Make a good presentation about bitcoin and how it works. Include the current list of businesses or company that is using bitcoin as a payment method. Engage them in a definite example of receiving and sending bitcoins to one address to another. Last but not the least is to tell them that accepting bitcoin as MOP will surely result in increase of sales.

A compilation of ideas presented in this thread will give you a formatted sequence in presenting bitcoin as a whole.  And it is better if you can do the editing so as to make everything presented in proper order.

Presentation is very good idea but who will step up for doing that and introduce it to business sector? Well i think for now and in this state is we need to show business sector our volume and how widely the market in bitcoin, the number of users and compatibility if they used bitcoin, by that theirs no really doubt that they will accept bitcoin as their mode of payment knowing bitcoins market are widing now all over the world and maybe they really consider aswell as they looking at the bitcoin for now and studying that it is worth for them to stake with this coin, but really if business sectors will accept bitcoin well it can make our life more easier.

Who will step up to introduce it? You can ask it to OP  Wink or to other persons who is similar with him, persons that want to help in announcing how bitcoin is truly an awesome creation for our whole wide world.

I am looking to help move BTC forward into our economy more and would like to get some suggestions on how we can get more retailers to accept BTC as a payment.  The best part about accepting BTC is that they do not have any threat of charge-back from the customer.  I am just looking for some more input before I start approaching some of these local retailers.

Honestly as my notice they are just afraid to be scam so if they see that bitcoin is not scam they can accept it in their business..
But for now for those who already know bitcoin they know the investment site and experience of scam i think we can not encourage them back here in bitcoin..

We need to first introduce Bitcoins in the public and to the business owners. We should give examples of the business currently accepting the bitcoins and how the bitcoins has transformed their business. Once we are able to convince them, then they might adopt bitcoin for their business.

Bitcoin isn't something for physical stores. That's why we don't use PayPal to buy coffees. It's not beneficial for an online store. That's why every store I go to, i contact their sorry and ask if they accept bitcoin.

Bitcoin is suitable for local business. That's why the QR code etc. is there.
With creditcards the validation happens after the transaction, with bitcoin it happens seconds after the transaction which makes bitcoin better for merchants then credit card.

The problem is software behind it is complex and merchants are not very techy, so it must be made easy for them.

I think first off you'd have to convince people to spend their BTC. Many of the people I know who introduced bitcoin payment for their services don't get many customers of that sort, so why bother to learn about it, since they "know all about doing business"?
I have a feeling the cc market is mostly about trading, buying low, selling high.

Indeed the most important thing is that we have to mention the very good advantages it has compared with other currency's from these days.

i think that you should invite them all to one place and tell them everything at once, because you would take too much time to tell same stuff to each one of them

and you should tell how bitcoin is good how it is easy to use it and receive payment from buyers and i am sure that they will like it, and they will accept bitcoins when there will be plenty of buyers ofc

In my experience, I have a friend who's also a guitarist, who is in a buy and sell.one day he decided to sell one of his  guitar pedal to me, it is cheap but I am short on cash, I told him that if I make him a bitcoin address and pay him with bitcoin would accept? he told me that he can't use it, but when I explained to him that he could use it to buy things online or buy cellphone load, then he told me that he will accept in the sense that he will return it if he got no use for it. but he never returned it to me.My point here is that by using part money and part bitcoin, we could encourage people to use it. and usually those small businesses were the first to start it and probably they'll spread it to other small businesses.

The best thing to do would be to gather all these small businesses together for a meeting and introduce them to the concept in simple and realistic terms, using lots of data to back up and prove your points
These people are interested in profit, so make sure you show them how beneficial and easy this can be, and you should be fine, however, at the same time they're not morons so please don't attempt to hide some down sides, instead present them and suggest easy fix solutions

It is very hard to encourage local businesses to accept it due to "Confirmations" and breaching, that just is not safe enough for them IN THEIR eyes.

It would be nice to just send a few mB to a company and get a slice of pizza though

That's awesome, but sadly we dont all have business friends that will accept btc, but it is a great idea to make local businesses accept it because then i can buy stuff just sitting on my computer then go pick it up later right after gambling!

This would be amazing but also make people very lazy.

Yes that will make people very lazy and that's a bad thing but you really have to look at it like BTC will be a future use and you'll see it upcoming in the halving process.

The savings on credit card transaction and processing fees are a reason for retailers to consider accepting bitcoin. Banks also usually have setup, maintenance, and processing fees for a business account. Adoption will take place as business owners become more aware of BTC and digital banking.

If you can show them what kind of advantages the bitcoin has they will like it and show some interests for sure.
The fact that they can control their own money makes it mostly very nice.
