Freshwater to Saltwater

Hi all... I was think of switching my 20g long tank from a freshwater tank to a saltwater. I began fishkeeping with freshwater because I wanted to know if I would really like the hobby as much as I thought I would. And I do. But saltwater tanks have always intrigued me but, I seriously have no idea where to start. What would be the first few steps to achieve this? Any advice is welcome. :) Thank you.
