Have you come across successful businesses which have essentially no information about themselves online? I realize even today the internet isn't essential to the successful operation of every business, but it's quite peculiar to run across them.

I know some very well paid woodworkers who dont market themselves at all. You have to catch them at their workshop in person. Email and phone are out of the question.

My husbands business. He's been doing it almost 30 years so prefers re-peat customers or to work for a friend. He doesn't like it when the public calls wanting something done though it's the customary way to do it. He doesn't care to work for strangers I guess.


Also a friend owns a business sweeping parking lots at night. No internet presence, the only competition is one other guy. He approaches those he wants to work for, and some who call him.
