Lead Vs. Prospect
Sometimes, the terms lead and prospect are used interchangeably and can get confusing when your sales team is prospecting.
A cold lead is a potential customer who is not aware of your product and hasn’t expressed any interest in your product or service.
A warm lead refers to a potential customer who is aware of your product and has expressed interest in your product or company earlier. For instance, the lead may have come from a website visit, subscription to your newsletter or ways like visiting your website, subscribing to your newsletter, or downloading a presentation.
The leads that match your target audience and your buyer persona are called qualified leads or sales prospects. Sales prospects are qualified leads that are most likely to purchase your products or services as they match your buyer profile and have also expressed interest in your product.
