Foot Fairy App on Shark Tank

Shark Tank Season 5 Finale
The entrepreneurs behind the Foot Fairy App are Sylvia Sharpiro and Nicole Brooks who made the final cut and will be on Shark Tank's Season 5 Finale. The idea to create an App that measures your kid's foot size was born more out of necessity with a combined 6 children between them. They figured there must be a better and more fun way to measure kid's shoe size that takes all the guess work out of buying the correct size. Sylvia and Nicole thought a little outside the box as far as Apps go, and figured if you're measuring your kid's feet for a new pair of shoes, why not make it convenient to buy a pair at the same time. Thus the name Foot Fairy that measure's your foot size and sends a new pair of shoes within a few days' time.
Below is a video with our newest Shark Tank Contestants Sylvia Sharpiro and Nicole Brooks, demonstrating how easy it is to measure your kid's correct foot size using the Foot Fairy App.
Foot Fairy App before Shark Tank Update
It looks like Dr. Sylvia Sharpiro knows a thing or two more than just measuring kids feet sizes. Sylvia also runs the Dr. Shoe Mom website, as we'll as Planet Flops which sells Eco-friendly flip flops. It doesn't appear Nicole Brooks is involved in either of these foot related site's, which if brought up during their interview with the Sharks, may create a small problem as far as investing in the Foot Fairy App. The Sharks are notorious for wanting a piece of the whole pie with a stake in all related businesses taking up the entrepreneur's time.
What's very unique about this iPad App that first cost $1.99 per download, but now you can Download it Free, is the convince for buying shoes online once the Foot Fairy determines the correct size. Partnering with one of the largest online shoe stores on the entire Internet, Zappos.com, the Foot Fairy App has an affiliate partnership that conveniently sends you to the correct page filled with hundreds of shoe's to choose from. I'm not exactly sure when the decision was made to give away the app for free, and then make the revenue on the back-end selling shoes via an affiliate partnership, but this certainly sounds like a much better and more creative way to keep making money multiple time's from the same app. I don't know about you, but this certainly has my mind going a thousand miles an hour thinking what other free app's could use this business model to build an ongoing stream of income.
At this time the Foot Fairy App is available only for iPads, but will be available on Android devices later this year. The customer reviews for the Foot Fairy App gives this download a whopping 4.5 Stars out of 5 Stars. Just the fact you can make a game with your kids when it comes to buying a new pair of shoes, no doubt will appeal to thousands of Shark Tank Fans.
