You learn to hand pollinate.

Lots of plants also self-pollinate by wind or artificial air movement, such as a fan, but if you're not getting fruit set, as Daisy says, hand pollination is not difficult. Just use a tiny clean paint brush or a clean makeup brush, gather some pollen from one flower and transfer it gently to another.

tomatoes generally self-pollinate before the flowers open.
