Is she ready or are you trying to get her trained by a certain date (like her birthday)? If you force her when she's not ready, you will be pulling your hair out and will actually take many months MORE than if you wait and teach her when she's ready.
Remember, half of all kids are ready by 2.5 years old. The other half are ready AFTER 2.5 years.
If she is ready, then you need to find a way to make it her idea. Reading her books and watching DVD's about potty training helps. Especially if the have a favorite character in them.
