TRAVIS PFLANZ

WordPress Web Developer & SEO Professional in Kansas City

ABOUT ME

Puppy Wrangler, Indie Film Enthusiast and WordPress & SEO Guy

I build and design websites throughout Kansas City, with search engine optimization in the forefront, of course. I provide affordable - not cheap (yes, there is a BIG difference) - websites for small and medium sized businesses. I am also a co-organizer of WordPress KC and a member of Kansas City Search Engine Marketing Association.

When not building websites, I enjoy classic American literature, volunteering at Wayside Waifs animal shelter and helping independent filmmakers get their films made.

I am an eternal Kansas City Royals and Chiefs optimist... Except when I'm being pessimistic.

Web Works of Kansas City

Kansas City web design & search engine optimization (SEO)

I formed Web Works of Kansas City in 2007. My first client as a business was a restaurant in Olathe. The restaurant is no longer in business, but it was at no fault of the amazing website!

Discovered WordPress

It's no longer that cute little blogging platform it started out as

I began working with WordPress shortly after it's release... Back then, it was much different - mostly a simple blogging platform. Now, it is much more powerful, capable of everything from eCommerce to social community websites. Today, more than 20% of all websites on the internet are powered by WordPress.

First Website

I built my first website for fun. Is that weird?

I first became interested in website design in 2000. Back then, fantasy football websites were not as advanced as they are today. Our league needed a website to keep the league history and a place for owners to make their selections in our fantasy pick 'em pool, so I built one!

TESTIMONIALS

SOME OF THE GOOD THINGS PEOPLE SAY ABOUT MY WORK

MOVIES I'M WATCHING

you should see it you should skip it

Movie reviews are boring. I just let you know if you should see a movie or not, with a few notes.

Unbroken, 2014

Unbroken (2014)

December 9, 2014

Christmastime is my favorite time of year – Not because Santa Claus or commercialism – It is my favorite of year because this is when all the Academy Award nominees start streaming into theaters.

Tonight I saw Unbroken at a pre-release screening. Directed by Angelina Jolie and written for the screen by the Coen Brothers (along with Richard LaGravenese & William Nicholson), I expect Unbroken to be nominated for at very least Best Adapted Screenplay.

Interstellar, 2014

Interstellar (2014)

December 8, 2014

I finally went to see Interstellar – IMAX. I started to get sick of every talk show making references, so I knew I needed to go soon… Before they start spoiling it.

Interstellar is pretty awesome, and I greatly appreciate all the practical effects in the film. I don’t think seeing the film in IMAX is a must, but definitely worthy of a visit to the theater.

Unlike Gravity, last year, I would definitely see Interstellar again.

Glengarry Glen Ross, 1992

Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)

December 7, 2014

“Nice guy? I don’t give a shit. Good father? Fuck you! Go home and play with your kids. You wanna work here – close!”

I don’t know I’ve ever watched Glengarry Glen Ross all the way through at one time… Until now.

Dirty Work, 1998

Dirty Work (1998)

December 7, 2014

“What I don’t understand is… when you owe a bookie a lot of money, and he, say, blows off one of your toes, you still owe him the money. Doesn’t seem fair to me. Especially when he’s gonna kill me in four days anyway.”

St. Vincent 2014

St. Vincent (2014)

November 17, 2014

St. Vincent was good, but not overly-memorable. It was nice seeing Melissa McCarthy in a less slap-stick type of role.

Wild 2014

Wild (2014)

December 2, 2014

I love seeing movies at pre-release screenings… And I got to see Wild early! An almost-tear-jerker, and probably the best I’ve seen Reese Witherspoon (granted, I don’t see a lot of Reese Witherspoon movies).
