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

Football season has arrived!

Hello everyone, it appears that we are in for some real fun this week as the the NFL season starts tomorrow!  I can’t believe that another week is in the books and we’re heading into a great game with the Steelers and the Patriots tomorrow evening.

I know, it still seems early to me, but the NFL preseason games are over! This is an awesome time of the year for us because we have a good group of football fans at Mission Repair, and I usually sneak out with a few employees for some tailgating here in Kansas City, Denver, and we’ve even travelled to California to see a game or two.

Dandra sees these weekends as “the days that we get to eat cheese dip”, but I like to think that I’m more of a true football fan than her. Don’t get me wrong, I love cheese dip…as long as it comes with some professional hits, runs, tackles and touchdowns.  And some chips 😉

To all of those that are in fantasy leagues: Best of luck. I needed to stop playing fantasy football for two reasons:

1. I was distracted by the fantasy play. It took me away from the games that I really wanted to watch and I was focusing on the wrong parts of what was really important to me.
2. I never won 😉

So I’m back in “couch potato” mode on Sundays for a while…unless of course I need to be at the office to help repair the stacks of laptops we have in the repair queue. I better assist tomorrow through Saturday…I need this Sunday off!

Good luck, and happy NFL 2015!

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.

newguy

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

Mission Repair contruction – again. It seems to never stop but there’s a COUPON INSIDE!

Hello friends, it’s been a whirlwind week here at Mission Repair. I find myself saying that a lot, but truthfully we are really busy. In fact, Monday of this week April 6, 2015 – we had a record receiving day for repairs – the most in company history. More than Cyber Monday, Black Friday, or any other normal “big” day for us.

What was so special about April 6th? Not a thing that I can tell. We are working diligently on our marketing and trying a few new things…

Which leads me to our newest expansion. We are creating a new shipping and receiving room at our Corporate Headquarters in Olathe. We just need more space. Truth is that we are moving from one building to the next, but the shipping and receiving area that we have now if just too small for our needs. Hence the expansion. Luckily, we had the room…for the new room!

The sheetrock is up, and right now it’s in the “messy” stage with a lot of dust and debris everywhere. But once it’s done, we’ll have even better capabilities than before. Adding this 500 square feet of dedicated space will also help us stay organized, “on the ready” and will even keep our employees in a climate controlled room during the summer. We’ve tried to work in a space without air conditioning before, and it is just a little bit miserable in the summers.

What’s today’s coupon? If you’ve read this far you must be interested. Today and tomorrow, we are giving a 15% off coupon for all new orders placed online, over the phone or when you come into one of our locations. Just use the coupon “organize” and you’ll get 15% off your entire order. Coupon expires midnight 4/10/15, and cannot be combined with any other coupon or special, and is not available for “got repair” services. Questions? Give us a call at 866-638-8402.

Thanks, and have a great day.

DEAL OF THE MONTH REMINDER!

Hello M:R Nation –

This is a quick reminder that for the month of May, we will be offering an amazing deal on our fantastic 11″ and 13″ Macbook Air LCD screen repair services!

overview_gallery_everyday-1

This repair is actually very tricky. It is not just a matter of uninstalling a whole screen assembly and installing a brand new one. We actually have to build in all the pieces into your already existing back case. It is something that I would definitely not recommend trying on your kitchen table! It takes specialized tools and knowledge to complete the repair successfully.

Thankfully here at Mission Repair, we have both! We have done the R&D to make sure the repairs on theses little guys go off without a hitch every time. If you have a 13″ or 11″, we will professionally repair your Macbook Air and have it back in your hands in no time flat!

To get started just follow this link: Deal Of The Month and choose your size of Macbook Air or give us a call at 866-638-8402!

Cheers, Troy
