- In Summary
The administration of the membership is by a purposely built software program.
We all know how difficult it is to raise funds. This membership has been created to assist worthwhile community projects through donations.
The people who donate are usually intimately involved with the project, so the amount able to be raised is limited.
Getting others to donate who are not involved with a project can be hard. People who donate want to have something tangible in return for their donation rather than just the "feel good" factor.
ALGMO was created by a 25 year National medal holder for services to the community, Grenville Silvester. The membership is designed to widen the donation pool for a local project, as well as offering those donating tangible products that 80% of the population want.
The products that ALGMO members receive are: to benefit from member only specials; to be a member with others that benefit; to receive winnings; to receive, regular, unique membership reports and are able to communicate to a friendly and helpful central administration – all of this at a very affordable rate and at the same time donating to an approved and worthwhile local community cause.
Members see good value at being a member of ALGMO! That is why they join! That is why they are happy for ALGMO to donate some of their money to a community project that they can nominate.
The membership uses the members area of http://algmo.biz to communicate. This site provides news and super special panels, member only specials directory that can be searched by Country, State and Category, a "My Messages" tab to receive personal messages and specific details of their membership and a link to contact the support desk.
Application for membership is made through the various points on the ALGMO web site. Membership can only be approved after speaking with a certified ALGMO Manager.
All Applicants are provided the necessary information on the ALGMO web site, as well as other information relayed to them by the contacting ALGMO manager.
All members have access to the Members Advocate by way of phone, email, skype, personal and Post Office address. A mobile phone is used to ensure the Members Advocate is available to members 24/7. A 1300 number (or equivalent) is not used because those numbers hide the true identity of the phone. (A 1300 number is just diverted to a secret number). ALGMO uses a number that is traceable and easily accessible by the members.
There are three levels of membership
A Bronze membership is for six months.
Bronze members are allocated a syndicate which plays a Pick 5 entry every Saturday night for six months. Bronze members have access to the ALGMO advertising site by way of a User Name and Password. The Bronze member can view and take advantage of member specials, but cannot place ads. They are provided weekly summary reporting relating to Saturday lotto.
Bronze membership is automatically renewed every six months unless the member cancels prior to the expiry date.
The member must contact the support desk prior to this date to either renew their membership and/or claim the accumulated winnings.
Silver members have full access to the ALGMO advertising site, have 15 ad spots and have priority over the premium advertising positions on the site. They do not participate in lotto and are not provided any lotto wins. They receive reporting as required or requested.
Silver membership is renewed every four months unless the member cancels their membership.
Silver membership is attractive to those who may have a business and see the value in paying $0.55 per week for a tax deductable advertising spot without needing the chance of a big win at lotto and receiving regular reports.
Gold membership is ongoing which involves an ongoing monthly payment.
Gold members are required to complete an Ezidebit form that allows ongoing membership until the member wishes to cancel membership.
Gold members are allocated 15 ad spots, have full access to the ALGMO advertising site and are allocated a syndicate which has three chances to win per week.
The games that are played are:
- Pick 6 every Tuesday
- PowerHit20 every Thursday
- Pick 5 every Saturday
Please note that the Tatts Group made changes to Powerball on Thursday 7th March 2013. The ALGMO Video does not reflect these changes. The changes are explained by the members advocate once contact is made.
Gold members receive a report on each night’s draw as well as a set of summary reports at the end of each week.
Gold members receive an SMS statement on the 28th of each month.
Payment for Gold membership is monthly and is secured the first business day of the month. Members should however allow for funds to be secured sometime during the first three business days of the month, allowing for bank holidays or any unforeseen issues with their accounts.
Lotto wins are credited to a Gold Member’s statement and hence go to reducing the monthly payment owing to maintain their membership. Gold Members receive a statement on their mobile phone on 28th of each month. The SMS will read, as an example. ALGMO: Review ads on the site. $XX.xx is to be withdrawn from your nominated account next week. Description on bank statement will start with EZIDEBIT.
