What were the METHODS used by Hitler to help him rise to power? (I know that propaganda was one of them) but are there any other ones? Thank you

He used the "terror" aka the SA/SS/Gestapo to intimidate people into supporting him for example they regularly stormed communist party meetings and beat and killed the attendees.

If we are including the chancellor to fuhrer period (so the year 1933), he pressured Hindenburg (the president) to use article 50 of the Weimar constitution to make laws by decree that supported the nazis. A good example of this is the law for the protection of people and state after the Reichstag Fire (I would also do a paragraph on the reichstag fire itself if you aren't including it in propaganda.)

In addition, it's important to note that the Weimar years were characterised by political insurgence, which was calmed from 1924 - 29 by the Locarno Pact, the Young Plan and the Dawes Plan. So, when the Wall Street Crash happened in 1929, it made Germany desperate and fearful again.

The Nazis took full advantage of this; their 1932 election results are more or less proof of that. Hitler made a platform that appealed to all sectors of society, which was aided by the fact every sector had something to lose. Subsequently, every sector put their trust in Hitler. The only serious threat was from the KPD (Communist Party), which they removed using the Reichstag Fire (which I'm assuming you know about).
