Giving an explanation to many people about bitcoin is not a difficult job, but if it were to encourage people to use bitcoin in their business this would be a pretty difficult thing. The only sure way is we have to use bitcoin in the business. For example a restaurant business, assuming in that case then the restaurant should be able to accept bitcoin as one of its payment media. This is the fastest way if you want a business to adapt to btcoin, otherwise this way can also make more and more people asking what bitcoin. And in the end they will use bitcoin in every financial transaction every day. .

I guess if all local Bitcoin seller companies from our Country will push the promotion of Bitcoin. We will have an easy life. In my case, our local Bitcoin seller is COINS.PH. So far so good. Now we can pay our Electricity, water bills, creditcard bills, phone plan bills and almost anything using Bitcoin.

If you own a local business or have a close person who runs one persuade him to accept bitcoin and promote that fact you will gain competitors' attention very quickly especially if you gain more clients.

As ChrisPop said, tell your close friends about it, mouth to mouth is the best way, use it and others will follow

Yes advertising with local businesses is a good idea but it will cost some money. The best thing to do is to conduct some seminars but first make a survey on how many of them are really interested in bitcoin. And once you get a good number of people that are interested to know about bitcoin and improve their business, conduct that seminar.

Curiosity of local business is not good enough to encourage local businesses to accept bitcoin. Maybe we need to give them some idea regarding the good side of owning bitcoin. On that time we need to become one sided for the sake of good marketing of bitcoin.

Like what ? Encourage local businesses to accept BTC ? So you expect a seller, after selling to you, to wait minutes just for him to get his payment and carry mobile phones in his pocket around ?

Lmao…funny. This is just a crazy idea…you go to the market to buy foodstuffs, and you be like “please madam, let me have your BTC address, and how much it cost?” 😁 lol. And you spend like 30 minutes sending and waiting for confirmation. You guys ain’t serious.

At the time of congestion, you can wait for confirmation of not 30 minutes, but several days. I think this is the main reason that the business does not want to take bitcoin. But when you buy a product, you can offer the seller to take bitcoin. Maybe he will agree

by asking do you accept bitcoin  Grin. i know of a toy shop locally that accepts btc
It's good to hear that they are already shops in your country that accept bitcoin as a payment. I think we should better to tell that what will happen if they started to accept bitcoin then we should probably educate them first so that they will understand it. Bitcoin are already trend all over the world maybe they are only people that not yet know it but we should better to aware them about the good things about bitcoin.

I shop in my places to buy the computer equipment to mine. But I have not done so in the past few months. It is not very profitable to mine now.

By providing data of the BTC trend from year to year. If they are doing business and understand how it is done then there will be high probability they will see the opportunity in BTC

In my experience, if your going to go one by one and try to introduce them to BTCitcoin and explain how it works in order for them to accept payments of BTC , it would be really a lengthy process and you'll stop doing it before you start so the best suggestion I could make is either by making a mini seminar wherein you invite them altogether and talk about it and even show some of the YouTube videos that well known speakers of community are in and they cover almost everything... And in cases of online local businesses, you could try to send them a support ticket regarding the matter and I've had luck that they answered, "were already reviewing BTCitcoin payments and will consider it for the future" .
I agree it is much better to encourage and advertise Bitcoin to people in a more passive way where we just need to continue our support to Bitcoin my using it as a daily transaction for them to know and see what Bitcoin really is. In this time we don't much need to tell to them to used Bitcoin rather we just need to make an effort to let them see the possibilities and the development a head to Bitcoin.
Precisely, I think it is much better if we encourage them in passive way wherein let them to know and to explore how bitcoin work, there's no need for us to explain the finer details. We should continue on what we usually do in bitcoin like our daily transaction and let them see  of what will be the the effect of it upon their business.

This method or way can only be successfully implemented if the businessman will be open minded and ready to accept new things. I tried to new generation the same way, but they went very casual and just passed by what they heard. Tried to indirectly make fun.

But I was stuck to their two valid points about BTC, the fee and ofcourse the time taken to complete the transaction. The fee might not matter if the spender is earning, but the time will.

I think it's better to educate people around you about bitcoin and try to make them bitcoin literate instead of wasting your time and energy in trying to convince local businesses to accept bitcoin. Once people are bitcoin literate they themselves would demand the local businesses to accept bitcoin and then the local businesses will themselves be learning about it and eventually be accepting it. I think that can be much more fruitful and working method.

Maybe those online business man will go to accept first the BTC in there site but don't expect to much with offline businesses since some of the other guys who owns a shop doesn't even know on what is bitcoins and whats the used of it. And Unlike those online business geeks who can adopt it easily and expect that for more years to come and came up with huge price of btc I think businessmans will be convinced to try it since it could be a good expiremental payment option to them.

If truly the Bitcoin debit cards can be used anywhere, then you can also use them in stores for POS. But if you mean when local store will start accepting payments made through wallets, then it won’t be easy.
But, having lightening payment will increase the chances for them to start accepting it, though not everyone is interested in that, even I myself won’t be interested accepting Bitcoin locally.

It depends on the owner of the business, its hard to convince them because the value of bitcoin is fluctuating they will prefer to used fiat which is stable value and it is available to used by all people. Bitcoin is only better for online transactions.

Businessmen will not care about bitcoin if bitcoin can not provide them profit. In my country, there are not many people know about bitcoin and because of that, opening a store which accepts bitcoin is not a good idea. Paypal is even better than bitcoin in this case. It still depends on many factors if you want to encourage local businesses
