An Overview of Evergreen Wealth Formula
First of all, I am neither a member nor an affiliate of Evergreen Wealth Formula. The purpose of this review is to provide information that is as accurate as possible, in order to help you make an informed decision. I am not receiving any compensation for writing this review.
I understand some people do not have the time or patience to sit through a long review. If you are one of such people, here is a point-form summary of what you should know about the Evergreen Wealth Formula:
- The program is completely legit
- It is an affiliate marketing course
- It is really affordable. I have reviewed similar programs on this website that go for around $2000!
- There is great value in the training. The owner really put in a lot of work on this one
- You get private 1-on-1 email coaching from James Scholes
What is Evergreen Wealth Formula?
It is an instructional video training course designed to teach anyone how to make money through affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is what I do, and I personally think it is the cheapest and most convenient way for beginners to get started online.
Who is it for?
I think the Evergreen Wealth Formula is for anybody looking to build a business online, regardless of their skill level. I can also tell you this is as low a price as you will find for any legitimate program if you are serious about building an online business.
What I like about this program
It’s Affiliate Marketing
If I didn’t like affiliate marketing, I wouldn’t be doing it. It’s a system that lets you build your online business around something you love. I also find it to be the most convenient and least expensive way for beginners to get started online.
I like when product creators actually take the time and effort to put out a quality product. I did not purchase the program, but Mr. Scholes gives us a glimpse of what is inside the Evergreen Wealth Formula.
It is broken into 4 parts which cover an array of topics from where and how to host your website to finding affiliate products to setting up your autoresponder and getting traffic.
One thing you will not be disappointed with is the training.
Private 1-on-1 Email Coaching
When he mentioned this, I had my doubts if I am being honest. For somebody that has been around for a while, I just could not see how he would be able to cater to all his mentees personally.
But I am yet to find a comment anywhere from anybody that claims he does not help out through emails. In fact, everyone says he does. So now, I believe he does. If you get the Evergreen Wealth Formula, you will get access to email coaching from James Scholes.
If you look around this website, you will find some other programs that also teach affiliate marketing but charge over $1000. These other programs do not even offer 1-on-1 private coaching!
I find it weird that a program of this quality goes for a one-time payment of $97, with regular updates and no upsells! They don’t come cheaper than this one, I’m telling you.
What I do not like
Some of their promotion tactics
One of the first things you see when you land on their sales page is “You will make $100 a day in just 30 days from now”.
Is it possible for you to make $100 a day after 30 days? Yes, it is. My problem with that statement is the word “will”. The word ‘will’ implies a guarantee and I’m sorry to say it is possible you will not earn $100 a day, regardless of what instructions you get in the training.
I believe James Scholes’ income claims of making $1,000 a day. In fact, I believe this is only one of his accounts and he makes even more per day.
Why do I think this? Because he said he has been doing this for 10 years. I’m not saying you will have to wait 10 years to earn $1,000 a day, I’m saying nobody knows when that will happen or if it would ever happen.
What James Scholes teaches you are the methods he has used, and what you could do, to get to $1,000 a day. If and when you actually make that amount depends on your diligence, commitment and ability to scale your business.
He goes on to say that the program will only be available at $97 for a short period of time. In the video below, he said that presentation has not been updated since 2013. Guess what? The program is still available and it goes for $97 until this very day.
One thing I cannot fathom is why a program with so much value will have to stoop so low to the kind of promotion normally associated with scam-like products. The Evergreen Wealth Formula is not a scam, but I am far from impressed with the way he’s trying to sell the product.
Only video training
I mentioned before that I did not buy the Evergreen Wealth Formula. This review was written based on the information the owner gave about the program in the sales video.
Whenever I wanted to be sure of something, I had to go back to the video. That is what happens when you only get video training.
Whenever you want to clarify something, you will have to go to the video and skip around to where you think the answer would be. Whereas, if there was written training, you would just spot what you were looking for. What you could learn in 5 minutes reading, you might end up learning in 10 minutes watching videos.
If you are comfortable with only video training, this program is excellent for you. If you like written training, the experience would not be as exciting.
Everything you will be implementing while going through this training is going to be done on a website.
At $97, it is unrealistic to expect the membership to include website hosting but this is a pre-requisite to take action on the training and this is only mentioned after you have bought the training.
To be fair, James Scholes recommends the shared version of D9 hosting which only costs $6.95 per month.
Since the program does not have a trial offer, I feel this should be mentioned somewhere on the sales page so that prospective members will be aware of this extra commitment.
This program is legit, no doubt about that. But James Scholes tells us more than once that the techniques in this program have been kept a secret from everyone – including those in his mailing lists.
When he is trying to sell the product near the end of the video, he tells us that his high-paying clients pay $2,000 a month for this information.
Most people will wave this off as a marketing tactic, but I think marketing tactics are about what you include and what you leave out in your promotions.
Withholding the complete truth could be a marketing tactic, but telling a straight up lie is simply lying. There is no way the techniques were kept a secret until now and clients were paying $2,000 a month for these techniques. One of them is not true.
Re: James Scholes on WA Affiliates
I have never cared about these comments because WA is not my company. If Kyle and Carson (owners of WA) want to defend it, they should. But it is not my responsibility to defend Wealthy Affiliate.
However, I am writing this section because James Scholes says a few things about affiliates of WA (this includes me), some of which are somewhat true, but most of which are flat-out wrong. Here are some of the things he talks about:
WA Affiliates have not bought the Evergreen Wealth Formula and are relying on my video presentation to write their review.
Like I said, I did not buy the program. Therefore, this directly speaks to me.
That presentation is what is still on the program’s website till this day. That is all the information prospective members get to see before they buy into the program. It is based on this info, people actually see what they are paying for.
