What are leads?

Previously on our blog Guide for the correct choice of a CRM Previously on our blog Guide for the correct choice of a CRM we talked about the stages that Odoo CRM uses such as opportunities, qualified, sales, etc. but there is a previous stage called "Leads" (people who could be interested in your business), which are achieved through marketing strategies, who visited your website or signed up for the newsletter, from advertising, through events, among others.
