    Hi,
    I was looking at some pages on facebook that count thousands of likes and tried to understand how the admin was using his user database to make some profits. But in most cases there was no ad in the right column and the admin never promoted anything (no affiliate links were thrown).

    So I don't understand the point of creating and maintaining such pages. What's the catch? How do they really make money if they do?

    Lots of people just like to run them, or they post likes.com links or whatever. I keep some just for experiments.

    Believe me you can do too many things. You just need the know the ecosystem of how the internet marketing works. ;)

    If they're companies you're seeing, like Dell for instance, they're probably using Facebook more for reputation management than sales. One negative comment on Facebook about a brand can go viral, so it's important for companies and organizations to monitor and respond to social comments. I once wrote a fuming blog post about Dell and it auto-published on Facebook and a conversation ensued and amazingly some guy in Texas (not India!) contacted me through my blog to resolve the issue. My laptop was repaired within a few days. So the big guys understand the power of Facebook, Twitter, etc.

    you use the page to link to your site and to promote it.

    a lot of ppl create a page for the sake of it, without having the knowledge they can make money out of it.

    You can use it for "targeted marketing". You can also get a large number of "sales leads" in a matter of days for your specific niche. You'll be better informed once you read around BHW. Another thing is that you can use it to make money. Some BHW members are actually using it to make money already. Just like the previous poster said. You have to know the "ecosystem" of the social media you're getting into. And the methods of using this ecosystem to make some moola. :)
