It is never an option for me to meet with my team via video. I got on a phone or Skype call with them a couple of times since 2005, but I didn’t like it. They did not like it, either!
That is partly why I don’t find a need to do it.
I do regularly send them videos of me, though. I record myself when I have to give them instructions or if there’s something I need to say to them. That’s why I don’t feel that we need meetings.
The closest thing we have to meetings is when we get on Campfire, which is part of Basecamp. It’s like a big group chat where everyone can see what’s being discussed.
We also have Slack channels, which is a really big chat. We usually have smaller groups, like our customer service people chatting or our social media team chatting.
