What is Social Pod

Social Pod matches brands with skilled, freelance and full-time community managers.  We save you the hassle of searching and offer a quick and friendly service.

We have a network across all major cities in South Africa and the largest database of freelance community managers in Africa. Social Pod has helped brands in Africa, the UK and Sweden find full-time and remote community managers.

Whether you’re a brand looking for extra hands , an agency drowning in deadlines, or a Social Media Manager needing help while you go on an actual holiday – we’ll match you with the right community manager.

How it works


Contact us, tell us your exact needs and we’ll build you a brief.


We send the brief out to the Social Pod database. We then wait for the applications to roll in.


We get a lot of applicants for each brief. We evaluate each one against your specific needs, we make contact,  check industry references and then send you a recommendation pack to review.


You make your choice, we connect you, you make the offer, they say yes and it’s really as simple as that.

Working with SocialPod has been an absolute pleasure. I've been trying for months to find a brilliant community manager to help me out.
