Mobile network operator Sunday Communications Ltd. burst onto the scene in 1997 with an innovative approach to branding and promotion. Its “feels like Sunday” series of television commercials depicting irreverent attitudes and typical person-presenters struck a chord with Hong Kong customers and generated an initial interest that surpassed expectations for the late-entry mobile network provider. Encouraging initial sales figures coupled with a highly visible brand positioned Sunday to be a serious contender within the acutely competitive mobile phone sector. But despite its successes, Sunday claimed a mere 9.8% of the market in 2000 and 8.3% in 2005. With the mobile phone sector in Hong Kong operating at maximum penetration, would the lure of the Sunday brand prove strong enough to sustain a loyal subscriber base long term? Would its irreverent brand image eventually wear thin?
