    Keep trying. In the beginning my sounded like utter shit, I was trying out different genres, where I wanted to go, just figuring my DAW out and stuff.
    Then you just gradually get better. Keep making new tracks, keep using different methods, try to push yourself to try new stuff. When using alot of samples: make a track with any sample, when only using vsts, maybe a track with only samples will teach you alot.
    Look around at forums (like this), look at usefull(!) tutorials to learn new stuff.

    There isn't really a way to suddenly become good and sound proffesional, trial and error mate. And before you know it, you'll make a track and think "this is actually pretty good"

    Study and soak up as much info/tips/tutorials as you can. Then experiment with them and practice them.

    or learn proper mixing and then use a small number of mastering tools! You can sausage your crappy mix into something loud as hell without making it sound more professional using a lot of mastering tools, or you can use the ones that are necessary, when they are necessary!

    No offense, but brickwall limiting crap ends up being -0,1 dBFS crap. A good song without "proper mastering" is a lot better than a horrible song with bad sounds, bad structuring and bad mixing that has been mastered to perfection using only hardware tube stereo compressors, 58638209$ vintage EQs and a oil rig brickwall penthouse compressor. Or that "SUPER LOUD HIFI EQ CURVE 2014 BIGROOM NOISIA SKRILLEX SLAYER" -multiband compression phase EQ adaptive limiter plugin. Blergh.

    But then again, it's just my two cents...
