    I've opened a Shopify store and bought a logo and a banner. I've put 120 niche related products on my website and opened a pinterest, facebook and reddit page.
    I started paying for some ads on Facebook but no purchases so far. I target them specifically and hope for the best. So far I get 50-80 visits a day.
    My questions are these:
    1. People usually go for the "item is free, just pay for shipping" kind of thing. I'm having my doubts about this and I was wondering, what if I just make all the items a bit more expensive, but shipping will be free? Would that also work?

    2. I opened a pinterest page, and added a bunch of my items there, but how do I drive traffic from there?

    3. I'm going to open a G+ and twitter page also. Are there any tutorials on how to target people on those social media platforms?

    4. I was think to open a youtube channel, buy a video from Fiverr and promote it under my niche's keywords, would that be a good idea?

    5. What are some great, unknown shopify secrets, or tips I can get to help boost traffic and finally make my first sell?

    Thank you.

    Just a small tip, make sure to build your pinterest profile before posting sales stuff, similar idea with other social media. Make sure to get a bunch of followers and join group boards and then make natural sales posts. I would make sure to use free advertising to get a sale before using fb ads just so you know the item will sell first. Also if you can, dont do a business page on pinterest, do a personal one as a female, it works better.

    It might be worth it to increase your reach and then try to market your products.
    And most of those questions can be answered with improving your lead-ins and expanding your social media presence.
