Building Content Managed Travel Websites With Umbraco

When launching a travel website, you want it to be powerful, beautiful and different from the other websites you are competing with. Much of the responsibility for this comes down to the designers who you choose to create your site.

One of the questions that you will definitely want to ask your designers is which platform they will use to create your site.

At CSI Media we recommend using Umbraco as a platform because it can be used to launch modern, responsive sites that you can update yourself with ease.


From base template to unique website

When you hire a designer who uses Umbraco to build websites, they may well start off with a template that they have devised themselves, especially if they regularly design travel sites. This is exactly what the Umbraco developers at CSI Media will do for you.

We can access the code at any level to create a stunning template that implements custom design and your unique branding. We can work with you to bring your vision to life, and then you will have a completely unique site that is ready to start generating sales.


Take full control of your site

Once the site has been created, you can start to make more changes. For example, you could:

  • create more pages;
  • add features in the form of add-ons;
  • launch a blog;
  • create a newsletter sign-up form;
  • integrate your social media accounts.

The great thing about Umbraco is that it makes it easy to do all of this and more. So you really can enjoy complete control without the need for a designer.


Publish content with ease

Content is essential for any website, but especially for travel sites. People will visit your site looking for information, inspiration, tips and more, so it is important to use a platform that allows you to create and post content with ease.

Using Umbraco, you can:

  • publish content when you want to;
  • launch a blog;
  • create new product pages;
  • launch special offers;
  • edit content;
  • publish directly from Microsoft Word;
  • save versions of content;
  • insert images easily.


Low cost

Another great benefit is that Umbraco is open source and therefore completely free to use. You may have to pay for some add-ons, but many are free. Essentially, you get to enjoy all the benefits of an enterprise-level solution without all the costs.


Great for SEO

Umbraco is optimised for the search engines from the start, which is great news for your travel site. Travel is a competitive industry online, so you want to do everything you can to ensure you get noticed.

With Umbraco, you can work on your SEO as soon as your site goes live knowing that it is already optimised.


Get your travel website on one of the best platforms

A travel website should do more than just look good. When you launch your new site, you want it to be easy to use for your customers, and you also want to be able to take full control of it.

 Umbraco is a fantastic solution for both users and developers, so find out if your designer uses it to build websites, and enjoy all of the benefits it brings.
