If someone is asking a question and your service is the answer, it is always appropriate to reply publicly.
For example, “I need someone who can help me build out my Facebook page…”
Your reply, “Our company specializes in this…”
Alternatively, if someone asks a question that might not be looking for a service, but you make a connection, then I would private message that person and say something like this; “I saw that you were looking for tips on how to improve your Facebook engagement. I happen to help small businesses as a consultant, in case you’re looking for outside help…”
Both of these situations share one thing in common: contextual relevance.
