Schedule a tasks scheduler job with the backup command. In the simplest form it would be something like this:
BACKUP DATABASE [YourDbName] TO  DISK = N'C:YourBackupFolder\YourBackupfilename'

You can also schedule it using SQL Server Agent, and most people seem to prefer doing the backups using SQL Agent.
