Video analysis

Do's

Click on timestamp

00:00

Triggering intro

What they do very well, is starting with this first sentence, "So, you want to become smart?" because they give the viewer within one second what they clicked for. After that, they proceed to name facts, which will be recognizable to the target audience. To then drop a bombshell that everything you have been taught so far will result in you becoming homeless. That last sentence raises so many questions that as a viewer, you have no choice but to continue watching.

00:00

Simplicity to the max

In 'What does the audience like', I've already mentioned that people like the simplicity of these videos. They make it very accessible to a large audience who want to get smarter in all kind of aspects.

00:21

Triggering script

'Becoming smart is actually very easy...'

Good use of the right hook. In this case, the first part questions the government's way of getting smart and uses a good hook on which he makes you think that anyone can be smart and in fact you already are according to the creator. What they also do well here is referencing to the title, so that the viewer still feels that he is really going to get answers to the questions he or she got when reading the title.

01:32

Sarcasm

'The same 6 brain hacks from a Facebook post...'

This audience loves the sarcasm in these videos. They are commenting about it all the time, which will results in more engagement and more views.

02:12

Don't use AI because of this

I like this voice over because as we know from the comments this target audience is somewhat younger, and so is the voice-over. Besides that, it just seems like he's not reading a boring script, you might even almost think that he's just telling a story while editing. And that's exactly what you want in this niche, you want a voice over that makes it seem like he's just telling a story instead of reading it. The way the voice-over is explaining the story is something no AI can easily imitate. Also, the humor he uses and the voices he puts on from time to time makes it all so personal and fun to watch.

02:32

If you want to do this, then do it this way.

This is definitely the best way to ask your target audience to subscribe that I have seen so far. Including the question in a good hook combined with some humor is a very good way to increase the chance that someone would subscribe. With that being said, I don't mean that I fully support this, because in my opinion people don't subscribe to your channel just because someone asks them to. Because if you'd ask me, I will only subscribe to a channel if I like the content and not because a channel asks me to. But, If you do want to add this to your video for some reason, then do it this way.

TITLE RATING

Title analysis

Easy, Actually

Used title 1

<span class="text-color-orange">learning</span> a <span class="text-color-orange">new language</span> is <span class="text-color-orange">easy</span>, actually

With each title, this channel uses a particular title strategy. If you look at this title, you will see that they turn something difficult into something easy. And that's exactly what triggers this audience so much, because that will raise a lot of questions for them like: Huh? How is that easy? - Especially with this title, everyone knows that learning another language is not something you do in one day and that it can be quite difficult, so to then indicate that it is "easy, actually" will give a lot of confusion to the viewer. As a result: Click.

Easy, Actually

Used title 2

<span class="text-color-orange">Becoming smart</span> is <span class="text-color-orange">easy</span>, actually

We all know that becoming smart is something you have to learn for, which can sometimes take a long time or can be difficult. So similarly to title 1, they also turn something difficult into something easy. We also know from the comments that this audience tends to be slightly younger and includes students, and for that reason this title will be even more triggering for them. The title structure they use with every title is:

[TOPIC] is easy, actually.

What's interesting about this title structure is that you can constantly reuse this, and we can see that this strategy works. But because the topic is so specifically named in the title, the most important part for this niche is choosing the right topic so you can trigger the target audience a lot with the title. I'll go into more details about this on 'Lets create your video.'

Easy, Actually

Used title 3

Getting a <span class="text-color-orange">personality</span> is <span class="text-color-orange">easy,</span> actually

Again, this title will trigger this target audience well because the target audience includes young adults who probably want to become a better version of themselves. So this also gives us another confirmation that choosing the right topic is very important. So try to look for a title that you can link to a topic that is interesting to this target audience, something that many people find difficult, and then make that easy.

As an example:

Breaking up is easy, actually.

You can trigger them with this title because the topic fits the target audience's stage of life and because this is something that many people can experience as a painful, difficult time. But if you show that a break-up is actually easy, then this title can also raise a lot of questions, just like titles 1 and 2.

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

Easy, Actually

Used thumbnail 1

✅ Simple style, but...

