    Need good synonym

    We are building a site like Fiverr that accepts only advertising "gigs".

    We need to use different terminology so it won't be considered like a Fiverr site.

    What would be a good synonym for gig, job, task, etc that would make people think of advertising and yet not think of Fiverr or GigBucks, etc...

    That is contradiction and does not follow. You went out of your way to build a Fiverr knockoff you don't want to seem like a fiverr knockoff, when everyone is going to spend like five seconds and realize "Oh, a fiverr knockoff." But for the small self-delusion of renaming gigs.

    That's fooling nobody ...excepting perhaps yourself.
