If you’re on this page you probably want to know if Evergreen Wealth Formula a Scam or legit product.

Evergreen Wealth Formula by James Scholes is a training course on affiliate marketing that will teach you how to build affiliate sites or to be exact, squeeze pages and make money through email marketing.

I have come across this program recently and decided to take a look at it and help you understand what is inside this course and how it can help you become another success story on the internet.

The training is actually a step-by-step guide and everything inside it is broken down to steps and if you follow the training and apply the steps exactly as James teaches you then you can make thousands of dollars per month.

At least this is exactly what James Scholes promises you in his course. And he even promises that you can start making $100 a day in 30 days and then he promises you to make $1000-$2000 per day which comes to $30.000-$60.000 per month.

I believe you want to know if it’s really possible to see such an income in 30 days and in my review I’m going to share my opinion on this product and tell you if Evergreen Wealth Formula a Scam or not.






Pros of Evergreen Wealth Formula

  • Price is affordable for most people
  • Email and forum support
  • Training contains a lot of training modules
  • All techniques taught by James are actionable
  • You will learn email marketing which is important for your online business


Cons of Evergreen Wealth Formula

  • James makes some unrealistic claims
  • To use the system to its full potential you need to have a budget for advertising and taking advantage of the email marketing part of the training
  • Jackpot Paydays ( optional upsell) will cost you $147
  • I can’t agree with some methods that James teaches his students



Proof of my purchase

To prove that I actually bought the course I made a screenshot of the email that I received from James Scholes. See the screenshot.

If you decide to buy the course you will get the same email for activating your EWF account.

BTW, if you decide to buy Jackpot Paydays upsell after buying the main EWF course, it was moved to EWF members area which is great because you can now access both products within the same members area.



Inside the program

Can you replicate James’ success?

First off, I would like to let you know from the very start that Evergreen Wealth Formula is not a scam. It’s totally legit product and if you are looking for something worthwhile to invest your money you can try it.

But you must understand that this program is not a push button software that will make you money on the fly without any effort.

You can buy this product ONLY if you are willing to learn the material, follow the steps outlined by James, apply the knowledge and stay patient until you start seeing money in your bank account.

The only thing that is guaranteed with this product is that you will learn exactly how James is making money.

But there is no guarantee that you will be making the amount of money promised by James without doing anything or that you will be making as much as he is making.

Based on my experience in making money online I can say with full confidence that most likely you will not be able to replicate his success simply because you are not James.

You’re just starting out online while he has been making money for a few years now.

The biggest problem I see online with most money making programs is that they all promise that you can easily repeat the process and start making thousands of dollars.

But when you start following their recommendations and apply the steps you get absolutely different results simply because YOU DON’T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE.



Evergreen Wealth Formula Training

Evergreen Wealth Formula contains a lot of training modules. You will learn how to choose an affiliate program/product, how to set up your squeeze page, how to set up autoresponder service and why you need it, how to get traffic to your website etc. A lot of stuff.

I have to admit that James has created a very good video course that covers most important aspects of internet marketing.

Especially I respect him for his honesty because compared to many other money making programs that hide all the info until you pay them, James in his promo video explains very clearly what you can expect from his program.

In fact, he walks you through his entire program and shows each training module and explains why you need it. This is really good and demonstrates his honesty.



Here is an Evergreen Wealth Formula training breakdown:

  • Start here
  • Setup ( 9 steps)
  • Blog setup (3 steps)
  • Automate&Scale (10 steps)
  • Automate&Scale No:2 (4 steps)
  • Fast traffic methods ( 2 steps)
  • Bonus: Youtube traffic (7 steps), Jackpot Paydays (7 parts)

In this training you will learn how to set up autoresponder, how to put autoresponder code onto your squeeze page, how to set up a squeeze page, how to upload everything to your server, how to set up a bonus page, prepare email swipes, set up an email account, set up a successful email campaign. You will also learn traffic strategies, free and paid methods.


Realistically speaking, what can you expect from Evergreen Wealth Formula training and can you really make as much money as James promises you?


1. As I said above, James’ training is good and if you can invest effort and time you can start making money over time.

As I can see, James describes various methods of getting traffic to your website, but not all methods are free and if you want to use his system to its full potential you need to allocate a budget if you want fast results.

James calls his traffic method Automated Traffic Streams. It’s all about automating the traffic and scaling it up until you’ve started making a solid monthly income. But it will take time and effort.

