Back to school – I just had a moment…

Hello folks,

After my lunch with Brae, it’s Thursday afternoon and it seems like the entire country is going back to school right now; my son Casey was just in my office this morning (he had an interview at the Olathe Police department, kind of cool!) and we were discussing his LAST YEAR of school. He is going to be a Senior this year, and then like some sort of magic – he will be done with school and off to bigger and better things. We aren’t quite sure what that means for him yet…a career in law enforcement? Become a chef? Who knows for sure…but college is in his future and right around the corner.

What I realized is that I just registered my youngest child for his senior year in high school. This is it, no more school registrations for me! I can just remember when I was saying “I can’t wait until I get both of my kids into Kindergarten. That will be great”. Well, not only is my daughter already in her 3rd year of college (holy moly) but my son is finishing High School this year. Simply amazing.

I can tell that the entire country is in “Back to School” mode and it pretty much effects everyone, even those without children. I’ve seen a ton of Facebook posts today and many kids are starting back up already! Casey goes back next Thursday to begin the first day of his last year of school, and I know he’s 50% excited and 50% dreading that summer is already over.

We’re in the Back to School Spirit here at Mission Repair too. In fact, Melanie and I are working on a Newsletter that will release this afternoon with an awesome back to school special. We know you’re busy, and we can seen by our huge increase in orders that families are scrambling to get devices fixed before the school year (in fact, the school IT departments are back from vacation and sending in Purchase Orders like crazy!) and we want to help if we can. Our Newsletter special will help offset some of the costs that families might be incurring with all of the back to school madness. Want to be a part of the Newsletter blast? Just sign up here and you’ll get a copy later today!

Thanks again for reading everyone, and I’ll be back this afternoon in your email inbox with the Mission Repair “Back To School” special!

Take care, Ryan

New Mobile Site = launched!

Countdown…5-4-3-2-1 and we have liftoff!

We just launched our newest version of our mobile site today and I have to say, it turned out great!

Mission Repair

Now on MissionRepair.com we have updated, innovated, and invigorated our mobile site (that’s the website that you see from your mobile phone) to be easier to use. In fact, we have a complete solution for browsing prices and even checking out on your hand-held device that is easier than ever before.

What brought on this change?

During our website analysis we noticed over 10,000 visitors a month that use a smartphone to view our website were dropping off after the first page. Why were a lot of you doing that? I already know…it’s because our mobile landing page was pretty bad (I admit it) and we have now solved the problem. A special thanks Melanie in the graphics department, she pushed me to make the change happen quickly!

So, if you’re reading this blog on a smartphone (like I know a lot of you do), all you need to do now is click this link to see what’s new in the Mission Repair mobile world. It’s refreshing. If you’re not on a mobile device, then you’ll be presented with the same awesome webpage that you’ve come to know and love.

Have a great weekend everyone – I’ll be working tomorrow to catch up on a few loose ends here at the office so if you need me you know where I’ll be.

Take care, Ryan

Cracked iPad Screen? Need A Discount ?

Hello M:R Nation –

Have you recently had the unfortunate experience of cracking the glass on your iPad? I completely feel your pain x 3! If you read this blog on a regular basis, you should be privy to the fact that my son has cracked the glass on our family iPad 2, three times over. Ok, so one of those occasions may have been my wife, but I still can’t get an accurate story!

You understand that the thing needs to be repaired. Not only for the sake of using it, but for safety reasons as well. The glass on iPads are sharp and are not fused to the LCD like smartphones and other tablets, making it much easier for the glass to fall out and injure. However, you are also willing to wait on a good deal to come around!

I totally get it and am of the same school of thought!

It took me a good while to finally get going and fix our iPad and I’m surrounded by technicians on a daily basis that could fix me up in a matter of minutes. Just put some clear tape over it until Mission Repair runs another special. Why pay full price if you can wait a day and possibly get a discount? But sometimes that day turns into weeks and months or years!

How about we put an and to the waiting and get started on your repair today? To help this process along, I am going to offer a special blog reader only discount! If you email coupons@missionrepair.com, we will send you a 15% coupon code that you can use towards getting that iPad repaired! What better time to finally have your beloved iPad repaired than now?

This coupon is good for every model of iPad repair and for any service actually! So if you don’t have a broken price of glass, but do have an LCD issue, this coupon is for you as well! This coupon code will expire on 1/31/14 and can only be used once per order. So act fast and email us!

Cheers, Troy

So, You Received An iPad For Christmas?

