In order to compete with professional musicians, you need your tracks to have that final polished sound. Mastering is not only about making a song louder. It's about adjusting the frequencies and keeping the dynamics using limiters, various compressors and intense active listening to get a desirable competitive tone on any listening device (Head-phones, car speakers, mobile phone, etc...).
I love using reference tracks because every genre is different, and it gives me a map to follow so you're really happy with the end result. This works by you telling me the name of a song that you love "how the mastering sounds on" thats similar to your genre. Then I listen back and forth, to try to get your song as close as I can to that sound.
