Discount on first order or free shipping on first order
A really simple one this... A % discount on the first order for any new customer or free shipping on the first order.
Would be a good idea to encourage the customer to create an account to promote loyalty.
This is quite commonplace and would be a brilliant feature to have.

I found a plugin that can do exactly the same as the idea. You guys can check it here: https://beeketing.com/beeketing-for-woocommerce?utm_channel=referral&utm_medium=forum&utm_term=ideaswc
Install this one and add Checkout Boost app. You will be able to offer free shipping, a discount, a free gift to encourage your customers to checkout.
The best thing is you can add a condition for your offer. By which, you can limit your offer to a certain people only. For example, I only want to offer customers who buy $100.
Hope this helps

Would a coupon promotion work?
This extension allows you to restrict a coupon to first time customers:
Yes, It is a necessary option. Many shop owners like to give first purchase shipping free or give a discount.
