Limewire Taps Ditto PR to Amplify AI Acquisition

Music technology pioneer Limewire has tapped Ditto PR to lead communications efforts for its acquisition of BlueWillow, a top AI image generating platform. 

Limewire is zeroing in on its focus on AI and the creator community, having recently launched the Limewire AI Studio. Its acquisition of BlueWillow furthers this mission significantly, thanks to both BlueWillow’s proprietary AI tools and its massive community of more than 2.3 million active members generating more than 500 million images in 2023. 

Prior to the acquisition announcement, Ditto met with the Limewire team to align on key objectives and targets for the news. Ditto moved quickly to develop a media strategy that would focus on how Limewire users will benefit from BlueWillow’s AI tools, and how BlueWillow’s fast-growing community will gain access to LimeWire’s AI Studio and creator platform.

Ditto’s senior-led team leveraged our extensive experience across AI, tech, business and finance verticals to secure coverage for Limewire in several outlets including TechCrunch, Yahoo! Finance, Axios, and Decrypt. This coverage put Limewire and BlueWillow’s shared vision to evolve the artist and creator economy on full display. 

Ditto is proud to partner with companies of all shapes and sizes exploring the artificial intelligence space, from edtech to finance to mindfulness and music. Take a look at some of our other work with AI companies here and here

Building Trust in AI: Lessons Start-ups Can Learn from Crypto's Missteps


In the rapidly evolving AI landscape, trust is not a luxury; it's a necessity. Founders and in-house PR professionals at AI start-ups face a unique challenge: to establish credibility in a market often marred by skepticism. With over 7 years of specialized experience in AI public relations, Ditto PR is uniquely positioned to guide you through this complex terrain. Our expertise extends beyond mere media relations to include thought leadership, stakeholder engagement, and crisis management. Trust us to be your comprehensive PR partner.

The Current Trust Deficit in AI

The AI industry is often viewed through a lens of suspicion, fueled by concerns about data privacy, ethical considerations, and potential job loss. This trust deficit can be a significant barrier to customer acquisition and investor relations. According to a PwC survey, only 25% of consumers fully trust AI-powered systems. This is not just a PR challenge; it's a business challenge that can impact your bottom line. A multi-layered PR strategy that includes thought leadership, stakeholder engagement, and transparent communication is essential for overcoming this hurdle.

Lessons from Crypto

The crypto industry serves as a cautionary tale for AI. Early crypto start-ups often failed to articulate their value propositions clearly, allowing bad actors and negative press to define the industry. According to a Deloitte survey, nearly 80% of early crypto start-ups failed due to a lack of user trust. The lesson for AI start-ups is clear: failure to communicate effectively can lead to a tarnished reputation. AI companies must make their technology relatable and understandable to avoid the pitfalls that plagued crypto.

Overcoming the Trust Challenge

Know Your Audience

Understanding your target audience's needs and concerns is the first step in crafting a compelling narrative. Audience segmentation, followed by tailored messaging for each segment, can be highly effective. For investors, the focus could be on ROI and scalability, while for consumers, the narrative could revolve around ease-of-use and data security. According to a Harvard Business Review study, tailored messaging can increase customer engagement by up to 20%.

Educate and Address Concerns

Transparency is key. Address issues like data privacy head-on and provide educational content that demystifies AI. Educational webinars, whitepapers, and op-eds in start-up publications can go a long way in establishing your brand as a thought leader. A recent Forbes article highlighted that companies providing educational content are 93% more likely to convert leads.

Leverage Media

Effective media coverage is about more than just visibility; it's about message amplification. We specialize in securing placements in high-impact outlets that not only boost visibility but also enhance credibility. Our media strategies are designed to position your start-up as an industry leader. According to a PRWeek survey, 89% of business leaders believe that media coverage is important for enhancing their corporate reputation.

The Role of Ditto PR

We've been a trusted partner in the AI space for over 7 years, advising a wide range of AI start-ups on how to communicate effectively to diverse external audiences. Our clients have benefited from our smart communications counsel, which extends beyond media relations to include investor relations and crisis management.
