Using similar pages to help your FB page?

Just wondered what people's views were on promoting their FB page through other (perhaps bigger) FB pages.

E.g. you're a fairly new driving instructor, with a new FB page, and you leave your link to your page by 'liking' all over the place in other pages. Not other driving instructors but pages that are local to you, involved with the subject (driving) etc...

It might not be as strong an effect as advertising, but it is free of course. I know you'd have to be careful in terms of getting banned as a spammer, but if subtle enough then a good spread of 'likes' that link to you wouldn't be bad would it?

I'm not sure if it would be worth the time if I am honest.

As far as I know, a like from a page on another page doesn't do much at all apart from showing up on the liking page's timeline, nothing appears on the page that you have liked. I'm not sure they even get a notification.

A better strategy, would be to comment on other pages posts as your page but obviously not in a spammy way.

Better again would be if those pages mentioned your page using @ in their posts.
