Default Skype from web page

Following a Skype (VOIP) conversation with Ian L this morning (evening Australian time!) and noticing the real improvement in voice quality following an upgrade to the latest version of Skype software, I decided that the time was right to add a SkypeMe logo and link on the contact page of my web developer site.

That was 2 hours ago, and I already have received two Skype calls from potential customers!

Why would this be useful if you sell a product or service? Skype software is free, calls to other Skype users are free - and it is simple to use. Skype seems to have the largest user base of the competing VOIP systems, especially in the UK. And you can get an immediate response from a simple link on a page! There could be potential for voice spamming, so I will watch this. In any case it is a simple mouseclick to block a Skype user from ever bothering you again.