For example, he teaches you how to drive traffic using email marketing. This method will cost you money. But there are also other methods explained that won’t cost you an money at all. Just your effort and patience are required.

For email marketing the best service is Aweber which will cost you around $230 per year. GetResponse will cost you much less, approx. $150 per year.


2. As I can see, his training is mostly focused on email marketing. I may be wrong, but I don’t see any modules related to SEO (search engine optimization) while SEO is a free method and if applied the right way can bring you tons of traffic for free.


3. Driving traffic from Twitter or YouTube requires time and effort and you really need to work hard before you can get any traffic from these sources. It’s not going to happen overnight. The main idea of Evergreen Wealth Formula is automating traffic to your website called Automated Traffic Streams method.


4. I sincerely respect James for being honest and explaining what his program is about before paying him. Very few internet marketers do that. But you shouldn’t expect to start making $100 a day in 30 days. Be realistic.





5. He promises that you can make $1000-$2000 per day with his system. FYI, I made my first buck back in 2001. Then I quit internet marketing.

Years later I’ve started again and since 2013 I’ve been actively working online and now I’m making money on a regular basis. Making the amount of money James is talking about is not EASY at all.

Most probably it will take months to make your first sale and years to start making thousands of dollars per month. Yes, I believe that James Scholes is making thousands of dollars per month but it’s because he has been doing it for years now and he has his subscribers that are responsive to his offers.


6. The amount of money he is making can be made only through subscribers list, i.e. email marketing. As you understand, you don’t have that list which means you need to build that list first and this takes time and effort. Most likely months or 1,2 years.

I know many internet marketers that are making between $3000-$5000 per month, but they achieved this level after 1,2 years of hard work. For some people it can take even more. I don’t believe you can start making $100 a day = $3000 per month in 30 days.


EWF support

James Scholes provides quality support through email. You can contact him by email only which is not the best form of communication when it comes to making money online, but still it’s good that James is responsive and very helpful guy. I’ve never come across any complaints about James so far. My respect to him!



Final word on Evergreen Wealth Formula

My final opinion on Evergreen Wealth Formula is the green light. This program is not a scam. This is a mediocre product with quality support.

You can buy this program, but you most likely won’t be making thousands of dollars in 30 days. I also can’t agree with some strategies that he teaches in his course.

I can also offer you almost the same training with free websites, all necessary tools, 24/7 support, live chat, over 500 additional training modules through another program.

First off, you can try my recommended program absolutely for free. Then first month will cost you $19 and after that each month will cost you $47.

Or if you choose a one time payment then each month will cost you $29. This amazing price includes EVERYTHING. I think this is a good alternative to Evergreen Wealth Formula and I’m actually a premium member of my recommended program.

I suggest that you take a look at my recommended program and then make your final decision and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me.


Final verdict on Evergreen Wealth Formula

  • Price is affordable for most people
  • Email and forum support
  • Training contains a lot of training modules
  • All techniques taught by James are actionable
  • You will learn email marketing which is important for your online business
  • James makes some unrealistic claims
  • To use the system to its full potential you need to have a budget for advertising and taking advantage of the email marketing part of the training
  • Takes time and effort to see results
  • I can’t agree with some methods that James teaches his students
  • Overall score: 5 out of 10

    I’m from Thailand but now I living at UK. So what I need to ask you question. IS this I have to pay money to you? and how i can sell my product on line and can make money in come very well. How you train me?

  2. Eu says:

    Hi Rufat,

    Thank you for your review on the EWF, that was very helfull. One thing isn’t correct: the EWF is A one time payment of $197 and WA requires A monthly payment of $47, first month for $19. So WA costs more and isn’t free at all. To register is FREE but if you don’t upgrade your premium membership for the first month for $19 you won’t be able to follow any training, you have nothing.correct me if I am wrong.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Eu,

      You’re right. EWF is a one time payment while WA requires monthly payment. I didn’t say WA was free. I said it’s free to join and try for the first 7 days. Even if you don’t upgrade your account at Wealthy Affiliate you still have access to a ton of quality training for FREE and you will have two free websites hosted at WA. Plus you have access to live chat and 24/7 support. EWF makes some unrealistic claims and promises while WA doesn’t. But both programs are solid and legit. You decide.

