Star Trek Items for Sale – How to Make Money from Home
When it comes to being able to make money from home, one way is to have Star Trek items for sale, capitalizing on the 50th Anniversary of the franchise success. Known the world over in many different languages, Star Trek has been entertaining generations from young to old. I know for me personally, I started my “Trekkie” journey in the 1970s with the original TV series.
To Boldly Go…And Have Fun Making Money
From the original TV show starring William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk and all the way to the current 2016 cinematic crew with Chris Pine as Kirk, Star Trek continues to entertain Trekkies in every age group and demographic. And because of this there is a huge potential to make money from the success of the franchise.
Now you may be wondering how you could tap into some of this enormous amount of money that so many others are making, and that is what this blog post is about. I am going to show you a really easy and inexpensive way for you to make a lot of money every month from the comfort of your home.
Share your love for Star Trek & earn money
If you have been a fan of Star Trek since the original TV series like myself or you became a fan later on, if you enjoy talking about it, you can also earn a living from your passion for it. All you are going to have to do is write about your passion for the franchise and the numerous products associated with Star Trek.
Do you realize how many different products are available for people to collect and kids to play with? We are talking about tens of thousands and possibly more like hundreds of thousands, all from just one science fiction franchise. The only other sci-fi franchise that rivals Star Trek is Star Wars. But to give you a quick glimpse of the evolution of Star Trek, check out the video below.
Get paid for writing about your passion
Imagine getting excited about a new Star Trek collectible you just purchased, or perhaps you just went to see the new movie Star Trek Beyond and you wanted to blog about it. There are going to be millions of people who will be seeking information online via the search engines for Star Trek items and reviews. This is where you come in.
You can provide these millions of people all over the world with the information they seek, and at the same time earn money from that info. Let me give you a couple of examples. Let us say that you just purchased the new fully working Star Trek original series communicator replica from the Wand Company.
This is the first fully working wireless Bluetooth enabled handset, which can work paired to Bluetooth enabled mobile cellular phones. Think of how cool that would be to use it just like it was used back when the technology was truly science fiction. Well guess what? There are Star Trek fans all over the world that will want to know about it and buy it!
Make money from the Star Trek Beyond movie
Or perhaps you just viewed the latest movie and there are movie memorabilia that people are beginning to buy up at the stores. You could start writing reviews on what you thought about the movie and offer the opportunity for people to purchase items representing the movie from within your review! How can all of this work?
Quite easily once you get your website and blog set up. Now before you start procrastinating because you do not have the knowledge in how to build a website, I promise you, you will be able to build one without any experience. It will literally take you less than one minute to have yourself a ready to build website.
To Seek Out New…Technologies to Build a Website
I built this website without any knowledge of programming. What do you think of my creation? Yes it has come a long way since its first days, but I didn’t have to learn any kind of technical stuff to build it or get it up on the internet. That was all automatically done for me within one minute. I have a 3 minute video on my Site Rubix blog showing how quick and easy it is.
The point is that it is super easy to learn and get your own website and blog up and running, so you can take advantage of it and make money from the Star Trek franchise. The bulk of the work and effort you will have to do will be the writing of the content and sourcing of images and videos, similar to what I have done here in this post.
Just write about what you love
However if you have a passion for what you are writing about, you will have no problems in coming up with ideas on what to write. By using proper keywords, which is a process that is also made easier through the use of a keyword research tool, you can get your content to be found higher in the Google search results, then others with your same passion will find it.
By connecting with these people from all over the world, you can gain not only loyal followers but also customers. Okay, so you are probably wondering how you can turn your website blog readers from followers into paying customers. That too is also easy and will not require you to buy and ship any products.
Become an Affiliate of the Star Trek Store
The easiest and most lucrative way to make money in online marketing from anywhere 24/7/365 is by participating in Affiliate Marketing. The majority of retailers that sell online have what are called Affiliate Programs. What that means is that you can join their totally free program and become their affiliate by promoting their products on your website.
Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, you would just write about your passion for Star Trek or maybe write reviews about the latest movie or products. For example, one of my best friends Amechi Amanugi, is a HUGE Star Trek fan. The picture of collectibles all throughout this post are from his collection.
A brief example of how you will make money
Amechi is just one of millions of Star Trek fans the world-over. While writing this blog I asked him if he tried the new Bluetooth Communicator and if it worked, he replied, “Oh heck yeah! Works beautifully!” The cost is basically $150.00 and if you were able to sell it through the affiliate program you would make $7.50, and if your blog sold 100, well you can do the math.
