First you need to get all the online retailers to start accepting bitcoins and then spreading the word out in the local business industry. Maybe workshops and seminars might help with this, online you can stream a seminar on youtube or any other video streaming site and out in the public you can invite people from the business industry to attend too.

I also think that we first need to have a lot more online stores accepting the bitcoin only on that we can also encourage other locally company's.
The bitcoin also needs to get more used before this is gonna happen!
yes that is also a fact. and our area that is such a difficult job i think because in our are the local business men are mostly ignorant and they do not have any idea about computer and internet. they also have no idea about bitcoin. so it is really a difficult job.

you might be right,but i think i would say it other way.
They are ignorant,but you need to not forget about that it is not probably worth to launch something like this,if their client's even dont ask about bitcoin,why should they do something like this? stupid idea right? hahaha

Local businessmen are not dealing with the internet too much. Which is why millions of local shops dissapear and will keep dissapearing. They can't compete with the internet shops, since internet shop are cheap and have less cost (of a prime location in a shopping mall f.e).

This. After a while, they asked merchants that had started accepting bitcoin how many customers were still paying in bitcoin. It seems after an initial burst of spending, the novelty wears off and people go back to spending fiat. This was seen in UK, and that little town that had the 'bitcoin bowl'.

I think you can explain that bitcoin is money and it is simple, new innovation and more safe than reversible services payment are like paypal, skrill and neteller. With use bitcoin it will take costumers from another countries not local only.

If their business is running on fiat, it will really take a long time to consider adding bitcoin payment as an option since price fluctuates and $1 value of bitcoin is not $1 value in just few days.

This kind of system required a brainstorming on how a merchant will deal with bitcoin's active price fluctuations.

That is right. In order for the bitcoin price to be stable so that more people will use it, we need some price stability mechanism.

The best idea to encourage local businesses to accept btc for me is just show them how many of their
customers use/earn in bitcoins,they could be really amazed and implement bitcoin payments,and that would be really cool!

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.

How do you go about approaching them and what is it with you?
Those businesses may ask this question to you, so will you earn too if they adopt BTC when they are selling noodle soap on the streets? But then halving them use Bitcoin can certainly help spread the word about bitcoin and the Economy.

I have a simple solution.
Just hire one person more in you're business,which would ask people about if they would like to pay here
with bitcoin's,online or at the shop.
It is not hard to get research,right? At least that what i think.

It is difficulty to pay the goods in the shop. The confirmation time is too long. It can only be used online.

Maybe in the future these confirmations will be <10 minutes. But for now this is a problem for stores that has a long line of customers.

First you need to introduce bitcoin, some merchants don't know what bitcoin is and more probably in third world countries that I'm living. Just plan to start first to give waiver that states what is bitcoin and if they want to know visit the specific address and date, like having an event. Then have the event on an area where more people is use to walk and maybe they can notice you and listen to you.

 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..

This is effective if you working in a merchant company then you will show some proposals.

But if you are just a normal person requesting it in a merchant, then it will goes thru a hard way before they will hear your concern.

You can also do an online group for businesses that want to know about bitcoin. Ask them first and make them know what's the benefit of bitcoin for them, once they got curious give them time to meet you and explain all the things that they need to know.

I agree, I've been in BPO industry before and what we do is to call a person that owns a certain business, unfortunately we can't talk that long because the guy has a full load on his time so he can only have 2 minutes of conversation, they don't even have time to sit in front of their computer.

The best way to encourage local businessness is just showing them that bitcoin is known very good.
It is popular,many people uses it and it is fairly great to pay for anything.
Isn't just perfect for them?
