First Walkers success story

Meet First Walkers

Supporting the healthy development of growing feet

First Walkers provides high-quality footwear to support babies and toddlers from their first steps through each developmental stage.

A holistic approach to children's orthopedics

Understanding the need for orthopedic shoes for children, First Walkers also offers a comprehensive range of footwear for different conditions, such as shoes for flat feet or toe walking.

A step towards wellness and style

First Walkers' orthopedic shoes cater to form and function, supporting foot conditions with kid-friendly designs ideal for health-conscious parents.


Filling the gap in a niche market

With conditions such as flat feet and clubfoot present in children, parents were looking for a remedy to their children's pain and discomfort.

First Walkers saw the opportunity to provide the necessary support for this demographic by using educational content to drive organic traffic to their site. Then, they could use targeted, bottom-of-the-funnel content to convert these visitors into paying customers.

Effectively marketing to a small audience unfamiliar with their products

The orthopedic footwear market in Australia is small, and the childhood orthopedic footwear market is even smaller. So, First Walkers was targeting a limited audience.

Plus, they needed a strategic approach to guide searchers down the funnel while educating them along the way. Their marketing strategy needed to highlight the importance of caring for growing feet through educational content that generates conversions.

We needed a way to get our products in front of the right audience, and Entail really helped us get there.
