What is a sales prospect?

A lead that has been qualified as a potential customer.

A sales prospect is a lead that has been evaluated and deemed likely to become a customer. This qualification process often involves assessing the lead's needs, budget, and authority to make purchasing decisions.

A sales prospect is a potential customer who has been identified as having a higher likelihood of purchasing a product or service compared to a general lead. The process of qualifying a lead into a prospect involves evaluating various factors such as the prospect’s specific needs, their budget, the timeline for making a purchase, and their authority within their organization to make purchasing decisions. Sales professionals typically engage more deeply with prospects through tailored communications, presentations, and product demonstrations to address their unique requirements and move them further along the sales funnel towards making a purchase decision.
