Model Answer:

I like to hit the internet for some occasional online shopping in order to avoid annoying city traffic and thus save some times for myself. Time is money, they say. So, the other day, when I started to search for some websites on the internet in order to buy some products online, I found an e-commerce site which, I thought, was a stand-out website in its league. I sure am glad that I found, selling an array of products from fresh groceries to fashion accessories for men and many other household stuff in between. After entering the website and navigating through it for a while, I felt like was designed and built for common users like me with all the useful and necessary features of a website to succeed online.

The most useful aspect of this website, in my opinion, is that the users will get to see all the necessary information, such as contact number and location among other things, above the fold of its main/home page without scrolling down. Having a fairly simple navigation menu at the left pane, the home page of this site has done a great job of organizing its product categories in layers one below another without mixing them up so that the prospective customers can find them without spending too much time. Its pixel-perfect sliding images on the header section of the home page as well as on the other pages of this website highlights the fact that the designers have gone to a great length to ensure its visual appeal while remaining very mindful of the basics. Too lazy to scroll down the page to find the product you are looking for? Just type the product or brand of your liking in the search box, added at the very top of every page, to ensure the optimum usability of the site so that you can find your product(s) easily.

This is a very useful site for another reason because it offers its prospective customers a “cash on delivery” option which means you could actually check your merchandise before paying for it. Loading at a great speed, sells most of its product items at reasonable prices so its customers don’t have to leave the site without buying anything because of high price tags. What else can you expect from a website if it offers you so many great advantages?
