Speaking of Christmas shopping…

Hello again on this fine Friday afternoon!

I know that it’s only September, but Santa is working on filling his sleigh with amazing presents as we speak. Maybe there’s something that Santa can’t deliver – but Mission Repair can!

Since there’s only 99 days until Christmas, it’s seems like it’s time to start thinking about the holiday season that’s approaching. Listen, I’ve gone both ways…shopped and prepared early for Christmas (always feels great!) and waited until the day before to find that perfect gift for that special someone (doesn’t feel so great.) So I’m trying to encourage all of us to start early and get on the “feels great” plan!

Every year we have thousands of customers send in their devices for repair each December, and a lot of them are scrambling to get their devices repaired as Christmas presents! That’s right, this is a present that you can’t get in stores, and you can’t get from Santa (he doesn’t have any elves that repair electronics!) but you can get from Mission Repair.

iPad repairs are a huge selling service here at Mission Repair and we have parts in stock and incredible prices. We won’t bring it to you in a sleigh, but it’ll arrive via FedEx or you can visit one of our locations to have the magic performed. If you get your orders in now, there’s plenty of time to get it back before the Christmas holiday so don’t delay!

Have a great weekend, Ryan

Looks like I’m heading to do some shopping tomorrow to get my gift-giving list started!

Reality check. It’s time to get out the Halloween lights!

Good afternoon!

It’s a strange feeling, but 2015 is moving right along. I found this graphic on Facebook today and it struck me as kind of a surprise. If you count today, here are a few stats that might interest you:

This means that there are a few holidays coming up and a few time off requests from my employees that need to be fulfilled. Please note that Mission Repair, Inc. will be open every day until our next holiday off which is Thanksgiving, Thursday November 26th, 2015. I can’t believe that I’m already talking about Thanksgiving! It’s still early, but when I see that we are under 100 days until Christmas, things start to get a little crazy around this time of year.

So as we close up on a Friday afternoon, reflect on the short amount of time we have left in the year to get things accomplished. It’s been a busy year so far for us here at Mission Repair and for me personally as well. What will 2016 bring? We can talk about that in 106 days, on January 1st! Just in time for my birthday.

Have a great weekend, Ryan

Your order has shipped!

“Thank you!!! You guys rock.”

The single line customer testimonal we received from our customer, Peter, when he got his email that his iPad was shipping back to him.

This brings up a great point that I don’t talk about too much…but monthly we repair thousands of devices for customers and all goes to plan. Our process works, our customers are happy for it, and we get to repair/service another day.

Thank you Peter for that awesome email. That kind of thing makes the world a better place. It was a great start to my day…TGIF!

Take care, Ryan

One Million Blog Reads – it’s just around the corner!

Good morning, thanks for checking out the blog today!

Actually the number ONE MILLION is becoming part of a HUGE Mission Repair Celebration that’s soon to come. When we reach ONE MILLION unique Blog Readers (just like you); we are all going to party. As of today:

We are finalaizing preparations now for the biggest discounts that you’ve ever seen, and we will have lots of fun at each of our locations on this momentus day. I have so many stats, so much data, and have had so much fun being a professional blogger that it’s really exciting to know that soon my blog will reach the 1 Million mark and I’m just going to share my excitement and thanks to everyone.

I’ve been asked many times “do you ever get writers block?” Heck yeah I do. Also, “how did you start your blog?”

That second question is simple. Create a blog on a free blog site, name it, and start typing. In fact, I follow several blogs including past Mission Repair customers, vendors, and others that I just admire. If you’ve got a blog that you author or if I can help you get started on your own blog, let me know and I’ll be happy to be a part of your blog circle. Just reply to post in the comments section and I’m there!

So the big day is coming…the “Mission Repair Million Celebration”…we get about 10,000 new readers each month, so at this pace sometime in October we should be there as I calculated earlier in the year. It will happen when it happens, but rest assured that I’ll be right here to share in the big day.

Thanks for reading, Ryan

iPhone 6S Repairs – COMING SOON!

Hello there friends!

Well, I’m due for an upgrade and I think that I’ll be waiting for the iPhone 6S to release to make the switch. I don’t know, I just feel like I deserve something new. For crying out loud even my son has the iPhone 6 Plus and I he keeps rubbing it in my face 😉

Now that the new version of the iPhone is out, it looks like there will be a new trend here at Mission Repair and the iPhone 6S Screen repairs are being added as we speak (as well as the 6S Plus!) and we are gearing and ordering inventory as we speak.

Why buy the 6S?

The headliner, the show-stopper, the fundamental reason -Apple thinks- you should buy an iPhone 6S. 3D Touch brings another dimension to how you operate your smartphone. Using the new taptic engine, the iPhone 6S’s display can measure how hard you press down on it. Deeper presses on apps will bring up an option menu or provide short cuts. Two examples Apple gave were snapping a quick selfie with a deep press, and viewing a ‘Live Photo’. Sounds like I need to try it!

Both myself and my business are getting ready for the iPhone 6S launch. 5,4,3,2,1! They will be here before you know it!

Take care, Ryan
