Visitor vs. Lead vs. Opportunity

What is a Visitor vs. Lead vs. Opportunity?

A visitor is a casual, anonymous individual viewing the website without any intention or much interest in pursuing further action or clicks. They may or may not become a lead. A visitor converts to a lead when it becomes clear they are interested in the product or service offered. Leads take positive action, such as opting-in to receive a newsletter or offers, engaging in webinars, or adding to a blog. Leads provide the possibility for future business. Their activity indicates how close they are to making a buying decision. A lead becomes an opportunity once they have identified a need, become interested in buying the product or service, and has made contact with sales / sales rep. An opportunity becomes a customer and presents a chance to close the deal when their activity will result in future revenue / sale.
