Top 7 Finder's Fees Tips

By J. Stephen Pope

Consider the lucrative opportunity open to you in earning finder's fees. A finder is someone who finds something for a person or business. The amount paid for this service is called a finder's fee. Here are seven tips to help you make your fortune in finder's fees.

  1. A finder simply introduces a buyer to a seller for a fee.
    He does not become involved in the sales process and is not
    an agent acting on behalf of the seller.

  2. The best areas to earn finder's fees are those in which
    you already have expertise and interest. For example, if
    you are an expert on airplanes and have connections in the
    aviation industry, you could earn finder's fees finding
    suitable planes for those needing them.

  3. Protect yourself with written contracts. Also, document
    all efforts you have made to earn your finder's fee.

  4. You can earn finder's fees in many areas including
    equipment (used or new), equipment leasing, finding
    locations for franchises or vending, scarce materials,
    commodities, financing, et cetera.

  5. Connections are the inventory of a finder. You are being
    paid to find something of value by someone who doesn't know
    where (or doesn't have the time) to find it. Your knowledge
    of where and who to get something from is invaluable
    information that people are willing to pay for.

  6. Just as the business that sells something pays its sales
    staff, likewise the seller generally pays the finder's fee.
    The seller is the one that makes a profit from the sale and
    so usually is the one that pays commissions or finder's

  7. It is possible to find finder's fees opportunities
    offered in magazines, newspapers, and newsletters. You can
    find additional opportunities by doing your own research.
    Use your contacts, reference and phone books at the library,
    the Internet, persons you know (or don't know) who might
    have the information you need, as well as other sources to
    find what is needed.
