was BFM started?
BFM Telecoms was originally
created to generate funding for our Youth Radio Development
Programs and projects that are run at a Youth Charity.
was BFM set up outside our own Charity?
We tried to set up
BFM within our own Charity but it proved too difficult with
our "Not for Profit" status. The only solution was
to set it up as a privately run business and donate the profits
to the charity.
make BFM available to other Charities?
With this ongoing funding
source working for our own community project we decided to
allow any Charity to start using it in the same way for their
own funding needs.
As we seek funding
for our own needs using BFM Telecoms, so do other Charities.
BFM telecoms is a funding machine for any registered Charity
& Community group to use as their own.
does BFM belong to those who use it?
The owner of any business
offers products or services to their customers and they receive
benefit in the form of profits from the transaction.
With BFM gaining increased
business, we qualify for increased volume discount and we
use this to further reduce the service price to our customers
and increase the donation factor to our different charities.
does BFM belong to the customer ?
Because BFM is not
a corporate identity striving to achieve profits for shareholders,
there is no need to maintain expensive management infrastructures
to run the organisation.
If we make our services
very attractive to our customers, they will be our main marketing
tool and this eliminates our need to run expensive national
The easiest way to
have our customers want to help us grow and increase the benefit
to our Charities is to give them a "Slice of the Pie".
As our product volume increases and in turn increases the
benefit to the different charities, we also share these profits
with the customer in the form of decreased prices on our services.
We become the
first Telco to contact the customer
when we find that we are able to reduce their bill.
WE DO THIS WITHOUT THE CUSTOMER NEEDING TO CONTACT US FIRST
can BFM do all this without a Corporate infrastructure ?
We plugged into the
major telecoms suppliers for the re-billing of their products
and services, just like what has already happened with the
Electricity Supply industry.
Our supplier runs
the Technical side.
||BFM runs the Business and Support
||Our Customers and individual Charities
run the Marketing side.
perfect partnership !
can you help us to raise more funds?
Everyone that is associated
with BFM are all working in their own Organisations to help
the Community on a full time basis (ourselves included).
If you would like to
help us, the easiest thing you could do is promote us to all
the local businesses in your area - You do this and we may
be able to offer you FREE
HOME PHONE. Since we do not spend our profits
on marketing, we rely on the public taking an interest in
what we are doing and spreading the word around. It could
be for the benefit of your own favourite local charity, or
for any of the groups already registered with us.
Just using our services
is helping, and we thank you in advance for this.
Together we can all
make a difference...........................
