San West, Inc. Announces Major Improvements to E-Commerce Business

Surging Online Traffic Is Driving Rising Online Sales and Lower Advertising Costs

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 27, 2011) - San West, Inc. (OTCBB: SNWT), an emerging leader in the motor sports industry, and e-commerce partner www.CountyImports.com are excited to announce major improvements to their online business segment including increased sales and profitability.

Un-audited e-commerce sales for the first three weeks of June 2011 are up approximately 10% over the corresponding period of 2010 and management expects this trend to continue throughout the remainder of the month. On a year-to-date basis, the average purchase order has grown by approximately 9%, from $1,627 in 2011 versus $1,487 in 2010.

Meanwhile, San West's aggressive long-term online marketing strategy continues to bear fruit and has saved the company approximately $27,500 in paid advertising costs thus far in 2011, a figure that management feels can optimistically reach $54,590 by the end of the year. Year-to-date paid advertising costs have decreased approximately 37%, from $74,610.83 in 2010 to $47,120.54 in 2011. The company is also paying approximately 35% less in per unit paid conversion costs thus far in 2011 or $50.55 versus $76 in 2010.

The key driving force behind these improved business trends has been the continued growth of the website's (www.CountyImports.com) online traffic ranking. According to web analytic company Alexa, the website's U.S. traffic ranking has improved nearly 41% on a year-to-date basis as of 6/24/10.

Management notes a significant correlation between its improved online traffic ranking and lower advertising costs in 2011. The company also believes that its ability to attract and a greater amount of natural online traffic could enable www.CountyImports.com to achieve current levels of online sales with zero paid advertising costs, which would save nearly $100,000 in annual costs, if a U.S. traffic ranking of roughly 35,000 is obtained. As of 6/26/11, the website's U.S. Alexa ranking was 71,825.

"Our innovative and aggressive online marketing strategy continues to facilitate our ability to generate a rising flow of natural -- or unpaid -- website traffic and drive significant improvements in our e-commerce business segment. Overall, our online segment has been more profitable in 2011 than in 2010, a development that is opening up new opportunities for future expansion and providing www.CountyImports.com with a unique competitive advantage," commented San West, Inc. CEO Frank Drechsler.

Mr. Drechsler added, "Lower advertising costs are enabling us to provide the highest quality, in-demand products to consumers at the best price points. I believe that this ability, coupled with our world-class sales/service capabilities position our company at the forefront of the motor-sports industry. 2011 is shaping up to be a great year for San West and I look forward to keeping the public apprised of substantial corporate developments as they arise."
