Three television spots, including one 30-second spot and two IS-second spots, are available for you to use locally. (Running back-to-back IS-second spots has proven more effective than a single
30-second spot.) Each spot leaves S seconds at the end for you to add your local office address, phone number or Web site address. Storyboards for all TV spots will be provided in January. You must complete and forward a TVILocal Talent Reuse Form (page 3.25) before any commercial(s) is (are) released to you. This must be done for every television media buy. After the form has been
received by The Sawtooth Group, Multimedia Services will issue your office the appropriate tape(s). See your price list for available television spots and their costs.
