    I want to start building email lists with IG and I have just one question:
    if I link to a landing page just to collect email leads with a strong call to action, without any content locker or stuff like that, will it risk to cause a ban? or is it safer than doing CPA (pre lander > content locked landing).

    What's your experience?

    If you want your own list you need your own opt in form via aweber.

    I know... I have my landing page with opt-in form, and I use Sendy on my own server + Amazon SES to send email, much cheaper for huge lists.

    LOL well obviously this ^ is complete bs.

    No you won't get banned if you add a link with an opt-in page. I have this on my pages and I have had 0 problems collecting emails.

    I am interested in your Sendy + Amazon setup. How much does this cost you?

    Lol.... billions and billions of user banned! This is the most untrue thing you can say. :D

    Sendy is $59 (one time fee) https://sendy.co/
    And you will need a very good hosting or a VPS where to install it
    While Amazon SES is $0.0001 per email sent. So sending 1.000.000 emails in one month will cost you $100.

    Amazon SES is a weird beast to work with. You start with a very low sending rate after you verify your account (14 emails/sec and 50.000 emails per day), but after sending a couple of campaigns, if you manage to keep your bounce and complaint rate very low (someone say <5%), you can ask for progressive increases. So your list should be legit and not too spammy ;)

    No you won't. As long as you company with their polices, you should be golden.

    I read a few bad reviews from people saying that their messages get sent to SPAM a lot when using Amazon SES. What is your take on this?

    Mmm, I'm not sure. I also have read a lot of different opinion. I think it depends a lot if you add the amazon DKIM verification records in your domain DNS, and, of course, on the subject and content of your emails.
