It’s a little treacherous out there.

Hi there,

I’m sitting here in my front office at Mission Repair in Lenexa, Kansas and the snow just started to fall.  Soon after, I heard lots of sirens and can see the commotion rumbling just down the street.  The weather is starting to hit us, and the freezing rain is really what is causing the issue.  Cars are starting to slide all over the place!

Here’s a pic out into the parking lot as we speak:

I know that it doesn’t look like much, but that little bit of snow on top of the slick roads makes a dangerous situation.   It looks like I should probably put it into 4 wheel drive for a little while unit the road crews get their act together.

We’ve have several people come in during the “mess”.  I want to remind everyone that we are open until 7 pm, and if is suits your lifestyle to wait until the roads as a little better, then I recommend that you hang tight in your warm houses and offices while KDOT gets the plows up and down the highway.  I bet that by 5 pm today it’ll be just fine to move around the area.

Thanks again and drive safe everyone!

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 cement magnet.

I was in the front lobby today talking with one of our customers and she said “I think my iPhone is a cement magnet“. This was her 3rd trip into Mission Repair on the same phone to have the screen repaired.

Screen Shot 2015-07-14 at 1.51.53 PM

Please remember that these phones have GLASS screens, and I know that this customer is fully aware of the problems of dropping her iPhone…but other customers don’t really think about it until it’s too late.

We all make mistakes; but this customer keeps coming back to Mission Repair because of our exclusive “Got Repair” benefits that come with each and every repair. This means that if you have your iPhone fixed with us, and if you ever drop and break it again, you’ll never pay full price again. We are the only repair business in the industry to offer this, not even Apple themselves will touch this benefit program.

Some customers ask “what’s the catch?” There is none. It’s just something that we do at Mission Repair that continually sets us apart from the rest of the market. Want to learn more about our “Got Repair” program for screens? Click here!

And try not to drop your phone if you can help it 😉

Take care, Ryan

Heat Wave…and a Coupon Inside!

Hello there summer friends,

It’s been an interesting start to the year as the weather in Kansas City has been strangely rainy. It seems like every weekend that I have a chance to take the boat out, it’s been raining.

Screen Shot 2015-07-14 at 1.34.55 PM

That’s all changed and this week there’s an official “heat wave” coming through the Midwest and a “heat advisory” that extends until 9:00pm tonight here in Kansas City. When I walk outside from an air-conditioned building it takes about 30 seconds for my sweat glands to kick it into overdrive.

Yesterday it was 96 degrees F, but it felt like 105 degrees according to the heat index. Since it’s so humid in this area, the actual temperature never seems to be relevant. The “feels like” temperature is what I always hone into when watching the news! Today is nearly the same.

So if you brave it out to head into one of our locations we’ll reward you for doing so! Heck, today is a perfect day to visit our Colorado Mission Repair, it’s only 92.5 degrees F – but get this – because it’s so dry in Lakewood, Colorado the “feels like” temperature is actually only 91 degrees. Yeah, that’s awesome “mountain air” for ya!

Again, if you head into one of our shops today, we’re offering a $10 off discount on any repair that’s over $50 now through the end of the week, Friday 7/17/15 at midnight. Just enter coupon code “HOT” when checking out online, or print and bring a copy of this blog to your sales representative for your discount. Please, no discounts without a print out, and this coupon cannot be combined with any other coupon or discount, including “Got Repair” benefit prices.

You don’t have to rush in. It’s too hot for that. Just slowly make your way into a Mission Repair location or place your order online and we’ll be happy to extend that $10 off coupon on your next iPhone, iPod, Mac or other Smartphone repair until this Friday.

Thanks and have a great day, Ryan

MIssion Repair is OPEN TODAY!

Hello everyone-

There’s a movement across the nation and it seems that everyone is closed today except for us at our Mission Repair locations

My technicians are thinking “but how come we have to come into work?!” The answer is simple. We are here for you, and they will all get the day off tomorrow 😉

open

So stop on by; we’ve been extremely busy this morning and I’m sure it’s because everyone else is relaxing and getting their “repair errands” done today. That works out perfect for us because all of my locations as fully staffed and ready to help you in any way we can.

Thanks, and if you’re working today we feel ya; tomorrow will be the fun day, right?

Have a great 3rd of July, Ryan
