AUDIENCE ANALYSIS

What does the audience like?

LIKE

True crime stories about young children

This audience enjoys watching true crime stories about young children. Especially since this target audience consists mainly of mothers. They actually find it shocking to watch, and their feelings about this go all over the place but still they want to watch it. Same thing as watching a horror movie, you know it's not going to be ''fun'' but still you want to watch it.

LIKE

Poor police investigations

That they love child crimes is a fact, and if they notice that the police didn't do a great job during the investigation, you will definitely see this reflected in the comments. They are very frustrated when they realize that a certain case could have been prevented and express their feelings about this in the comments.

LIKE

Mom support moms

As I mentioned earlier, this target audience consists mainly of mothers. They believe that in this world their children are not safe anymore and want to warn and protect each other in the comments.

AUDIENCE ANALYSIS

What does the audience not like?

not like

Not mentioning the victim by name

I have seen several comments about this. This audience does not appreciate it when you name the victim in your script as 'the girl.' They don't get a good feeling about this and some people even find it disrespectful.

not like

'Bad' script

This is a very important comment, because he indicates that he watches a lot of other crime channels. These viewers are the most valuable and you would prefer to keep them on your video as long as possible, so I would definitely take his advice. And I get what he means, some scripts can look like a wikipedia article with words that don't match well when the narrator is doing his story. Keep it simple and don't use too many words like this.

Competition ANALYSIS

These channels are showing potential for this niche.

During my video analysis of this competition channel Time of Crime, I saw a lot of things that we can improve here. In the video analysis I will go a little more into detail about this, but the greatest improvement is in using good hooks and the right sound effects. Especially in this crime niche is it important to apply this, so that the viewer will experience different emotions while watching the video.

One channel that does this very well is Unseen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTALDHP482o&t=82s


We also see on Unseen that the most popular videos are about children, so that's another confirmation that there is a large audience that likes to watch true crime about children.
Look closely at their editing style, listen to what happens when they move from the intro to the story. Listen to the background music, the sound effects, the hooks they use and and then take a look at the competition channel Time of Crime. You see the difference?

00:00

Straight to the point

This is really getting straight to the point. No boring intro, and starting directly with the storytelling. With this, you immediately give the viewer the value they are looking for, and the chances are very high that the viewer will continue to watch. Very strong start to the video!

00:07

Real footage

I know this is reflected in almost every niche, but that doesn't make it less important. Especially in this niche, it is important to show a lot of real footage. People love true crime, so they want to see real footage. The more, the better.

7:33

Real footage of the interrogation

If you have a topic where there is footage of the interrogation, I would definitely put it in your video. This is great because you can pause the voice over for a moment and the viewer will hear his real voice. Something the Unseen channel often does as well. This keeps the video from becoming so monotonous, and allows the viewer to get even more into the story.

Don'ts

00:18

Don't show this at the beginning of the video

Instead of showing this channel logo which adds absolutely no value to the viewer to this video, I would change these few seconds to a very triggering hook with an thrilling soundeffect so they have almost no choice but to continue watching the video. Nobody will watch this video because they want to stare at this logo for a few seconds, so I would leave this part out completely because it doesn't add anything.

00:15

No sound effects

If there is a niche where you can use good, thrilling sound effects, then it's in this niche. This is very important so that the viewer is going to experience a lot of different emotions while watching the video. Take the channel Unseen as an example. Their video editing is very good, and if you listen carefully to the background music you will also notice that there is a big difference between intro and story. Make sure you make the intro terrifying to watch, and you can only do that if you use good hooks combined with an thrilling sound effect.

12:02

Bad transition

Just to explain a little bit about this video: this is a video with multiple crime cases, a total of 3. Only case 1 has an weird open ending because out of nowhere the script moves on to case 2 and then to case 3. When I was watching this video, and case 1 came to an end I almost wanted to click away from the video. I was even slightly irritated because it was such a 'weird open ending.' In the end, all these 3 cases are connected to the same killer. I think if the transition from case 1 to case 2 had been clearer and better, more people would have continued to watch. As an example:

Hook 1: But if you thought this was the worst, this story gets even weirder... Because 4 years later ... *continue story

Hook 2: But this was not the end of this story, because it gets even worse... Because 4 years later.... *continue story

Hook 3: And if you thought this was the end, then you're wrong... Because 4 years later... *continue story

This lets the viewer know that case 1 continues while talking about case 2 without feeling like case 1 had an open ending and I think that's exactly what we want to create.

TITLE RATING

Title analysis

Time Of Crime

Used title 1

Hard to Believe it Happened in REAL LIFE, But it's <span class="text-color-orange">On Camera.</span> One of the <span class="text-color-orange">Craziest Cases</span> <span class="text-color-red">EVER</span>

People are probably clicking on this title because of the phrase 'but it's on camera' because the target audience prefers true crime/real footage. However, the title is too long, and most people do not read it all, therefore I would recommend keeping your title short and going with something like this:

What This KILLER Did On Camera SHOCKED Everyone!

When a Child Murderer GOT CAUGHT On Camera!

