Know Your Genre!
Understanding your genre and who your audience is will speed up your search dramatically.
Before you start searching for audio, ask yourself some key questions. Is my video a light-hearted TV commercial? Is my video for a corporate client? Or is my video something that needs to create suspense and drama?
