Alright! So you’ve been practicing as a superhero for a little while and, slowly but surely, you have been building a community of fans who eagerly follow your accomplishments and carefully keep track of everything you’re doing. It is now time to turn that fame into money and make a living of your profession. To help do that, I have prepared a list of 5 items that will make a fortune out of your face. Let’s get right into it!
1. Tote bags
Classic stuff right here. However, don’t be fooled by the apparent lack of originality of the idea: if tote bags are all over the place, that’s because they sell like hotcakes. People love to do shopping with your head on their bags to remind themselves that, whatever happens, a small part of you is right here to protect them (not literally). Come on, stick your face on those bags and sell them out.
2. Action figures
Action. What better word to describe what people love about you. Well, with a scaled-down and (somewhat) affordable version of yourself, younger and older kids alike will be able to recreate that action they remember and care so much about. Also, to get the most out of this idea, you should consider editing figures of your greatest enemies too.
3. Comic books
Sure, this one is a bit outdated on paper. Nowadays, people watch TV more than they read books. That being said, a lot of fans and collectors would strive to get their hands on hand-drawn versions of your most memorable exploits. So, don’t miss out on this opportunity.
4. TV show
Setting up your own TV show calls for quite a bit of fund. But if you can manage to find an editor or a couple of investors, then you that you have a ticket for luxury. Although TV shows might not seem like a great way to make money by themselves they will draw all the attention to the person who has the starring role (in our case, you) which will result in more sales from other goodies.
5. Theme park
We are finally getting into the really big stuff here. This one is aimed more towards well-established superheroes with a fanbase exceeding tens of millions of people. If you identify yourself as one of these heroes, then you might be wondering why in the world you would need a theme park. The answer is simple: a theme park, like the icing on the cake, is the expression of your success, the incarnation of your supremacy. If you ever have the fame and the money, then make yourself a favor and build that theme park.
I wish you to succeed
There you go, heroes! Your 5 best merch items to sell for profit. Although some of you might find it unethical for a promoter of virtue to go for money, you have to remember that your fans probably want to buy stuff from you anyway. So it’s a win-win condition.
