hop right off the launch roller coaster
evergreen edge academy
You’ve created a membership site that’s making a real impact and your members love. And while the launch marketing model has helped you get this far, it’s just not working as well for you anymore.
It’s time to go evergreen!
Why go evergreen?
An evergreen marketing funnel lets you scale faster and launch less frequently. Unlike open memberships where anyone can join anytime, evergreen let’s you continuously enroll people who are truly interested to your membership without having to wait for a launch.
When you lose as many members between launches as you gain during launches– that’s the dreaded “launch plateau”. Your membership goes sideways. Evergreen breaks through the launch plateau so you can achieve the growth you want.
Love on Your Members
Evergreen runs itself, so you can get off the sales hamster wheel. You’ll spend less time planning and running launches and more time serving your members.
Reduce Reliance on Launches
Events beyond our control can throw a wrench into the best planned launches. Launching can feel super stressful when you have all your eggs in this one basket.
Iterate and Optimize Much Faster
With an evergreen funnel, you get constant feedback on what is converting for your audience. So you can easily adjust your ad budgets, content, and designs to get the most out of your investment.
Create More Consistent Revenue
Even for seasoned membership owners, the best planned launches are still hard to predict. With evergreen, you’ll have a steady stream of data which tells you what to expect financially, helping you run your business more effectively.
Spend More Time On What You Love
Evergreen works even when you aren’t. Because your evergreen funnel is completely automated, you can take that vacation and still grow your membership and bottom line.
In this real membership example, launches led to strong initial growth (year 1). But then the membership hit a Launch Plateau because it got to a size where launch growth only replaced member attrition between launches. Then, in year 4, the membership went evergreen and began to scale again in a big way.

What They’re Saying
“Working with Scott, we more than doubled our investment in less than a year! The power of evergreen is phenomenal!”
“When it comes to all things evergreen, Scott is my go-to guy. In fact, Scott was the first person I thought of to present an evergreen bonus for The Membership Experience and his team has been great to partner with.”
“Your knowledge and expertise on this topic is world class and you have an awesome program. Knowing my numbers… the calculator has given me the confidence to scale my business.”

Hi, I’m Scott Paley
For more than 20 years, I’ve helped hundreds of organizations grow through strategic, creative digital marketing – from big brands like Clairol and Marriott to nonprofits like the Innocence Project and Million Mom March to individual experts like Joan Garry and Carrie Green.
In 2017, I co-founded a very successful membership site that serves nonprofit leaders – the Nonprofit Leadership Lab – which in three years, grew to 2,000 members using the launch model.
But then we hit the “launch plateau”.
When you lose as many members between launches as you gain during launches– that’s the launch plateau. At some point, this happens to every membership – even those with really high retention rates.
Our membership was stagnating even though I knew there was still a ton of room to grow in the market.
That’s when we went evergreen. And it worked!
In less than a year we went from our consistent 2,000 members to more than 4,500 members. We grew fast and with a lot less stress! We were able to help so many more people and organizations and the ripple effect has been enormous.
Now I help others achieve evergreen success.
- I build and maintain evergreen funnels for membership owners through my agency Abstract Edge.
- I train and support teams to go evergreen through the Evergreen Edge Academy.
Me, beyond evergreen…
Besides my work life, I love to travel, read, play piano, sing, and watch the amazin’ New York Mets. Though born and raised in the New York City suburbs, in 2008, I took my business 100% remote and moved with my wife, Sharon, and our two children to Baltimore, Maryland.
