Rupa Shah, founder of Hashtag Ad Consulting

Our "How to Attract Big Brands" programme has been created by Hashtag Ad Consulting Founder, Rupa Shah.

Rupa is Founder and Director of Hashtag Ad Consulting, a London firm that provides guidance and training on the advertising rules to social media and influencer marketers.  

Rupa works closely with influencers, their managers, ad agencies, tech platforms and brand owners to embed compliance throughout the marketing process and, ultimately, to help brands and influencer marketers protect their reputation. 

Before she founded Hashtag Ad in 2015, Rupa trained in law and worked at the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for 13 years, where she investigated complaints, gave advice to brands and helped enforce ASA rulings against influencers (through some quite frankly sneaky techniques). 

Rupa has written CAP guidance papers, given countless influencer industry presentations and worked with some amazing brands, including Benefit Cosmetics, but recognises that it's often influencers who suffer the most damage from ASA or CMA rulings.

Rupa is a CAP panel member, was awarded #Influencer50 for the past two years, is a regular judge at the Blogosphere Awards and was recently interviewed by Al Jazeera News on the topic of influencer disclosure and transparency.

Rupa's knowledge is vast

Lauren Spearman, Made.Com & Benefit Cosmetics

Rupa has been a pleasure to work with over the past 18 months. Rupa's knowledge is vast, with no question too big or small. We worked with Rupa to ensure we were adhering to ASA guidelines, and Rupa will be the first person I go to for a 'can I just check...?' question. :-)

Rupa's extensive knowledge is invaluable to influencers

Valerie Merut, Mason Rose

Rupa’s extensive knowledge of the ASA and CMA rules is invaluable to influencers, brands and agencies alike. Having worked at the ASA for several years, she knows the rules inside out and was able to answer all of our questions and clear out any grey area. Rupa was also instrumental in helping us develop a compliance strategy to ensure all parties involved in our influencer activations fully understand the regulations. Thank you Rupa, it's been such a pleasure working with you!
