ACE Affiliate Tyler Reed

Meet Tyler, a successful ACE affiliate

Tyler Reed, the brains behind PTPioneer.com, hosts one of the most successful websites in the ACE Referral Reward Program. Tyler has been a certified personal trainer for eight years and has been producing great content to help educate people on all things personal training. ACE had the opportunity to ask Tyler how the program has worked for his site, and his tips for beginners.

ACE: What has the ACE Referral Reward Program done for your fitness career?

Tyler: "The ACE Referral Reward Program has allowed me to significantly boost my income on top of what I am earning as a personal trainer. Not only am I earning more, but I am helping people start a career in a fantastic industry—one that changes lives for both trainers and their clients."

ACE: What is the best advice you could give someone new to affiliate marketing?

Tyler: "The best advice that I can give to people just getting started with affiliate marketing is to network as much as possible. After you have created your valuable content, you have to get people to see it. So however you decide you will obtain your traffic (social profiles, search engines, etc), you need to reach out to influencers in the industry for a guest post, or other publication. At the beginning, it is all about getting noticed. Maybe start a competition where you give something away for free to build hype and to get your brand recognized. It is all about obtaining traffic to your website or social profile page in order to make sales. Networking with influencers is a big part of that."
