The Skype button is a great way to stay in touch with your visitors in your website or blog. Being in direct contact with your visitors is one of the most important things that affect the raising of the value of your website or blog. Especially if you have a website on which you offer products or services to your visitors, it is definitely important to keep contact with your visitors or customers in order to show that you are loyal to them.
You all know that Skype is the most recognized service that offers free voice calls and chats over internet. So they give the opportunity to their users to be also present in their websites or blogs.
