About Webworks of KC
My name is Travis Pflanz. I create websites & digital marketing strategies so small businesses can compete with large businesses online.
As a Small Business Owner
I understand the struggles of growing and running a local business from the ground up.
I understand that small businesses must evaluate every dollar spent, to help maximize return, grow sales, and grow a customer base.
With every project I take on, I take the approach that a business’s website must be the central hub of a digital marketing machine. Developing a solid strategy around a business’s target and ideal customers and website, service, and/or product content is crucial to the success of every business’s website – I will never throw-up a website, just to “get it done.” That is not the right strategy for success.
Successful digital marketing projects begin by creating a strategy by identifying the project’s goals, researching the competition and target customer, setting expectations and setting methods for measuring the success of the project. Then, continue to monitor and improve the marketing strategy and website to evolve with market trends and customer expectations.
I take on clients who understand that a website is much more than an online brochure. My clients want and expect a higher level of service – an ongoing and continually evolving digital marketing relationship – helping each of our businesses grow and succeed.

The Beginning of WebWorks of KC
Inevitably, one of the first questions every potential client asks is – “How did you get into web design?”
While attending University of Missouri – Kansas City in the Business Administration (with an Emphasis in Finance) program, I started taking web development classes as electives.
I first began developing websites as a hobby for friends, and to keep the history of my fantasy football league (pretty nerdy motivation, right?).
Quickly, I realized I could merge my marketing and business acumen with my passion for building websites – Web Works of Kansas City was officially born in 2007 with my first paying client, a small restaurant in Olathe, KS.
Then, in 2012, the company became Web Works of Kansas City, LLC. Today, Web Works of Kansas City has dozens of clients on recurring hosting, WordPress maintenance, SEO, and digital marketing service plans – and ever-growing.
