AUDIENCE ANALYSIS

What does the audience like?

LIKE

Appreciation, honors and respect

This target group indicates several times that they appreciate the channel because they feel that the deceased are not forgotten in this way. It is a very loving audience, even if they do not know the persons in the video they will still express their condolences.

LIKE

Memories

The audience of this niche is a bit older as you can see. I see many comments where people name their own age, and that they get memories from watching videos like this about the 'good old days.'

LIKE

AUDIENCE ANALYSIS

What does the audience not like?

not like

Bad research

Good research in this niche is very important.  Especially since in this niche we talk about people who passed away, you will be more likely to be called on it if you haven't done the proper research.

not like

Missing on ''the list''

There may be discussions among videos if people feel their idol has not been mentioned in the list.

NOT LIKE

Bad pronunciation

Good pronunciation/a good voiceover is very important in this niche. What happens to you if you are watching a video about your idol, and that name is mispronounced? Chances are you'll be gone immediately.

Video analysis

Do's

Click on timestamp

00:20

Using real photo's of the case

Real photos, real videos, real newspaper articles are always super essential to have in your video. My advice is to collect as many of these as possible to make your video the best it can be. People love real footage, even if the quality is not that good. It's about people seeing something real. After all, that's a big reason why people are on Youtube instead of Netflix. Because with Youtube, they can see real footage, from real true stories.

00:23

Naming the cause of death

Throughout my research, I came across several comments from people who said they liked knowing the cause of death.

Don'ts

00:00

Bad intro

The first 5 seconds of your video are crucial because that is when people decide whether or not they want to watch your video. Anyone who has clicked on the video wants to get what he has clicked on as soon as possible, or else they will leave. People will drop off quickly if you start with a general intro and then talk about what your channel is about. Just start with the case; the rest of the introduction is unnecessary.

00:00

Boring video editing

No background music, long clips, no transitions, sound effects, I can go on forever on this part. There is so much room for improvement here, but I think everyone can see that, even if you're a beginner.

01:52

Tribute

Normally, I'd say delete this section because there's almost nothing going on (because it's a tribute), but that also leaves a lot of room for people to leave because they're getting not triggered in any way. But maybe this is something that people really appreciate in these videos, so you should try it out and see what happens in those moments in your AVD statistics.

02:11

REALLY IMPORTANT LESSON: Transitions

Transitions between cases are now typically in the form of a "top 10" list. For example, they might start with one case and then move on to the next by saying something like this: Number 2, (celebrity name), and then continue the story. First of all, I want to say that this is not necessarily wrong, but I believe there is a much better method. If you have multiple cases in a single video, try to combine them into a single story. As an example, your first case ends like this: ''His contributions to the industry will never be forgotten" What this channel currently would say to go to the next is something like: "Number 2, (celebrity name)" but if you change the transition to something like this: ''His contributions to the industry will never be forgotten" But if there is anyone who will never be forgotten for what he has done in the past, it is *name of celebrity*.

By doing this, people won't even realize they're in the next story. Which means your video will be watched for much longer and get better results. (this is also why I would delete the tribute part because you can do it otherwise).

TITLE RATING

Title analysis

Some titles are fine, while others are completely misplaced. This channel clearly does not understand what they are doing, so there is much room for improvement here.

Tribute Channel

Used title 1

<span class="text-color-red">11</span> <span class="text-color-yellow">BIG STARS</span> Who <span class="text-color-orange">DIED</span> <span class="text-color-red">Today</span> & Recently | 2023

This title is fine, and I can see how it worked because the idea of 11 famous people dying on the same day sounds shocking. If you structure your titles like this, there's not much to improve besides deleting "recently and 2023", I think that doesn't add much. So I'd recommend trying it out because it works for this channel. What's important for this structure is that you use big numbers that sound shocking in combination with today, and you can replace the words "Big Stars" with any other trigger words like "celebrities," "famous actors," or "legends" (see trigger word section).

Tribute Channel

Used title 2

<span class="text-color-red">47</span> <span class="text-color-yellow">BIG ACTORS</span> Who <span class="text-color-orange">Died</span> in the <span class="text-color-red">Last 6 Months!</span> Did you know that they are No More With Us ?

Again, this title structure is fine; simply delete the last part because it adds no value and makes the title far too long, resulting in a focus on the wrong words. Keep it short.

Tribute Channel

Used title 3

<span class="text-color-yellow">'KARATE KID 1984' STAR</span> & <span class="text-color-red">5</span> <span class="text-color-orange">ICONS</span> Who <span class="text-color-orange">Died</span> <span class="text-color-red">Today!</span>

Great example from which to learn. They chose the name of a character played by an actor (Karate Kid) because the target audience is likely to recognize him from that. I believe I would delete the five others who died because they add no value to this title in my opinion. If you talk about 5 other people in your video, that's fine, but you don't want any distractions in your titles. Less is more.‍

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

Tribute Channel

Used thumbnail 1

❌ So much is wrong here...

Long texts, no color in the image, black background, doesn't trigger in any way besides if someone knows her, confusing text. This video had 123K views, imagine what this video could have done with a way better thumbnail.

Tribute Channel

Used thumbnail 2

❌ Chaotic

This thumbnail is complete chaos and I don't know where to look. Lots of faces and all kinds of things in the background. This is a great example of people wanting to add too much in a thumbnail. Only thing that works in this thumbnail is probably BREAKING DIED TODAY

Tribute Channel

Used thumbnail 3

❌ Not triggering

This thumbnail is not triggering. No text, just a random image. The title was most likely the only thing that carried this video, but definitly not the thumbnail.

