For Inc., It’s Not About Platform or Product, It’s About Purpose

Starting a new job can be tough under any circumstances. But starting a new job just weeks before one of the biggest global crises in modern history is nearly unthinkable. Yet, for Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., that was his reality. Omelianuk spent nearly 12 years as the top editor at This Old House, where he developed his pedigree for crafting multiplatform content strategies. However, his time there, along with his time as a professor, business owner and consultant, couldn’t have prepared him for the past few months. Nevertheless, he has adapted and has leaned into addressing the crisis by launching new editorial initiatives that align with his brand’s core purpose. Given his unique situation, we wanted to check in with Omelianuk to hear his thoughts on a number of things. Here, we discuss his first six months on the job, how he pivoted his editorial strategy, his philosophies on multiplatform publishing, Inc.’s future in print and more. Folio: You took on the EIC role about six months ago, and needless to say, a lot has happened. What was your initial plan for the brand when you joined, and how has that changed in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis? Scott Omelianuk: I’ve had two different careers at Inc.

That’s something I did quite a bit... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
