Using SharePoint as a CMS for ASP pages

I have been handed about 30 ASP pages for a marketing site.  Until this point, the changes were made by marketing and handed to developers that change the ASP pages.  This as you can imagine has some problems.

These pages follow a pretty standard template, and most of the changes are adding new products and updating marketing material.

There is a Share Point site for internal items, but could this also be used for developing content for the external site?  For whatever reason, they don’t want to put all the site into Share Point.  I understand that Share Point is written in ASP, but I don’t know if it can be used in this way.  Forgive my lack of Share Point knowledge, but I have only been a Share Point consumer on a limited basis, not a developer.

If it is possible, what type of things should I research to understand how this would be implemented?

sharepoint is witten in ASP.NET, which is very different from classic asp. you can create sharepoint sites that face the public, its just a matter of configuring it properly. If you wanted to have these marketing pages in sharepoint, you would need to totally re-do them, as there's no way to easily put the asp pages in sharepoint and have them work properly, they would need to be converted over.
