The good we do introduce it to people who do not yet know . Teach them how to use it and explain to them that bitcoin is a very fast way of payment . We should teach them step by step how to use it and how they can be converted into cash . The principle should be that many of them can be put to the bitcoin .
it is not that easy as you said. it needs a lot of planing and need team work, I can teach some peoples in my family or my street (same everyone can do) but we cannot change the overall situation.. using bitcoin is very easy but only at the web,
but when it comes to local businesses the situaiton will get change completely.. and it can be only possible if big companies get involved in it to promote bitcoin in local businesses,
Yes you are right just thinking about it we need a hard work plan before we introduce it in many businesses. Bitcoin is easy to use in web and i think the big companies their no time to do it so encourage local business to use bitcoin is not easy. Maybe do they own research if bitcoin become popular in all country.

The infrastructure of the bitcoin payment is not fully built yet, so the shops accepting the bitcoin is still very few.

Its because the market and the bitcoins user are not totally wide and only few people around the globe are using this coin so thats why maybe thats the other reason why we see only few merchant are accepting bitcoins for now, but maybe in future if bitcoin craze will spread wider and will reach also to those not techy people and spread for more i think this massive adoption will gonna be grab by those merchant who follows bitcoin for now.

Encourage them by giving them information. The first step is for them to know what bitcoin is all about.
Then you'd have to prove or show that there's alot of people willing to use it in the shop, this will show the owners that adding this payment method will increase customer satisfaction and bring in more customers.

What if the government of that country haven't give permission to the citizens for using bitcoins? The things you are saying are absolutely right but they can be applied once the government announces that bitcoin is free to be used in the country so then you can convince a shopkeeper or a market owner with those words, otherwise it is not possible.

Yes and first we have to wait for the btc to be stable or steadily rising so they don't see the negative side of losing their money cause it drops quite often. Also we need alot of people using btc for it to be worth it to them. They will not put up a payment method just for it to be using once a month.

More promotion material and more information about bitcoin is the key. Let people learn about bitcoin themself and they will be sold eventually. The same thing happened to me.

you basically have to explain to them how bitcoin works, what are the benefits and the cons of it. Base on my experience i personally introduce it to one of my friend that has a business and during that time my knowledge was really not enough to explain it to him so it just end up to no deal situation.

encourage them by not selling bitcoin everytime it is at super high point this causes prices to be so unstable merching with the bitcoin and that scares off shop owners and also alot of them dont know anything about bitcoin so more bitcoin education and information and publicity would be a good start too not just for shop owners also for just customers cause they dont even have it most of the time.

Understanding bitcoin for someone who is not connected to internet or technology much is actually to hard because i tried it myself to make some people understand it but they might it too complex.

I would say that we can encourage them that with this type of method they can save a lot of effort and time if they are going to accept bitcoins as payment.

But we need to consider first in the place if there are already users of bitcoin because that is not going to help if there are few users only.

The problem is even the local businesses accepting bitcoin, not all people using bitcoin even in my country it's like no one using bitcoin except me. So, i think it's like a bit useless if the local busines accept bitcoin but the people not use bitcoin.

If we can make the bitcoin better we can already accomplish this most likely, the bitcoin needs to get more popular and than company's will automatically will accept the bitcoin.

Another thing we could do is explain why they have to use the bitcoin and this is simply because they can make profit with it if the bitcoin market is going up.

It will turn complicated if you teach them without supporting facts,articles,video or even social media groups related to bitcoin and if you have those mentioned present when you teaching someone i will be sure that they will understand bitcoin slowly, so better don't giveup  to the people you teaching to used it because it maybe usefull in the future since it can make the market for bitcoin go spread for more.

well you're actually could just use an explanation video that available on youtube so they will know it and i guess the video could explain better than us because that video was made with effort and being planned perfectly,sometimes if we explain to another people,they'll can't know what we're talking about due to different thinking

I think when trying to encourage a local business owner or even anyone to accept BTC as a mode of payment, you shouldn't jump to persuading them. Don't be like "Bitcoin is amazing, accept bitcoin now in your shop." Even if you're able to get into the mind of the shop owner and make him such a ditto head, if he don't understand how the whole Bitcoin concept works, then he shouldn't accept BTC.

First, you have to lecture him about how a wallet works, how to make his wallet secure, what is Bitcoin, what is the advantage and disadvantage of Bitcoin, stuffs like that. When he fully understand all of those, he can then decide if it'll be beneficial to him and to his shop if he accept BTC or not.

It is really hard for a local store to accept bitcoin if there are only few bitcoin users in that place. But that is still going to be an advantage.

Because you are just the only one store that is going to accept bitcoin, what you need to do now is to market bitcoin and introduce it to the people.

Once you have done that you are going to start out to run your business properly with bitcoin.

Yup if they try in overseas trade in the international business means it would spread among most of people and then if we have initializing mini Ecommerce or direct business which accepts with bitcoin means that will be good.

In one word education, those business owners need to realize that they are losing a piece of the action, so we must show them not only what bitcoin is, but how it can benefit them

to encourage them we need to have more people use it no? cause its all about what the customers want and if alot of customers want to pay with bitcoin i dont think a company wants to miss out money on that. So the plan would be to show them in a way that theres alot of people asking for this.
