A secured card helped me increase my credit score, as they report much more often than other cards. However, they do require a deposit and have an annual fee. But of you have a low score - whether it be from bad credit or no credit - a secured card may be your best bet. If your credit is damaged by debt, it is best to clear that debt before attempting to obtain credit. 

Best of luck!
