I've never used link market, nor have I ever taught you or anyone else to use it for building links.
Although I have noticed that most of your pages have a positive pagerank, so that is a positive sign that google is trusting your website.
4 months isn't very long given that this is your first website and you possibly have made mistakes along the way, you've made good progress thus far with your pagerank.
When there are low sales with any of my websites I first ask the question, what are people looking for when they find my website? Am I getting enough visitors per day? If not, is there enough demand and have I done my research correctly? If there is demand, where am I ranking in the search engines for each of the phrases that I am trying to rank highly for? (it's important you track your rankings, I use traffictravis to do this).
If I'm getting lots of visitors but no sales, I look at what people are typing when they find my website and try to see if what I'm offering is what they are looking for. If I'm really stuck and just can't seem to convert sales, I opt for inserting google adsense in obvious positions and see how that goes (e.g. www.haircutadvice.com
I hope this helps, keep perservering as this is all a learning curve and is well worth your time when you do break through. The other option is you experiment with pay per click, e.g. via google adwords, to see if the products you are promoting actually convert well to sales when people are searching for them.
All the best,
