Had this conversation recently of static sites VS something like Wordpress, and the truth is, at the end of the day, clients really don't care about technologies, they care about scalability, SEO, posts, and Plugin support. Using something like Gatsby for static site generation isn't the best solution unless you use Netlify. In conclusion, using static sites without a service like Netlify is a huge NO.
