Our work with websites ranges from small brochure websites to 4,000-page multi-site networks. We’ve worked with e-commerce, event calendars, online class systems, intranet websites, and single-page scrolling websites, and can create custom plugins and designs or use existing ones to save time and money.

In my career as a business analyst I have worked with a multitude of web programmers and design teams. Hands down, Ananda Web Services is the best of them all. —Pat, Ananda Portland / Ananda Laurelwood

Our website creation process usually goes through these phases:

Strategy and planning
Designing the experience of the visitor
Visual design
Development (programming)
Creating content (photos, videos, and copywriting)
Marketing and promotion

We work almost exclusively with WordPress, a website platform that allows site administrators to edit and add new content with little technical skill — while keeping the original integrity of the design intact. WordPress is used by 23 percent of all websites, including hundreds of extremely popular brands such as The New York Times, Google Ventures, Bill Cosby, and Time.com.

Training is frequently included with a website project, so that you can have direct control of the website yourself, and we are often hired for ongoing maintenance after a website is finished, for example if no on-site developers are available.

Cost varies dramatically depending on the scope of a project, but is very flexible if you are willing to be flexible. Website projects we’ve taken on have ranged from $500 for a new feature, to $2,000 – $5,000 for a basic website, to $30,000 for a complex unique website with many special needs.

Examples

We're committed to creating beautiful, easy-to-use, websites.

Here are some websites we have done including custom websites, sites created from a pre-made theme, and website redesigns.

Ananda Web Services video production team has done a superb job capturing the vision behind our creative projects and turning that vision into a compelling story. The videos we have created together have brought tears, laughter and heart-opening joy to those who have watched them. Storytelling through this medium cannot be more important in today’s busy world. What AWS is able to do for us at Ananda Sangha Worldwide is invaluable. —Gita, Director of Development for Ananda Sangha Worldwide

We can create videos for anything from short video blogs to promotional films to a series of instructional videos. We have access to a large database of Ananda-related footage as well as 4k stock footage (extremely high quality footage which has four times the resolution of HD), and use a variety of programs such as Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premier to make adjustments until it all flows together beautifully and seamlessly.

If you have only a vague idea of what you want, or know you want a video but aren’t sure what it should be about, we’re happy to work with you to clarify your goals and figure out exactly how it should look. We can also tweak the video at the end to make sure it’s exactly what you need. We especially enjoy tuning into the essence and vibration of what you are looking for and making sure that the message runs clearly but subtly throughout the video.

The time it takes to create video can vary greatly depending on the size of the project, the amount of editing needed, and the number of other projects happening at the same time. It can take anywhere from a week to several months.

Examples

We're committed to providing engaging and inspiring videos to help magnetize your business.

Here are some of the videos we've created, from the inspirational to the instructive to the promotional.
