1: Be meticulous: If you want a good result from your hard work, you must pay very close attention to details. You can't just pass over a map right after you've just finished it. You must always check it over several times to make sure that there are no structural problems of any sort.
2: Theming: with a project, you must always add some pizzazz. Take a simple stone hallway. You should add elements that give it a authentic and epic feel to it. You should always try to come out with your own unique theme.
3: Advertising and Screenshots: One of the most important elements to a good map is the way you advertise it. First of all, you should give it a cool name. Second of all, you should get some good screenshots for the project, especially ones that show the most of the project as possible. Third of all, effects should be added to those screenshots. I suggest using Paint.net. The best effects on that for screenshots are in the "effects"tab. Try using "soften photo", "glow", or "sharpen".
4: Project description: In order to convince someone to download your hard work, you should describe your project well. It can be concise, or it can be lengthy, but both options should always describe the map well. It shouldn't just be something like "This is creeper pixel art."
I hope I have helped you onto a path of making really EPIC maps. Stay crafting my friends :)
