    The first question you should ask is "What is my goal", that will narrow your search and options.

    You should start from the most SEO like doing manual bookmarking for home page and internal articles, write original content related to your niche and publish it sites like tumblr, hubpages, wordpress with your website link at bottom of the page. Make videos on your niche and publish it in youtube, metacafe,etc. There are most basic and important initial steps for getting links to your website.

    Start with content marketing and social bookmarks. Look for websites you can post your articles on in exchange for a link back.

    The main rule of internet is to never blindly trust what others say. Test, retest and then test some more on every bit of information you get from public sources. When someone says "this and that works better/worse than before" it's almost never backed up with analytical data, and you should take their words with a grain of salt.

    And to OP: you're in the right place. It's overwhelming, but if you want to start doing SEO, BHW is a gold mine of information.

    Ist check out the competition
    If the keywords are too competitive, then it will break your heart.

    If your looking to make money, make sure your niche is monetizable
    Not all niches are goldmines

    Ask a more experienced SEO guy to have a look at it for you. If your not sure

    You can PM me if you want and Ill take a look at it for you.

    Ok, you have got many good replies for where to get backlinks and like many have suggested check competition first - this should be done even before site is up.

    After that learn On-page SEO and only after that start off-page SEO. Even the best and strongest Off-page SEO cant rank and keep you up if your on-page SEO is off.
