What is a sales opportunity?

A sales opportunity is a contact or an account which has been qualified. This person has entered into your sales cycle and is committed to working with you. You have already contacted, called or met him and know their needs or requirements. The old sales rule says: “The opportunity is a deal that you have the possibility to close!”
