Asking a reviewer to edit their review

Asking a reviewer to edit their review can feel like a difficult task or, or seem like you are inconveniencing the reviewer, however, editing a DealerRater review is a quick and easy process for the reviewer who submitted the review.

Reaching out with a private response asking a reviewer to edit their review can be an important final step in working with reviews, so to help you get started, copied below are some templates based on successful messages our dealerships have used in the past.
