There is already a discussion thread, "What's your way of spreading Bitcoin knowledge?" Most of the answers are centered around sharing bitcoin knowledge directly with friends/family or through social media.

Now let's make it a bit broader. Apart from social media, what innovative or out of the box marketing ideas can be used to promote bitcoin. It is not necessary that you are using this idea, but you think that an idea like this would be helpful to make more people aware of the existence of bitcoin.

Bitcoin is not a brand, but brands associated with bitcoin are promoting it through TV commercials so it is an effective way to promote bitcoin. Some of the other ideas would be:

1. Bitcoin clothing, wear bitcoin T-shirts.
2. Handing out bitcoin pamphlets locally.
3. Asking local vendors if they accept bitcoin.
4. Organizing bitcoin themed parties, be it birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion.Yeah, this might be expensive, but each and every guest would come to know about bitcoin.
5. Local bitcoin treasure hunt, find hidden bitcoin. I have seen some treasure hunt threads on this forum.

Whatever you do, choose a way to promote bitcoin which won't lead to your real world identity. Anonymous ways like stickers/graffiti are ok but wearing a bitcoin t-shirt might cause problems. A rare possibility but can happen.

Some ideas they are doing, it was not so affective. Some other ideas is so expensive so that no one wants to hold them, one of another reason is that there's not many Bitcoin users in therir place so they don't want to hold that kind of promotions.

1. i find this weird LOL
2. this is not bad, if you have the time
3. this is the best option but it needs 2 things first. first is the customer or people who already hold bitcoin to want to spend it in that local vendor and the other is the regulation rules, for example what the government says about bitcoin, what are the taxes, ...
4. i have actually done this once when price went up the first time. i used the profit to throw a party
5. this takes a lot of innovation and i lack the talent  Roll Eyes

adding 6. tipping on social media. when changetip was around it was a good way of tipping others bitcoin and introducing them to bitcoin.

Another very simple way would be to post the bitcoin symbol with the address of a website that explains what is bitcoin at the gas stations

Give lectures in the communities to explain what is bitcoin, this would be very effective

A great way to promote anything is t-shirts.

People LOVE T-shirts.

Also, they will even PAY YOU to ADVERTISE for you. LOL

So to answer the question directly, my suggestion is personal wear such as t-shirts, hats, etc.

Hope this makes sense.

The best way to promote bitcoin.
Step 1- Accept the Segwit Proposal.
Step 2- Fees will decrease significantly
Stel 3- Now you could easily use bitcoins for buying real items, etc.
Step 4- When people see you using your money with such low fees no matter you send money foreign, they will adopt bitcoin technology.

Outcome - Bitcoin use will be more than ever.

It is very difficult to explain to people what bitcoin is if for promotion use t-shirts. People may not even understand the concept of bitcoin, but if he will be able to earn with bitcoin it's much quicker to become a supporter of crypto currencies.

There are lots of ways definitely. But I think only a few or some are really effective. some methods might come up as "spammy" or sort of like a moneymaking scheme. I like the method of asking local vendors if they accept bitcoin though.

Here are some I think are most effective (in no particular order):
  • Asking vendors if they accept bitcoin
  • Bitcoin events/conferences
  • Bitcoin guest presentations on colleges
  • TV/radio appearances
  • actual stores accepting bitcoin/crypto; with a big "accepting bitcoin" sign

If someone is store/shop owner, could create sales, like if you spend X dollars in items or if you buy X items pricing Y dollars you receive some satoshis as gift... So people will ask: what is satoshis?

Surely not so big amount of satoshis, as it's very valious, just a little amount to make people aware about Bitcoins. If they want more they must buy it or earn online. The only problem is that it doesn't worth to move little transactions as the fees are too high, it disturbs a lot the Bitcoin marketing.

You have got a nice seller platform there, a wide variety of categories to choose from. The site is not fully launched yet, worldwide delivery, guess it varies from seller to seller.

Quote
All payment are made in the USD value of bitcoin, both from the buyers and sellers
.

There might be sellers who would prefer to receive payments in BTC.

You are based in China, but what is Islamic store directory?

Quote
If you have a query relating to a specific product, please contact the seller by visiting the sellers Islamic store page. You can locate the sellers store from the product page or by searching for the seller in the Islamic Store Directory.

Bitcoin needs more platforms like this. Good luck with your website.

Sorry, but most of the options you have with email marketing are almost the same as spamming. I really doubt that's a good way to 'advertise' Bitcoin.
The best way to promote Bitcoin are stores accepting it and mainstream news outlets writing positive articles about it, imo.

1. Bitcoin clothing, wear bitcoin T-shirts.
2. Handing out bitcoin pamphlets locally.
3. Asking local vendors if they accept bitcoin.
4. Organizing bitcoin themed parties, be it birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion.Yeah, this might be expensive, but each and every guest would come to know about bitcoin.
5. Local bitcoin treasure hunt, find hidden bitcoin. I have seen some treasure hunt threads on this forum.
Nice thinking but let's just analyse your idea :
1. Bitcoin clothing : Now making a custom t-shirt isn't cheap at all or doesn't really last long. There are some stores which sell bitcoin clothing but the price is as high as 0.02 for a freakin bitcoin cap and 0.06 for a t-shirt. I mean seriously why would i spend 150$ on a normal t-shirt which has bitcoin written on it.
2. Handing out pamplats : Another waste of time and paper. What are you gonna do with one paper write about bitcoin it's growth , how to buy , it's future. Worst idea ever who even reads most of these or does the research. Giving 1000 papers will get you one 0.02 btc investor. Totally worth it.
3. Local vendors to accept bitcoin : This idea feels a bit more realistic to me as i say a new app for making payments couple of times in the store and finally ended up using that apo for making payments. This idea has potential.
4. Party for explaining bitcoin : What will i even get with this a 20$ increase in price by spending 500$ on a party. Just imagine why would someone even spend their money advertising something which doesn't give them anything.
5. Just waste your bitcoins.
Conclusion : Bitcoin is getting famous daily stop wasting your money the media will mostly do it for free.

Since bitcoin is a currency, the best way to do its markete is to maximize its used. If the other people sees that someone is using this currency and are more being convenient then it may lead to conversion

There are a couple of ways to promote bitcoin to be more popular among people, one of the best way is to encourage more well established and reputable E-commerce websites to accept bitcoin as payments, this would definitely attract more users to get interested in bitcoins. Another way might be going towards social media, with more positive news about bitcoin being spread around social media, it would definitely create more publicity over the long term.
