English term or phrase: imminent buyers
Hello. I am now translating training manuals for sales managers. In that manual, it says to
target "imminent buyers" in italic for selling products.
Is it any special term used in sales or marketing area? I have checked about ten dictionaries, but couldn't find this. I really appreciate if anybody kindly give me advice for how I could translate this word.

Thank you,
Momoe
Japanese translation:購入を急いでいるバイヤー (konyuuwo isoideiru buyer)
Explanation:
It depends on whether the manual is formal or more casual. If it is casual, I think 購入を急いでいるバイヤー(isoideiru buyer) sounds better than the other proposed answer. I think what it means is the buyers who are in a hurry to buy (whatever products the company is selling), not the buyer who are taking time and more carefull in purchasing.

Thank you for your help. It was an internal training manuals for sales persons, and your suggestion on the word itself helped. I have checked the dictionaries and knew the meaning, couldn't find the right word to fit in there.

「差し迫った買付人 」 (sasi sematta kaitukenin)


Explanation:
When I looked over the special dictionary, it was with 「差し迫った買いつけ人」.
It might be the thing of " the purchase people for whom it is entreating that it wants." (?)

I hope this will be helped.