  3. ray says:

    With affiliate how much would you typically make a month i dont you mentioning the income you can potentially earn

    • Rufat says:


      It depends on many factors. It depends on now many hours you work and how you learn and apply what you’ve learned. I’m making between $500- $700 per month. Other members are making a few thousands dollars per month. Some members are making $100 or so per month. There is no guarantee on the amount of money you can make. It’s like a business in real world.

  4. Courtney says:

    This review was much needed. I consider myself a realistic person so a lot of the keywords that were presented in Mr. James presentation videos definitely stood out and slightly and slowly pushed me away. I know absolutely nothing about marketing or affiliate programs but nevertheless, I am a fast-learner. Understanding I would have to be dedicated to any marketing online program but how do you know for certain that it’s worth the time and money that’s required?

    • Rufat says:

      James’s program is worth the time and investment. You can continue your research though. Most program reviewers are positive about Evergreen Wealth Formula. If you are a goal oriented person you can learn a thing or two from James and start making money. But his support may cost you a lot. My recommended program is free to try. Give it a try before you order Evergreen Formula.

  5. Gerald Lafontaine says:

    I have been with W/A for over a week now and for someone like me a guy of 72 years young it sounds like a very good system but much TOO complicated for me.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Gerald,

      I think being in the program for one week is a too short space of time to make a judgement about the program. But I understand you very well. Starting a business in the age of 72 is not easy though it’s possible. It’s not complicated at all once you’ve learned main principles of the system.

  6. Ivan Ivanov says:

    Hello Rufat! I already bought the WEF I’m still going through the steps ,I’m actually on the bonus page set up and autoresponder just before the get traffic step. But I also bought and the “Jackpot day” add of the program. I guess you know it , so do you think this gonna give me better results? And also if I register the Whealthy affiliates I can get in to some of the James steps to get better results?

    Thank you!

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Ivan,

      Like in any program that I’ve seen so far Evergreen Formula’s bonus program can help you get better results BUT it in no way guarantees you any results. Bonus means more advanced techniques. But applying those techniques and getting results will take time and results are different for everyone. Wealthy Affiliate is totally different program from EWF with a much better support. Yes, I believe Wealthy Affiliate can help you get better results and is definitely worth the time and effort. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  7. Code says:

    There’s no problem at all, in evergreen wealth formula its just that the way it was because they have rules and regulations it depends.but one thing is that it’s not affordable for everyone because the its high priced for the beginners or newbies so I would prefer that still Wealthy affiliate is much better because they have free training course and free registration at low priced.

    • Rufat says:

      I agree that WA is a much better alternative and it’s because they never make false promises to anyone. The only issue with Ever Green Wealth Formula is that private coaching will cost you a few thousand dollars and James makes some unrealistic claims too.

  8. Tim says:

    Hi Rufat,

    I hadn’t heard of this program until now and you’ve certainly given Evergreen Wealth a very detailed review. I like how you explain clearly to people what they can expect and that it isn’t some push button software.

    Even decent programs like this can be promoted as though it is all just too easy and will happen quickly, this is simply not true.

    Success takes time, effort and endurance. From what you’ve said this program has some good value but will take work like any other business.

    Thanks for sharing your insights, cheers!

    • Rufat says:

      Yes, that was my main idea to explain people what they can get from this product because although Evergreen Wealth Formula is legit program I think James gives people wrong expectations. I think this is the only red flag in this program. Of course, I understand that James wants to sell his product and in his promo video he tries to convince you that his program is extremely simplified and can be implemented through simple steps and results will come. And results will come, but the questions is: what kind of results? I’m sure results will be very different from what James promises you. This is true that success takes time and that’s why I always promote Wealthy Affiliate because they have a very realistic approach with any unrealistic claims.

  9. Daniel Aittie says:


    You have done a job on reviewing Evergreen Wealth Formula. I have some points from this review and concluded that virtually all affiliate marketing platforms require you pay before you can learn their ways of earn like they say you can catch a fish with a fish.

    Thanks for this unbiased review on Evergreen Wealth Formula.


    • Rufat says:

      Yes, you are right Daniel. Most programs on affiliate marketing teach people how to make money which is good, but you can’t try them before you buy. They promise that you can simply follow their recommendations and start making thousands of dollars and we see the same approach in Evergreen Wealth Formula. But in my review I explained that things are much more complex than James Scholes tries to describe them. You simply can’t replicate his success as easy as he tries to explain it. But anyway his product is good and I can recommend it if you have the right mindset and have the right expectations.
