i would do it simple, tell them the advantages of bitcoin, the fact about very low or zero fee, and the fact that is less trouble some than fiat

you can also add that the payment and confirmation can be instant, if they ask about it, just need to work with an off chain system liek bitpay
Yes sir i follow your method. Firstly i discuss about bitcoin popularity and advantage over the world, then i inspire them about low fee of bitcoin and transaction method is so easy. I hope i will get their feedback.
The only issue which is resulting in this much inconvenience is the lack of knowledge about bitcoin and crypto currency to the ones who are sitting there in the local business market. If we really want them to start accepting bitcoin, we have to make them well aware of the bitcoin first. After that, we’ll be able to convince them on a point that you start accepting bitcoin as it is really a good thing.

the only way you can encourage people to use bitcoin, is that it will grow with time. Because as a technology Bitcoin is no longer attractive and can not really improve the quality of life. This is indicated by his real problems with long processing of transactions and a large commission. Its network is not designed for such a large number of transactions.

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.

i started my local businesses with  accept BTC you will get less demand than other paying methods because people buy bitcoin to invest it more than using it in local things like local  businesses

Seems literally impossible now. There is no benefit for them and there will never be, other coins however could be implemented, other coins that actually work like a currency, something that bitcoin is not equipped to do right now. Fees way too high, transactions way too slow, volatility. Steam just dropped bitcoin as a payment for these reasons.
Well said if this problem still not solved for over some months bitcoin will be very hard to accept by local businesses even some international stores that accepting btc will drop this payment method because of very many problems facing right now by bitcoins much better to use altcoins like xrp or xlm with very low transaction fees.
For sure it is good to start from your closed are mean our family members who are not in favor of bitcoin and wasting their money in some other business then they should be bitcoin user if we will guide them well then it will give then more benefit. It is not tough to encourage anyone because bitcoin is now very common and people know about bitcoin so even small guidance will make high profit for them.

I think it's simple to encourage local businesses to accept Bitcoin now a days. Because crypto world use different strategy like social internet and media too. If you are a local business you need to evolve too like Bitcoin and other alternative coins as well. It's a demand to upgrade technology to sustain your online business for a future references. Simple, you need to evolve to survive.

It's not simple to encourage local businesses to accept bitcoin even for today. Not all of them are educated about modern technology and some are still skeptic about bitcoin. Although if the country or government your living in has approved the usage of bitcoin then that's a good initiative for anyone to start a conversation on a businessman about bitcoin and he'll take it lightly but seriously since it was advised.

This is really a good advocate and i hope the OP is still doing what he can to encourage local businesses to accept bitcoin and not only bitcoin but other cryptos as well, but in my opinion i think no one can force it to other industry but let them decide their own if they want to adopt the drastic changes in the society and technology with regards to cyptocurrencies.

Its gonna be hard af not even because of the huge transaction fee but because of the currency jumps. Immagine if the start accepting BTC. The price will change several times through the day. And I didn't mention legalization and government problems

Especially, I’m sure that you must have spend  much time and such a long process to do. It’s really not easy for you to gather local business to accept bitcoin nowadays. Although I think your idea is quite great but you know bitcoin’s market brings us more benefits as well as risky cause its volatile so there will suspect on it. But I think you should have a try on your plan, it may give you a big benefits if you are constant with your plan.

If they see the potential of earning more money that they are earning now they would definitely accept it.

For me, if you encourage a local business that is not educated like you've said in previous comment. It's totally problematic in the first place. Why you create or build local business if you are not educated in that particular business. Now a days, it almost 80 percent of local business use technology like computer and many more. So don't target those not educated because they will not understand it. I said it's simple cause if they are connected in internet they will easily understand it because of many facts about bitcoin.

Dealing with those businessman that are uneducated is going to be a problem to you but I doubt it that you'll be dealing with them about bitcoin or talking about it as them being an uneducated person. They will not into their position now if they are uneducated in the first place. Not only 80% of local businesses that are using technology but majority of them are.

Local businesses accepting bitcoin is only a matter of time. I believe when their competitors start accepting them, they will have no choice but to follow swift which will in turn trigger more businesses to start accepting the coin. I believe 2018 is a going to be phenomenal year concerning bitcoin acceptance with local businesses.
Exactly! All the small business get influence by the ones who are busy in doing some big business around the world. In addition to this, if the international market starts trading and accepting of bitcoin, then it will not be a very big deal to convince and encourage the ones who are sitting in the local business market to accept bitcoin. However, we do need to make them aware about bitcoin.

I think it's going to be more easy now because MCDonalds is confirmed accepting bitcoin so I'm sure big or small businesses will follow.
It is just a matter of time. I am very much sure that things will be in favor of bitcoin in the next coming days. All those who are sitting in local business market just wants to be sure that bitcoin will not disappoint them. Therefore, they are not taking such kind of step and are waiting for the things to get better. They will start accepting bitcoin after some time when they will realize the worth of bitcoin.
All these issues are quite temporary in nature and they will be resolved soon. bitcoin is having number of advantages and in comparison, between advantages and disadvantages, it will be advantages which will be taking lead over disadvantages. The best thing which all of us can do to promote the usage of bitcoin is to make people aware of bitcoin.

Talking about defects, everything and every system has the defects, but here we have to see is whether it is better than the one it is about to replace that is fiat currency? Then the answer is certainly Yes, because the bitcoin is working online and it is matching with the needs of the market according to the today’s environment. The defect will be cater for in longer run and talking about the fees, I think it depends more on the demand in the market.

I think the reason makes people don't believe in Bitcoin is the big lack of knowledges on the community. Teach them more about the blockchain, about the Bitcoin system and things gonna be better.

I get your point on lack of knowledge. But the thing is, there are others too who are knowledgeable enough yet they do not agree with the idea of Bitcoin per se. Hence, you cannot really equalize knowledge to agreement because in the end, you may or may not agree with one another regardless of the knowledge you have over a specific subject matter. We certainly have varying opinions and we cannot just take it out of context just because we think others are less knowledgeable about it.
