If you just started, the best thing you can do is watch other climbers who know what they are doing, and move like they do.

As far as basic general advice, try and make your climbing controlled, careful, and efficient. Place your feet carefully, don't slap them around. Try to keep your arms straight when you're hanging, rather than bent as it wastes a lot of energy. When using a hand or foothold put some thought into what directions you can push/pull on it and which you can't, and use it accordingly. Learn about step throughs, flagging, and footwork in general; if you can't make a move put your feet somewhere else and try it again.

Keep climbing a few times a week and you'll get it before too long. Self Coached Climber is the go-to climbing technique book, look into it if you want though it's by no means mandatory. (It will help though.)

Aaand that's all I can think of off the top of my head.
