During last week’s webinars, I got a lot of similar questions related to manufactured spending. Many of these questions were addressed in ms-related posts over the last four years. But thanks to the results of a recent survey, I’ve realized a large portion of my readership consists of newbies who have missed my earlier posts. I figured it would be helpful to compile them all to give newbies an easy reference. The posts have been divided into five categories to make them easier to sort through. They should answer most of your questions about manufactured spending, but if anything is missing, feel free to ask in the comment section.
