Oh, fall! There are so many reasons to love the season – the cooling temperatures, the changing of the leaves, apple cider, and pumpkin spice everything…the list goes on and on! But at Dittoe PR, we’re most excited about the changes this season has brought on to our growing team and our client roster!

Our New Clients
In the spring of 2017, we began working with tech startup Canvas, a text-based interviewing and recruiting platform. In the first week of Canvas’ launch, we secured over 40 media stories in national outlets like The Wall Street Journal, Inc., Forbes, Fast Company and Quartz. We continued working with Canvas post-launch, securing media coverage for the tech company in national and trade media (HR and recruiting outlets). Within two years of launching, Canvas was acquired by San Mateo, California-based Jobvite Inc.
Initially following the acquisition, Canvas operated as an independent business unit, but worked with Jobvite to grow its Indianapolis operations. Today, the two companies are fully merged, and Jobvite has selected Dittoe PR to serve as its PR partner. We have loved working with the Canvas team and look forward to leading media relations and thought leadership efforts for all of Jobvite!
- Collaborative Imaging
Collaborative Imaging is a radiologist-owned alliance developed by physicians and business experts to combat the growing threat of consolidation in radiology, degradation in patient care, physician burn-out, and operational inefficiencies plaguing radiologists. Collaborative Imaging’s business model allows its partners to realize additional revenue opportunities, all while retaining their full autonomy as independent radiology practices. Dittoe PR will be working closely with the CI team and its partners to secure impactful media coverage in local, trade (radiology and healthcare) and national media outlets. We’ll also be developing strategic content for CI and work to identify and secure thought leadership opportunities for CI’s executive team.
- Indy Scream Park
For the past several years, Indy Scream Park has partnered with Dittoe PR to promote the haunted house attraction park, announce new attractions, generate excitement surrounding the park and ultimately drive ticket sales. This year, our team is leading local media relations and social influencer relations and supporting Indy Scream Park’s social media accounts.
