What is "the other way"?  I assume you want your score to go up?  It depends on what is on your credit report right now (late payments, collections, bankruptcy) or is it the fact you have no good credit?  We can't see your information on this website, so it is hard to say what you need to do.  However, I recommend you visit www.credit.about.com and start reading the articles that apply to your situation (and there will be tons).  You don't have to sign up for it, it's free and easy to understand advice.  Best of luck!

lower credit utilization. pay stuff on time (early) keep all accounts open so length of history stays as long as possible. don't appy for a bunch of new credit. 

one thing that does help is if you have a family member who will add you onto one of their cards as an authorized user. make sure its been open for at least a couple of years and the balance is very low.
