There are a lot of options for a level 0 backup and I can't go through all of them and guess what is best for you. But here is how you set the cron job, just add your command in place of <command>.

first type the following to edit crontab:

crontab -e

Then add this line:

@monthly <command>

Then your command will run on the first of every month.

Or you can create a script for the backup and then create a cronjob to execute the script once a month.

Check this for creating cronjob:
