Frequently Asked Questions



How does Leads Club work?

Del Amo Leads Club meets weekly to exchange quality business leads. Members present a thirty second presentation about their business at the opening and closing of each meeting. Usually three members speak in more detail about their business each week. Leads are passed among members by way of Lead cards that refer a member to a potential customer.


Each member in our club fills an exclusive business category, thus eliminating any competition among members. Our club has many members from a variety of business categories.
