We spend an awful lot of time around the Mission Repair headquarters deciding on what to blog about next and when. There are days that I wonder if it’s worth the work – I mean we have to stop what we are doing, come up with a topic, write about it, proofread it (I know we make mistakes – me especially), make sure the links are working and post it. There are times that I can knock out a few great blogs (like this morning) but other times issues throughout the day take precedence and inevitably take me off of my path.
This morning I received an email from Lisa L., one of the Mission Repair Blog Subscribers…I’ll cut and paste the part that I found especially helpful:
“Hello Ryan, thanks for your blogs. I like when I open my mailbox to see if there are any specials. We have 9 apple devices in our home and my teenage son has already been back in your shop in Lakewood twice because he can’t seem to keep his i-pod from hitting the ground. He’s the starting running back on the Lakewood HS team and I hope he doesn’t drop the ball next year as much as he does his i-pod!! Thanks again, can I get the 4th of July special if I place my order monday?
Just when I think “I wonder if it’s worth it?”, I get an email like this from a blog fan and my question is answered. It is worth the work, it defines Mission Repair and separates us from the competition – because these kinds of emails drive me to continue and validate our efforts.
So thank you Lisa for the awesome email. I know that I’ve already replied to you individually, but now I’m also commending you in front of all of our readers – there are over 960,000 unique readers by the way – I offer my sincere thanks for reaching out. Yes, we’ll be happy to extend our 15% off special if you’ll just give us a call Monday and I’ll be happy to give you the deal. Just tell your representative that I approved it! If they don’t believe you, just tell them to read this post 😉
Take care everyone, and have a great day.
