Decide on your time frame to achieve your goal.

Delay will cripple your learning curve and potential to make money online.
Your ebook marketing plan should include some of the following tools:
Your own website
Myspace page - Social networking websites are great, but you want your own space, domain name or web address. Get your own website address today at 1and1.
Word of mouth
Free teleseminar (telephone seminar)
Free webinar (Internet seminar)
I’ve used some portion of each of these tools to promote the Music Industry Connection Book Series. One of the quickest ways to build a quality opt-in email list is by setting up an automated sevice where guest can subscribe and unsubscribe to your newsletter. Next you’ll want to set up an account with a popular or niche specific social networking site such as Myspace, Google or Facebook. Once your account is set up you’ll want to include a short form where guest on your social networking page can automatically join your email newsletter.
Creating a short video for your ebook, info-product, special report or self published paperback book is an awesome way to market your book.
You could use your video in the following ways:
Upload your video to your Myspace, Facebook, Youtube Site, etc.
Upload your video to your official website and blog pages.
Email your video in your newsletter.
This is meant to either get you started or get your creative juices flowing so you can create and implement a practical marketing plan for your ebook, info-product, special report or self published paper back book. Remember your plan need not be elaborate for you to achieve success. It does call for you to take immediate daily action.