Hello M:R Nation and New iPad Owners –

Congratulations on your brand new iPad! Whether this is your very first iPad or a replacement for an older model, you are ecstatic about the technology in your hands! This is a very understandable emotion to have!

Now, what happens if that technology accidentally slips out of your hands? As in, you drop it and damage your brand new gift! This is obviously not something you would like to think about at the moment, but it is an unfortunate reality of iPad ownership :-(. While there are many thoughts on how to prevent damaging your brand new iPad and many folks will go the whole life of their iPad ownership without said damage, I find that more often than not, if you have an iPad in your hands… it will be damaged at some point.

Cracked iPad Glass

My personal experience!

Now, that last statement I made could just be a product of my environment or maybe even my personal experience (3 damaged iPads later) but I think it’s important that you know what can and might just happen to your awesome new gift!

Ok, I think I have drilled the point long enough…but now what? Well, this is where Mission Repair comes in! We have worked for years perfecting the art of iPad Repair and we are well equipped to handle any iPad issue, BIG or small! We are your ally in this war against gravity and while we don’t offer much in the way of a gravity defying case, we are here to clean up the mess and make it right after the battle!

Enough of the analogies? Fair enough, let me give you some actual useful information that I think will be very important to any iPad user moving forward and please feel free to hand this out to your friends.

For starters, here is a direct link to our iPad Repair services: iPad Repair! Next, our contact information. Click here: Mission Repair and save us to your computer, smartphone or even iPad! It will be very useful to have this information close if you do happen to have an unfortunate spill! Lastly, let me give you peace of mind… We understand how nerve wrecking it can be to send your iPad out for repair and can assure you of this, we will treat your iPad as if it was our own. From start to finish, we will handle it with care and let only highly trained technicians complete repairs on your device. No, it will not be me repairing your iPad :-)!

If you have any further questions, please contact me directly at troy@missionrepair.com!

Cheers, Troy

iPad Air Glass Repair!

Hello M:R Nation –

The iPad Air is a phenomenal tablet. It has the looks, the function and the power that makes and Apple product… well, an Apple product. It is as thin as a pencil, as beautiful as the iPad Mini and faster than any iPad to date. An A7 chip and 64-Bit architecture will indeed do that for you.

When you spend $400-$500 on something, you expect it to be in the realm of awesomeness that iPad Air is in. You also expect to keep it for a long period of time and this is where Mission Repair comes in!

Cracked iPad Air screen

This is less than ideal…

We are here for you and your iPad Air and are prepared for any issue that you might have. Now, the most common issue that we have seen to date is the dreaded cracked screen. While the iPad Airs are still usable, it is very disruptive (to say the least) to maneuver around large shards of glass. It’s a dangerous game of “dodge the cut” everything you want to play “Candy Crush”.

While many of you reading this might not have a cracked screen just yet, let me just tell you that it is inevitable. My son has cracked his iPad 2 screen 3 times and that was with a case on it. It just happens. This is why you need to be ready and have us in your back pocket should such a time arise!

So if you are already in this pickle, here are a couple of helpful links to get your repair started:  iPad Air Glass Repair – Black and iPad Air Glass Repair- White. This will get you well on your way to a crack free iPad Air! If you are an iPad Air owner and want to keep us close, save our contact information (Mission Repair) and never hesitate to give us a call!

Cheers, Troy

11,000 Facebook likes and climbing!

Hello friends.

This is my first breath of the day – it’s a rocking Monday here at the Mission Repair headquarters. I thought this would be the calm before the shopping “storm” that’s headed our way on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Ready – set – get your wallets out because the holiday shopping season is here!

So we’ve been fairly active on Facebook lately and just cracked 11,000 likes this morning. This is great news because the word is spreading fast and more and more people are talking about Mission Repair. I mean, we’re not Apple (that has almost 1 million likes I might add) but we are fans of Apple, and the Apple service specialists. You might even call us Apple geniuses but I wouldn’t want to take that title from the employees that work at the Apple Stores…we’ll let them have it 😉

Is this exciting news for you? Well, maybe not as exciting as it is to me, but it is a reminder to like us on Facebook so you can get the latest specials and posts that just might be of interest to you. It might even save you some righteous bucks on your next iPad repair.

I know for a fact that if you take a cracked iPad to the Genius Bar at Apple, you’ll be spending a heck of a lot more than if you brought it to Mission Repair – and we service the entire country.

Who’s the genius now?

Have a good afternoon, Ryan
