Born in Topeka, KS, D’Marie Delci has lived in Massachusetts, New Mexico, and Arizona. Although they won their first award as a writer in 3rd grade and contributed to literary journals in high school and political magazines in college, they did not pursue a career as a writer until later in life.
Thanks to a temporary placement, D’Marie was hired by an internet marketing agency in 2006 and was given a front row seat to the world of online content. Over the years they learned how to create targeted website and blog content as well as how to develop content strategies and implement ongoing content plans. With the rise of social media, D’Marie gained experience in utilizing social media platforms to expand the reach of businesses and brands, creating social media profiles that reflected a consistent brand message across multiple platforms, writing and directing content, and promoting that content to reach a larger audience. Along the way they wrote hundreds of blog posts across multiple verticals as a ghostwriter – and website content, articles, newsletters, and even press releases.
In addition to working in the burgeoning field of content marketing and creation, D’Marie was drawn to coach individuals experiencing creative blocks in their art or in business. As a collage and altered object artist as well as a writer, D’Marie knows the struggle to maintain habits that promote creative expression and has also learned how important creative thought is to building and expanding a business. The lessons and tools they learned through this struggle are shared through a growing practice as a creativity coach.
D’Marie currently resides in Phoenix, AZ with their spouse, cats, and housemate, but likes to travel and can, therefore, be found around the country. Follow them on social media or subscribe to the newsletter to keep appraised of travel plans and when they may be offering a workshop or attending an event in your area.
D’Marie has their hand in several different websites. They serve as Managing Editor and Co-Owner of all three and was responsible for designing all or part of two of the sites (as well as this one).
