Taping gives them a chance of standing, but there's no guarantee even with proper taping any dog’s ears will stand. I'm not against taping a purebred's ears for a breed that are meant to stand to try and help if needed, but taping a mix where the chance could be slim to none depending on the genetics...personally I wouldn't bother. But that's just my opinion

They're either going to stand or not based on genetics.
So why tape any dog's ears? Just trying to follow the logic

OP - something you could do is contact a local GSD breeder, preferably a SL breeder as they deal with soft ears more often then WL and get them to teach you how to properly do them. I don't have enough experience to comment on whether you did it right or not but I would get someone experienced to look at it just to make sure.