The maximum amount for Gold membership, as of the 1st May 2011 is $66.
Hence $XX.xx = $66 minus lotto wins for the past month. If $XX.xx = 0 then the member has won more than $66 during the past month and nothing is withdrawn from their account.
If payment is not successful during the first three business days of the month the Gold member is contacted by phone, text and or email. If payment is not made by the 5th business day of the month then the membership is cancelled and associated ads withdrawn. It is so important to contact support (support desk) before the first week of the month if something effects payment. Remember to update your Card expiry dates and notify support if there are any changes to the nominated account. We can usually come to some arrangement to maintain your membership.
Gold Members access the official www.tattersalls.com.au site through the Link on their ALGMO web site. Under the ALG Member’s Only heading click on Check Numbers and Dividends. Gold Members can view past draws, attain results and dividends and access all official lotto information.
Access to membership is $144 for all membership levels, which includes a modest administration fee.
There are only 15 members per syndicate group for both Bronze and Gold members.
Each Bronze and Gold member fully understands that he/she is paying post tax monies amounting to 1/15 of the net cost of the customer fee for the lotto games that are purchased. The cost of membership is offset by 1/15 of any wins from the syndicate that the member is allocated to.
There is no profit made by the syndicator and therefore no tax payable by the syndicator in relation to the 1/15 share of games which is a direct post tax payment from the member to the syndicator.
All membership payments are made in arrears or payment for service for goods supplied. There are no advance payments.
Emphasis is on closed membership advertising and donation. All gross profit is from advertising, NOT Lotto. Therefore it cannot be argued the membership is running a lotto business. The Lotto component is just one of the features to provide member benefits.
It is important for members and authorities to understand that ALGMO membership offers advertising; fundraising strategy, documentation and administration; donation structure and procedure; weekly reporting and 24/7 helpdesk – as well as payment of lotto wins to its members based on syndication practices.
All registered lotto tickets are purchased from Tatts registered outlet 0100556, Ivanhoe Plaza Jackpot Lotto. The Syndicator Arrangement as described on each members personal site describes how ALGMO guarantees to provide members winnings from lotto. It describes the structure and process to ensure legality and surety to members.
The member understands that games are not been on-sold, but are held in the name of the syndicator. The syndicator provides an undertaking, through the Syndicator Arrangement, that all wins are paid to members of the syndicate.
Division 1 or 2 wins will be notified and paid directly to the member. Minor division wins will go toward reducing the monthly membership payment of Gold members. Bronze members are paid at the end of their 6 month membership. All members can familiarise themselves with the ‘Syndicator arrangement’ in the news items.
Weekly reports sent to all members contain all required information to ensure that the membership is managed in a proper and responsible manner. All members are encouraged to ask questions of the member’s advocate who is contactable by phone and email. Members are free to cancel their membership if they are not provided full and honest answers to their questions.
All members can download a Dividend Chart report on the ALGMO site. This report goes a long way in explaining the benefits of the games we play to provide winnings to Bronze and Gold members.
An updated Dividend Chart Report is provided to Gold members on Sundays and Bronze members receive the Saturday night component with their report.
An Affiliate Donation Program (ADP) is available for Clubs, Charities, or Groups, as well as other bodies accepted by the Member’s Advocate.
Individuals are also able to become affiliates if accepted by the Member’s Advocate.
Nominations of Affiliates are by visitors, existing members and applicants, through the Fundraising page
The nominated affiliate is contacted by an ALGMO manager who describes what the membership offers with the aid of official ALGMO resources.
The nominated affiliate identifies a project and how the donated funds will be utilised.
ALGMO management approves the project and the Individual, Club, Charity or Group becomes registered under the ADP and is referred to as an Affiliate.
The Affiliate is provided with both:
- A banner. Vis http://algmo.biz/banners
- Each affiliate has their own account page which can be accessed by logging in
- Each affiliate is given access to their individual affiliates site via the Affiliates login on the Affiliates page. where they have access to their personalised banner.
