Professional Headshots for Team and Organizations

Headshots.com Product Update March 29, 2024

By March 29, 2024April 2nd, 2024No Comments

Three years ago, we started Headshots.com with a simple vision in mind: studio-quality, on-brand professional headshots using only a cell phone. We built a platform that was simple and easy to use. At first, we worried that our customers would hate it because it was so simple. Not to mention, we didn’t yet have a budget for a fancy design or user testing. 

We were surprised when the feedback from customers and interested buyers started rolling in: they loved it. People didn’t care about the application design. They just wanted great headshots for their team – and we delivered on that. Version 1.0 had a great product-market fit that served our customers well for the better part of 3 years. 

However, we took for granted that our customers loved our product. Our customers’ needs have become more complex and their requirements expanded. We’re great at the headshot part, but we’re relatively new to web application development. (Our founder is a headshot photographer, afterall, not a web developer.)

Over the past 12 months we’ve been collecting feedback from customers and making improvements so that you can do even more with Headshots.com. Our goal is to give you more robust tools that simplify your life, not complicate it. We’ve listened to your feedback and have identified one thing that many of our customers have in common: unique situations with a need to customize the way they communicate with their team and deliver photos. 

We’re thrilled to introduce a set of new features designed to give you more control and customization options for managing headshots within your team.

Here’s what’s new:

Brand New Team Dashboard:

➜ We’re thrilled to unveil our revamped Team Dashboard, designed to streamline your team’s headshot management process like never before. With our latest enhancements, you can effortlessly handle every aspect of your team’s headshots, making your workflow smoother and more efficient than ever. Here’s what you can continue to do seamlessly with our rebranded Team Dashboard:

■ Add or remove team members with ease.

■ Enhanced Security: Password protection is available for all dashboards.*

■ Team Leader Approval: Team leaders can now approve a headshot before it’s delivered.*

■ Quality Preferences: We’ll always index towards quality, but team leaders can now set their team to index towards completion, allowing lower quality submissions to be retouched.*
