niche?

This niche may not appear to be a real banger at first glance, but after doing my research, I discovered interesting results of channels that do not upload frequently but receive a lot of views. So, while this niche may not show up in hard data as a viable source of income, I believe it is possible if you consistently upload high-quality videos.

Memories

Many people who watch these videos have self or know someone who has experienced the tornado. Or it has been close by, and have heard a lot about it. And that's something they like to share in the comments.

LIKE

Animals that survive

There are also many comments where the target audience is concerned about animals. Did the animals survive? That is something they do care about a lot.

LIKE

Modern animations

The competition channel makes a lot of use of great animations in the videos, showing how the tornado passes over a city. The target audience likes to see this and can much better understand the analysis of exactly how it happened.

Click on timestamp

00:00

Great intro

This is a very good example of getting straight to the point and starting your video with a great hook. The video footage shows right away, with a strong story telling hook. Very good intro!

05:07

Great animations

They use good animation in this video which makes the story they want to tell much more clear. Also, we have seen that the target audience appreciates this in the videos through the comments, so I would definitely recommend looking for an video editor who can implement these kind of animations. Note: Animations are expensive.

00:57

Great hook, but...

''unfortunately the people in the region, will soon learn just how severe the storm was going to be...''

This is a good example of how to build tension in the story. This can give the viewer a reason to continue watching the video because they are triggered by little hooks like this. So use enough hooks in your script to trigger the viewer from time to time, just like they do here. But this 'hook' does not stand out enough since the background music does not fit the topic/niche well. When using a hook, I would definitely include a sound effect or pause the background music for a moment, this will make the viewer experience the hook much more intensely.

1:45

Use news broadcasts in your video

If you ask me, this is really a must for this niche. We are talking about real life events that happened in the world, which probably had a big impact on a lot of people. So chances are that the topic you choose has been in the news, and you can use that very well for your video. The more real footage, the better.

2:02

Show the welfare of the animals

Since we have seen in the comments that this audience is very concerned about the animals during a tornado, I would definitely recommend reflecting this in your script.

Don'ts

00:10

Really bad music choice

Background music is extremely important in your video, and this is an excellent example of why you should avoid using it. It's a great story-telling script, but the background music makes it feel like a futuristic story, which is completely wrong. If the creator had included dark/scary music, the story would have been way better.

01:36

No sound effects and wrong background music

''this one has a potential for big problems...''

We are listening to a good script here only no thrilling sound effect is added while using a hook. The background music remains the same, and therefore the hook that is used does not reach the viewer as well as it should be. Let your editor ensure that when you use a hook in the video, it stands out more by adding a sound effect or pausing the background music. As a result, the impact of a hook will be much more intense and you can trigger the viewer more.

TITLE RATING

Title analysis

TornadoTRX

Used title 1

The <span class="text-color-orange">Tornado</span> That <span class="text-color-orange">Destroyed</span> A Town

This title is okay, but if you adjust the sentence structure slightly you will have a much better title. Using words like "a town" and "the tornado" in your title will diminish its importance. If you change those to "this tornado" and a "Whole City!", will make your title way more triggering. And if you add an emotional trigger word like "shocking" your title will look like this:

This HUGE Tornado DESTROYED a Whole City!

TornadoTRX

Used title 2

The <span class="text-color-orange">Rarest</span> <span class="text-color-orange">Tornado</span> Occurrences

Same with this one, the title is fine, but I'm missing some intense trigger words.
I would use the title structure as follows:

The Most SCARIEST Tornado Caught On Camera


- Most SCARIEST Tornado [trigger word + title]
- Caught on camera [trigger word]

TornadoTRX

Used title 3

The <span class="text-color-red">2023 Nashville</span> <span class="text-color-orange">Tornado Explosion</span>

When using a city in your title, two things may happen: People may already know this Tornado incident and therefore will not click on it. But on the other hand, it could also be that people are looking for this specific Tornado and are more likely to click on it. So it's not right or wrong to do this, but I'm always more likely to look for a general, shocking title about a tornado and include the location of the tornado in your video or description so that it still shows up if someone is looking for it.

