What are some good tricks for breastfeeding?

Just FYI. Insurance usually pays for a lactation specialist/consultant. That is the best way to take care of all of your lactation problems and tricks. Congrats on the be baby and good luck.
Get comfortable. First and foremost get yourself in a comfortable position. Make sure you are well hydrated and eating a well balanced diet. Bring your baby up slowly toward your nipple and let her open her mouth fully then roll as much of your nipple and areola into the mouth. Let her come to the breast not forced or pushing the nipple/breast into her mouth.
