20 Things a GM Must Do Every Week

M-GettyImages-514475757-1

M-GettyImages-628110734-1A professional juggler once told me that the only way to learn to juggle six balls at the same time is to try to juggle seven. In today’s retail environment, the position of general manager requires specialized expertise and diversity of knowledge. It is not uncommon for a qualified GM to command an annual income north of $500,000 and into the seven digits; they can virtually write their own pay plan.

I know what you’re thinking right now: “What in the hell is Ziegler smoking?” You know plenty of general managers who make good money, but not that kind of money. The truth is that most GMs are not executives. They are glorified general sales managers. Are you among them?

There is a reason some of the large public companies struggle with acquisitions of new dealerships and expansion of their brands: There is a huge shortage of executive general managers who can successfully run a large-volume dealership or dealership group.

Executive GMs understand how to run a complex organization. Sales ability is a minor qualification. They possess finely tuned organizational and productivity skills. They have advertising and marketing acumen. They have learned how to focus and multitask while dealing with unexpected and disruptive issues. It’s an intense position for an intense person who performs well under stress.

After 42 years in the car business as a top-performing salesman, executive manager, consultant and trainer, I have earned my reputation for helping dealers and GMs graduate to the big numbers. I know what it takes because I’ve seen it and done it. I know there are at least 20 things every GM must do every week to earn their title and perform at a high level.

So, for the next minutes, let’s pretend I’m the new GM at your store. Here’s what I would do.

Jim and DebbieJim and Debbie Ziegler are proud to announce we’re bringing it back to the Beach in February… February 12th-13th at the Marriott Suites, Sand Key, in Clearwater Beach, Florida.

NEW BLOOD…
*******************************
It was a painful revelation for the Dawg when I realized almost every conference was putting the same speakers on stage over and over again. NOT, that these people aren’t talented and they do have a lot to offer, they’re friends of mine, BUT, how many times do you want to watch the same ole movie over and over again. Some of these conferences are starting to look like the movie “Groundhog Day”. It’s a great movie, but we’ve seen it.

SO, Debbie and the Dawg are putting some really new exciting people into the Mix that you haven’t seen at other conferences, or at least they’re NOT over-exposed.

Internet Battle Plan XXIII (23) is going to be spectacular with a lot of great technology sales and marketing session, internet, website conversion… and the new king of Facebook Ads teaching how to fill the sales funnel until that sucker overflows with qualified buyers. We’ve got phone skills experts, video sales and marketing experts on stage and at the back of the room. The Dawg and some of his friends will absolutely be back with new material you’ve never heard before BUT there are a lot of new fresh faces, concepts, processes and ideas you will be amazed.

NO BREAKOUT SESSIONS
**********************************
One session at a time, all in the same big room. Every attendee will see and hear every speaker and get all of the information. You don’t have to choose which session you want to attend and miss another one that was probably better. Did you ever go to a conference that had 20 sessions happening at the same time and you were made the worst possible choice wishing you were in one of the other rooms?

REDUCED ADMISSION
*********************************
1000’s of people have attended Internet Battle Plan events for $995 and even $1500 a ticket. We want to over flow the room, so here’s the deal Tickets will be $595 per person to attend and Dealer Principals and General Managers attend FREE.

COCKTAIL RECEPTION
**********************************
On the first night, February 12th, we’re having an out door cocktail reception (Weather permitting, this is Florida, not Minnesota) with food and bar, and entertainment by The Dawg’s favorite Central Florida local band, “The Band 4Play” Not just music, but these guys will bring fun and energy to the party..

THERE YOU HAVE IT
**********************************
New exciting speakers with new high content and profitable ideas, High energy and great venue. (We have a special rate at the hotel) Live Band Cocktail Reception with The Dawg’s favorite band, you’ll get to hear all the speakers and the price is greatly reduced to make it more affordable for your company to pay.

Sales Rock Stars Still Exist

In an era where manufacturers and hostile vendors are telling dealers to reduce salesperson pay plans, I can name 30 to 40 people off the top of my head who are making more than $40,000 a month selling cars. And they’re doing it in all kinds of markets.These individuals come from all backgrounds, are of different ages, have different makeups, and sell both imports and domestics. But they have two things common: They all became a brand within a brand, a dealership within a dealership. See, these individuals reach out to their communities and generate their own business and manage relationships and referrals.
