You are confused. Showcasing what you already have, and trying to get people to buy it or adopt it, and without having influence on what comes next, is not marketing. It's sales, which is a completely different function in most businesses.
Marketing is future-directed, and is about getting both the developers and the customers/users to buy in to future plans. Marketing, in a company, is about setting that company's future direction.