If what is in the presentation is different from what the program looks like now, they should probably update the video on the website. You can’t show people what they are paying for and then offer them something else.
They do not buy the programs they review 9 times out of 10.
I cannot speak for other WA affiliates, but I can speak for myself. I do not buy all the programs I review, but I actually buy most of them.
I don’t waste my money on programs that scream scam straight from the homepage or those that are operating an illegal business model. I also do not buy those that don’t offer trial offers or refunds.
The only reason I didn’t purchase the Evergreen Wealth Formula is because they do not do refunds at all. Having said that, all the information I have given on this program came straight from the horse’s mouth.
By the way, I don’t think there is anything wrong with reviewing a product you have not purchased as long as you do not make things up. Use the info the program themselves give you, contact people that use the program, contact their support or owners. Study what they are about and try to give a fair assessment of what they are offering. Also state in the review that you did not purchase the product.
They never approve his comments trying to correct their wrong information.
I absolutely cannot understand why they refused his comments on their website. I guess people are different.
As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think there is any better person to provide my readers with the most accurate information on a program than the creator of the program. I love when owners take the time to leave comments on my website.
The whole point is never to bash a program, but to properly inform those looking for information. If something in my review is incorrect, it is in the reader’s best interests that I correct it.
I understand his frustration on this one. I saw some of the reviews of this program and I must say that one especially was gasping at straws just to push this program down.
Wealthy Affiliate teaches you to promote Wealthy Affiliate
The worst thing about this comment is that it is free to create an account with Wealthy Affiliate. He could have just created a free account to see if this is what WA actually teaches.
I have been in WA for two years now, while this website promoting WA was created 5 months ago. I never once promoted it until I created this website, not even on social media. If what we had to do was promote WA, what was I doing for the other 19 months not promoting it?
What is even more disappointing is the fact that James Scholes’ Evergreen Wealth Formula is also an affiliate marketing course. He knows what affiliate marketing is about and that is what WA also teaches you. They teach you to build an online business in a niche you are passionate about.
Before this website, I created a Men’s fashion authority website, a niche website about sport jerseys and a hobby niche website about drones. I did this by following the training within WA and I’m proud to say all have been profitable. As a matter of fact, at this time, this website promoting WA brings in the least amount of money to me.
Everybody writes negative reviews about other programs to promote WA
I believe there are 3 kinds of people that promote Wealthy Affiliate:
- People that have been trying to make money online, but have been scammed in the past.
- People that have implemented the training in another niche, and now want to share that the training works.
- People that want to make money online, but are unable to find a niche they are passionate about.
I fall deep into the second category, but I’m also very near the first. It was while I was looking up reviews online for a company that I found Wealthy Affiliate. I spent time implementing the training in other niches and now that I have seen it works, I feel comfortable sharing and helping others do the same.
I have had many referrals from this site within a short time and I never advise they choose “make money online” as a niche unless they are truly passionate about it. Why? One, because it’s competitive. Two, it is more difficult to talk up a program you have not enjoyed success with.
As you would expect, people in the first category would like to expose scams. I don’t see what the fuss is about writing negative reviews so long as the programs actually deserve negative reviews.
It is profitable to promote WA, that’s why they do it.
It could be profitable, but here’s the thing: On this website, I only ask people to test-run the program by creating a free account. Depending on how they feel about the program, they can decide to go premium or not. I do not get any commissions from free accounts! I also do not persuade anybody to go Premium.
The recurring monthly commission for a premium referral is $23.50. I will have you know that I could earn thousands of dollars per referral from some of the programs I have reviewed on this site.
It is just as easy or difficult to rank for a positive review as it is to rank for a negative review. If I was simply looking for something profitable to promote, I would not be promoting Wealthy Affiliate.
It is unethical to promote WA this way
If I see a product (like the Evergreen Wealth Formula) that I think is legit, I will say it’s legit. However, one thing I won’t apologize for is feeling that Wealthy Affiliate is better than them.
I am yet to see a program that offers this amount of quality training, 24-7 support via live chat, 24-7 technical support, a huge internet community, website hosting, a keyword research tool and so much more that I cannot think of right now at the price they offer it for. Let me know if you know of such a program, and I will start recommending it.
If people join the Evergreen Wealth Formula and follow the training, they can be successful online. I feel like I’ve made that clear in my review. But I’m not sorry for still thinking WA is better.
The Warrior Forum thread
I read this thread and was laughing my ass off. Someone there said Google prefers to rank negative reviews, while one of the commenters owns a program I actually wrote a positive review for on this website.
Everyone in that thread either has an agenda or has had their program reviewed by a WA affiliate. There is nothing surprising about the reactions on that thread. There is nothing on earth that gives everybody a 100% positive experience.
Our reviews rank
Someone in the Warrior Forum thread said if you look up Wealthy Affiliate reviews, you will only see those written by WA members.
Well, if you want to write a negative review, write it and let Google take care of the rest.
I think the fact that many non-WA members write reviews but you find WA members on the top spot for keywords related to a lot of these internet marketing programs is the biggest proof that the training does work.
Google isn’t a member of Wealthy Affiliate and as such, they do not have a real preference for WA members. Somehow we find ourselves on the first page of Google. We must be doing something right.
The Evergreen Wealth Formula is definitely not a scam. It is, in fact, one of the most legit programs I have come across in the internet marketing space. Just bear in mind that for all the great training you will be receiving, you will still have to purchase hosting for your website.
If you follow the training on Evergreen Wealth Formula, you can make money passively online. If you want a program that already offers you hosting and lets you check things out for free, check out my top recommendation.
Regardless of what program you join, the key to being successful online through affiliate marketing is taking action. It is not watching the training that makes you money. It is implementing the training.
