Sponsorship Overview

  1. Each sponsorship includes enhanced visibility on one Reviews page.
  2. Your final price tag depends on:
    • Number of pages you sponsor
    • Level of sponsorship for each page
  3. Triple Diamond is the top sponsorship level available, followed by Double Diamond, Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Starter.
  4. If multiple companies sponsor a page, the highest-level sponsor will appear on the page first. And, if a page has multiple sponsors within the same level, Clutch Rank will determine the ordering.

For common sponsorship questions, see the FAQs below or visit the sponsorship Help Center.

Plans & Pricing

Select your company size to see plans & pricing.

Publishing a company profile and participating in our ratings and reviews process is free. But, if your company performs well in our research and wants to increase its visibility on Clutch, we offer several levels of sponsorship.

What is Sponsorship?

Sponsorship is an opportunity for your company to increase its visibility on reviews pages.

When you land on a reviews page, the default sort is "Sponsored," which means that sponsors show up first. All sponsors are clearly marked with the sponsor flag:  sponsor

Visitors may use the filter tool and change the sort order. The “Clutch Rank” sort lists companies based on our methodology and research findings. If no firms sponsor a category, the default order is Clutch Rank.

Does Sponsorship Affect Leaders Matrix Rankings?

Sponsorship does not affect your company's rank in the Leaders Matrix.

All sponsors are mapped on the Leaders Matrix based on our methodology, regardless of sponsorship status or level.

All sponsors undergo the same process as other agencies and solutions on our site: a comprehensive evaluation of past work, market presence, and client feedback.

Why Sponsorship?

Our sponsorship model provides an opportunity for you to promote your company to the people seeking your services.

How to Become a Sponsor

1. Consider The Service(s) You Specialize In

To maintain accuracy, companies can only sponsor reviews pages that are relevant to the services they offer.

Each sponsorship includes visibility on a specific page.

2. Understand Our Pricing Breakdown

You pay a monthly rate that’s based on the level of sponsorship. For more information, see the pricing chart above.

The final price tag depends on three factors:

  • Number of pages you sponsor
  • Tier of sponsorship for each page
  • Your company size

3. Choose Your Sponsorship Tier

We offer five different tiers:

  • Diamond
  • Platinum
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Bronze

Diamond is the top sponsorship tier followed by Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

If multiple companies sponsor a services category, the highest-tier sponsor will appear on the reviews page first. And, if a page has multiple sponsors within the same tier, Clutch Rank will determine the ordering.

More on sponsorship tiers in the breakdown below.

4. Contact [email protected] for Custom Guidance

Sponsorship is a subscription service and is billed monthly. Sponsorship is considered active until explicitly canceled. All sponsorship offerings are subject to our Terms of Service.

FAQs

Overall, sponsors receive more visibility in their research category than companies that are not sponsors. Each increasing tier of sponsorship receives priority over lower tiers. And, we offer higher-tier sponsors additional benefits, which are outlined in the program overview.

The value of sponsorship depends on three factors.

1. Sponsorship Tier

High-tier sponsors are placed higher on pages. We order sponsors from highest to lowest tier – diamond, platinum, gold, silver, and bronze, followed by non-sponsors.

2. Page(s) You Sponsor

Because sponsors are ordered based on tier, you may need a higher-tier sponsorship to get the visibility you want on our most popular pages.

For other pages, lower-tier sponsorship or your performance in our research alone may provide the visibility you want.

3. Performance In Our Research

Overall, the best strategy to grow and maintain visibility is to combine sponsorship with a strong company profile, performance in our rankings, and a growing number of client reviews. 

The value of sponsorship increases over time. It depends on two factors: research category growth and service type popularity.

We suggest monitoring sponsorship value over a 4-6 week period.

Yes. You can select a different sponsorship level for each page you want to sponsor.
Yes. However, you only can sponsor the pages where you have earned placement based on our research. If you are placed on multiple pages, you are welcome to sponsor these. However, you cannot sponsor pages that are unrelated to the services you offer.

Because research categories are updated regularly, it is impossible to predict your exact placement on a page. Sponsorship tier is not the only factor that goes into placement.

However, one of our sponsorship success teammates can show you what range you would be placed in based on your research performance and sponsorship level compared to other companies in the same category.

We do not offer free trials or discounts.

The main requirement for sponsorship is strong performance in our research. Other requirements vary by category.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact us at [email protected] or reach out to the analyst responsible for your company profile.

Clutch analysts determine whether an agency is listed on local reviews and Leaders Matrix pages.

They consider multiple factors:

  • Physical office in the location
  • Full service staff operating on-site, including designers, developers, strategists, and project managers

Requirements may vary by location and service category; Clutch Analysts will make the final decision on whether a company qualifies for a local listing.
