Mobile network operator Sunday Communications Limited (ˇ§Sundayˇ¨) burst onto the scene in 1997 with an innovative approach to branding and promotion. Its series of ˇ§feels like Sundayˇ¨ 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?
