    Hi, so I recently made a short 14 page e-book. It's about how to become good in texas hold em and overcome luck. the e-book price is 7.49
    I have $0 online so I can't do things like afford a website.

    Anyone have any idea how I can market this e-book and get lots of sales?

    Check out Amazon, they have an option of selling your ebook through them. I think it's free, they just take some comission. Not sure though, google it.

    You can submit it to clickbank and hope people sell it or you can build a website/landing page and get it traffic. You'd either have to pay someone to do it or learn how to do those things yourself.

    People are mostly interested in making real money hence you will find it hard marketing a product that suggests better strategies for unreal poker. I'm sorry to break it for you but without a website and a proper marketing plan you're not going to make any sale. But since you wrote the ebook yourself why don't you write about money making? Read a lot of threads on here, rehash and sell somewhere else.

    You can try selling it on forums about texas hold em. Targeted forums can always generate sales.

    put your ebook on e-junkie and create a buy now button (you can use their marketplace too), you can find coupon codes to use their service for free for a couple of months, but you'll start with a free 1 week trial

    use social media, it's free

    try to promote your ebook on poker forums (using your sig), be a part of the conversation, help people out and try to look authority

    spam poker rooms :)

    If you do not have a name in poker, nobody will buy that book, I am sorry. There are too many sources of free information (even videos), that to sell something to this topis is possible only if you represent the brand...
    So if your initials are not DN, TG, PG, AF or VS, you rather think again and work on your market research skills.

    I am sorry to tell you this, but someone had to...
