Missouri Knowledge

Why host and recruit a project in Missouri?

A state rich in history, heritage and culture, Missouri offers a number of reasons to conduct market research in state.

  • Missouri is home to two large population hubs: St. Louis in the east and Kansas City in the west.
  • Missouri is a major center of agriculture and manufacturing.
  • The center of population of the United States sits within Missouri, making it a major transportation and distribution hub.
  • Missouri has a rich historical and cultural heritage, from westward expansion to the civil war, which offers a rich context for research.

Quality In-House Database

Recruiting is what we do, and we do it well.  Good recruits make good research.

Our full-time, in-house recruiting team has years of experience, and we know how to find the best recruits in the toughest markets across the south.  From the city to the country, let us find the recruits you need with a recruiting team that recruits the EmCee Way:

  • Full-time recruiters
  • Extensive training in best practices
  • Collaborative project managers
  • Experienced recruiters
  • Project onboarding measured in hours, not days.

We screen every recruit fully over the phone and re-confirm via phone, text, and email and have a minimum of five points of contact.

  • Initial phone screening
  • Confirmation call 1-2 days before a group
  • Confirmation email 2-3 days before a group
  • Confirmation text 1-2 days before a group
  • Confirmation text & email 30-60 minutes before a group
Not only are our recruiters great at what they do, they’re working with an engaged panel of participants built from the ground up.  We never purchase lists and we’re always growing our panel to find fresh new participants.
