Networking is a vital tool in achieving an image/brand. Establish a network like a wheel. The hub is core content (web site, blog, books, articles, useful materials). The spokes leading from the hub are the tools to network content that is linked to the hub.
Contacts are the engines that power the wheel.
Content is the fuel that feeds the social networking contacts and powers the wheel.
As the wheel turns, the quality of the networking improves with feedback and the wheel climbs the optimization hill of the major search engines (SEO).
Limiting factors are the quality of the core content and knowledge/persistence in networking.

Branding. This comes before any kind of marketing. There are many tools out there to help you build a brand at little to no cost to start with, and I'm happy to guide you through with this, as it is an area of expertise. Find websites that generate logos to create one for your business if you haven't already. Put up pages representing your brand/ product on different social platforms and expand your customer base through engaging them with photos, videos, & interesting content about your products and their uses. Nothing fancy is necessary. Transparent, short, & useful. Listen to them_customers, and act according to their expressed "pains". You can also create a website for your business, using simple user friendly website builders. Finally, look in your community and find collaborators with the set of skills you lack to help each other level up.
