How to Buy a Star?

Here’s a great idea for an online business I ran across the other day.how much is a star

Just imagine if you could own a piece of the heavens. Seriously.

The fact is no one really “owns” space. Nor could they really.

And that’s the beauty of this business idea.

How would you like to buy a star?

Yeah, get a certificate and everything proving your ownership of a star!

How cool would it be as a gift for your wife or girlfriend? So unique!

Or how about buying a star on the day of the birth of your child? One of the coolest keepsakes I can think of.

And it’s not like you’ll ever run out of stock!

There are billions of stars in our galaxy alone. You could sell a million stars to every person on the planet and still never use .00000001% of your stock.

Now that’s a business idea.

And yes, there are plenty of people that are actually buying these stars as well as plenty of websites selling them. Just Google “Buying a Star” to get an idea.

But that doesn’t mean you couldn’t get something similar off the ground.

You could start with your friends and family. Hopefully they’ll love the idea and start spreading the word.

Or target people around you with fliers and old school gorilla marketing tactics. It really doesn’t matter.

What you’re trying to do is get your idea and “business” out there for everyone to see.

A great place to start with a business like this would also be social media. People love to share unique and interesting stuff.

The biggest hurdle I see is making your “Owner Certificates” standing you from every one else’s.

Here are a few ideas I thought of off the cuff…

They would need to look official, something like an official looking seal would really help. Maybe one that you could get made up as a rubber stamp and then stamp each one individually.

And use the color red or some other “bold” color to really stand out and add depth to the certificate.

Make the paper nice and heavy. Like the kind of paper your diploma is printed on.

There would be nothing that would let me down after my purchase than receiving some thin piece of copy paper as my certificate. It just screams cheap and “unofficial”!

If you can master the art of calligraphy, you can always do the entire certificate by hand. Obviously this is something you would need to charge quite a bit of money for to make it worth your wild.

But I’m sure some people would go for the “VIP” package.
