niche?

The YouTube channel of WWE is the no.5 most viewed YouTube channel with 1.1 billion monthly views. So the target audience is huge. This competition channel generates already 1.6M+ views per month, while it has only been up for a month. For those who are also fans, this is a no-brainer.

AUDIENCE ANALYSIS

What does the audience like?

LIKE

Documentary style

The way the stories are told catches on with the audience. They especially like not always just hearing about how great the wrestlers are doing, but also the other side of their lives. By giving the viewer all ups and downs on the life story of the wrestler in a documentary form, you get an audience who will be interested to watch also other videos on your channel as well.

LIKE

Childhood Heroes

As we saw, they like real stories about the wrestlers best. They are also good at showing empathy, which makes them feel really connected to the main character. Because these are the viewer's childhood heroes, you can clearly see that it makes them remember their past, back then they weren't old enough to understand stuff like addictions and grown-up problems and because of this even had a different impression of the main character. This niche is so big that it is often passed down from father to son, creating nostalgia by the viewers.

LIKE

The way the story is told

Also, in this niche, you can clearly see why using AI voiceovers are sometimes not the best choice. These comments show that people are happy to see a great documentary being told by a real person. This helps you create a bond with your audience, who will return later to watch more content.

Video analysis

Do's

Click on timestamp

00:00

Excellent use of the title.

By starting this way, you keep it mysterious, that's a great intro hook to your title. You click on the video to get a life story of a main character nicknamed Rey Mysterio. Keeping the first 25 seconds questioning, engaging and mysterious confirms perfectly what the viewer has come for. By starting right away with intense music, a main character who says he is desperate and also using intense footage, you get this effect with the viewer. The only thing is that the footage used can be risky and copyright sensitive. I will go into more details about that at dont's.

00:00

01:29

01:43

04:58

Background music

The way the background music is used is really top-notch. Good transitions are made, and give an extra impact by making good use of certain background sounds/music. It makes the video exiting to watch, and will get the viewer right into the story.

10:20

Good reference but...

By also mentioning many other big names in the WWE, you can link well to other videos you've made, just like here at 10:20. The only thing that could possibly be improved, is to have a link pop up immediately in your screen or at the end to that specific video.

16:31

Great hook

The one you see here at 16:31 is great. The way it switches to the next thrilling chapter of the docu works. They use just a small hook 'At least for a while' this little piece of text along with the video editing and background music manages to re-hook you perfectly.

27:11

Excellent video editing

The video editor's work is really great. He edits the videos in a way that tells the story perfectly. Instead of using lots of fancy edits, he chooses the right moments to get the message to the viewer. It's not about big flashy effects; it's about showing the story in the best way possible, and that's exactly what he has done.

Don'ts

00:00

Copyright

Using certain clips, like they use here, can land you in hot water due to copyright rules. To play it safer, mix up your footage with images and include more of them, especially at the beginning of your video. What I've noticed, is that YouTube particularly strict about this, so it's important to be cautious. Despite the risks involved, the videos used offers great content.

11:41

12:20

12:54

Source of footage

You see here footage is used with German subtitles. I certainly will not use this in your video because it can be very distracting to the audience. If you really can't find any different footage and would like to use this footage, make sure that the subtitles are blurred so that they do not stand out as much as they do now.

TITLE RATING

Title analysis

@SpotfightDocumentaries

Used title 1

The <span class="text-color-orange">Dark Side</span> of <span class="text-color-yellow">The Rock</span> | <span class="text-color-yellow">WWE</span> Documentary

This is a good title format, and we see that this works, so you can definitely take an example from this. But I think you can improve it by adding more trigger words. For example, what I would do with this title is something like this:


The Gruesome DARKSIDE About The Rock Exposed.

@SpotfightDocumentaries

Used title 2

The <span class="text-color-orange">Dream</span> of <span class="text-color-yellow">WrestleMania</span> | <span class="text-color-yellow">WWE</span> Documentary

You can see in this title that they didn't use much trigger words, which also makes it less likely to catch on. As a viewer, you have no idea what you are going to be watching and therefore are less likely to click on this. By changing this to:


Untold STORIES About The WrestleMania Saga

By doing this, you're using more trigger words and expecting to be shown different stories that you haven't seen anywhere before. I always try to put the question to the viewer: so what stories? Have I missed something? Click.

@SpotfightDocumentaries

Used title 3

The <span class="text-color-orange">Tragic Story</span> of <span class="text-color-yellow">Eddie Guerrero</span> | <span class="text-color-yellow">WWE</span> Documentary

This title is fine, they made good use of trigger words by using a famous person's name and suggesting to his tragic story. This is exactly what your audience wants to see, and because of this, I would not change anything about the title itself.

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

@SpotfightDocumentaries

Used thumbnail 1

😐 Great thumbnail but...

