User actions, such as downloading a pdf guide, that indicate that the person might be interested in becoming a customer in the future are called micro conversions. Other actions could include subscribing to an email list, greater-than-average session duration and more.

Micro conversions are also called “soft conversions” and tracking them could ensure appropriate use of campaigns and help a customer to the reach the stage of a hard conversion.
