I think in my own opinion, we are not in the position of encouraging them to accept bitcoin, it is the function of government to do that because I know that no business man will want to go against any government law and as LOCAL as they are, they tend to avoid taking any risk of flouting a non-existent law. What I think we can do is to show them the benefits of BITCOIN and why it is in their best interest to accept and they are responsible for whatever follows.

Well in my own opinion, if a business man is going to try out with bitcoins it doesn't mean that you are going to fight against the local government.

Just tell them that don't worry for this is not an illegal act or activities instead this is a real currency that they are going to benefit in the future.

By simply explaining them basic background in bitcoin would suffice.

We can encourage local businesses to accept btc by information local businesses about what bitcoin is and how it will profit them aswell as the people if we all use it.
They have to see the advantages before actually accepting it cause it's all about the money.

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.
just tell to the local businesses shops the qualities about
the bitcoin . and tell them about its unlimited saving of
money without taxation . they will surely starts to accept
bitcoin .

Don't encourage them just let them decide by themselves with no pressure. We have to get bitcoin more known trough commercials etc.
If they see it trough ads they will look it up by their free will and they will see all the benefits and people using it so it will be very attractive.

Indeed don't put any of the pressure on them and let them decide for themselves if you do this then it's more likely for them to actually accept bitcoin and look more into it than when you pressure them to really check it out etc.

the advantages are their priority and actually they're only seeking for profit so if bitcoin was not good enough to make an additional profit for them most likeley they will not accepting it,the only way to encourage those local businesses to accept bitcoin is by making it popular around them so they will get into it automatically

Encouraging local businesses is not a thing for users of bitcoin to do, it will feel more like pressure cause you just want to use it.
They have to be informed via commercials for example and then they will find out about bitcoin and it's benefits.
Right, as they as want for know bitcoin just causing by their intention and not from the another people's advice and that's will not giving them pressure and i agree with it, and especially they will wanna for learning bitcoin caused by their intention.
I thought you did not need to push them. yeah I'm sure that one day many stores or local binsis will flock accept bitcoin. because they see the enthusiasm of many people using bitcoin, I'm sure sooner or later bitcoin will make them be interested. You do not need to force them to join

its true because for now, i think many store will be attract to receive bitcoin as their payment and bitcoin is really makes customer payment with easy and less fee of transaction. we can see that there is a third party that integrated with store online and used bitcoin as payment.
agree I think you do not need to push it to join and adopt a system of bitcoin. let them see the advantages and benefits of bitcoin. if they see it directly batapa great bitcoin and ease of shopping, I am very sure that you need not force him they would gladly adopt bitcoin

We can't really encourage local businesses maybe by spending more bitcoin etc so the prices circulate and it stays active.
But we need more bitcoin commercial and information spread out so that businesses could get a hold of this information much easier.

And this is the right way to encourage adoption, when I began on bitcoin no one needed to convince me of the great advantages of bitcoin I was able to see it by myself and after that I became hooked with bitcoin.

We can simply say that its better for them because they can control their own money and they can in that same time make profit too so I think that is just very nice.

For now we can not encourage them because they are just few users who are using bitcoin if they know many people are using bitcoin in their country they can also accept bitcoin as payment like brazil that has 150 stores or more are accepting bitcoin locally in any local business.

I also think that we should still not do this due to the fact that the bitcoin is still not far enough, I honestly hope that I can accept it as a business soon or later, if we want to encourage it we simply should make it more popular.

I think even though the government banned the use bitcoin it would not deter a person to use bitcoin, yeah but maybe it would create a barrier to the store or business to accept bitcoin. because of course they are under government control

simply because it could make them more profitable, but that does not mean we have to push and force them to join the bitcoin, because it would be very depressing. just tell them about the benefits if they accept bitcoin, I'm sure they will be joined by adopting bitcoin happily

You can encourage local businesses to accept bitcoin by providing information to those local businesses.
For example you could hand out info flyers with information about bitcoin pros and cons for businesses and a link for more information. They have to get to know more about it before they will accept it.

It will be difficult to really encourage local businesses to use bitcoin cause eventually we are just customers and not business advisors.
Somehow you have to get them to look up bitcoin for themselves something has to spark their interest about the options.

We can encourage local businesses to accept Bitcoin by informing them what bitcoin is and how it can be productive for their business.
As a business owner money talks so make the money talk and they'll join within a second if they see alot of ask for bitcoin payment method.

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

Yes I agree with this but as a customer of said shop it's very difficult to educate the owner of the shop about bitcoin.
They will be looking crazy if I walk in there trying to explain bitcoin, they'd probably think I would try to sell them something.

That could be a way to encourage adoption but the truth is unless there are enough users with bitcoin knocking at their doors then is very unlikely that doing something like that could encourage adoption.

Indeed if you have some examples on what kind of things it can really help you, you can really let them see how it works.
I think that if they know its a currency but on the same time profitable in most cases, they will step in or get interested.
