Diamond level sponsorships (including Double and Triple Diamond) are different from other sponsorship levels - they are coordinated on a monthly calendar basis.
Can I sign up for Diamond level sponsorship at any time?
In situations where the placement of your Diamond sponsorship will impact the position of another company's Diamond sponsorship, your sponsorship will be placed at the start of a new calendar month. Diamond sponsorships may be placed at any point in the calendar month if they do not affect another company's Diamond sponsorship. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see whether your intended placement is available immediately.
Clutch needs to receive a commitment for any Diamond level sponsorship that impacts another company's Diamond level sponsorship by 5pm Eastern on the stated Diamond coordination deadline (see table). Cancellation of a Diamond level sponsorship needs to be communicated to Clutch before the same deadline; otherwise, sponsorship will renew like any other sponsorship level.
The coordination deadline is intentionally several days before the 1st of the new month. If, before the coordination deadline, a company commits to a Diamond sponsorship that impacts another company's projected placement, then the impacted company will be granted the opportunity to change their Diamond commitment in reaction to the adjustment. If the notification from Clutch comes after the coordination deadline, the company will still be given a reasonable amount of time to request changes before the 1st.
The impacted company will have the option to choose another sponsorship level for the same page (lower or higher) or discontinue the sponsorship. If the change that that company chooses negatively impacts the placement of another Diamond placement, the cycle continues so that every Diamond sponsor has the opportunity to finalize their placement choices for themselves. Since there are only pre-defined sponsorship levels from which to choose, the cycle of changes come to a natural conclusion quickly.
