Listrak, an award winning provider of hosted email marketing solutions, announced today that Ken Chertow's Gold Medal Wrestling Camp & Wear and Gear, an all encompassing wrestling center featuring books, videos, gear, and 23 training camps nationwide, has implemented Listrak's powerful email marketing solution. It is using the software to manage its list and send out a weekly "mega blaster" email to 83,000 recipients, and smaller, more targeted emails as well.

"Listrak has given us the ability to clean up and manage our lists," says Stephanie Girouard, Merchandise Manager of Wear and Gear. "The built-in deliverability tools and opt-out features give us the peace of mind to know that our messages are being well received by our members. We're currently segmenting our lists so we can reach our members with an even greater degree of personalization."

Ken Chertow's Gold Medal Training Camp and their merchandise company Wear and Gear previously sent their email campaigns manually from an in-house mail server. Subscriptions for their email newsletters were also manually entered into the system as most sign ups were obtained at wrestling tournaments. Now, subscribers may sign up directly on

"Our goal is to make our email messages more relevant to our members," says Girouard. "We offer specialized products and services to different wrestling divisions, age groups, and weight classes. The segmenting tools in Listrak allow us to reach the audience in each group with customized messages that will be important to them without having to read through irrelevant information."

Ross Kramer, CEO of Listrak, says, "Chertow Camps does a great job of providing information to all of their members. Our solution will enhance what they already had in place and will make it much easier and less time consuming for them to manage their subscriber list."
