“Sami is a great teacher! I recently did one of her online courses and I enjoyed how easy she made it. The overwhelm was totally removed by her ability to break it down into smaller, understandable steps! She creates worksheets to guide you and everything is presented in a simple, easy to follow format. Sami makes thing easy for busy professionals, by teaching how to organize, by breaking down the many tasks into smaller tasks and by creating planning templates that are actually executable. Great job!!”

Meet our Founder

The First Click was founded by me, Sami Bedell-Mulhern. In 2017, I started my freelance business, H & E Marketing Solutions, helping small business owners, entrepreneurs and non-profits create and execute their digital strategies in Bend, OR.

While I enjoyed working with clients one-on-one, so many people came to me needing help, but they were in a place in their business where paying a consultant just wasn’t an option. 

So, I decided to create an education hub to give them access to FREE resources as well as courses for a deep dive!

I believe in the business you’re trying to build, and the impact you can make in your community – so let’s do this!
