Promoting an pre-made site??
From Chris Mork at SAMPLE SITE! on 14 July '00

Please note, I am seeking advice BEFORE I set up a page.. hence no url.

I am thinking about purchasing an "e-commerce" site that allows 100
products to be sold.. it has secure merchant accounts and shopping
cart software as part of the package. Here's my problem..

It is made of pre-made templates (no frames :-)) BUT, I only have
limited control over titles/meta-tags/content on 3 pages (the "home"
page, the "directory" page, and the "promotions" page. ALL the other
pages are boiler-plate, with product pictures, prices, etc., set by
the company. I think this may limit search engines, spiders, etc. from
thoroughly listing/promoting my site. Does anyone think this "package"
e-commerce site is worth using? What's the use of selling online if
I can't promote it properly!

Here is a url of a "sample" site the company provides..

This is one of the pages I have a limited control over (title/meta).
Is this worth investing $1000 US in or should I get my own domain
and host (MUCH more expensive!)
