puff

Here is my best explanation:

'publicity' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'fellows turned up first' is the wordplay.
'fellows' becomes 'ff'.
'turned' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'first' says to put letters next to each other.
'up' back-to-front is 'pu'.
'ff' after 'pu' is 'PUFF'.
