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

Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 1.46.55 PM

Happy Labor Day weekend, it’s almost here!

Mission Repair will be closed Labor Day, but we’re still here Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm local time. Rather than laboring at work, at home, or in the yard, a lot of consumers put their energy toward some serious bargain hunting on this special day. We’re here to help!

Come on down to one of our locations or place your order online and use coupon code “LABOROFLOVE” for a 15% discount on your new repair order now through Sunday 9/6/15 at midnight.

If you are stopping by one of our walk-in locations be sure to print off this blog and present it to your customer service representative. We hope you get to relax on Monday, fire up the BBQ, go to the lake, stay in to clean the house or do whatever makes you happy. But if you’re looking to save on that next iPhone, Mac or tablet repair, now is the time.

Have a great weekend,

Your Friends At Mission:Repair

(Offer cannot be combined with any other coupon, including Got Repair. Valid on NEW orders only. Expires 9/6/15 at midnight.)

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

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

Mission Repair Company Picnic!

Hello M:R Nation –

This coming Sunday we will be having our very first company picnic! I know, I know…how could we be in business this long and never have a picnic? I really don’t have a good answer for that other than its either too hot or too cold to do anything outdoors in Kansas. We have decided to take a chance this year and it looks like it will pay off. With a high of only 78 degrees, things are looking good for the festivities.

Not Quite…

We are using this picnic to make up for our lost 6 months of Olympic events for 2013. This year, we are sending one of our lucky employees to Key West for some fun in the ocean. We have 6 different events that range from just plain scary, to just plain stupid. That mixed with some great KC BBQ and cold Coke, we are going to have one heck of a time! Because of this, we will be closing a little early on Sunday (3:00pm), so please call (866-638-8402), chat or come in before then to have your iPhone, iPad or Android serviced or any questions answered!

Cheers, Troy
