I agree in using a signature within your posts for free marketing.
You can also pay for advertising within just Facebook which I have done in the past. It works a bit better than Google or Yahoo ads for me because it's even more targeted and is less expensive!
This is an an important question that I also ponder. My suggestion to you is first begin by getting to know someone and what problems they are looking to solve so you can listen and then respond with integrity and honesty. You won't be in someone's face if you are not cramming info down someone, without knowing what they are looking for. There are so many spammers on the internet, that if you have a fresh new approach that shows you actually care, I believe you will be successful.
I am doing as you have suggested in building associations without blasting them with my business stuff. My question was more about the transition from interested participant to sharing those things that help my health and nutrition business and provide a service that meets needs in a non-medical/non-drug process.
I hope this helps to clarify my request,
A great book to read on the topic is "the new rules of marketing and pr" by Meerman. Firstly, social networking is a two way street, you can't just say "i want to use it to sell my stuff', you need to develop relationships with people, and seek out people who are like minded to you, then they are likely to be interested in your product. Are there any facebook groups to do with natural health? Get involved in conversations with the people in the group, be interested in what they are talking about, become friends with other members, and occasionally you can mention your work without it being weird and pushy.
