Hmmmm, this is a bit of a loaded question...lol
400 click throughs to merchant site and .5% conversion would be 2 sales.
So don't be hard on yourself yet.
1. Get more linkbacks
2. More content
3. More keywords
May I suggest you separate your article paragraphs into more manageable pieces. It will be much easier to read instead of all bunched up together.
Also, You need some more content on your site.
You may also want to have comments/questions that people can ask so you can answer them as you said you were a builder?
Your friend is right in the fact that this is a small market.
Small shed plans ( Keyword ) has only 1000 searches a month globally.
If you were to gather 20 top keywords to do with sheds and write more articles you could tap into 10,000 to 20,000 searches a month for all the different keywords related to shed building.
I don't like the fact that the merchant hits my prospect up with a sign up box as soon as I go to the front page.
He gets the lead and can market to them with a discount.
This is unavoidable sometimes.. sigh.
I would also like to see some sort of a header at the top of your page.. maybe with a graphic etc...
I hope this market works out for you.
If after 6 months.. you have really got heaps of links back to your site and it's SEO is spot on... and you are still not making money.. my advice would be to either sell the site or put adsense on it.
You could even sell advertising if you have enough traffic.
Just my 2 cents.
