Media Relations

Media Relations

We don’t wait for the news to happen. We make the news happen. Sure, it’s easier to have lightning strike when there’s a company announcement to make. But we’re all about creating rolling thunder, securing constant media coverage for clients in top tier publications by proactively brainstorming new story ideas.

Content Marketing

Content Marketing

To attract new business and raise awareness, great content needs to be amplified. From whitepapers and research to case studies and blog posts, we know how to generate media coverage that maximizes the reach of our clients’ content.

Thought Leadership

Thought Leadership

It sounds contradictory, but one of the best ways to attract new business is to stop talking about your business. Start sharing your expertise instead. We help clients establish themselves as authorities in their space through byline articles sharing best practices and opinions, speaking engagements and expert interviews.

Events

Events

From grand openings to launch parties, we know how to make a splash. But it’s not just the initial impact we pride ourselves on creating. It’s the ripple effect that comes with having the right mix of influential journalists and attendees to drive results for your bottom line.

Social Media

Social Media

These days, it’s not just enough to have a presence on social media. It’s about making that presence on social media count. From creating award-winning social media contests to thoughtful social media strategy plans, there’s one thing our social media campaigns have in common: they generate results.

Campaign Measurement

Campaign Measurement

We match our PR measurement to business goals and objectives. Every campaign we plan, every PR tactic we employ and every story we pitch is specifically designed to drive the same Key Performance Indicators our clients use to measure progress toward business objectives.

We have the brainpower of a big agency with the attitude of a small one.

Dittoe PR was founded on the premise that clients deserve better. But bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better.

Our team is talented enough to produce the same results as a big agency, yet small enough to provide the hands-on, senior-level expertise you need. We become a part of your team, immersing ourselves in your business to understand your goals and align our PR efforts to reach them.

We work with big brands, startups and everything in between. No two clients are alike, but it’s also not a coincidence that many of our clients know each other. They’re our best advocates.

Co-founder and CEO / Swiftwick

"...Trying to innovate and grow this business is a challenge but we're pretty good at being who we are and we let that story speak for itself. I was well practiced in the art of deflecting the hundreds of marketing agencies that tried to earn our business as our company grew. I knew we needed professional help to tell the story about our brand, but it never felt like the fit was right. When an industry changing event brought major media attention to our product, we were fortunate to be introduced Dittoe PR. Without the normal ramp-up period, in a crash marketing, emergency mode, they dug in, produced results and won our business. In the same way we imagine we are good at what we do, they proved they could perform under pressure, with no advance time and no glitzy agency pretense. We realized how badly we needed a partner like Dittoe, only after they earned our trust, loyalty and confidence. An investment with a PR firm was not in our budget, but we found the resources and carved out a spot for Dittoe. They have been a consistent partner, professionally absorbed feedback, made timely adjustments and literally added new facets of their own creative origin to the diamond of our brand. In many ways, Swiftwick is Dittoe, and we are better for it."
