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.

Yeah and i think this is the most important area to improve asap on. Because once they start accepting then bitcoin will start to really blossom like it should but it cant yet because of this reason.

before we introduce bitcon into people, i think we should give them an explaining about bitcoin and we can give them an example of how to using bitcoin and make any transaction with easy. it should need hard work and there is no one can do without other people. so maybe you can make little group with your friends which using bitcoin and start to make a community and make meeting discussion group and ask people to join, then in that meeting group you can tell them about bitcoin. its really need hard work to do this but after you success, then people in your city will appreciate to you and make bitcoin as payment soon.

It is all about proper impartation of or knowledge about bitcoin and we have to educate them very precisely on what are the benefits that they can get if theycarw going to use bitcoin as a payment

To educate about the bitcoin, that can be easily done in that here in forum itself. I would suggest you to adopt the bitcoin as payment in your business. That would only motive the people around you easily instead of educating.

proper approach regarding to bitcoin potentials and easy to use payment system will let them be attracted to use this service, as bitcoin already been popular over the net you can inform them that this could be the next big thing in the future, give them idea that btc is also just like atm and credit cards.

For me it is much easy, we should have to invite our friends and our relative for to use bitcoin and have to advise them to invite other peple also and when these people will use bitcoin then we will find some people to use bitcoin with, and after that it will get promote more and when we will need to buy any thing with bitcoin and we will not find them then we can ask them for exchange.

We can encourage them by using more bitcoin overall and getting them more knowledge about bitcoin. For example if you know the shop owner you could just have a chat about bitcoin and what it can mean for him and his customers. They have to be educated about it.

I think we just keep on using bitcoin and this is already a kind of support for this program. If we do continue to grow then it may be way for those investors to settle down and think if it is really worth it to invest into crypto currency since the community is getting wider and the opportunity of gaining profit is really enough.

True we as users don't have that much power to make bitcoin more useable in stores. Cause we simply don't have the power for that.
But if we would see more commercials invovling bitcoin businesses and more businesses which are focused around btc then it will get more popular by itself.

Encourage local businesses by asking them about bitcoin and if they will accept it in the future like this you'll get to know if they even know what bitcoin is.
Most shop owners don't know bitcoin yet and they should cause it can be profitable for them, we need more publicity.

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" .
There are allot of big companys introducing bitcoins so maybe if they are seeing that smaller companys are also willing to introduce it only if the bigger companys making profits with it other wise they wont.

Even if you teach them precisely and tell them every benefits or advantages or using bitcoin still they wont be able to use it as a payment system until the government of that county legalize it, because they would be afraid if the authorities come to know they might seal them for using it if it is not yet legalized.

Asking them isn't enough and if there are only few queries about the concern then it will not be prioritized.

As long as bitcoin have an unstable price, our suggestions and advices to the store owners will not be taken seriously.

By reducing expenses for them if they start accepting BTC or giving them a bonus percent of your purchase.I think that will encourage them accept BTC

How can you reduce expenses for the merchant?  Unless you are a supplier, you can  cut your profit and give discount to them.  Or if you have lots of Bitcoin and sell this merchant discounted BTC or if they accept bitcoin, you buy them higher than the exchange.  And remember, in setting up bitcoin payment, you need extra tools for it.  You  need internet, gadgets and it needs both the buyer and seller to be able to connect to the network and complete  the transaction.  there are great ideas but the problem is the fund to support it.  Maybe we can start with bitcoin education drive.
Well,this has to be by the politicians,the governors,they have to reduce the expenses,but they have to be willing to make BTC a more popular means of payment
Politicians and bankers don’t like bitcoin and we should never expect that to change, bitcoin will need to grow by itself without the aid of those two sectors.

Encourage local businesses by showing them facts. If everybody keeps selling their bitcoin when the prices just raises by a little then bitcoin will never retain it's value.
If the value is low then business owners are not interested to learn this concept and use it in practice.

Introduce them what bitcoin is and the advantage of using it in their business. its not going to be easy to encourage them especially if its not popular in the consumers. i think the easiest thing to do is gather some business owners and set a seminar to introduce them the benefits of having bitcoin.

Politicians and bankers don’t like bitcoin and we should never expect that to change, bitcoin will need to grow by itself without the aid of those two sectors.

Maybe they don't like it for now but what if the market of bitcoin users will spread more and more? Do you think they will still hate it? And i really think they will come and join to build up some laws and business to grab those oppurtunities and benifits of this coin and maybe we can see some banks will accept if bitcoin user will be more and increasing daily so i think those two sector will get used to it if they see bitcoins great oppurtunities upon existence and they can help to market bitcoins aswell if they will join to.

Well its a very profitable market and there are no real fee's too so that is nice when you are accepting it if you are asking me.
Another nice fact is that it can be used everywhere and that you can make profit with just holding it as a business.

It just wont happen at least not any time soon, there is no way right now for local business to accept bitcoin, it doesn't even make sense for them to do it, I don't really see any benefits for them, it's just extra trouble and work for no reason, they can easily lose money just with bitcoin volatility.

I might don't understand the content of your post but you think local businesses will care for holding bitcoins? Again, "business". Their operation is on daily basis so money here is in and out.

Also I don't see any nice fact about "it can be used everywhere".

Bitcoin is not that popular as many people think it is. Some countries dont even have proper electricity and let alone internet connection. Moreover, e-commerce giants are few of those that accept bitcoin here and none of the local markets/shops/stores have ever heard of it. It very tough to get it accepted by everyone and I think the governments must work it.
