OUR STORY

It was in December 2007 when Alchemy Digital Media (ADM) first opened it’s doors as a web design company. Founded by Earl Gardner and Keshav Basnet, ADM was a small two-man business that catered towards the web design needs of very small, mom & pop, type companies who were looking for a professional online presence. In the years to come ADM expanded both it’s team and expertise to be able to offer a wider range of services to their clients.

In 2014, ADM built their very first plugin for the WordPress CRM, and this led to a 6-year relationship with online marketers, who continued to purchase and use other plugins and WordPress themes that were created by  the company.

At this point we should take a backward journey to 2017, and this is how the company took its first steps into the work of real estate photography. It was a Saturday afternoon when Earl reluctantly accompanied his wife to a local shopping mall. While they were there they visited a clothing store where their college-aged son was working his summer job. As his wife shopped Earl stood back and observed his son carry out his given task of folding the clothes and placing them back onto the shelves. “I remember thinking how mundane that job must be” said Earl, “and how much my son must be looking forward to finishing work”. A couple of weeks later Earl saw how much his son had earned for the past couple of weeks and for working close 60 hours his salary was only $600 after tax.

It was then that Earl decided to bring his son into ADM on a part-time basis, where he felt he would be able to teach him an actual skill that might prove useful in the long-term, and he could certainly earn more per hour than he was in his current job. After giving his son various tasks within the company, that to be honest, he really wasn’t good at, Earl decided to purchase a drone so he son could go out in the field to take photographs of people working at a high-level, e.g. tree surgeons, roofers, etc., and lo-and-behold he excelled in that role (never tell your kids that no good will come from them playing video games). A few weeks later, a real estate agent friend of ours found out we had the drone and asked if we could take some aerial shots of one of her listings, and to cut a long-story short, she loved them and has used us for all her listings since then. After learning other skills such as DSLR photography and Matterport 3D tours, Earl and his son set up an off-shoot company from ADM called ADM Real Estate Photography & Videography and have thrived ever since.

In mid-2020 ADM decided to move away from the online marketer niche and put most of its efforts in creating products for and servicing real estate photography client. Having created a number of websites for real estate photographers and ranking both their websites and Google My Business listings highly in the search engines, the feedback that we have received has shown it to be a good move and we look forward to achieving further success for ourselves and our clients in 2021 and beyond.

Not only was my website super affordable, it was done in nearly no time & the process that took the longest was my decision making, so I’m very thankful for all the guidance & assistance I received throughout the process!! ”

“Great Service”

“Alchemy Digital Media’s team provided me such value in creating my website. I had no idea on the process of putting a website onto a domain and getting hosting. Earl and his team guided me through by explaining in great detail the steps I need to take to have a website created, and also provided suggestions on what products I should get to have the site working the best it can.

They are very patient in clarifying my questions even when I didn’t know how or what to ask. Great service, great product thank you Alchemy Digital Media. ”

“I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THEM”

“I contacted Earl to get help with building and ranking a website for my photography business. I had a template that I was using from a DIY site builder, but even after going through the SEO steps, my site still wasn’t ranking locally. Getting my new site set up with ADM was a simple, streamlined, professional, and pleasant process.

My site has gone from zero rankings to ranking in the top 3 consistently across a twenty mile radius, resulting in more business inquiries. I love the way my site looks, it’s easy to use, easy to find what my clients need, and looks great. Clients have commented how professional and clean it looks, and I’ve even received compliments on it from other photographers.

I didn’t have much knowledge about building a website and SEO ranking, but ADM was incredibly helpful in walking me through step by step to accomplish what I needed and I would definitely recommend them to businesses looking to get help on their web presence!”

They are very professional and worked with me to get my site exactly how I wanted it. They also had a lot of great suggestions for the site which I accepted seeing as it was my first time of creating a website!