They have used the maximum number of focus points of 3 very well here, and they choose the right facial expression of The Rock. However, you see that they have used the same text as in the title: The Dark Side of The Rock | WWE Documentary. So that's definitely a missed opportunity if you ask me. Besides that, images are absorbed much faster than text. So make sure you don't put too much text in your thumbnail but use a maximum of two or three triggering words.

@SpotfightDocumentaries

Used thumbnail 2

😐 Same story

This thumbnail is fine. By using good contrasted colors with a dark background, the face stands out well. But if we take a look at the text of this thumbnail, it needs exactly the same changes as the previous one, so to use this as a base would be great but with the additional changes it would be better.

@SpotfightDocumentaries

Used thumbnail 3

❌ Too much focus points

The thumbnails of this channel are fine except for the text. When I'm looking at this thumbnail, I see that it has multiple focus points, which makes it harder for the viewer where to focus. You have to imagine that people decide within split seconds on YouTube if they want to click on your video, and for that reason you don't want to use more than 3 focus points. Keep it simple because by showing multiple faces, fire and a long text in your thumbnail can easily distract the viewer.

@SpotfightDocumentaries

Used thumbnail 4

Revenue analysis

Because these will be longer videos, probably closer to $8, if you make shorter videos (8-10 minutes), the RPM (revenue per thousand views) will likely be lower, around $4.

Who is our target audience?

Primarily American males between the age of 25 and 50 that are interested in video documentaries between 20-30 minutes about WWE wrestlers.

YOUR VIDEO

Topic example

How do I find topics?

In this particular niche, it's crucial to closely analyze the content of the competition channel to understand what titles and topics are interesting. This channel uses long videos divided into multiple parts. So, paying attention to the successful trends in title choices and content within the competition can give you valuable tips and tricks for creating the best videos. I already mentioned that they make good transitions to the so-called chapters of the video. So pay close attention to this if you are going to put your video editor to work, how the competition channel did it. It is also important that your scriptwriter can explain well in a clear timeline what the life of, for example, The Hulk looks like. You can see a good example here at 16:32, good use of a hook to the next chapter of the episode. So this is important to communicate because this allows you to look for good topic chapters for your documentary in a more targeted way, which means a quality video in the end.


The best way to search for a topic with this niche is:

Google: you can find plenty of stories online that are about the lives of famous wrestlers. On this site, you will get multiple variations on topics you can make your videos about: https://www.wrestlinginc.com/1124876/the-most-tragic-moments-in-wrestling/

To attract the largest possible audience, I will always start with the most famous names in the game. If you have affinity for this niche then it will speak for itself of course, but if not, look for the WWE Hall Of Fame. https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/WWE_Hall_of_Fame
Here you get to see the best names in the sport. Personally, I would start on the life of Hulk Hogan. Not because I have affinity for the WWE, but because that shows up as one of the biggest name of a decade.

Topic:

So as I described, we're going to make a documentary about Hulk Hogan because he's one of the famous names in the sport and pop scene. His journey from wrestler to famous icon is fascinating, showing how he dealt with fame and failures. People love stories like his, so he's a perfect subject for a documentary style video.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001356/bio/

The topic I'm going to make a documentary about will be:

The GRUESOME TRAGEDIES About The HULK.

How to create your title?

I have already given some examples of how I would make my title but to continue on that for a moment, it is important to know what your target audience really likes and finds interesting: The other side of a wrestler's life, so that's why I would go for this title:

The [TRIGGERING EVENT] About [FAMOUS WRESTLER]

The GRUESOME TRAGEDIES About The HULK.

By suggesting in your title to all the tragedies he has been through, it raises questions for the viewer, who is going to wonder what other intense things this guy has been through. Anyone who watches WWE knows that plenty of things have happened around The Hulk, and by this title, you get the feeling that you still don't know everything about him and therefore can cause a lot of FOMO.

YOUR VIDEO

Thumbnail example

How to create your Thumbnail?

It is important to look for a picture where he does not look very healthy, because you want it to work with your title. The expression on his face makes him look like he is struggling or uncomfortable, which is exactly what we want to show.

Adding the background image

I went looking for a picture of the Hulk where he was in the hospital or where it's clear that he is not doing well. I used the keywords 'Hulk Hogan Hospital' on Google and came up with this image:

Adding a blue shirt and some shadows

You can probably see that this picture does not have many bright colors. To solve that problem, I chose to make his shirt blue in Photoshop. Go to Quick Selection Tool -> Fill Color -> Choose for Color Overlay. That way, the background stands out much more, and you have more bright colors in the thumbnail. I also darkened the top of this photo so that the text will stand out more.

Texture & Sharpen

To make sure his face stands out well I did the following in Photoshop: Camera raw filter -> Go to Detail -> Sharpening at 150 -> Go to effects -> Texture +100 -> Go to Light -> Exposure +0.85. If you look on the left side of Hulk Hogan's face, you will see that I also placed a black shadow behind his red clothes. These are all small details, but this way you make sure you that his face is the main focus point.

Add text & arrow

Then add the text and a red arrow with black shading and your end result will look like this:

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.
