Online Advertising ? (Business question)?

Im working on a paper for school about Social Media advertising and basically how much ads costs and if the profits outweigh the initial ad purchase costs?

the question I m most stuck on is : Does excessively advertising really increase profits drastically for the company?

    It's entirely subjective, as it depends on the ROI (return on investment) of the ad. Social media ads can be good increasing brand awareness, which could result in the business getting a new client, and if the business sells products for thousands, they'll make a profit.

    Excessive advertising may be good for increasing brand awareness but won't always increase profits directly.
