Hello, around a month ago I started my own shopify store (https://hoodiebros.com) and it has gone not too bad, a few sales here and there but not as I would like.
All the sales I received were from posts I made on reddit and recently I've put lots of money into facebook ads and am yet to generate a sale from there. I have been trying to target the correct audiences but I'm not sure if I'm doing the best job I can do.
I would like to know if my website has the potential to sell products through facebook ads and some of the audiences I could target for my products.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Apparel sales like hoodies definitely have the potential to generate sales through Facebook.

There are a number of tips and tools you can use to make this less intimidating and increase the success of your ads:
I hope this helps you out!
All the best,
Congratulations on your new store. All the hoodies are really cool.
Considering the engagement you are getting on your facebook posts, facebook ads could be the major source of your revenue. Read this article, it will give you an idea to find just the right audience for your store. I see that you already have a facebook pixel on your store. Try running dynamic product ads to the people who have already visited your store. Retargeting ads work the best.
Apart from ads, make sure that you do organic products. Orangetwig will take care of your social media marketing. It autogenerates your posts (products in well designed templates) and you can schedule the post. Here are some sample posts.
