1. Feature Overview
Opportunities in LeadSquared represent your potential deals (for e.g. – cross-sells, up-sells, and other sales opportunities).
Let’s take the example of an insurance company. John Doe has an existing health insurance policy, and he’s shown interest in opting for other insurance policies, such as term insurance, motor insurance and home insurance. The policies he’s shown an interest in are opportunities.
You can now create multiple opportunities on John Doe, to represent term insurance, motor insurance and home insurance. Each of these opportunities will represent different sales opportunities (cross-sells and up-sells). Each opportunity type can be treated as a separate sales pipeline, where you can define different rules and processes (different fields, stages, activities, tasks and automations). Which means, the process you have in place to sell a term insurance policy can be different from the one you have in place to sell a home insurance policy. Your sales users, from the term, motor and home insurance verticals, can work simultaneously on John Doe to convert the deal.
Here are a few more examples –
|Industry||Examples of Opportunities|
|Online Education||A student enrolled for a course on AI, also shows interest in Data Analysis, Machine Learning and Python. The courses he’s shown interest in are opportunities.|
|Schools and Universities||Parents who have two kids, and want both their kids to be admitted in different classes in the same institution. Each of the two kids represents two separate opportunities for the institution.|
|Loans||A customer who has an existing home loan, is also looking to take a personal loan and car loan. The loans he’s shown interest in are opportunities.|
|Credit Cards||A customer who has a Gold credit card has shown interest in upgrading to a Platinum credit card. This up-sell represents an opportunity for the credit card lender.|