But even selling 100 is a drop in the bucket to the millions of loyal Star Trek fans from all over the world who would want a fully working Bluetooth communicator. If you wrote a kick ass blog review about the communicator, Google would rank it highly in search results, people would see it, enjoy it and then purchase it from the Star Trek Store ad in your review.
Thousands of products to make money on
The example above is just from one item and from one store, but there are so many more available that you can leverage to make money from. When people are passionate about something they will more often than not spend a lot of money on it. Your job as an affiliate marketer is to create content that will help those people find what they want.
The majority of people that do research before buying a product, will seek out information from “Real People” instead of the stores and manufacturers. Real people will give real results. Now if they should come to your review and you should convince them that the product is worth getting, having an ad for the product being sold from the affiliate program will earn you money.
Affiliate marketing is a twelve billion dollar per year industry and growing. The majority of people who do affiliate marketing are stay at home people and many of them are making full-time income from it. Naturally this will not happen right away but it could and has happened within a year’s time, depending on how hard you work. Are you interested?

Now I’m kind of jealous that I didn’t think to start a website focused on Star Trek myself!
I’m such a fan, I’ve seen the original movie no idea how many times.
Actually, it’s probably a good idea that my site is not connected to Star Trek – I would have probably kept all the items for me instead of trying to sell them. They are priceless!
On this note, it never crossed my mind that there is an affiliate program on all thing related to Star Trek.
Thanks for sharing this article, it helped me to refresh my facts.
Hopefully, you will post some more on this topic. Or maybe on Star Wars?
Because I love this one as well.
You are welcome and I am happy you enjoyed this post. One thing that many people looking to start a niche website tend to overlook is that a niche can be practically anything. Even a TV or Movie series that has a big fan base and following is a niche.
I am a big science fiction fan and like you I have watched the original Star Trek movie countless times. “V-GER must join with the creator.” I have even watched the other movies at least 5 times each. I am only just getting used to the newest cast of the series.
Just like Star Trek, Star Wars would make a great niche for someone who is a fan. I will be doing a review of this niche and which affiliate programs are available in the near future. I will let you know when I do. These are both very profitable niche ideas.
This is a very informative website targeted at a very specific audience but also allows one to learn a lot of information about home businesses.
Thank you Jack. I am glad you like my website and all of the make money online opportunities that I have presented here for my website visitors to learn about. After personally experiencing success in online affiliate marketing and knowing about all of the many ways to earn residual monthly income, I just want to inform others on how they can get started for little to no money upfront.
I am a huge Star Trek fan, and have been wanting to start a site for quite some time. With masses amounts of merchandise to promote, things can get confusing. Would you recommend creating a site with a narrow niche, focused on communication devices for example, or props from the original series? Creating a general store with various categories is not focused enough is it? Also, since Star Trek is copyrighted, is it legal to use it in my domain name? Thanks!
I would suggest starting out narrow such as handheld collectibles that would consist of communicator, phaser, tricorder, etc. Or you could focus on Star Trek figurines and action figures. Basically yes, start out narrow and as time goes by and you start running out of things to write about, introduce a new category of products.
This is a great introduction to the world of an online revenue stream. Not only did you provide a glimpse to the possibilities of just one niche, you also opened the door to where anyone can learn exactly what you are doing, which is making money online. Thank you Robert for the sneak peek into the online world of Internet marketing.
You are welcome Ken. There are so many ways to make money online and the simplest way is in online affiliate marketing. All you do is to pick a niche that either you are passionate about and/or that others would be interested in. Being a Star Trek fan, and knowing many other people are too, I can target those people with my content on a Star Trek affiliate program that I am affiliated with.
When someone reads my reviews on various Star Trek items and makes a purchase from the affiliate marketing program, the Star Trek Store affiliate program will pay me a percentage of the order placed by my website reader. Though it does take some time to set up, the process of making money online is actually quite simple. Best part is that I do not have to sell and can make money 24/7.
That is quite a thorough teaching about Star Trek. I enjoyed the videos. You have given me and other people another product to do with affiliate marketing. It could be quite challenging to choose what product has a good affiliate program.
It seems from your discussion it is good because there a lot of fans of Star Trek which makes the potential of converting traffic high.
The other issue you have handled well is the worry of what and how to write. I find your post very informative thank you.
Thank you for your comment. I feel that to start out with the Star Trek collectibles niche it would be best to start focused on a particular type of collectible, and there are so many. For me, I would begin with the popular items from the original TV series like the handheld items such as Phaser Gun, Communicator and the Tricorder.
