Bridestory Co-founder Kevin Mintaraga on the Value of Listening

Kevin Mintaraga has had his eye on technology since he was 13 years old when he discovered the joy of internet games. When he got to university, he pursued his interest in the field by studying computer science. That early, he already saw how technology will evolve marketing.

His instincts proved correct. Kevin jumped into internet marketing ahead of many others. He also established a digital agency, Magnivate, in 2008. The impressive pace by which Kevin’s business grew, however, cannot all be attributed to timing or first-mover advantage.

A personal approach and willingness to listen can open up many opportunities.

Kevin talks to GetCRAFT Co-Founder and Group CEO Patrick Searle about his journey as an entrepreneur–from the time he built his first digital business until he co-founded Bridestory, a global marketplace that connects wedding vendors with would-be couples.

In this 30-minute conversation, Kevin shares the challenges he faced and his advice for young entrepreneurs venturing into the creative industry. Here are some takeaways from The Crafters interview with Kevin Mintaraga:

  • At 14:00 minutes, Kevin tells the story of how he won the hearts of his clients early in his career as an entrepreneur. Building a business is no easy task, he says, especially in a field such as digital, which was still considered uncharted territory when Kevin started.

  • At 29:00 minutes, Kevin talks about the need for an offline strategy, particularly for market education, even when your business is on digital.
  • At 32:00 minutes, Kevin tells us what he thinks is the ideal role of the entrepreneur.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
