Site Review: Cards For Travel
At first look, the website seems to be geared towards several different types of people. It appears to be geared towards the low-income household that would be in search of a way to treat their family to their once in a lifetime vacation. For some families, trips would only be possible with these type awards and this website wants to show them that it is a goal they can reach. The website is also geared towards those who love to travel and are seeking other ways at reaching their destination. The site offers to show consumers how to live the extravagant life of flying in first class or business only by using their credit card miles. Seeing the world can become very costly, so this site is also aimed towards anyone who enjoys expanding their cultural horizons.
The style of the website is very low-key and basic. The small picture on the left side of the mains screen is a nice way of showing visitors where they could travel, as do the pictures spread across the other pages. The basic color scheme for the background and hyperlinks is a pleasant site, considering how overboard some webpages have gone with flash. Some websites attempt to make their guests feel overwhelmed with strange flash images splashed across their computer screens, www.cardsfortravel.com is relying on their facts and basic message to get their point across. Unlike a lot of websites, this one offers quite readable text that won’t make visitors struggle to read, thus, allowing more reading time on their pages. The style the website uses is perfect for their marketing message. As stated earlier, the website seems to be relying on their facts to get their point across, so the design fits perfect with that theme.
The ease of use of a website can often be the difference between a site keeping their visitors for an extended period of time and an early exit. Obviously, every website is hoping to make the reading process easy to use for their visitors, but it doesn’t always work out that way. With this website, the ease of use is one of the best. From the landing page, the decision of which hyperlink to click on next is easy to pick from depending on what you’re looking for. As I looked at the hyperlinks on the right side of the screen, my attention was grabbed by “Save $2 a Day to Go Anywhere.” We have all seen these articles before, but the article posted at the site made me decide on where I wanted to go in three years, and the relative ease in which that travel could be reached.
A website like this can often be looked at in a way where the reader is wondering why they should put their trust in them. In this day and age, anybody can start a website and anybody can put what they want and expect people to believe them. One social proof of value I have for www.cardsfortravel.com is while in one section they say that they have referral links up for certain credit cards they use to save on travel, they also did a solid job of researching the topic and passing that knowledge to the reader. Most readers I know won’t mind using a referral link from a website as long as they get something out of it. With this website, you won’t get any material bonuses, but you will get the history of award travel, helpful advice when your time to fly comes and even a section on possible problems and solutions that may arise.
It’s not to say that I think this site is perfect. By looking at the copyright, I know which company created this page and I would like to know more about them without having to do a Google search. An “About Me” section on the right side of the page would be helpful so readers know whether the information they are getting is from a qualified source. I would also like to see a “Contact Us” section, instead of the “Email Us” hyperlink at the bottom of the FAQ page. Some people don’t like digging around a website for email information and while one might not assume that the third page is “digging around,” to some readers it may be one page too many.
Overall, I feel like the website is solid at selling their point. One doesn’t truly live without traveling and this website saw the need for information to be relayed to guests in an easy way. For every website, there needs to be a point and while some may think the point of this site is to get referral rewards for any guest that signs up for a credit card through a link clicked on inside the text, that isn’t 100 percent true.
