We have a booking platform where users choose different types of activities to do in their area, But when users go to search page only 52.9% of them continue to activity page which made me think that some users don't know that they have to click on card view to go to activity.

The obvious easy solution here is to just add a Book button under each activity but that would look so duplicated and will make website look bad.

What else can I do to make it more obvious that the card view is clickable and they must click it?

For reference this is how only 52.9% of traffic reach activity page : enter image description here

Well, being objective I see several drawbacks on your results page.

1 . Hire a photographer

Actually the photos that you show in the capture, I don't know if they are the real ones of the activities that the web sells, but the truth is that they don't invite to delve too deeply. Without being rude, they look like discarded photos from an image bank. Hire a photographer or at least someone who Photoshop them to give them a little bit of visual quality.

If the photos you have are not of sufficient quality or you think they are not very catchable for the user, there are also other more suggestive alternatives:

2 . Define better the cards

The grid with the cards looks more like an information page, such as the news in a newspaper, the common user may not immediately interpret they are clickable. All the information is at the same level, it lacks remarkable details below the photo. Visit sites with UI card designs for inspiration.

There are two things that interface designers tend to hate: drop shadows and buttons, but in some cases they are very useful elements, and this is an example, the shadow helps define a frame and the button leaves no doubt that it's clickable.

3 . If possible, don't let the website be just a photo and text grid. There are elements such as color, contrast, typography, design in general that not only enrich the page but also invite it to be visited and used.

Make a real difference between a – booking platform where users choose different types of activities to do in their area – and a boring/annoying/regular real-estate site to desperately look for a small flat to live in downtown ;-). I think your site has a more playful purpose and should broadcast it and invite to feel it.

    Thanks for your amazing informative answer, All photos are actually taken by our photographer except the first one and we are trying to take photographs and we will try to photoshop them to improve them as you pointed out. We will try to focus on point number 1 and 3 and see results. Oct 23, 2021 at 19:21
