Answering this based on the context of the question being asked from the POV of a CRM vendor looking to scale: The biggest challenge I've come across is attribution.

Those decisions are going to stem from what's working and what isn't. So that portion will fall into place relatively seamlessly.

Where we have used external research towards our segmentation processes is when we do message testing measured across different user groups and then review any consideration or preference gains we see ac...
