I have a SKYPE account to speak with my family and friends overseas. I do not publish the number on marketing material. And I've never had a client ask to use SKYPE, but once... they were relocating from London to Charlotte with Wells Fargo. So that's how we first "met."

I use Skype from time to time, and had an account for a long time now. Skype can create 2 situations - one, your client can tell you are online, and they'll take note if you don't answer (unlike on your smartphone). Second, you are expected to do a video call when your Skype - that's what it's for... so... you get my point.
