StoresOnline Informative - Waste of money - Web Hosting

Review by pete.ltd on 2009-08-31
I am a StoresOnline customer. They have been my Website host for almost 2 years. I have had 25 years of computer and internet experience. My business partner has been in the computer business for over 45 years! We thought, even though we knew this was a lot of hype, there was some meat in what they were selling and with our experience could make a go of it. And we knew the only area where we were weak was internet marketing and advertising. PMI quickly came along to fill that gap (so they said).
Our site has been fully operational for just under 2 years. The website management software used by StoresOnline is not very intuitive and takes some practice, even for an experienced HTML/Javascript coder. It is also relatively simplistic with many drawbacks and restrictions. Internet marketing is the most important thing to get your site seen by buyers, and this is where they get you! You can have the most beautiful site in the world, but it is useless if no one will see it.
We trudged on, looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow as promised by the hype. Our site is now fully “optimized” for search engines (independently tested) and we have a great dropshipper.
Bottom line…If you really want a website, don’t go to StoresOnline! Run away from these leaches. StoresOnline and PMI (especially) are the most loathsome and unethical people I have ever dealt with! PMI said they would teach me everything I needed to know about web marketing but their people don’t know the first thing about the subject and only make suggestions for you to “try”.
All the training you need can be found on the internet for free. Good website hosts are a dime a dozen. Stay away from anything having to do with Storesonline. Don’t be stupid like me, save your thousands of dollars for a nice vacation when you get your site up somewhere else.