Tribute Channel

Used thumbnail 4

Tribute Channel

Revenue analysis

This channel receives 1.8 million views per month, so there is plenty of room for improvement. Think about what this channel might do if all of these factors were improved. One thing should be mentioned about the RPM: Because of some comments from people who don't like the ads on the videos, the RPM may be on the low side. Nobody likes ads, but that means they irritate people and make them less likely to click on them, resulting in a lower RPM. On the other hand, this is an older US audience in the celebrity niche (which advertisers love), which may result in a higher RPM than stated here.

Video analyses

Do's

00:00

Straight to the point

This video gives you right away the value you want as a viewer in the first seconds of the video. No lengthy intro, you get to see right away what you clicked for, so this is very good start to the video!

Don'ts

00:00

Boring editing

This video editing can be much better, there are no effects, boring slides...I notice anyway that a lot of channels in this niche have the same editing style, and they really should be able to do much better that this. Try to incorporate some more clips into the video, add more (sound) effects, background music, and some triggering transitions. As I mentioned before, if you make the editing better then it already becomes much more interesting to watch.

00:00

Bad pronunciation

While doing my research, I found out that many people in this niche do not like it when an AI-Voice is used in the videos. Why? Because the names of the people who died are not pronounced correctly. There is also no emotion in this voice, if you do choose to take an AI voice make sure you don't make it as flat as this one, otherwise it becomes such a monotonous video. Especially in this niche it is important to make videos with respect towards the deceased, because it is a more sensitive topic. You'd better invest in a good voice actor so these mistakes can't be made.

Used Title 1

⚡ Everyone Knew Him: <span class="text-color-orange">Famous</span> <span class="text-color-yellow">American Actor</span> Died <span class="text-color-red">Yesterday</span> at the age of <span class="text-color-red">93</span>

I would delete all the unnecessary stuff like "Everyone Knew HIm" and "died at the age of 93" because that is making this title way too long. If you structure like this you will have a way stronger title: This Famous Actor JUST DIED

Famous Actors

Title 2

<span class="text-color-red">7</span> <span class="text-color-yellow">Famous Actors</span> who passed away

This title is fine; however, I believe it could be more triggering if you added a word like "Today" to add some urgency.‍

THUMBNAIL RATING

Thumbnail analyses

Famous Actors

Used thumbnail 1

❌ Very confusing

When I saw this thumbnail I really had to laugh. Because now it looks like the presenter died, it's so confusing...The combination of her picture and the text just doesn't make sense.

Famous Actors

Used thumbnail 2

❌ Overwhelmed

Because humans are assumed to look at faces, a human face is a major focal point. As a result, the viewer will be overwhelmed by this thumbnail and will not click.

Famous Actors

Used thumbnail 3

❌ No trigger points

I think I don't have to explain anything here. It's just a picture and nothing more. Would never recommend this.

Lets create

your video

Who is our target audience?

Mainly U.S. woman between the age of 38 to 75 that are interrested in news videos between 10-20 minutes about famous people who died recently

YOUR VIDEO

Topic example

Where do I find topics?

Go to google.com --> Type in "dies at" or "died at"--> filter on "news
Now you'll find a whole list of people who died at and are famous at the same time, otherwise it wouldn't be in the news.

Where do I find content?

When you have found someone who passed away, just simple google their name into Google, YouTube, Twitter etc. and you'll find a lot of content.

Topic

You can take whoever you want, but whoever I choose, I already consider how to highlight this in the title and thumbnail. That is critical. So, using the methods described above, I discovered a deceased two-time Super Bowl champion. That's interesting because there is probably a lot of content to find.

Then you'll need to find some more stories to fill out this video. It is not a problem if someone died yesterday and you mentioned it in your title, for example: 11 CELEBRITIES WHO DIED TODAY. The competition is doing the same thing, and I couldn't find any comments complaining about it. As long as the first story is (the main character) died today. But for this example, let's say we have found 11 stories about famous people who died today, and maybe some yesterday or two days ago.

11 BIG STARS Who DIED Today

Trigger word

On the competition channels, I noticed that "BIG STARS" is a word that appears in more popular videos, so let's try that one.

Format

I also chose the same format as the Immortal News channel because they are doing well with these titles.

YOUR VIDEO

Thumbnail example

Try out

We don't have any proof that this will work, but I believe this thumbnail strategy will be far more triggering than the "breaking news" thumbnails. If this doesn't work, you can always go back to that format.

Finding the right picture

What we learned from our analysis is that it is extremely important for people to know what happened. That's also a very human reaction. Think about it: what was your first reaction when you heard someone had died? You want to know what happened, don't you?

People are watching YouTube because they want to see real footage. If they want to watch fake footage, they will watch Netflix. As a result, thumbnails created from real videos are always extremely effective on YouTube.

So, in my opinion, the combination of these two factors is ideal for this thumbnail strategy. So we'll have to look for videos on YouTube of the main character doing "normal" things. So what I mean with that is DON'T look for videos of the main character on a podium, on TV, or performing, for example. We'll look for videos where we can take a screenshot from and assume that these are some of his final moments because that's what people want to see.

So I came across this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KfDLQ_Vw38

And I took a screenshot:

YOUR VIDEO

End result

11 BIG STARS Who DIED Today
1.3M views · 2 days ago

Text

For this thumbnail format using text like "FINAL MOMENTS" "LAST MOMENTS" "DIED AFTER" "JUST DIED" will be extremly effective

Color

The character in the original image was wearing a grey t-shirt, which did not stand out. So I changed the color of his shirt to green to create a strong contrast with the background from YouTube and the red arrow.

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.
