There are many different ways to convert your money to Bitcoin, but these are two of the easiest ways for beginners:
Credit card to Bitcoin

Cash to Bitcoin
You might prefer purchasing Bitcoin with cash if you can find someone nearby who can provide this service to you. Check out LocalBitcoins.com to see if there is someone in your area who accepts cash (or other types of payment). You can find local sellers who are online right away, and you will need to set up a LocalBitcoins.com account to contact them.
Western Union to Bitcoin
