What I guess from your discussion,

You need to model:     Y(Fail/Succeed)=f(marketing Options)+Covariates

Is this not a case of simple Logistic Regression with Marketing
Options as Categorical Indicator variables?

So your model should like:      -xt-logit y options covariates

where -xt- is optional in case if you had panel data.
