Hylite vs. Other Review Platforms


In the ever-growing, ever-complex online landscape, there are thousands of avenues for speaking with friends, family, and coworkers. How can you tell which is the right way for you to connect with the people you need to connect with? When it comes to running a business, that decision-making process can be even more complicated: deciding how to reach potential customers, and how to properly receive feedback from existing customers. While review sites like Yelp may be popular, are they really the best solution?


Hylite is a positive-only, text-based alternative to Yelp that is growing rapidly. Here are 3 ways that Hylite is different from other review platforms, and why using Hylite might be the right choice for your business.

Hylite Is Positive Only 

While criticism is valuable and has its place, positivity and compliments are just as important, and are incredibly important when it comes to cultivating a healthy work environment. With Hylite, there’s a focus on workplace positivity; over 99% of Hylites received are positive, and many are person-specific and beautifully detailed. The result is improved employee morale, as workers know that their efforts are being seen and appreciated. Workplace positivity is key for so many reasons: it can boost employee engagement, productivity, and retention. Investing in positive feedback ensures that employees will feel valued and appreciated, and in turn creates a healthier, happier work environment.

Hylite Is Easy-to-Use and Doesn't Require An Account

Have you ever wanted to say something kind to someone, but have struggled to find the right moment or opportunity? Sometimes it can be difficult to make our voices heard, especially within the limitations of typical retail interactions. Review platforms might try to offer solutions, but they often require you to jump through hoops of making an account, which might even include giving them your name and email address. Sometimes it can feel like it’s not worth going through all that effort. 


Hylite is incredibly easy to use: all you need to do is send a text. No account, no verification-- you don’t even have to scratch your head to figure out if the service was 4 or 4.5 stars. Name the employee you want to Hylite, and then drop a compliment. It’s that easy! With Hylite’s simplicity and ease of access, it’s no wonder that most businesses see over ten times as many Hylites as Yelp reviews.

Hylite Is Direct

When you want feedback, you want it accessible, and you want it fast. With other websites, it can take weeks of refreshing your page to see one or two reviews, which can be frustrating and demoralizing. But Hylite will directly send you a summary of your Hylites every week, as well as a link to a page where you can see all of your Hylites as they come in. Even employees can sign up to be notified by text or email when they get Hylited, and they can take just a few seconds to follow the link and see the good things that customers had to say about them. No more waiting; see your feedback immediately. 

Hylite is a breath of fresh air in the complex world of online reviews. It’s simple, direct, and, above all, focused entirely on positivity. There are countless reasons to choose Hylite, and countless ways that Hylite can help your business thrive. Want to know more? Sign up here to bring Hylite to your team!
