I think static sites have a much lower barrier for entry for many clients, especially when they just need simple feedback forms or contact pages. I made a static hosting service for my classmates to use for their web projects. We weren't taught about deployment as a part of the class, and they needed an easy way to get their projects online.
I was kinda inspired by Glitch, but they needed a way to upload static files that they'd already written, and allowing them to drag files into the browser to deploy to a site is a pretty cool experience.
