is very unstable that can give them some fear.

Still, many people don't know about this hard fork yet because only a few people who are showing interest towards bitcoin will understand the word hard fork. I hope it is not possible with bitcoin and also it is not the right time to suggest for local business people if bitcoin price falls down they will scare about it.

I think the problem is that it is too volatile at the moment for shops to accept Bitcoin. If they pay their suppliers in Fiat, then by the time they have sold the goods Bitcoin could experience a drop in price so even if the store owner sold the goods, they still might not be better off.

It will happen I'm sure, just not until it stabalises more on price.

that's why i told you to ask for friends help to explain bitcoin together lol ,
then you can figure out what makes people don't want to start using bitcoin ,
why they did not know yet about this cool and popular stuff on the internet ,
find a solution for that and convince them bitcoin has a lot of advantage to offers.

They need to understand bitcoin price will be up and down, but in this matter, the local shopkeeper will not convince about the price speculation.
They set up a business for money, but if they lost through trading than to regain the money it is not possible. Because bitcoin is completely online stuff.

The current state of the volatility in Bitcoin would be a big disappointment for local businesses right now. Will that mean they will keep adjusting their prices? What about the present BTC they are holding, that means they are losing value by holding them. Bitcoin was worth 1200 3 weeks ago now it is worth below 1000.

Dear knightkon,

You are very welcome to get involved with the revolutionary Blockpay product recently developed by Bitshares Munich. Please see the video below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcuVSjR6gkk

See also their link attached here:

https://blockpay.ch/

As you can see, retailers are now able to accept any digital currency or asset (not only Bitcoin) as payment for their goods or services in a matter of seconds.

Moreover, the volatility issue has been resolved with this new technology including smartcoins pioneered by Bitshares. The Blockpay solution works at any brick and mortar (physical) or online store. The retailers just need to download and use the Blockpay app as a point of sale. They are also able to cash out the earned money in their local FIAT currency bank accounts if they wish to.

If you download the smartcoins app and blockpay app yourself, get the product information as well in printed version, then show your local retailers a live Blockpay demo, they might take you very seriously indeed.

Regards

Offcourse we can encourage local business owners to accept bitcoin by introducing bitcoin to them and making them understand the advantages of it. But it all depends upon the country. Because shop owners are answerable to government officials during the financial year end for the tax related issues. Its easy to accept bitcoin as payment in countries were bitcoin is officially annouced as legal .

One country that legally accepts bitcoin is Japan. As you can see, there's no need to market bitcoin there as Japanese people are accepting it enthusiastically.

So you are correct, it really depends on the country if they legalized or against bitcoin. For countries that's against it, local owners or merchants will be facing a huge barrier promoting or accepting bitcoin as payment specially if you have a offline business. On the contrary, if you have a on-line business, you just have to put an option you are accepting bitcoin as mode of payment. Let bitcoin promote itself in your website. Maybe other will be curious as to what bitcoin is, and will probably use it as mode of payment when they understand how bitcoin works and what advantage they can have if they use it as payment scheme.
