Opportunities vs Sales Qualified Leads


Sales Qualified Leads

What is it?

Opportunities represents a qualified lead that indicates the potential for a deal. Regardless of a business’s unique qualification criteria, an opportunity represents a higher probability of closing.

A Sales Qualified Lead (SQL) is a prospect that meets certain conditions as defined by the sales process. SQLs are middle of the funnel, having been qualified first by marketing or a lead setting team, and are now ready to be moved to the next stage in the sales process.
