We had a similar story. In fact we spent 2 years developing our product and just relying on word of mouth and developer forums for users.
Actually, this a good problem to have ! The fact that you have spent lot of time on product dev means that when you start the marketing engine, you can start getting revenue very fast ! Most startups fail coz they start marketing a product that is not needed instead.