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

TornadoTRX

Used thumbnail 1

✅ Focus points, but...

This is a good example of using a maximum of 3 focus points on the thumbnail. We only see text here, and a tornado in the background. But... the black text is barely visible, and the tornado does not appear to be particularly dramatic.

TornadoTRX

Used thumbnail 2

✅ 1870 Vs 2013

A clear thumbnail with a clear message which can definitely trigger this target audience. We can see on this thumbnail that the tornado in 2013 was obviously a lot more intense than in 1870, and that in turn can trigger some questions to the viewer. 'What does this mean for the future? And how exactly can this happen, and why are tornadoes becoming more intense? Is this the same place?' These are all questions the viewer may have while they are watching this thumbnail. I would recommend trying this out as well.

TornadoTRX

Used thumbnail 3

✅ Great triggering text but..

This is a better example of how the thumbnail is going to stand out more if you use text that is better visible and triggers well, but....  the picture of the tornado is not that shocking if you ask me. Because the text says: 'nothing left' you actually expect to see a more intense tornado in the background. Houses destroyed, buildings with nothing left, etc. If you choose this text, make sure that the photo also matches text, because that is exactly what we are missing here on this thumbnail.

TornadoTRX

Used thumbnail 4

Revenue analysis

If this channel uploads more frequently, they could be making a lot more money. The video that has about 200K views earned nearly $800, showing that this channel could make thousands of dollars every month. The audience is mainly American, which typically showsa greatRPM. So, while the totalcalculation below may not appear to be particularly interesting, does not show the real picture.

Topic example

How to find topics?

What makes these documentaries interesting is that they include a lot of real footage of tornadoes. So, I recommend that you begin researching on TikTok, YouTube, Instagram, or any other social media platform because it is difficult to create a great video without this content. When you've found an interesting clip, start looking for more as much as possible, the more you have, the better your video will be. Look for photos, videos, news broadcasts, Google Maps before and after images to see the damage that occurred, stories of people who have witnessed the event and more.

You can also start with a topic of the competition channel. Make sure you don't copy the channel and make your own story of it. But what's great is that you know there is plenty of footage available because they were able to make an 8-min+ video about it.

Topic

I started looking on TikTok on the search term "tornados destroyed city" and I found this video. In this video, a tornado is rushing through a city where 7 children in a school died. A shocking story with footage from a teacher who was in the school with the children at that time. There is a lot of information and footage availabe about this tornado, so that's a great topic to go for.

How to create your title?

I chose to go for this title structure:

This [TRIGGER WORD] Tornado [TRIGGERING EVENT]

You can reuse this title structure over and over again just by changing what's in between the brackets. For example:

This SHOCKING Tornado DESTROYED 1150 Houses

This CRUEL Tornado DEMOLISHED a Whole City!

Note: Using the word "Murdered" is a bit on the edge of what YouTube allows. If you want to be safe, go for the other suggestions.

YOUR VIDEO

Thumbnail example

How to create your thumbnail?

Unless you can find a terrifying picture of the tornado shown in your video, you can simply Google a random picture of a terrifying tornado and use that. Yes, you are sort of click baiting by doing so, but as long as your thumbnail and title fits your video, no one will be able to tell if the tornado in your thumbnail is real or not.

So I simply typed into Google: "Terrifying Tornado" and I found this picture:

This image shows a tornado sweeping through a city, which is similar to the topic, and appears rough due to a lot of stuff flying around.

What did I do?

  • Sky color: I changed the color of the sky from blue to something the same as the tornado because it will create a more dramatic look.
  • Text: I chose to go for the text "nothing left" because that worked in one of the thumbnails from the competition. You could also go for the text "Kids inside" and point an arrow towards the building.

Important note

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.
