Not all keywords are created equal. In my experience, the best converting keywords are long tail ones, ones the customers use to find what they are looking for, and often not displayed by keyword research tool data.
Product keywords are good, but product review keywords could be better. If you can rank for the term "product + review", the people who search for that term could really be in a buying mode. Therefore, even with a low amount of visitors per month, you could make money due to the high converting nature of the keyword.
Of course, the exact match product keyword is good to target also. Maybe one "plan of attack" you could do is first go after the product review keyword and make your first few sales and get commissions, then use the profit to go after the main product keyword.
