Since I haven't seen it pointed out (sorry if I missed it) a huge part of making a mission successful is marketing. There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of missions in the Foundry, and unless you have some super mission that gets nothing but 5 stars, it's going to get buried. It's up to you to let people know.
Advertise it on the forums, there's a whole subsection dedicated to listing new missions.
Advertise it on StarbaseUGC.com.
Make a trailer/promotional poster. (Great to advertise on the above.)
Put an eye-catching graphic in your signature.
Getting one of the Foundry podcasts to review it: PodcastUGC, Foundry Files, Priority One, BroadcastUGC and PrimetimeUGC.
If you feel your mission is good enough you can submit it for featuring.
