“We weren’t looking to reinvent the wheel, just fill a void we thought existed in our community,” said San Tan Leads founder, Dewayne Castillo. “I would attend other networking group meetings in the area and find 2-3 members. San Tan Valley is a growing and diverse area that needed a group to help members establish themselves and build their reputations. We feel we are accomplishing those goals and providing our community quality services at the same time.”
San Tan Leads follows a ‘one-business-per-industry’ format to ensure members do not compete with one another. Members must have been in business for at least one year in order to join. Annual dues go toward promoting both the group and individual businesses, including links to personal sites on www.santanleads.com, social media marketing, a business leads book and listing on the official San Tan Leads magnet – distributed by several Home Owner’s Associations in San Tan Valley to new residents.
“We try to do things better for our members and think of new ways to get their names in front of potential customers,” Castillo explained. “We pass more business among ourselves than groups three times our size.”
The San Tan Valley Chapter of San Tan Leads meets every Tuesday, 7:30 a.m. at the Queen Creek Olive Mill – 25062 S Meridian Rd. The group is also proud to announce the launch of its Gilbert chapter, meeting Wednesdays, 7:30 a.m. at Midfirst Bank at the intersection of Ray and Cooper. Interested businesses may attend up to two meetings for free before applying for membership. For more information, contact San Tan Leads at 602-443-0073, or online at www.santanleads.com.
