The research is on codification of advertisement strategies in coherence with the export of pistachio in Kerman province by SWOT model. Objectives of the research were determining the most important advertisement strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of Kerman exporting pistachio and proposing appropriate strategies. At first according to the evaluations done on interior and exterior environment of exporting pistachio advertisement of Kerman province, a list of strong and weak points, opportunities and threats was observed. And after doing a survey by means of questionnaire from authorities (pistachio exporters of Kerman province) the statistical "T" test applied to confirm or deny the strong and weak points, opportunities and threats.