Then once I have written compelling content of those items I would focus on the newer generations of those three staple pieces of equipment to every Star Trek crew landing party. The possibilities are almost endless in items one can promote with their Star Trek affiliate marketing website.
This is a great idea and definitely something worth trying out if you enjoy the Star Trek series. Personally for me I’m not. However one of my mates is a die hard fan of the the TV series and I’m wondering if he’ll like to do it as a passion. Anyway I’ll send him to this page and see what he thinks.
I agree that not everyone is into Star Trek but for the rabbid fans of the franchise, a lot of money can be made. I personally know many fans that have hundreds of dollars, and sometimes more than a thousand dollars, of TV show and movie memorabilia. By being able to tap into that collectible fan base with an affiliate marketing program selling Star Trek items can be a huge money maker.
I never would have even thought about an affiliate program for Star Trek. So much useful information in this post and I had to watch the evolution of star trek all the way through – there were some great memories there. I so much prefered DS9 to NextGen – wish they had done some DS9 films rather than the focus on Next Gen – though the Borg were always the scariest foe out there. The original Star Trek was pretty groundbreaking. And the cast always looked like they were having a good time. When all the tribbles landed on Kirk, I would like to see that in the new films. I do enjoy the new films but the older ones were a lot more tongue in cheek humour.
I grew up on the original TV series and I used to know someone who organized Star Trek conventions around the country. I used to get a lot of cool items from him including personalized autographs to me from Uhura, Scotty, Chekov, and Dr. Bones McCoy. Unfortunately as I got older and have moved around, I lost those autographs.
But now through this Star Trek Store online affiliate program many people like myself can rebuild or build up their Star Trek collectibles. For those with the affiliate marketing website, providing Star Trek items for sale to the huge fan base, a lot of money can be made from fans like me and those even more into the franchise.
I agree. It would have been nice to see a DS9 movie and a little less of the Next Gen. But I am happy with the new versions of the Star Trek movies and I like how Spock has a relationship with Uhura…then again, who wouldn’t want that? LOL
Great post, this is some good information for those wanting to start their on online business. I really appreciate the completeness of information as well. I agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to start some free training. The paid services is well worth the money as well.
Thank you Jeremy. There is no better place online or offline to start an online affiliate marketing business in any niche possible than Wealthy Affiliate. The fact that you can start the training with a full getting started certification course and get 2 fully programmed WordPress websites all for free, is a true testament into why so many people succeed while taking their training. I have been a very happy member for 3 years and I have built 4 successful websites. I am seriously thinking of making my next one based on this Star Trek Store affiliate program.
This is a very informative website targeted at a very specific audience but also allows one to learn a lot of information about home businesses.
Thank you Maurice. I am happy you like my website and I purposefully made it to help people to find the correct way to make honest money online without getting scammed. I have a wide variety of posts with a broad amount of affiliate marketing programs that anyone can make money online from home. In this post I discuss how anyone can earn a living by just writing about a multitude of Star Trek products and at this link http://legitimatejobfromhome.com/category/money-making-ideas I provide other popular products that people can earn a full-time income from their home computer.
Wow, this right here shows that you can truly make money from nearly anything online. I’m not personally a major Star Trek fan, but this seems awesome for anybody who is interested in Star Trek, and shows all of the cool things you can write about to make money online.
This is true Carson, there really is a lot of things that a person can make money from with an affiliate marketing website. As long as there are people who are interested in what you wish to promote, through your blogging of what that product or service is, you will always have a market to make money from.
When it comes to Star Trek, there is a really big audience of fans from all over the world and in all age groups. The majority of them are old enough and more established in life with money to spend. This means that when you offer Star Trek collectibles and other franchise related items that people can buy from the Star Trek Store, you can make a full-time income in their affiliate marketing program.
Dang.. This will be a great niche to have. I love StarTrek. I even dream about having a family room design just like USS Enterprise bridge.
I will have to look up my schedule and see if I can write some articles about StarTrek.
You are welcome Arief and thanks for your comment. I too love Star Trek and have since I was a little boy back when it was William Shatner as Captain Kirk and Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock on TV every week. That show was one of my first TV shows that introduced me to the science fiction genre and I was hooked for life.
Because of its enormous popularity all over the world, Star Trek is one of the most popular TV and cinematic science fiction franchises ever created. This provides a huge potential for making money online from home with Star Trek items for sale, available only from the Star Trek Store and through an affiliate marketing website an online marketer can make a ton of money.