Time Of Crime

Used title 2

He Thought he was Smarter... The Case With the Most <span class="text-color-orange">UNEXPECTED Twist</span> <span class="text-color-red">EVER</span>

When I saw this title, I got the idea that the title wasn't completely finished. I miss a second part which belongs to the sentence: ''He thought he was smarter'. I would build this title differently, and do something like this:

When The SUSPECT Thinks He's Smarter Than The POLICE

And use the word "unexpected twist!" for the thumbnail instead of on the title.

Time Of Crime

Used title 3

He's Been <span class="text-color-orange">HIDING</span> in Plain Sight for <span class="text-color-red">15 YEARS.</span> Then <span class="text-color-red">One</span> Detail Helped to Solve this <span class="text-color-orange">INSANE Case</span>

This title is all right but with a little touch up work you'll have a more triggering one:

Child Murder HIDES for 15 YEARS, Then this HAPPENS!

Curiousity
Urgency
Titles

Good titles contain emotional trigger words that ensure that a viewer will click your video. Emotional trigger words can be divided into 3 categories:


Curiosity (Words like: Banned, Exposed, Hidden, Illegal etc.)

Urgency/Unique: (Things like: Numbers, Limited Timed, Days etc.)
Titles: (Things like: Job titles, Family relations, Famous names etc.)

THUMBNAIL RATING

Thumbnail analysis

Time Of Crime

Used thumbnail 1

✅ Showing the picture of the young victim

Normally I'm not a fan of putting 'non-famous people' on the thumbnail, because it doesn't add value, but in this niche it really does because the target audience are parents and are looking for crimes about children. So to put a teenager, toddler or baby on your thumbnail is a great idea!

Time Of Crime

Used thumbnail 2

✅ Real footage but..

This thumbnail now has over 800K views, and I think that is also because of this thumbnail. This thumbnail can trigger a lot because we see a young girl on the left, and real footage of the interrogation on the right. This is a very good combination to use on your thumbnail and exactly how I would make my own thumbnails in this niche. The only thing I'd change is the text because a question does not trigger. Statements are more triggering, therefore terms like CHILD MURDERER, GOT CAUGHT, MURDERED HER! would be far more triggering.

Time Of Crime

Used thumbnail 3

✅ Thumbnail divided in 3 parts

All of their thumbnails have the same thumbnail style. Face on the left, real footage on the right and a text on top. These thumbnails are easy to follow, and I would recommend using the same style.

Time Of Crime

Used thumbnail 4

YOUR VIDEO

Topic example

Where can I find topics?

I took a look at Google and found this list on Wikipedia of American child murders: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_murdered_American_children

TikTok is also a great place to look for content because most of the time they have figured out the story for you already. This channel has done lots of cases: https://www.tiktok.com/@truecrimewithalex?_t=8jGyk05Aevp&_r=1

I would pick a case from one of these, and I would do some more research on that specific case. For example, how much content you can find (think of pictures, videos, interrogations, news broadcasts, names, and any other details that are interesting) and if any competition channels have done that topic already. When a topic has been done too much, I would pick another case from the list.

Topic

I saw the story of Louise Parton on TikTok. A mother and sex worker who killed her two daughters, with shocking details like as CCTV footage, a 991 call, images of her children and herself, and Facebook posts. These elements are critical to creating a interresting story.

How to create your titles?

I chose this title format, which you can customize by following these steps:

When [TRIGGER WORD + SUSPECT] [SHOCKING EVENT THAT HAPPENED]

When CHILD KILLER Got Caught On Camera!

When CHILD MURDERER Thinks He's Smarter than Police!

YOUR VIDEO

Thumbnail example

How to create your thumbnail?

I started by searching Google for a photo from CCTV footage that could be labelled as their "last moments". This image is important because what we learned from our analyses is that people are triggered by things that are "caught on camera". So by using a screenshot of CCTV footage will trigger a lot

I simply typed in the name of the mother and started clicking on pictures, and then I found this picture:

Then I started looking for a picture of the murdered child. It must be a picture of the child simply looking into the camera, as we learned from our research that images of children on thumbnails work quite well. Again I typed in the name of the mother and I found this picture:

I really like this picture as well because it creates a family feeling. And when you find out her mother killed them, you will be hardly triggered.

What did I do?

  • Background image: As you can see, I zoomed in and only showed the child. Why I did it is because the image on the right already contains two faces, which is a major trigger point. There was a lot going on in the background image, and we learned that we only want three trigger points to keep the thumbnail easy to follow. And simply showing the child running somewhere, together with the text, will raise a lot of questions
  • Text: I chose the use the text "LAST MOMENTS" because that assumes that this CCTV footage was one of the last moments of that child which will raise a lot of questions
  • Picture: I chose not to cut out the picture like the competition is doing rather to create a polaroid effect around the picture. Cutting off an image removes a lot of emotion. For example, in this picture, if you took them out, the Christmas tree would be gone, which is a wasted opportunity. Also, polaroid photographs create a nostalgic feeling of memories, which triggers more emotion.

This is one of the older niches from Faceless Niches. And because of that, we cannot guarantee that all of the data in this niche is still relevant today. You can see in the competition analyses when we updated this niche last.

Before diving into any niche on Faceless Niches, we always suggest doing your own research as well. But because this is an older niche, it is even more important to do that.
