The best advice I can give is don't get in too much of a hurry. Getting a few links by submitting to directories on including a link in your signature on forums that cover your niche in some way is probably a good thing, but getting carried away is generally where people go wrong. It takes time for your site to grow with quality, but it will if you spend time making it a worthwhile resource. It's pretty easy to spot a site that really gets a lot of TLC, and your visitors will notice that too.
