How to cycle my tank?

I have been cycling my 75 gallon for about 5 days now
I mixed my own water to fill it up at first but plan on buying pre-mixed saltwater from my lfs because I do not have a RO/DI system
Should I be adding a source of ammonia everyday or let it happen naturally? Also, should i be running my protein skimmer? An one more! Should I be doing any water changes?
Thanks in advance!
