"We can make you an eCommerce site that is 100% Search Engine Optimized (SEO) and will generate loads of income without any work on your part!" Gimme a break! These firms charge anywhere from $30/mo to $6000/mo, and sometimes more. One of the reasons why I am in this business is to rescue people from snakes like these (yes, I said snakes).
There are a whole host of free web platforms out there that are easy to use, and they give you everything that you need in regards to SEO and eCommerce capabilities. Sometimes you may want to pay a little to get a premium theme that you can use and modify to your suit your personal or business needs, and associated plugins to help keep your new site SEO-kosher.
My advice: Stay away from anyone that offers to build you or your business a magical SEO site. With just a few plugins, and a little sweat equity, you can create the same site (or better) for NEARLY FREE. Host your own site (it's easy and typically costs around $150 for 2 years with most hosting providers) and start creating your online presence!
