I spent the best part of the last three years focused on assisting editorial teams in driving traffic through celebrity searches.

It was fast paced, breaking, and quite often absurd. It is also possibly the most transient search vertical of them all, with the fickle nature of celebrity appeal rising and falling in rapid media driven spikes.

Those individuals, of course, aren't interested exclusively in liking Coca-Cola or posting messages on Lady Gaga's wall; they primarily want to interact with real people.

Some of the world's most recognizable brands collectively spend billions of dollars annually associating themselves with celebrities (movie stars, athletes, etc.). The logic is simple: consumers love celebrities, and by associating with the right ones, brands can generate goodwill and buzz.

Should you hire a ghostwriter to be your social media personality?

The rise of social media has posed a challenge to the well-known. That challenge: working social media without being forced to work too hard on social media. After all, if you're rich and/or famous, blogging and tweeting is more likely to seem like a burden on your lifestyle than, say, a pastime.

An obvious solution: hire a ghostwriter. Which is precisely what many business executives, media personalities, professional athletes and celebrities have done. The February issue of Entrepreneur Magazine goes behind the scenes and profiles some of the 'ghostbloggers' who blog and tweet for well-known clients.
