New York, New York – Aug. 16, 2019 – Five Blocks, a digital reputation management technology and service firm announced today that Raphi Salem has joined its team in New York. A veteran entrepreneur and business strategist Raphi Salem has joined Five Blocks as its Senior Growth Specialist. Raphi will lead the New York office and champion the company’s partnership creation, growth, and expansion as an increasing number of corporations and high-profile individuals seek innovative solutions in order to recover from digital crisis, and crisis-proof their online presence. Five Blocks provides expert consulting and proprietary technology to build and protect digital reputation, in an era of split-second search-based business decisions.
Raphi is highly familiar with this territory. As an entrepreneur, he started his own Internet and E-commerce company in 1997, and has consulted with, built, and managed the digital presence for hundreds of organizations and professionals in the United States, Europe, and Israel. He is a skilled expert in the fields of Reputation Management, SEO, SEM, Social Media, and both E-mail and Affiliate Marketing. Raphi has held senior positions at various technology companies focused on digital and integrated marketing, having started his career at BBDO Advertising, NBC Television, and Cablevision before moving to the Start-Up Nation to work with Direct Satellite Television, OLiVR/LivePicture, and other ventures. Raphi is also the founder of two business networking organizations and is a sought-after public speaker — passionate about technology, community, networking, and business strategy. Raphi has a BA in Industrial/ Organizational Psychology from Queens College in New York and has taught “Internet Marketing Essentials” at Pace University in New York City and Westchester, NY.
Five Blocks CEO Sam Michelson notes, “We are interested in scaling quickly, both in terms of clientele and our tech / service offerings, and we are excited to have Raphi on board to help make it happen. Raphi understands both the way people think, and the way computers are taught to think, the combination of which is essential to success in this field. A recent Five Blocks survey found that people usually turn to Google first when researching a topic – more often then they go to corporate or personal websites, and way more often than social media. Google and Wikipedia are literally the gateway to how people perceive you, and intelligently managing that information delivery gateway is key. We are counting on Raphi to help bring this crucial awareness to the rooms where decisions are made about PR, Marketing, and Digital budgets.”
