Bundling is the process of combining multiple products or services within a unique offering. Unbundling is the opposite; it consists of taking one part of an offering (often the most valuable) and provide it as a stand-alone product and service at a more reasonable price. Bundling is usually effective as an expansion strategy, as more products and services are added. Unbundling instead works well as a market entry strategy. The newcomer can take only the part of an incumbent offering, break it apart, and offer that as a lower-priced alternative to quickly gain traction.
