What your fellow agents have to say about the VIAA Trusted Choice Campaign: No other campaign I have been involved in delivers more exposure to my agency than VIAA’s Trusted Choice advertising program. - Jon Jamieson, Jamieson Insurance

VIAA TRUSTED CHOICE BRANDING CAMPAIGN HIGHLIGHTS Concentrated broadcast media purchase with commercials placed during the first two weeks of every month (June - August) reinforced by Cable TV in the latter weeks of each month New localized version of Agent-centric Trusted Choice TV Commercial Gold sponsors receive customized footage, including an on-camera appearance and agency customers featured - all taped on location Silver and Bronze sponsors receive an on-camera appearance taped at VIAA at NO COST. (Customized footage taped at an agent’s location is available at $350 per agent)

Last year’s campaign delivered 7 million ad impressions. Don’t miss out on the opportunity.

They took care of everything - from coordinating the production of spots at our different locations to making sure we had the best TV placements, including the Superbowl. What can be better than that? -Daniel Rodliff, NFP
