  <div class="ajax_response_result"></div>
  <input type="button" class="btn btn-primary" id="click_form" value="Submit" />
  </div>
</form>

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
  $(document).on('click','#click_form',function(){
    jQuery.ajax({
    type: "POST",
    url: "<?php echo site_url('welcome/ajax_signup') ?>",    
    data: $("#reg_form").serialize(),
    success: function(res) {
     $(".ajax_response_result").html(res);
     }
    });
