As a virtual worker (as some might call it), we need to keep in constant communication just incase I might have urgent questions that’s crucial to move forward or some followups on approvals.
You and your team probably have a default chat app, text is fine but sometimes it just doesn’t cut it for me. Sometimes it is faster to have a quick skype call and get all the questions answered, in other times sharing screens to indicate something is faster as well rather than exchanging messages with screenshots.
- I usually use skype for calls. I find skype really useful if you have something to show me from your screen as I record these calls and review them after the call incase Ive missed something.
- Facetime, Hangouts, can work well too as long as we can talk.
