What do you mean loudness? What are you specifically not satisfied with? What LUFS/TP values are you targeting? Are all tracks gain staged?

What actions have you already made in your mix like track EQ, compression, transients and other basic mixing techniques?

When I'm not satisfied how an instrument or instrument group is coming across I often peruse Parallel compression. But before that I spent numerous hours understanding gain staging, EQing and dynamics, so it's a part of a larger system I kinda have adopted and evolved. I assume that's how everyone ends up.

One good way to learn how what actions give what end result, I think, is to make multiple mixes of short simple songs where you explore different techniques in short focused sessions. This should be on musical material you like but you have little invested in, like some idea you play around with as an experiment.
Make some music!
