I bought the potty and let her play with it. If yours is old enough to help pick it out, that's a bonus!
I encouraged her to sit on the potty (with clothes) whenever I went to the bathroom.
As I changed her diapers I would talk about how she would go peepee and poopoo in the potty one day, just like mommy.
I'd ask her if mommy wore diapers or panties and where did mommy go peepee.
We read storybooks and watched DVDs about potty training.
I let her run around without pants and got her to the potty when she started to go. After several episodes of this she made the connection between peeing and getting to the potty.
