Evolved Financial Sense's subscription services system to more tightly integrate with the existing content delivery platform. Also developed various content distribution capabilities using RSS feeds and iTunes, which delivers new podcasts immediately to FS Insider subscribers. Also identified technical architecture best practices, prioritized infrastructure needs, and implemented applications to enhance performance, scalability, marketing, ecommerce, and support future growth of the site.
Financial Sense was named one of the top financial websites by Barron's, and provides free educational resources to the broad public audience through editorials, current news and resource links on salient market issues. Started in 1985 as a local talk radio program, the Financial Sense Newshour is now a free weekly podcast with host Jim Puplava and top financial thinkers.

The Shimshock Group's vision, planning, and technical delivery skills were essential to the success of our subscription system upgrade. The new platform is much more stable, streamlines the purchasing process, and has reduced our customer service issues. We've also really enhanced the subscriber experience by having Financial Sense Insider content directly available on the site and through iTunes. We would not have been able to accomplish this project without the talents of Ron and his team.
