Editor's Notes

  1. There are four characteristics of a qualified prospect. Does the prospect have a true need to purchase what you sell? You may have a prospect that is very interested and excited about what you have to offer, but do they need what you have or do they want what you have? The more they need what you have, the more qualified the prospect. Does the prospect have the authority to make the purchase from a decision making power stand point?
