Something that is within the same realm of this that people do is operate their personal Facebook profile like a "social media" profile.Not sure if you'd categorise this as unethical, I suppose it depends on your definiton of ethical, but the idea is fairly simple, you go to facebook search for your keywword/keywords sort the results to groups, then open the groups and go to their members section, members are listed by newest members first then click on each individual member and message them about your site/product/social media pages or groups, ofcourse there is the risk of getting slaped acros the wrists for "spamming" however if you construct your message carefully it shouldn't be a problem after all they have already shown an interesst in the topic.
They go to groups as you have described, but they add group members as friends. Then, they publish posts to their profile- not a page. This is done because personal profiles tend to have a better reach % than pages, etc. Eventually, once a friend list has been built, you can turn off people's ability to add you as a friend, and only give them the ability to "follow" your profile.
People used to do this back in the day all the time with fake girl profiles to promote YouTube videos, though I'm not sure if you need to verify your identity, etc. nowadays to create a Facebook account.