I understand the style of these thumbnails, and I can understand why the target audience clicks on them. The drawing style they used is also the style used in the video, so I would definitely recommend using that same drawing style for your own thumbnail, because we see that it works and that the audience likes this style. But the text they used here is very similar to the title, and way too long, if you'd ask me. Also, there are too many focus points on this thumbnail, I would also reduce that to max 3 focus points, so that the viewer can look at it in a split second and know what the thumbnail is about.

Easy, Actually

Used thumbnail 2

❌ Too chaotic

This thumbnail has a lot of focus points and therefore quickly becomes chaotic. If you'd ask me, I would remove some of these focus points and try to explain the message you want to convey from the thumbnail as clearly as possible. Also, they use almost the same text in the thumbnail:
Becoming smart is easy, actually.

They did the same thing at title 1. For that reason, I wouldn't choose a text that is very similar to your title, because that is simply a missed opportunity. You can trigger your audience two times: once through your title and once through your thumbnail. So make sure that the text you choose for your thumbnail matches the title, without using the same words

YOUR VIDEO

Topic example

How do I find topics?

Since this target audience is somewhat younger, it is better to focus on topics that belong to the stage of life they are in. Besides that, they also find it interesting to watch videos about becoming a better version of themselves, because they are still at the beginning of their lives and are sometimes looking for answers on how to handle certain situations in life more easily. You can find a lot of topic inspiration from the competition channel and their community posts. Doing this research will give you an even better idea of what the target audience cares about and what they like to see.

Some example topics:

Quitting addiction is easy, actually

• Education/university/career

Math is easy, actually

• Social media detox is easy, actually

Finding motivation is easy actually

• Glowing up is easy, actually

• Life after college is easy, actually

Socializing is easy, actually

Breaking up is easy, actually

• Increasing your attention span is easy, actually

Keeping conversations going is easy, actually

Dopamine detox is easy, actually

Being a good student is easy, actually

Getting rich is easy, actually

• Speaking in public is easy, actually

• Studying is easy, actually

Making progress is easy, actually

Topic:

As we know, this target group consists mainly of young (male) students. For that reason, I want to focus on a topic that relates to the life of a student in order to trigger the target group as well as possible. So I started my analysis of the competition channel, which video is the most popular? What kind of topic did they use? I saw that the video 'Becoming smart is easy actually' has achieved the most views, which to me sounds logical because a lot of people who watch these videos are students. So I definitely want to continue down this route simply because we see that it works and because we have the confirmation that they like topics like that.

So I had this title in my mind: Getting an A Degree is easy, actually. To find information on this topic that I had in mind, I started searching on YouTube by simply copy and paste this title: Getting an A Degree is easy. I then came across some interesting videos, from which we can get a lot of inspiration. I will link them below.

How to create your title?


As you know, choosing the right topic is very important in this niche for your title. Because you're going to trigger people through the topic that you'll use in your title. I used the same title strategy as the competition channel and chose to go for this title:


[TOPIC] + is easy, actually.

Examples:

Getting graduated is easy, actually

Being a great student is easy, actually

Thumbnail example

How to create your thumbnail?

Since the reference channel has such an obvious thumbnail style, I would recommend trying out that style as well because, the numbers show that it's working.

So I first chose to go for a black background and started by drawing a small figure with the Pencil in Photoshop. I chose for the color blue, because it keeps us away from staying in the same colors as the competition channel, and allows us to create our own style.

Add elements

Then I started searching on Google for some elements to add to the thumbnail. I wanted to show on the left side a more sad puppet who is 'not happy,' and on the right side I wanted to create a 'happy puppet' who has graduated and feels great. I then added the text "I need a job" with the font: Chalkduster.

Add text

I added the text Before and After to get even better contrast between the two sides. I noticed that I was missing something on the puppets head on the right side, and on Google I was able to find a matching red graduation head, which makes it even clearer that this is the outfit you wear when you have your graduation. At the end, I added a blue line around the thumbnail so that the thumbnail would stand out just a bit more, so that this will be your end result:
