Since I work with people all over the country and the world, I’ve found Skype to be invaluable. Since we can’t physically get together, I love being able to conduct Skype video chats with them. Video helps establish rapport because we can see each others eyes and smiles. In the end, Skype video strengthens relationships.

I recommend Skype to all my clients and more often than not, they wonder how they operated before without it. There’s just something about seeing other people. Oh, and lets not forget the screen sharing and file transfer features of Skype too.

I was interviewed over at the Skype Business Blog with my friend Terry Brock. Here we talk about how we’re using Skype video.

Update: I added a link to a new Skype course I developed to help people get the most from Skype. It’s over a hour’s worth of video training. It not only shows you “how-to” but also gives you creative ideas on how to apply the 10-key Skype features to your business.

If you haven’t tried Skype yet, you’re really missing out. You can download and use it for free. What are you waiting for?
