turn the motor over by hand to see if you can feel any thing broken

spray some starting fluid in the intake and see if it starts that way

Charge the battery.

The place you bought it from will probably charge it for free.

Original starter or starter solenoid ? Pull the starter and have it checked. Solenoids go bad with age (contacts get pitted,burnt) so you may want to change it out.
Check the bolts holding the starter to the engine as that is where it gets its ground , make sure they're tight.
