Smaller companies or freelance social media experts usually charge in the hundreds per month, depending on how often you need to post and if there is extra work such as running competition, ads, answering queries, running reports, etc. 

You should plan carefully when outsourcing your social media posts because you can lose the authentic feel of a small business, especially if there are disgruntled customers, controversies, etc. As long as you have a workflow charted out, and plan for the worst, it should be fairly easy to manage.
