Best of the Mission Repair Blog.

I was going through the insights of my blog tonight as I have been patiently waiting for the 1,000,000 Unique Visitor counter to turn (we need about 200 more at this point), and found that our best blog day was:

Yes, we had over 31,000 views on a day a few years ago (we average much lower than this per day now) and it was a special day. We had received a frame for an iPad 2…long before the iPad 2 was released…and we posted it here on our blog. Here’s the infamous picture:

ipad frame

And a link to the original article here. We talked about the frame itself, how a MacBook camera fit directly into the slot where a camera would most likely be, and posted it for the world to see. Looking at the picture now makes me thing “that got all of that attention?!?” Well it did bring 31,000 views on that memorial day and crashed our wordpress site a few times so it probably would have been even more!

There’s a little known tidbit that I’ve never talked about regarding this picture. Apple called me directly about it and discussed how and why I got the part and asked if I would take the image down. We had a peaceful discussion about it, it never went any further, and the picture and article remain here posted on the Mission Repair blog today.

I’m bringing this up because since that post a while ago, we have had a steady increase in blog readers, subscriptions, followers and re-posts. Sometime in the next few hours we will reach 1,000,000 Unique Visitors, and I’m going to stay awake for that. You don’t need to; unless you’re trying to win that iPad Air that I’ve been talking about. Then you should grab a cup of coffee and keep watching. It’s going to happen very soon to make today another Mission Repair Blog moment in history.

I’ll be right here, Ryan

It’s a sign.

Hello there, good morning blog readers!

Good news about my new location in Colorado, and we’re now officially “Finished” with this site. The new sign went up on Saturday!

missionrepairsign

I know, it’s just a sign. However this is a new venture for me because normally our signs are pretty simple and constrained by the city in which we reside, or the building limitations, or some other factors.

My Corporate headquarters and flagship retail store in Lakewood Colorado has what I would consider a “real” sign that’s LED lit and ready for action!

The process is not an easy one; personally I take business signs for granted and don’t think twice about them when I see them. Now that I’ve been in the “sign market” for about a year ordering, designing and having signs installed on our Mission Repair locations, it’s a task all in itself!

At this location, the fruits of my labor have paid off, and we can put this project to bed. See you in the store!!

Take care, Ryan

Welcome our newest employee, Ian.

Good afternoon- if you’ve called into the Mission Repair toll-free number lately, you may have reached Ian; our newest superstar here at our Olathe location.

Ian comes from a customer service background, and I’m not kidding, he’s hit the ground running. The first day he was answering calls and jumping right in. I’m impressed.

You can email him here:

ian@missionrepair.com

Or the next time you call into the Mission Repair main line, you might get him on the phone. Ian has plans to move into the tech department at some point which I am truly looking forward to.

Thanks Ian, welcome to the team. It’s great to have you.

Take care, Ryan

Today is Our 4th Annual Chili Cook-Off!

Good morning! It is one of my favorite days of the year today at Mission:Repair. Our 4th Annual Chili Cook-Off is taking place this afternoon and I’m really excited! There’s nothing like a little friendly competition and a chance to win cash from the boss. We have two different categories for our Cook-Off 1. Best Chili and 2. Best Side Dish (including desserts!). The winner of Best Chili will take home $100 and the Side Dish winner will take home $20. I sneaked upstairs this morning to the kitchenette to take a peak at the competition and I cannot wait to try them all – my stomach is already growling!

Our judges have been recruited from a neighboring business to keep the competition fair and judging begins at noon sharp! Stay tuned this afternoon when we reveal the winners right here on our blog.

Have a great day,

Melanie

Did You Notice Our Logo Changed A Little?

halloween_MRNo, we didn’t redesign our logo, it just got a temporary makeover! Halloween is approaching and we thought it would be fun to spruce up our website. If you have been to MissionRepair.com before, you may have noticed our logo changes around Holidays. This includes 4th of July, Thanksgiving, New Years, Memorial Day and more. It’s one of the ways we have fun around here and a little reminder that we are constantly updating our site.

New Repair Services are added daily as more parts become available to us. If you visit our website and don’t see the repair you need – be sure to give us a call. Chances are, we can source the part and repair your unit! So, whether you need an iPod Charging Port Repair, iPhone Battery Replacement, Galaxy S 4 Screen Repair, etc. be sure to visit us at www.missionrepair.com or call 1-866-638-8402.

Have a great day,

Our “Got Repair” Benefit Is Reaching New Heights!

Hello M:R Nation –

We have hit a momentous number at Mission Repair and that number is 5,000. We have been able to save over 5,000 people some hard earned cash with our Got Repair program in a little over 1.5 years!  What is our “Got Repair program”? Its as simple as this: If you have your broken device repaired with Mission Repair, you will never pay full price for the same repair on the same device again!

You already know your iPhone or iPad is not all that durable.  You just saw it crack before your very eyes. So if you have it repaired, you know full and well that you have a chance of damaging it again.

Imagine walking into a repair center, having your iPod Touch screen repaired, dropping it on the way out and re-cracking the screen. This has actually happened and this is where the Got Repair program comes into play. That customer had to pay just a fraction of what they just paid to have it re-repaired. Of course we offered if up for free in this instance (we felt bad) but the customer declined and paid the Got Repair price.

With that explanation of the Got Repair program, look at this number one more time…5,000! There have been over 5,000 people that know, not only can you drop and crack your device once, but twice, if not three times! So why not cover yourself here? We are not talking insurance, we are talking a massive discount, just for being our customer. There is no deductible, no paper work and no extra charge. It comes automatically with your Mission Repair service!

Keep in mind, we are talking about physical damage here. You already have awesome warranty coverage with Mission Repair, but add on to that accidental damage. Its the very reason we are called the intelligent choice by many people. It just makes sense choosing Mission Repair for your repair needs. Got Repair is attached to each one of our services, so you can bet we have you covered on whatever you need repaired!

So, here’s to another 5,000 customers that we can help save time, money and sanity with!

Cheers, Troy
