In brief: Salt and fluids

But the first question is why do you want to raise your bp? Unless you're dizzy (brief dizziness on first arising doesn't count), your low BP may be normal for you.
If your BP is >80 systolic and you're feeling ok, it could be a sign of health. If it's newly low, or if you're unwell (e.g., fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, confusion, lethargy), it's serious and needs prompt medical attention.

In brief: Evaluate cause

If you have symptoms or signs associated with low blood pressure (such as fainting, confusion, sleepiness, blurry vision, rapid heart rate, light headedness, dizzy, weakness, ) then please see your physician asap for evaluation of possible causes.
Healthy individuals without symptoms or known causes should not require treatment