- An affiliate can request its stakeholders to attach this simple yet attractive and effective banner system to any web pages that they may have access to. This will greatly increase donation potential for the affiliate.
- The banner, upon been clicked on directs a person to the ALGMO web site with their affiliate name already selected. The ALGMO computer server identifies the user’s computer and stores its ID for 13 weeks. If a person using that computer joins up within 13 weeks, then the affiliate whose banner it was when first clicked, is accredited to that membership and receives the donation even if the application is made through another banner.
- Masters of a circular and a pamphlet are supplied to the Affiliate.
The direct link (URL) to the ADP web page is included in both.
The Affiliate can hand them out during fundraising or promotional events, provide them to customers or people just making an enquiry, or, include them in their own documentation.
The more people who see the circular of pamphlet, the more who will ring ALGMO. The more members, the bigger the donations.
The direct link to the Fundraising web page can be supplied with any documentation!
With either of these two ways, an individual entering the ADP page selects the affiliate they wish donations to be made. They receive an overview of the ALGMO membership and the benefit to the chosen affiliate. They leave their contact details so an ALGMO Manager can contact them.
An ALGMO manager replies to the lodgement of interest, describes the membership in more detail with the aid of ALGMO official resources and completes the necessary documentation for membership.
An Affiliate is able to monitor the number of members donating to them from their Affiliate site and is therefore able to reconcile donations made from ALGMO.
The affiliate is paid a $30 donation per new membership, Bronze membership renewal or an upgrade to Silver or Gold . A further $50 annual donation per financial membership is made for Silver and Gold membership upgrades.
This means that a sporting club that becomes an affiliate and 30 of its stakeholders become bronze members; the club would receive an immediate donation of $900, with further donations as members renew or upgrade their membership.
A social club of an organisation could get 50 people to join as Bronze members and receive $1500 immediately. If 60% of those renewed their membership twice, they would receive a further $1800 in the first year. If 30% upgraded to Silver or Gold membership, a further $450 donation would be realised in that first year with a $750 yearly ongoing donation. That equals $3750 in the first year with the potential of $2550 ongoing annual donation. All that for just 50 people joining the ALGMO membership! That would go a long way toward the end of year Christmas party, trip or hampers.
A Group whose stakeholders placed their affiliate banner on 1000 web pages would attract 20 members per week. The Group would initially receive a weekly donation base of $600 PLUS renewals !! With 80% renewals or upgrades, that would mean after 6 months they would be receiving a further $480 = $1080 per week. Wow!!!! That is an easy way to finance a worthwhile community or social project!
There is a properly structured ALGMO Sales Management Program.
An ALGMO sales manager receives qualified leads through the Fundraising page and is renumerated for service based on performance.
The manager is supplied with all material and training required to properly inform membership applicants and affiliates.
We have a strict code of conduct for our sales managers to ensure the integrity of ALGMO's purpose.
Any members wishing to apply for a management position should do so by contacting the Member’s Advocate.
The ALGMO catchphrase of HELP US, HELP YOU, HELP OTHERS summarises what ALGMO membership is about.
ALGMO offers fantastic value to members and even saves a lot of money for those that used to play lotto on their own.
Members are fully informed and treated as valued members of the community who are doing something for their community.
Affiliates now have a way of raising significant donations without having to spend much time or resources. – The ALGMO membership attracts people from afar to become members and therefore the affiliate receives their donations from a much larger pool than relying on local events or efforts.
If you wish to explore opportunities on how you can benefit from the affiliate program, how to upgrade, or if you need any clarification on the membership, please ring us at the support desk.
If you know anyone who wants to raise funds for a project, let them know about us. Nominate them in the fundraising tab and we will contact you, then contact them to answer any of their questions.
If you know anyone who wants to join the membership, get them to access the www.algmo.biz site and register their interest on one of the application tabs. If they use the fundraising tab and do not know who to donate to, get them to just press select and leave their name, postcode and contact number. We will phone them and explain the membership to them as well as who the affiliate members are – you do not have to do anything – we do it all.
