Does anyone have any pointers for finding good link sources.
Do you know where your competitors are getting links from? It is usually a good starting point to try and get links from the same places.
However, you should really have some idea of how to value the quality of those links. Are they on-topic? High authority? Would they drive traffic to your site?
Also, while some people dismiss it outright, having link exchanges with a few select related websites never hurt anyone. Just make sure that if visitors came to your site and saw that outbound link to another site, it would make sense to them.
As wheel mentioned, look through the library. Also, do look at every post by wheel, martinibuster, and CainIV on these boards. they know what they are talking about.
You WILL need some more content than just your ecommerce descriptions. But content can take many forms, not just necessarily articles.
Ultimately, you will need content that people WANT to link to. Identify the people from whom you want to receive links, create content that would appeal to them (and that they would be "advocates" for), and then tell them about it.
