How to Create a Deepfake Video and Make Money from It

14 June 2024

Artificial intelligence (AI) is advancing rapidly, and one of the most interesting developments is deepfake technology. In this article, we’ll explore what deepfakes are, how they’re used by affiliates, and share a list of the top tools for creating them. Plus, we’ll give you some tips on how to make money from your deepfake creations.

What is a deepfake?



A deepfake combines "Deep Learning" and "Fake" to describe an AI-driven method of altering images or videos. 

Over the past couple of years, the quality of deepfakes has improved drastically thanks to advancements in AI, making them easier and more affordable to create. 

Initially, deepfake technology was often used to generate explicit adult content, but it now has a variety of applications, which we will discuss shortly.

How to create a deepfake

Creating a deepfake is simpler than you might think. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  • Find the original material: Start with the video footage you want to modify.
  • Upload it to an AI tool that generates deepfakes: Find an AI tool that generates deepfakes and upload your video. We’ll cover the best AI tools for this later on.
  • Generate the video: The AI tool will use its AI capabilities to swap faces and generate the finished deepfake.

Making money from deepfakes

Deepfakes aren’t just for fun, they can also be used to make money. Here’s how to do it:

  • Select an offer in an affiliate program: Choose a product or service to promote.
  • Choose a traffic source: Decide where to advertise your affiliate offers.
  • Use AI to create deepfake video ads: Use AI tools to design compelling and convincing deepfake videos that you will use as advertisements for the affiliate offer.
  • Launch and optimize your advertising campaigns: Launch your advertising campaigns and continuously refine them for better performance.

A good way to get traffic for your offers is to use the MyBid advertising network. MyBid has a fully managed system where you get a personal manager. This manager not only provides expert advice, but they also handle all the practical work of setting up your ad campaigns, launching them, optimizing them, and scaling them up over time.

10 best tools for creating deepfakes


One of the most well-known applications for creating deepfakes is DeepFaceLab. This program used to only work with certain Nvidia video cards, but now it works on both Windows and Linux computers.

To make a deepfake video with DeepFaceLab, you need two videos:

  • A video with the face you want to put into the new video.
  • A video of the person you want to put that face onto.

DeepFaceLab takes these two videos and analyzes them to identify the key features of the faces, like the eyes, mouth, and nose. It then uses artificial intelligence to basically swap the faces, putting the first face onto the second person's body.



The program compares the original video to the new deepfake video. If the result doesn't look good enough, the AI adjusts some settings until it gets an acceptable final video. This back-and-forth process of trial-and-error is called "supervised learning".

At the end, the AI combines the two videos into one, with the new face seamlessly placed onto the second person.

It's important to note that making high-quality, long deepfake videos requires a lot of computing power. But DeepFaceLab has become the most popular tool for creating deepfakes, making about 80% of all the deepfake videos out there.

The following functions are built into the service:

  • Swap faces in photos
  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Whole head replacement
  • Lip movement manipulation
  • Adjust image resolution and quality




The program is completely free

The interface is challenging for beginners

A wide range of video creation features

Requires a powerful PC for video creation

Faceswap is another great tool that works on Linux, macOS, and Windows. Like DeepFaceLab, it's completely free. Faceswap offers several models for different needs:

  • Lightweight: A stripped-down model designed to run on GPUs with less than 2GB of VRAM. It can also be used on more powerful computers for quick initial results before moving on to an advanced model.
  • Original: The first model, which gives average results.
  • Unbalanced: A highly powerful model that can be customized to achieve perfect results.
  • RealFace: The successor to Unbalanced, this model is easy to set up and excels at face replacement.

There are also other models like Dlight and the Phase-A model designer, recommended only for experienced users.

If you’re looking for a mobile option, Reface is a fantastic choice. Unlike the previous two AI tools that require a PC, Reface works directly from your phone.

Reface also analyzes the uploaded materials to produce higher-quality images during processing.

However, keep in mind that the angle of the faces in the original and target images needs to be similar. If the angles differ too much, the symmetry might be off in the final video.

The app is free to use and has many features, but videos will include watermarks unless you opt for a Pro subscription.
