2015 Mission Repair Blog in review.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.

We definitely hit a few “highs” this year on our blog, and by far reaching over 1 million unique new readers was one of the best.  I’ve been aiming for that goal for some time now, are we are on our way to 2 million!

One of our most read blogs is still from 2011 titled “What is an iPhone Digitizer“.  We’ve definitely gotten some mileage out of that one!

Thanks again for everyone’s readership, we really appreciate it.  Take your time traveling as the 2015 year closes and you can count on the fact that we will be here in 2016.

Sincerely, Ryan


I’ve learned a little more about blogging lately…

Hello blog readers,

One of the main points that I learned today was this:

Every Monday at 10:00am is our busiest “read” time. That means that 17% of my almost 1 million viewers reads the Mission Repair Blog at the very beginning of the week. I’m not sure how that stacks up to other blogs that are out there, but it’s certainly on the “to do” list for most people early.

Why do insights like this seem important and relevant to me? Of course I want to provide news, info and specials at the beginning of each week. I’ve been in the habit lately of writing blogs and scheduling them so they spread out a bit (another tidbit that can help any new blogger out) so that content isn’t just flooded when the author feels creative.

Since this blog is geared around my business, Mission Repair, it’s appropriate to give our specials and deals at the beginning of the week (which I will do) rather than at the end of the week (which we’ve been doing). For sure after so many years of writing and hearing feedback from our customers we certainly have a lot of data. It’s time to put that data to good use.

Speaking of writing, my publisher has asked me to write another book to add to the “How To” section at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. My last publication “How to Start a Home Based Computer Repair Business” was a hit (well, it did’t make the New York Best Sellers list), but there’s a point to where a book is called “successful” and we reached that goal.

The third tidbit today: I didn’t wake up one day and say “I’m going to write”. It’s come over years of work and thought, which has grown into a “professional” status. Are all of my blogs fun, interesting and relevant? Naw, but they can’t all be winners. It’s about determination and dedication and hitting the mark every once in a while 😉 I’ll be here.

Thanks again for reading, happy Tuesday morning…


But what happens if I break my phone the second time?

Good morning friends,

We get repeat customers every day. This is just a fact of the business, and if you drop your phone and crack the screen once, it’s a drag. But let’s say you have it repaired and then drop it again; you might just be plain mad!!

That’s why I came up with a program that’s exclusive to Mission Repair. Other companies have tried to copy our program, but we pioneered this benefit for OUR customers. That’s why we get more repeat and loyalty from our customers than the next “pop up” repair business down the street. Let’s discuss it.

The number one service we perform is fixing cracked screens for many different products. Even worse, we’ve seen many repeat customers for the same repair. Mission Repair wants to stand out among the competition by offering benefits with our repairs that other businesses don’t.

Allow us to elaborate:

Think of it as “The Real Lifetime Warranty”. Check the competition. When they offer lifetime warranties, this doesn’t include breakage again on the part you had repaired. What good is a lifetime warranty on a piece of glass that only fails when it breaks? Our “Got Repair” program covers re-repairing damaged glass and screens.

Think of it as a “Thank You” for coming back to Mission Repair. If you have your device repaired with us, you already know that it can be broken. And if you should somehow accidentally or intentionally damage it again, we want you to come back to Mission Repair. We would make more money by charging you full price but you may decide not to repair your device more than once. Our “Got Repair” program benefits encourage repeat business with a special thank you to every Mission Repair customer.

Think of it as the “New Standard” in which services should be performed. Mission Repair pioneers many programs and we set the standard for the market.

Think of it as the opposite of “Insurance”. Insurance is just that. You buy insurance “in case” something happens to your unit. If nothing happens, you still pay. Additionally, most insurance plans require a deductible and stringent rules to filing a claim. Our “Got Repair” benefits cost you nothing up front. Rather, we charge a small service fee for any repeat repair. You can have the unit re-repaired once or 1000 times, this service fee will remain the same.

Compare it to AppleCare + from Apple. Read our blog about the savings here!

Let’s see how it works in real life:

Order a service that includes the “Got Repair” Benefits. Our iPhone 3GS Glass Repair Service is an excellent EXAMPLE and the product picture looks like this on our website:


We’ll then perform our Award Winning Service like usual and get the repaired unit back in your hands. We are in the business of Nationwide 24 Hour Service and while-you wait repairs for walk-in customers.


Then at ANY TIME in the future, if you break this same iPhone 3GS Glass again we’ll repair it for a $20 “Got Repair” Service Fee. Remember, you can have the same unit re-repaired as many times as you’d like, there is NO LIMIT. NOTE – THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE IPHONE 3GS GOT REPAIR SERVICE FEE. DIFFERENT FEES APPLY TO DIFFERENT REPAIRS.
